Creating back links is the most efficient thing you can do for getting websites positioned in the search engines. There are many different backlinking-strategies, some of them difficult and expensive, others very easy and straightforward. This article is about one simple and free method of creating back-links which is often overlooked, but can generate great results when it comes to search engine optimization.

The two most popular and well-known free blog providers are WordPress.com and Blogger. Blogger allows you to monetize your sites by utilizing AdSense or placing affiliate links. With WordPress.com blogs, it’s a different story: The WordPress TOS doesn’t allow any kind of monetization on the free sites. Still, both of these blogging platforms can be useful SEO resources. Simply sign up and build a free blog on each of the sites and don’t even worry about monetizing the free blogs themselves. Instead, write some posts and include backlinks to your main money site. In other words: Use the free blogs to create some backlinks and monetize your main site.

This can be a simple and effective tactic and you can expand it beyond WordPress.com and Blogger. These two are not the only free blog sites available. Not by a far cry. There’s also tumblr, Blog.com, wetpaint, Vox, Livejournal, Doodlekit, Bravejournal and many more. Simply search for “create a free blog” on Google and you’ll likely find a dozen more sites like this.. You can add content and links back to your main site on each of them, creating your own little link-network.

In case you’re worried about how many posts you’ll have to write to build these links, just remember: You can use the same content that you’re submitting to article directories and post it to the free blogs. Particularly if you’re making use of spun articles, this will be no problem at all, since all the content will be unique.

Finally, let me also mention that there are systems like Web 2 Mayhem that can actually automate the posting of content to lots of free blogs for you. This means: Easy, free and effective link-building. Try this simple link-building strategy and get yourself that top-spot in the search engines!
