    Hi Srikanth,

    All of your suggestions are good. Guest posting, commenting and document sharing sites are the best methods to build links. I don’t know how effective it still is about Forums. It has been quite long I’m participating in forums. Are the links from forum still counted fro ranking?

  10. Arbaz Khan says:

    Nice article Srikanth,
    For link building I normally prefer going with Guest blogging and Blog commenting as they guarantee that your links will stay there for a very long time or may be forever. However forum links are also quite strong. I have some backlinks from WarriorForum and they gave great results.
    I haven’t given a shot to other methods as I am happy with Guest blogging and commenting.
    Cheers 🙂

    Hi Srikanth,
    Forums and guest blogging has helped me to gain some high quality links as well as traffic to my own blog. Blog commenting is something which I do for networking with other bloggers and not for building backlinks. Though I am happy that it adds to the link juice as well. Thanks.
