How to Build Backlinks Without Paying for Them
Right then, I’ve got something really cool to share with you today…
I’m going to be showing you where you can get a ton of backlinks to your website for free.
So if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to boost your rankings in Google today, this is it.
Now, these are no normal backlinks…
In fact, these are super powerful backlinks that will give your site a HUGE boost in the search results.
So you’re probably wondering, what makes these backlinks so special, right?
Well let me breakdown what makes these type of backlinks so powerful…
First up, these backlinks are going to be coming from extremely high authority websites.
Using Moz’s Domain Authority metric, the lowest will be DA87 and the highest will a DA99.
So yeah, from an SEO ranking point of view, these backlinks are as good as they get, really.
Secondly, all these backlinks are going to be dofollow as well.
So every backlink you get from these sites will be passing link juice to your site.
And with these being high authority websites, the’ll be passing a lot of link juice your way…
Thirdly, and finally, you’ll be building these backlinks without paying for them either…
So not only will you get high authority dofollow backlinks to boost your rankings in Google…
You won’t have to invest in any programs, software or buy backlinks from sites either.
Sounds good? It should do because your site is going to get a HUGE BOOST after going through this post 🙂
Anyway, here’s how to build DA90+ dofollow backlinks without paying for them…
Site 1. Teespring.com – Domain Authority: 87
The first one on the list is called Teespring and this site will allow you to setup your own store selling merchandise.
You can sell everything from mugs, t-shirts, phone cases and tons of other stuff as well.
It’s very popular with Youtubers and other influencers as they use Teespring to sell their own merchandise.
Now to get a dofollow backlink from Teespring, you’ll first need to set up your own store…
When setting up your own Teespring store, you’ll also need to create your own merchandise as well.
If you’re in this just for the backlink, then don’t worry, you don’t have to spend too much time doing this…
Just write your name in Teespring’s built-in graphic editor then plaster that image on all of your merchandise.
To give you an idea what I mean, then take a look at some of the “delightful” products I sell on Teespring:
Now obviously if you want to actually use Teespring to sell your own merchandise, then you’ll need to spend more time on the design side of things.
If, however, you’re like me and you’re just in it for the backlink, then you can throw up something on par to what I’ve done.
Once you’ve set up your own Teespring store, go to the Store Editor then click “About” and place your link there:
Click “Save” then visit your store’s “About” tab and you should see your backlink there:
Once you’ve done that, here’s the next site on how to build backlinks without paying for them…
Site 2. Patreon.com – Domain Authority: 90
Patreon is another website popular with social media influencers and it allows their fanbase to donate money to them.
Now I’d recommend to set up monthly tiers if possible, otherwise Google may not want to index your Patreon page.
Backlink wise, you can simply put a link to your website on the About section on your Patreon page.
Here’s how I’ve currently got mine set up:
Personally, I’d say this is pretty low effort, and as a result, I do plan to set up actual monthly tiers with rewards at some point.
Like I said, when you do this, Google is much more likely to index your page.
Plus, Patreon are less likely to unpublish your page and ask you to work on it until it’s at a satisfactory level.
Anyway, once you’ve placed your backlink on Patreon, then it’s time to move onto the next high authority website…
Site 3. Udemy.com – Domain Authority: 91
Udemy is a site where you can enrol for both free and paid courses on every subject imaginable.
So whether you want to learn SEO, graphics design or online marketing… Udemy as you covered.
You can also submit your own courses there and let others enrol for free or sell them to make money.
Me personally, I use Udemy to drive traffic to my sites by submitting free courses there due to the traffic being extremely high quality.
Anyway, to get a backlink from Udemy, there is a few hoops you’ll need to jump through first…
This is because you need a “Instructor” account which needs to be verified first.
Once you’ve been verified and have an instructor account, you can then get a very valuable dofollow backlink from Udemy.
Here’s how to get that valuable dofollow backlink from Udemy…
First up, hover your mouse over your avatar until the dropdown menu appears then click on “Edit profile”
Then fill in your profile details and write a brief description about yourself and what you’ll be offering on Udemy.
While filling in your profile details, you can enter your website URL in the “Website” box:
Click “Save” then visit your public profile and you should see the “Website” button which links to your site:
And that’s how to get a high authority dofollow backlink from Udemy.
Once you’ve done that, here’s the next site on how to backlinks without paying for them…
Site 4. Twitch.tv – Domain Authority: 93
Twitch is basically a streaming site used by gamers and – yup, you guessed it – influencers to build their following online.
All you need to do to get a dofollow backlink from Twitch is to simply create a free account.
Once you’ve created your Twitch channel, then click on “Edit”.
From there, go to the “Social Links” section and enter your anchor and URL like so:
Once you’ve done that, then click “Save” and head back to your Twitch channel homepage.
You then should be able to see the link to your site when you click on the “About” tab:
Once again, consider adding some content as this will help to get your Twitch channel indexed quicker.
Site 5. Microsoft.com – Domain Authority: 99
I think we’ve all heard of Microsoft and used at least one of their products or services.
Well as it goes, Microsoft has a website where you can sign up and help people with their products.
It’s kinda like Yahoo Answers or Quora where you answer people’s questions and the best ones float to the top.
However, this time, this is 100% dedicated to answering people’s questions on all things Microsoft.
Now don’t worry, you don’t have to be a whizkid on Microsoft products…
In fact, you don’t need to know anything about Microsoft, you just need to create a free account.
So if you haven’t done so yet, create a free Microsoft account (if you’ve got a Hotmail or Outlook email account, you’ve already got a Microsoft account).
Then head to the Microsoft Answers website through this link:
Set up your Microsoft Answers profile by clicking on your avatar in the upper-right corner then click “Edit profile”:
Then write a little blurb about yourself…
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just introduce yourself and how you’re looking forward to meeting the community etc.
Then, on the same page, enter your URL and anchor in the following boxes:
Once you’ve done that, scroll down, click “Save” and you’re done.
When you visit your Microsoft Answers profile, you should see your description and the anchored dofollow backlink to your site.
Once you’ve done that, here’s how to build backlinks without paying for them from the next high authority website…
Site 6. Blogger.com – Domain Authority: 99
Now you’re probably sat there thinking you just need to set up a blogger account then simply create a post with your link in it?
If so, that’s not going to get you a dofollow backlink from a website with a 99 domain authority rating.
In fact, if you do that, it’ll only get you a backlink from a website with a domain authority rating of 1… Which is practically worthless.
So how do you pull off this amazing feat, I hear you cry? Well read on and I’ll explain…
First up, set up a blog on Blogger as you usually would (if you’ve already got a blog on Blogger, you can use that one if you want).
Then visit your blog’s homepage then click on “View my complete profile” then click “Edit Profile”:
Now on the Edit Profile page, you may notice you can put a link to your website in the “Homepage URL” box.
However, this is worthless from an SEO point of view because the link will be nofollow (still put your link there though as it may drive traffic to your website).
So what we need to do is to scroll down to the “Additional Information” and go to the “Introduction” box:
All you need to do here is to write a blurb about you and what your blog will be about.
We now need to place your website URL in the Introduction box.
However, placing your URL as is in the introduction box will result in your link not being clickable, therefore sending zero link juice to your website.
So what we need to do is to use HTML tags to make your website URL clickable.
Here’s the HTML code I used:
<a href=”https://www.james-scholes.com”>James Scholes</a>
You’ll obviously need to change the URL and the name of the site to your URL and website name.
Once you’ve done that, then click the “Save Profile” button.
Then scroll up, click on “View Updated Profile” and this will take you to your profile page:
You’ll notice your website URL is now clickable in your Introduction box.
Using Mozbar Chrome extension, you should see that your profile page is sat on the actual Blogger domain itself which has a domain authority rating of 99… Nice!
And that’s how to build DA90+ dofollow backlinks without paying for them 🙂
So go forth and create these backlinks to your website for free.
After creating these backlinks, you should see your site’s authority go up considerably after a few weeks.
This in turn should give all the posts on your site push up in the rankings which will result in your website getting more traffic.
Hope you got a lot of value from today’s training anyway…
