  3. Hi Umapathy,

    We all know the importance of getting quality backlinks. But it is not so easy. Like you have mentioned above that bloggers must use social networking websites for that.
    Blog commenting is the best way to get quality backlinks. Now a days writing guest pot is not an option for that. But still you can get some traffic due to that.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
