On the 12th day of Xmas…
Links are the backbone of any good search engine marketing strategy and below are 12 ways you can get quality inward one way links to your website:
Above is only a few ways to develop you inward links but you can get as creative as you need to.
Do number of inward links for a website posted on the same blog post/comments count as only one inward link? Or can one have something like 50 links to a website on the blog-post?
I've always seen Wikipedia as a lost cause for SEO link building. The link is nofollow and the watchdogs there are always marking anything even remotely commercial as SPAM. What a joke though, cause I've seen plenty of websites running adsense all over their pages and they still get listed. Just cause a commercial site is selling something doesn't mean they aren't relevant. Ah, well…rant done.
May I compliment you on a very useful list for back link building.
I personally find Yahoo Answers, Google Groups and Squidoo very good when looking for immediate traffic response and indexing pages.
Have you used Craigslist to post ads? I get top Google positions for less competitive long tail keyword phrases (with good search traffic) same day or within a couple of days. What I do to achieve these results is to obviously put the keyword phrase in the title (which converts to a h2 in the code). Then, the first line of the body copy which includes the keyword phrase I make an h1 plus anchor text link pointing back to relevant website page. Fill rest of ad with around 100 words of relevant text to get good code to text ratio and submit.
You do have to be careful with posting on Craigslist with an ordinary modem as it picks up your IP address and can boot you off if it believes you are posting too often. Best way over this (so I’ve been told) is to post using Wireless connection which changes the IP address on each post – and of course use different email addresses.
Anyway, I hope my comment meets your approval.

A big, big thanks for this.
I have done/used some of these steps in the past and present, but some of them are obvious but never really thought about them in any depth, and now i think i will.
My first step i think is to make a game, as games seem to bring in a good bit of traffic, and allowing the game to be hosted on other websites may increase my inbound links.
The others i may try is Video or maybe a Podcast, as lets say it this way, i have the looks for radio, or is that voice for radio…
