It's good to use a variety of link building strategies. Articles, Directories, and link exchanges are all good ways to build links.

Yahoo answers is great for my niche. I can always find questions that are easy to answer and post a link to my site.

It is fun and rewarding to help people who are searching for answers and build traffic at the same time.

My site gets 1200 uvs a day thanks to a combination of good content, link building and helpful tools at SBI.

As what most people have already stated, creating backlinks to drive more traffic is never easy. There are some automated ways to do this but the best links are deemed with quality. To do that, you have to create these backlinks manually. You can post them to social networking sites, directories, blog comments, article posts, and many others.

Everyone has posted some helpful tips, most of which I can agree with. I found the best use out of doing links in guest blogs and blog comments. As long as your comments are actually related to the topic and not spammy I found that they can help generate traffic.

Currently i think Guest Blogging and Unique article postion in quality sites and Forum is good way to increase back link. Beware of New Google Over optimization while building backlinks

I wouldn't bother too much with directories etc. because search engines don't think they're valuable and people don't visit them. The #1 thing you can do, as others have mentioned, is ensure that your website delivers value. Then, create some well targeted self-created links, and contact other websites to see if they'll mention yours in a post or if you can do some sort of link exchange.

I hope this helps.

Like HCChris said, a lot of forum posts/blog comments are listed as "nofollow", meaning that in terms of SERP listings, it has zero effect. However, if it's on the right page (say, you sell photo frames and someone comments/places a link in a photography forum) you'll get more traffic because of pure interest, and the increase in traffic should ultimately help boost your ranking.

If you ask for links, be professional yet personable. Address the person by name and show that you've actually looked at their website so they know you really mean business. This will increase your odds of getting a link!

Default To increase links

There are lots of ways to increase links. But the quality links are prefer than quantity. In addition increasing links must be in co-ordinate with updating and creating new content in site

I hope everyone is aware about the Updates made by Google.

Link building/Optimization is Good. (but don't try to overly do this things)
Social Media Platform is Also Good. (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc.)

All of websites effort is Good. The thing that we must equip in doing those kind of stuffs are No Overly using, Just be yourself and Relevant and Unique Contents.

Simple way is to posting on forums,blogs etc. But when search engines calculate the relevance of a site to a keyword, they consider the number of QUALITY back links to that site. So qulaity backlinks are essential to increase links.
