101 Sources of Quality Backlinks from High DA Sites (Free)

In this article I want to share 101 sources of quality backlinks. Not only quality, the site also has high Domain Authority and Page Rank (Page Rank), and you can get everything for free.

If you are a person who has been in the world of websites and blogs for a long time, of course backlinks are not foreign. But for those of you who are just starting out, backlinks are still a little confusing.

Google until now, still uses backlinks as a parameter to place a website on the first page.

Backlinks are an open secret that competitors don't want to know about high pagerank holders in the SERPs. Therefore, when you are browsing looking for information on how to get rank one.

The answer is definite: "low competition keywords, keyword optimization in H1-H2 and so on."

In fact, if you use backlink checker tools like Ahrefs or Ubersuggest. High pagerank backlinks must have thousands, even tens of thousands of backlinks. If it is likened to a support, of course a website that gets more backlinks is definitely more recommended.

For more details about backlinks, please read: Understanding backlinks in detail.

For those of you who have just registered a domain, of course the number of backlinks may still be zero. Because backlinks for newborn domains must not exist yet. Therefore you need to add it step by step.

You don't need to finish it overnight, the important thing is to be diligent and consistent, because it will only show results after 2-3 months.

Choosing backlinks, of course, can not be arbitrary!

What a website needs to get a good effect, of course, must be from a site that has a high DA and PA as well.

  1. At first I thought that backlinks were something that wasn't really important,,, but I think blog optimization will be lacking if it's just on page optimization,,, in the future maybe I will try off page optimization, especially for backlink problems,,, even though the portion may be 30% for backlinks, 70% for content, what do you think? Most or less?

    • Backlinks still have the largest portion to determine Ranking. I can't fix that 30% is more or less.
      The answer is depending on the level of competition on page one itself. But if the goal is to start link building, the portion of 30% and 70% is more than enough.

      Here is an example of my blog optimized with PBN Services.
