28. Create a podcast and submit it to iTunes.

29. Test products and write reviews. You can also run surveys.

30. Create an app and submit it to app directories.

Following is the simple method which is used to calculate the number of backlinks you need to rank your website.

I learned it from the webinar from Blog with Jags. I am sharing it here as it will be helpful for many.

1. Check the first page of your keyword.
2. Check the first 10 sites and their backlinks.
3. You need to note down the backlink numbers and the number of RDs (referring domains) for those 10 sites and add that number.
4. Divide that total by 8.
5. The result is the number of backlinks you need to create every month.

For example, let us say the backlinks for the keyword on the first ten sites = 4000
4000/8= 500 backlinks per month
500/4= 124 backlinks per week

Based on the niche, competition this number will vary.


There is no need for black hat tricks to get quality backlinks.

You can follow some of the ways mentioned here to get quality backlinks to your blog.
