As my experience, even Google updated their algorithms carefully and unfamiliar, but the "truth" of two factors help you getting highest rank on the search results rapidly have not changed, they are "good content and quality backlinks".

Focus on building good content is now also very important and appreciated by Google. Also, the building backlink campaigns are now very high risk, but if you don't care about backlinks for your site, that is flawed. Only backlinks can help you survive long on the top of search results.

So how writing good content and also generating many valuable backlinks is our goal. A good content can help you get a lot of natural backlinks is something that everyone knows already. But the biggest problem is to select what content to write for getting the most quality backlinks.

In this article I will share with you some personal experience of writing content to build passive backlinks (natural backlinks).The benefit of this method is helping you getting quality backlinks completely passive and long, difficult (or impossible) to be punished by Google.

1. Detail or Unique Articles

We must understand that if you want to be pointed links by someone to your posts, you must make them thinking that your articles contains many rewarding valuable information that they would recommend to others. At least, your posts could also solve a hard problem because no one will link back to a post like many other articles on the Internet.

Writing these kinds of article is not not difficult, you just need to invest much time into refining and finding relevant information and then transform those information into a coherent article.

2. Photos Post or Infographic

There are two very simple reasons why the posts contain images will be shared at most:

  • You'll spend a lot of effort if you want to store and edit photos of the original post.
  • If the photo is Infographic, then even more people want to link back to original post, simply bacause that image will take a lot of host bandwidth if you store on your hosting. And if you upload to a free online photo service, the image will have not a standard size and color, or have no long age.

And one more, there is one external ability that only Infographic has, that is visualization. Just with a picture you can convey a lot of messages to readers and they can understand it easily.

3. Giveaway

Do you think that small gift programs or big prize giveaway will help you building more backlinks? Of course, yes. And better if you ask to share your post to get the prize. However, the link quality of this method may not be good.

But if you need a large amount of backlink or traffic to your initial website / blog, you can use this way. This method is useful, but remember to avoid taking gifts from another website then use for your own.

Domain Authority is a rating index start from 0 to 100 for all domain names based on more than 150 factors which are analyzed from rankings on Google.This is a measure to assess the quality of a domain and was published by SEOmoz community.

If your Domain Authority index is hight that means that you are doing SEO as right direction, and naturally. Of course, try to increase this index is also a way to optimize your SEO campaign. But how to optimize it when it is calculated based on more than 150 different factors?

We can not optimize all those 150 factors (including the main factors and sub-factors around), so we will just focus on three important factors which affect most of other factors in Domain Authority index. What are they?

3 Main Factors in Domain Authority Index

1) Domain Age

Too easy to understand, domain age means the time from the initialized date of website to the current time. Higher domain age, higher search engine trusted points. There is a "myth" that if you start a new website with a 5 years old domain, the website do not need to undergo a strict "quarantine" period of Google (was usually called Google Sandbox).

Of course, the older the domain, the more positive impact to the Domain Authority.

2) Domain Popularity

It's simple, more backlinks your domain got, higher domain popularity level. Before think about the pressure job in building backlink, just think like this: if your blog has useful content and a lot of people like (or they are fans), then maybe they will introduce it on other websites, blogs or social networks. So your domain will become popular with many people, right?

But domain popularity does not mean that you have to spam as many backlinks as possible. I am not sure what will be used by Google to identify where are the natural backlinks (because your readers are self-promotion or other person referred to) and what are "unnatural" backlinks (posted by you on other websites). But I think only the domain with the actually natural backlink will impact on domain popularity. If you overdo backlink building tips, then sooner or later, you will get into trouble.

3) Domain Size

we can understand size of your domain is the number of pages from your website which were indexed by Google (and other search engines). More pages were index, higher domain size and better Domain Authority.

Another element, if you have many links pointing to your site (inbound links), it is better for domain size. But want to have more inbound links and indexed pages, nothing other than creating compelling, quality and diversity content.

5 Tips to Improve Domain Authority?

Seem the backlink building job is quite boring when we have to do it again and again, but to improve the Domain Authority, the most important factor is still quality backlink. And here are some safest ways that you can refer to increases Domain Authority.

1) Guest Blogging - Symbiotic

The word "symbiosis" means we must "live" on other site like home, right?! And if you want to optimize Domain Authority, at first, find a suitable blog for writing your post, then ask "host" for you to contribute by writing to keep the heat of their blog. In return, they must allow you to insert dofollow backlinks pointing to your own website, as two mutually beneficial.

For web-masters, increase their website loading speed is always the top issues to bring the best experience for the visitor. If a website is slow when access, it definitely hard to retain visitors.

But before talk about on how to accelerate your website, we need to know how can we test the true speed of your website to avoid confusion for beginners. In this article I will go over in detail how to test the actual speed of a website and some notices when we do those tests.

1. What will factors affect website speed?

Loading speed of a web page on the browser will depend on many factors, here you can refer some basic elements as following:

1.1) The location of your server

This is the most important factor to appreciate the true speed of a website. If location of the server is closer to people, they will access it quicker. Because if the server is in other countries, the connection must go through many different open networks, so they should consume more time to access.

In some special cases, such as undersea cable off, if you visit a website which is hosted overseas, you will see the speed is incredible slower. Therefore, if you have purchased a host, please prioritize choose local country host providers or nearly servers.

1.2) The ability to process access requests of server

When you visit a page on the website, the browser will send an access request to the Web server, then the web-server accept and classify then send requirements to other applications if it need, such as PHP, MySQL, Ruby, ... Those applications will calculate and return back the results to web server which will response this result to the browser, then the browser will process and display the response data.

Thus, if your sever is good with high-speed internet connection but was not configured correctly, it will be slower time by time in ability to handle errors and will make people waiting longer before they can access.

Regarding this situation, try to optimize the code within the site well and limiting errors / bugs as least as possible. For the server, you can use other techniques to increase data processing speed on the server such as cache for the website, optimized PHP code processing capabilities (you can use APC , XCache)

1.3) Website Data Size

If your site has too many images which will make content size increase up to the tens of megabytes, it has surely long load times even you have a good server. At that time, loading speed will depend on the quality of the access network, if the network is fast, it will load 10MB in a snap but it's a problem if the network is rugged.

Therefore, you should avoid using large image sizes as possible, and combine steps to optimize images as the right way to use on your website.

1.4) Data buffering in the browser

Modern browsers nowadays have the ability to save the content of websites in the cache on your computer to reuse if it have to access the website again. This method will help browser displaying website faster because has no extra time to reload the content from web server. For example, browser can store the entire content of the website, or save the attachments such as CSS, JavaScript, images, flash, ....

Therefore, you should set your website to allow browsers compress content as gzip and store it in the cache for faster access to visitors at the return visits.

Building backlinks is probably the most discussed topic in discussions about SEO. Unlike on-page SEO, off-page SEO (build backlinks) has no any limitation on the applied methods. A backlink building method is effective or not depending on qualifications and the creation of your campaign. Summary, the purpose of building backlink is trying to put your website link on other sites as much as possible, a link with dofollow attribute placed on high PR pages is even more wonderful.

I've got many questions around backlink building issues: "How to build backlinks for my blog effectively?", How to find good website for building dofollow backlinks? How to build backlinks to avoid Google penalty?".etc... and many similar questions, but my answer is very simple:

Just build backlinks as a natural way, go to where they try to complement content, comments then by the way, link back to your website. No matter what it is dofollow or nofollow, just do not spam.

But why I say no matter what it is dofollow or nofollow?

Dear friends, Google can identify a backlink purchasing behavior by checking your dofollow backlink rate. Of course, those backlink like that will carry two attribute "dofollow and high page rank." So if you do not want Google sending mail that you are creating an unnatural linking campaign, you should maintain nofollow and dofollow ratio is 50/50.

Next, for many newcomers, don't try to learn how to find dofollow blog, how to build quality backlinks. Just building backlink as your own way, focus a site and apply your strategy. Gradually you will know how to adjust the method to construct more effective backlinks. That is my honest advice.

But for more easy for you to know what to do to get backlinks, I would like to share with you 33 tips which will help you get both quality and normal backlinks.

33 Tips to Building Backlinks Effectively

1. Create a quality post like my current post by yourself. Generally, people will think an article like this will be very valuable for someone, and it is hard to resist them for sharing or just copy to their website.

2. Create a general tutorial like "10 tricks to find dofollow blogs". Imagine you are looking to learn about SEO, then you know and understand what is the thing that other people need to find dofollow blog, so you will know what to do.

4. Create a summarize post from popular articles of a certain topic. It is helpful for those who are looking for a particular article with minimum time.

5. Try to write a true "huge" and detail article as much as possible. You will see a few backlinks from other sites pointing to your articles because they copied our post. Of course, don't forget inserting internal backlinks in your article.

6. Write the topics that you sure many people will understand what you want to convey and get a lot of attention. Such as scandal, satire, .etc..

7. Spend time to Fix typos, punctuation, line breaks. If you write in English it is even more important, nobody want to quote an article with too many spelling mistakes.

In this article, we you learn about what is a quality backlink, where to build backlinks to achieve the highest efficiency, and all factors that can help you getting a lot of quality backlinks for your site.

Factor #1: Backlinks from reputable and famous sites

The first factor that we must know in order to determine a quality backlink is that your backlinks are linked from reputable and famous sites. For example if you have a few backlinks from SmashingMagazine, TheVerge or TheNextWeb, that means those backlinks are very high quality.

Why? Because Google is always aware that the content or outbound links from from those such websites are extremely quality, those sites have a very long period of publishing time and achieved high rankings on popular keywords.

Also, for each site, we have two indexes which are called Page Authority and Domain Authority to measure the quality of the site. Higher Page Authority and Domain Authority index value means higher be trusted by Google. If your backlinks appear on those sites like that, they are also very good in quality. You can use Moonsy Page Authority to check those indexes.

Factor #2: Backlinks from high PR pages

PageRank (PR) has always been a benchmark for evaluating each website's ranking on search engines which is indicated by Google. A website with higher PR will be priority showed on the higher position in search result than lower or none PR sites.

From 2012, PR is no longer so important as it used to, but overall it is still a standard for assessing the quality of a website and a high PR website still has a slight advantage.

Have many opinions consider that backlinks from high PR website are not really quality like widely rumored, but as my personal experience (and tests), I think backlinks which are placed on high PR websites are always good quality, of course, they must have a relevant content which the website that you putted your links.

That is why, if you place your links on unrelated PR 5-7 websites (have some cheap services do that) or trying to create as many new N/A PR websites and building links with them, it's total waste of time or Google just don't care about your links.

Factor #3: Backlinks from the same content pages

This factor has always been mentioned in the basic SEO tutorials. If you do not have the ability to create backlinks from high Page Rank or Page Authority websites, your most effective now is creating backlinks on the website with the same content. Those pages of course not need to have high ranking.

For example if you have a blog about WordPress or SEO tricks, you can build backlinks from a website about blogging or marketing tips. Or if you are a guest blogger for some websites, you'll have right to insert your backlink in your guest article. That would be quality backlinks because the guest site and your site have the same content. That will help Google appreciate your backlinks to improve site ranking.

But do not worry if you created backlinks from low PR and a none relevant websites, because if those sites are not in Google's blacklist, this thing is not too serious, and you can build links normally. But it's good for you for building links on relevant website if you are investing a big SEO campaign for your business.

These tips are from my personal experience. Let me tell you a story: one of my readers contacted me and told that my Feedburner form was no longer working, then recommend me fix it. He also suggested me some tips to help my blog getting more traffic after he realize that my website has a lot of awesome things but has no huge reader number.

So, what did I answer? Come on, just imagine a strange guy somewhere give you an incredible feedback without request any remuneration, what will you do? Of course, I said thanks to him very much, but that's not enough. So I decided to add his website as a backlink on my right sidebar.

I know he has no any personal motivation when give his feedback on my site, he just want to help. And that's why he's deserve to get a gift from me. But you can also apply this tips as a professional way to build backlinks for your site.

Step 1. Find relevant websites

At first, we must identify sites which have the same content with our websites. I choose Google as my favorite way to do that. To find the best websites correctly, we should apply some advanced search commands and we can combine them together. But to better understand the newbies, I will use the following search commands to identify sites with the same content.

"Blogging Tips" site: OR .com OR .info OR .net OR .org OR .edu OR .gov -inurl:pdf -inurl:ppt -inurl:doc

Explain: the above search command will find all websites and pages which contain keyword "Blogging Tips" and have domain suffixes .com / .info / .net / .org / .edu / .gov, but exclude all .pdf, .ppt, .doc file types.

Google Search Results for Commands

After we had a list of website, we will save them as a plain list. Of course, we don't do this manually, we will a bookmarklet script. Just drag and drop below button to your browser bookmark bar, then return back to Google Search Result page and click the button on your bookmark bar:

The script will create a new page with information about the links in your Google search result page. Just save Plain list as a text file, so we will use in next steps.

And remember, don't save the first page of Google search result, that page contains only top websites with high page-rank, of course those sites like that will have no errors for you to find, and a website with +2 page-rank will never add your site as a backlink even you suggested them many useful feedback.

Optimize each content page is always the most important goal to improve the ranking of blog after Google updated their algorithm regularly. It means that if you are a blogger, each of your posts on the blog must be optimized maximally (even manually) to improve the ranking on a search engine for your site.

I don't mention about how to write a rational and quality post, because it is a personal choice and style. You can write what you like as long as that readers understand what you convey. But a quality article is not only good because its content but also must be fully optimized to create the most favorable conditions for the search engine bots to index and evaluate through the use of appropriate keywords and optimization. After I learned much experience from writing for my blog, I would like to introduce to you 4 things to do when writing to SEO articles better for improving the ranking.

1. Understand what you will write

The main goal of an article is providing useful information to readers. So before "touching the keyboard" to write whatever something, you should spend about a certain amount of time to consider what you will write about, what value you will provide to readers, those who need to see it and most important thing is: will it match the current trend or not?

We (bloggers) sometimes make a common mistake that we focused too much on creating content to serve the reader, but not really to spend maximum time to care little that readers actually like to read it or not. An article called quality when it has fully expressed and depth content, provide exactly what you want to tell to the reader, and it must be supported by many people - I mean that many people like it. Below are some 5 content trends can lead interested readers:

  1. Writing guides - detailed tutorials on a particular topic.
  2. Writing about the events that may be controversial. This way is a bit dangerous but very effective.
  3. Make a collection, example: "5 tips for SEO content", "10 best dishes for summer", ...
  4. Rewriting and add details to the news which is hot in the world or your niche.
  5. Review a person, talk about other's posts, or decry some thing.

There are some in these 5 trends may not good for SEO, but it can make your readers interested. So if you want Google attend your site, you must focus into entertain your audience first.

2. Focus into increasing traffic first

If you set a goal that you blog must go to the top of search results, and when you receive visitors from search engines that means success. But in the process of SEO, you should not wait for the visitors come from search engines. Instead, you must be looking for ways to increase traffic immediately in the early days of deploying the blog, it is extremely beneficial in assessing your website ranking on search engines.
