1) Publish an infographic, or a picture that represents data and is fun, interesting and clever – those are widely shared and great linkbait
2) Provide content in other languages. If you can write the only useful help article on a topic in Spanish, you’ll likely get a good amount of links. This is easier than it sounds as many topics are not covered in foreign languages and you can just use a translation tool + a little touch up by a native speaker.
3) Find related sites via Google or other search engine. Contact them and see if they might be willing to link to your site. In doing so, be nice, be friendly, and explain the benefit of doing so to their audience.
4) Provide top quality. Make your content well written and as flawless as possible. Use the best writing you can.
5) Guest post on related blogs in your niche. This is a great link building tactic and also can generate good publicity and potential audience, which often is more important than the links.
6) I don’t recommend use of websites like EzineArticles because they will publish anything and they aren’t so good at passing link juice.
I don’t think there is serious value in the use of article syndication services, while acknowledging that “black hat” SEOs might. This is because a service that posts the same article on 100+ sites can trigger a duplicate content filter
7) Create a list of things. “Top 10 Websites of 2010” or “The 25 Hottest Celebrities” – these types of articles are very easily shared.
