One of the best ways to boost website traffic is with backlinks. Here are 15 legitimate ways to build backlinks to your store. These strategies work, but they take time, patience, and perseverance.

  1. Create Content That Is Needed 

If the content is interesting, remarkable, and sustainable, readers will judge it as worthy of their time. When they do, the content will be shared and linked back to the original site. 

2. Create Link Bait Content

Statistics and studies are content that is shared frequently. Find studies that people will find interesting and link to them. 

3. Ask Your Supplier for a Link

Ask suppliers or manufacturers of products that you sell to list you on their site and give you a link back. 

4. Interview People in the Field and Post the Content 

The person interviewed will be pleased and happy about the publicity. They will very likely share the interview on their site and on social media.

5. Reach Out to the Media

Promote your store yourself. Ask magazines in your niche to help promote your blog or your business.

6. Write Guest Posts
Write a blog post and ask for it to be published on someone else’s blog. You can include a link back to your website and other relevant contextual links.

7. Use Social Media

You can use social media to help build links. The posts are seen and shared, and sometimes they go viral. 

8. Write Product Reviews

Publish reviews of the products you sell in your store. This will get the product featured to a relevant audience and gain a backlink too.

9. Make a Statement and Be Quoted

Every company has content creators, product spokespeople, or a social media team.  Look to the influencers and get their attention. If you are active online and make content that is quotable, it might get noticed by an influencer.

10. Be A Resource

Websites have resource pages where they list partners and other sites. Ask to be included. This is an easy way to get a backlink from someone willing to give them out. 

11. Request a Link

Blogs are looking for content and posting interesting lists and links to relevant resources. Reach out and let the blog know your site would like to be added. 

12. Create More Webpages

The more webpages on a site, the easier it is to get backlinks to it. Think about landing pages, blog pages, and product pages. The more content there is, the more links can be added.

13. Add Internal Links

You don’t just have to rely on backlinks. Although links from one page to another are not offsite links, they still have relevance and will keep your traffic flowing.

14. Build the Best Website

Be sure that you have a remarkable product, a stunning website, and content that has something to say. If people want to find your site, share your site and be a part of it, the links will come. 

15. Learn as Much as You Can

Learn everything you can about search engine marketing, backlinks, and how to build a better online store. The more you know, the more you can build up your site.

"A bit about " Carlos Alvarez " in his own words: "Alvarez sums up his mission to help online sellers with a quote he heard early on in his career. “New sellers constantly compare their Chapter 1 to another seller’s Chapter 20. They see what other veteran sellers are doing and they judge their success and failures by this benchmark.” His goal is to show sellers a realistic path to success, and how they can enjoy every chapter of their own, unique journey."
