I used to do SEO a few years back but of course things have changed since then.
I am launching a brand new site (not aged domain) and am wondering what is the best link building strategy to use?
I used to use a variety of:
- article links,
- web 2.0 link wheels,
- forum signature links,
- contextual profile links,
- PDF links
- blog comments (scrapebox) for tier 2 links
However, I know this approach is no good for 2017, so wondering where to start in terms of what kind of backlink sources I should be using?
I know a lot of people use PBNs but I don't want to go down that route. What types of backlinks are effective for 2017?
I am thinking:
- niche relevant
- high authority sites
But this leaves me with only guest posting and PBNs as potential link sources? Anything else?
What would you guys recommend?
