Fortunately, if you are a beginner blogger who wants to build backlinks, you do not have to use all those resources. For the initial stage, based on my experience of bringing more than two dozen English niche blogs to page 1 of Google, you should focus on the following 8 sources of backlinks.
1. Social Bookmarking Sites
Social site bookmarking ( social bookmarking sites ) is a site that people use to store, organize, and manage a web page or blog they like.
Getting backlinks from this site is very easy: you register, verify your registration, log in to the site, and publish your front page URL and or blog post. The backlinks that you will get can be dofollow or nofollow, depending on the social bookmarking site requirements.
Here are the social bookmarking sites that you can try.
2. Social Media
Social media is a site that allows users to create and share content or participate in social networks. Backlinks from this site are believed to be of good quality because they are counted as a social signal by Google and other search engines.

Blog comments are not effective. Maybe you’ve heard the statement. I also initially considered it that way. However, after I try, it turns out to blog comments can bring my blog to page 1 Google. In fact, comment blogs are one of the backlink sources I use at the beginning of my backlink strategy.
I do my own blog comments on blogs in Indonesian language that the comments do not require approval ( auto approve ) and extensions vary among others. Go.id, .sch.id, .com, .net, .org, .co.id, and .info.
When you find an auto approve blog, comment by entering your keywords. If you do not want to enter keywords, you can enter your name, your pseudonym, your blog name, or your blog’s domain name.
4. Video Sites
Online video in the last decade is growing rapidly. Of course, video sharing sites can be used also to plant backlinks for your blog, which is in the description section of the uploaded video.
