5 Great Ways to Build Backlinks By Giving Away Stuff

One of the biggest problems for some people is that they're not sure how to acquire backlinks in an ethical and natural way. Yes posting comments on blogs and in forums is a great way to gain backlinks, but this can really be time-consuming and will only get you so much link juice. That is why I'm going to show you 5 great ways to build backlinks by giving away stuff.

1. Build a Free Website Theme or Plugin

Have you ever downloaded a free WordPress theme or plugin and noticed how they put one of those sneaky backlinks in somewhere? Just about every one of have this and it's a great way that can bring you a ton of backlinks if you create something that has value for an in demand niche. 

2. Get Reviews From Other Bloggers

Finding relevant blogs in your niche and asking them to give a review on your product is a great way to gain relevant do follow backlinks. All you have to do is give them your product for free and ask for a link back to your website in return. You'll be surprised at how many people are willing to do this.

3. Give Away Free Stuff 

If you go to a busy city street during rush hour and give away something useful, you will probably gain some attention because people like spontaneous things that are useful in every day life. This can be something as simple as pens and pencils or I've even seen miniature sanitizer bottles with a company name on them. People will be bound to Tweet about it or write on Facebook.

4. Offer a Free Trial

Give a free trial of your product or website for a limited time only. This will give people a chance to decide if they like your product or service and then whether or not they want to make the purchase. People will often blog about this or even use social media to talk about it. The Wealthy Affiliate University had a $1 trial for 7 days earlier this year and saw a lot of success with it.

5. Contact Industry Experts

If you have anybody that you see as a mentor in your industry, send them your product for free and let them tell you what they think. You can talk to these people and then ask if they will mention you in one of their blogs to gain the respect from others by an expert in your niche.

There are lots of other ways to build backlinks such as blog commenting strategies and becoming active in forums, but the backlinks that come naturally are usually the ones which make the most impact on your search engine rankings and popularity.
