Backlinks are when other websites link back to your website and this is very important in SEO as it basically tells search engines that other websites trust you and are voting for you.
There are different ways you can get these backlinks and we will look at them below:
1. Add your website to directories
You should make sure that you get added to multiple directories. These can be local, national, and international directories such as this.
2. Write guest blog posts
Make sure that you write guest blog posts for reputable sites.
3. Be interviewed by media
Contribute to local articles or be interviewed by the news. You can also use HARO (Help A Reporter Out)
4. Be a guest on podcasts
When you are interviewed on a podcast you will get a backlink by the host providing your details in their show notes
