As mentioned before, blogging is one of the methods to build backlinks but what are the other methods of building quality links, let's look into them and revise a few of them.
What is a link-building strategy?
This is a basic strategy that is used to bring one webpage’s traffic to another webpage through links.
For example, I have a site that sells “chikankari clothes”, so I post a blog about “chikankari clothes and link it back to my e-commerce website, to help the user and the search engine crawl to the e-commerce website as well. All I am doing here is driving the traffic from my blog to my eCommerce website through links. Other websites often do not encourage such techniques as there are a lot of chances of being linked to spammy links which can affect the current ranking of the site.
