5 Ways to Create a Million Backlinks Innovatively

When I talk about innovativeness, this is certain that I am not talking about stupid applications or spamming machines to increase your backlinks.

While there are many reasons which make you rank good at search engines, what brings things in competition is the number of links to your site by other sites called backlinks. You must have seen stupid premium applications that promise you to increase your backlinks. But you know and I know neither spamming your links nor paying these creeps would help you rank better at search engines. You will have to think innovatively for yourself to do something and no premium packages will help you out. You will have to think outside the box.

There are few things you might consider doing which will actually exponentially increase your backlinks

  1. If your site is in initial state, you should consider leaving comments at bigger blogs from same niche. Do not spam. Leave comments that actually make sense. This will create a backlink for you and will allow others to check out your new site too.
  2. If you have multiple sites, include a link to your other sites through footer. The footer appears on each page of your site and so the backlinks would be equal to the number of pages at that site.
  3. Keeping in mind the above process, I have an even better idea ;). Why not do something to reach the footer of other sites? That would increase your backlinks like numer_of_pages_on_one_site * number_of_sites. To reach the footer of other sites, you can think about creating a nice wordpress theme and mentioning in footer that theme is created by you. If you think creating a theme is not something you can do then I think you are missing this great free software to create wordpress themes easily for free. Suppose you created a theme that is used by 5 other blogs and all those blogs have 1000 pages each then that means you just made yourself 5000 backlinks. Reaching 5 blogs with a theme is a lot lesser than what you should target. You can target 100s blogs with 100s pages each and hence making yourself a million backlinks. Try submitting your theme for free to all major theme sites like WordPress themes directory, Templates Browser, Top WP Themes, Natty WP and many more (Search at Google).
  4. While gathering information to write an article, you go through lots of sites first. Try to link all those from your post. This will encourage others and them to mention the source of information always and hence encourage backlinking. This will also add a pingback or trackback to your blog from their blog. Trackback means whenever you link a blog from your posts that blog automatically mentions at it’s trackbacks that this post is linked from the following sites, creating a backlink for you.
  5. Think innovative. It’s always better to lead than to follow. Keeping in mind the above tips, try to create a method yourself, which might allow you to increase backlinks in such exponential way. Trust me that method will work best for you.

  1. Thanks for the tips. I understood the first two, didnt quite understand the last 3 tips.

    But i’ll give it a shot :)

    Im an active genuine commenter on many blogs, but many tend to have a pagerank of 0, does that matter? Also, ihave 2 sites for which i need to create a backlink, how do i decide which to backlink too each time?

    1. Hey khurram,
      the last 3 are most important. First 2 are for starters. Pagerank 0 backlinks has less value usually. It is said now that Pageranks don’t matter much. However, I believe they do. Pageranks simply tell the quality of your site in the eyes of Google and quality site ranks higher doesn’t it? Moreover the value of backlinks depends on domain too in this sequence .Gov, .Edu, .Org and then .Com. This value of domain was confirmed to me by Mr Badar Khushnood, the Pakistan representative of Google.

      About creating backlinks for 2 sites.
      You should follow point number 2 and while commenting on other blogs, write the url which is more related to that site. For example if I have to leave a comment on entertainment site I should create backlinks for entertainment site and If im commenting on a tech site I should make backlinks for tech site. Thanks for the comment :)

  2. Great list! I like the 4th most and I agree that you should first link to other relevant blogs and you can soon expect some of them or even all of them to link back to you sometimes in future…

    That;s definitely the best tip for getting long-term backlinks.


    1. Thanks for the comment Gennice :) I am glad you liked the point number 4. That is something which is going to trigger the process of backlinks in the best way

  3. Yaro Starak also suggests that (if we can) one should hire a developer from rentacoder.com (or was it .net?) to develop an add-on for Firefox and some of the other browsers. It’ll help getting traffic from the add-ons site AND give tons of backlinks!

    And if I were legally an adult, I’d go ahead and hire some designer to make a theme. A theme which would be similar to Arclite (in use on http://artsyhands.com/ ) and be fully compatible with IE6 and IE7.

  4. And of course, there’s always the option to build backlinks through Wikipedia… It’s rather risky as they usually pick up stinkers. But if you’re article is relevant to the Wikipedia page, they will not remove the link. And keep in mind that it’s a .org site.

    1. I agree with you Waisybabu. Actually there are a lot more tips I could add to that post, I only summed em up to my 5 favorite ones. Having links at wikipedia is cool, you need to go slow and steedy :)

  5. Getting backlinks from trackbacks and by making wp themes and giving away free with ur site link in the footer will give a great boost and exposure to our site. i have tried this and my blogs backlinks are in big numbers

  6. i think i am too late to visit your site
    great stuff buddy.
    3rd point is really great but how often people create templates for worpress or other cms.
    its not an easy task but i ll try for that. because once its done backlinks will grow exponentially.

    I am afraid that some of the developers, while using themes, change the footer links also but i think i should try.
    Thanks for the post Hamad
