The best way for acquiring a back link is to ask the other webmasters through adding a line below each blog post that should be persuasive enough to convince them linking back to the original source instead of replicating the entire content and stealing the credits away from the original author.

Internal linking between various blog posts is now even more important. The Google is now focusing more on valuable content and eliminating the previously accepted methods to earn high rankings in search results.
Social Media Marketing
