If you own a blog or website, then you’ll need to do what other bloggers are doing for search engines ranking. In this piece, I’ll be sharing with you 10 best sources to get high PageRank dofollow backlinks for free.
In case you don’t know, Google has over 200 ranking factors according to Brian Dean of backlinko (backlinks is among the strong ranking factors). Even the experienced SEO experts can’t even memorize all of them. This goes to show that Google doesn’t mess around. So, you shouldn’t too.
Achieving some of these ranking factors can give you hard-hitting nightmares especially backlinks.
You see, good backlinks are difficult to acquire. If you get them easy, there is a caveat: they are probably not on any high authority domain, often a private blog network.
You are right in some way if you believe acquiring backlinks is difficult, it wouldn’t count as a strong ranking factor if it is easy.

The Problem of Many Bloggers
The problem they have is organic traffic. They want organic traffic. Without traffic, there are no sales. And without sales, there is no business. It’s dead simple.
But how do you drive organic traffic if you don’t know how to? That is why you are reading this content right now. There are requirements you must meet if you want to see organic traffic pumping in.
You’ve got to do what every experienced bloggers and internet marketers are doing to command traffic.
One of them is PUBLISHING QUALITY CONTENTS,
And then LINK BUILDING.
These two requirements are very important. If you don’t know them, you are not an experienced marketer or a blogger.
Why Backlinks Matter?
Backlinks are the talked about SEO weapon by every blog owners and internet marketers.
It really is a big SEO weapon. Your blog, without backlink, is weak.
For most search engines, a page’s position in search results is influenced by the number of quality and relevant backlinks pointing to that page.
Simply put, if you want to show yourself as an authority in your niche and get more traffic, you need more quality and relevant backlinks.
What is High Quality Backlink?
The quality of a backlink is just as important as the backlink itself. The quality of your backlinks is more important than the total number of backlinks your page has. Remember, quality is better than quantity.
For example, one quality backlink from a high PageRank relevant domain is better than 100 backlinks from a low PageRank irrelevant domain.
Note: Google has its own ways of deciding the quality of backlinks. For example, a backlink from CNN or BBC to a blog in personal finance niche is considered a quality one.
Is CNN or BBC related to personal finance niche? No
Is CNN or BBC a high authority and trusted site? Yes
Why is a backlink from these sites considered quality one? Because they are a high authority and trusted sites.
A former member of Matt Cutts’ search quality team was recently quoted as saying:
“…getting a link from a high PR page used to always be valuable, today it’s more the relevance of the site’s theme in regards to yours, relevance is the new PR.”
Why Getting Quality Backlinks is Difficult
Backlinks are one of those things you need if you want to perform well in the search engines. Apart from great contents, you need relevant backlinks from quality (high authority) sites. And guess what? It is not that easy. Getting backlinks is one of the difficult things in SEO.
And the problems?
Reaching out to Influencers is Difficult
The current ‘state of the art’ in link building is that you need to publish great contents on your blog If you want to get backlinks. I mean the type of contents anybody wants to link to without being told. The content must have the following qualities:
- It must be a quality one
- It must be helpful to the reader
- It must be a skyscraper content. 3000 words and above brimming with informational images. You know what that means.
But even when your content meets the above requirements, there is a problem. Sorry, there are problems.
Producing skyscraper contents is not that easy. It requires a lot of work.
You need influencers in your industry to link to your content or at least share it. And this boils down to another problem, It is not guaranteed. Influencers are busy too, which means they may not reply your emails. They get tons of emails every day. So, there is a high chance your email(s) will not be read.
Below are some of the outreach emails I sent to influencers to let them know I have linked to one of their contents. Till now, I didn’t receive any reply to any of the emails.
One to MindTools.com
One to ShoutMeLoud.com
And one to AmyLynnAndrews.com
These emails were sent in April 2018.
Guest Posting is Becoming Expensive day by day
Till now, guest posting remains one of the effective ways to quickly gain high PageRank dofollow backlinks. Before, you can easily pitch a webmaster with your guest post request, get a response (positive one I hope), and bam, your guest post is accepted and published.
However, many webmasters now charge for a guest post. Which means if you don’t have a decent amount to invest in guest posting, then forget it.
What’s the solution?
In three words, do it yourself. If you want something to happen, you have to make that thing happen. Just do it yourself and you will be proud of yourself.
Do this: create your own backlinks. It is not impossible. It is just quite time consuming.
I know you are thinking about “how can I create backlinks since I don’t have other sites of my own I can link from and I don’t want to involve in grey hat (PBNs) SEO”?
Even though many SEO experts claim grey hat SEO still works, I wouldn’t risk it for anything. It’s just not worth venturing into. The consequence is too serious.
How To Get High PR Dofollow Backlinks
Want more organic traffic to your blog? Then you are hungry for quality backlinks.
