I wanted to build more quality backlinks to the guide we've recently published. The guide focuses on IT help desk, customer service and ITSM. Can anyone here help me out?

    Can you share the guide Thaslim? That makes it easier to write a good response.

    Some ideas:
    - Ask influential people about their view on this matter and quote them in the article (builds authority and they may even share the article).
    - Engage with others that have written about it (blogs), or are talking about it (GrowthHackers, Quora, Reddit, Fora etc.)
    - Look up similar pieces from competitors and check their backlinks, try to get those (or similar links to those).

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks much Stevan. These really help especially point 2 and 3, Because the guide was already published, can't add influential people's quote now. But I think I can embed Tweets into my guide from industry thought leaders and then I mention them on Twitter. Is that works better?

      No problem Thaslim!

      Why are you unable to add quotes after publishing? I see content as something that's fluid, always flowing and developing. It's not set it in stone :)

      I see you've put a lot of effort into the guide. Adding embedded tweets work well, but the main point if to get buy-in from the influencers to stimulate them to share the article afterwards.

      Also, I personally feel there's too much visuals and too little text - I'm not sure if your message comes across. Anyway, all the best man!

        Thanks a lot, Steven for your valuable advice and feedback. It means a lot to me. I'll share this with my team and will try to add few quotes.

        BTW, if you have any other tips to promote this guide, please do share with me here.

    As for me there are a lot of methods to make your rank higher. For example, guest blogging. Why? Cause it is one of the quickest way to get quality backlinks.
    Use social media to post your content there and as a result you can get better Social Media Traffic.Reach out to forums, newspapers, and communities to spread more about you and get a backlink at the same time.
    Use also email outreach to influencers, broken links method and other methods and never waste your time with links that might cause trouble.You need to build only quality backlinks.Do article marketing on relevant websites.Also with the help of social bookmarking and social networking sites you can get a lot of quality backlinks.
    Another great way to get quality backlinks to your blog is by using press release websites.What can help also - commenting and guest blogging.
