After Lynn's extensive series, I have been doing a good deal of backlink building over the last week. I have a set of 10 Squidoo Lenses that are in the "Holiday Shopping" Market that I have been building backlinks for.

I have to say that backlinking is one of my least favorite activities in my business. Something about as fun as a root canal!

These are the methods I use in building backlinks:
1. Social Media - Digg, Stumbleupon etc.
2. RSS Feed Directories
3. Article writing
4. Blog commenting

Three questions:

1. What other methods of building backlinks do you use?

2. What is your favorite method?

3. What do you feel is the most effective method?

I always learn SO much from all of you. Looking forward to the discussion!


P.S. My fave is probably blog commenting.
