Spread the word on social media
You have heard that links, likes, shares, etc on social media are good for your websites SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and this is true. However, a link form a social media site is not classed as a true backlink. If you want those then you have to spread the words about your website on social media. You need to get people off social media and onto your website so that they can fall in love with it and link to it of their own accord. Beware however, that currently, the highest recorded percentage for getting people from social media is 27%. So, for example, do not expect all of your Facebook friends to suddenly go on your website and then start linking to it.
Add content to some legitimate article sites
You may have heard a lot of bad things about article sites, but a lot of the information has been confused. Google only penalizes and removes article sites that are breaking their quality guidelines and rules. There are still lots of legitimate article sits out there. You can add your content to them and receive a working link that is recognized by Google.
Buy a link from legitimate directories
Again, Google removed a lot of directories from its search engine results, but there are still some online that you may legitimately purchase a link from. These are often websites that are there to help customers find a merchant or service provider. So for example, if your run a carpet fitting service, then there are a few legitimate directories to help people find carpet fitters. You may add yourself onto their index/directory for a price, and receive a working link as a result.

Get a link from other people’s Websites
If you make a lot of friends online then they may link to your blog posts of their own accord. If not, can you convince them to install a permanent link from their site to your site? Maybe you can pay to have a permanent advert placed on their site.
You get add links from your own websites
If you have more than one website, then link them all up. Add several links from different pages. Try to keep related pages linked to related pages if you can.
Post a link from your own blog(s)
If you have a blog then link from it, just the same as if you have a website then link to your blog from it.
Guest post on other people’s blogs
This is a common enough practice, and there are a lot of blogs who now accept blog post submissions. It may be difficult to get the blog webmaster to agree to post your guest post, but submit enough over the months and some of them are bound to post your guest posts.
Hire a content and link disseminator
Be careful if you do this, as they may employ black-Hat SEO techniques. Still, if they are legitimate then it can save you a lot of time looking for places to link from and then writing for them (or submitting to them).
