Once you’ve launched your brand new website (Congrats! That’s a huge effort and milestone achieved already!), the next challenge is to figure out how to drive traffic to your site.
One of the main ways to drive traffic to your site is from people finding your content on Google. You ideally want to be listed in the top three positions on the first page of the Google SERPs (search engine results page), and extra bonus points if you can grab the Google snippet too.

How to Easily Get 600+ Free Backlinks
But when you’re first getting started and may have just freshly launched your brand spanking new website (which can feel like a herculean effort to get there in itself), you just want to get some quick and easy wins.
H-Supertools is a site I came across recently and it has many free SEO and digital marketing available including a Free Backlinks List.
The Backlinks List Explorer is a collection of free easy-to-win backlink opportunities. it will help you kickstart your SEO and improve your Rankings on Search Engines…
The Backlinks List Explorer features links from diverse locations, niche markets and also allows users to get links for their own sites. This means that you can get targeted backlinks for your site without spending too much time researching the internet.
This list of free easy-to-win backlink opportunities is updated regularly so bookmark this page or follow the Backlinks List Explorer to keep up with the latest changes.
You can also access a set of other useful tools such as a Free AI Writer, Outline Generator, Keyword Research Tool, SEO Analyzer, Free Backlinks Checker and more.
Assuming you’ve signed up, you can now access the Free Backlinks List. The default order of the list is alphabetical with 10 results showing per page. The columns are: Website name, the TLD eg .com, the Link Type ie Dofollow or Nofollow, the DR, and the URL link to the website.
The site says they’ll also add tutorials to each link to show you how to get a back from each website. So far, just two tutorials have been added. You can easily go to the link you’re interested in and work it out yourself quite easily anyway.
I sorted the list by DR (Domain Ranking) in descending order. Instagram, Twitter and YouTube are at the top of the list with DR of 99, 99 and 98 respectively.
Below is a screenshot of the second page of results which lists Medium.com as a DR 94 site with a Nofollow link type.
My strategy to get backlinks would be to first click on each site’s URL starting with sites that have the highest DR with the Dofollow (DF) link type. I’d then see if it’s a site that suits my niche and a site I’d want to set up a link on. Then if I do, I’d follow their instructions on how to set up a backlink to my site.
Sites listed include:
- Blogger.com DR94 (DF)
- Behance.net DR93 (NF)
- Weebly.com DR93 (DF)
- WordPress.com DR93 (DF)
- Goodreads.com DR92 (NF)
- SlideShare.net DR92 (DF)
- Quora DR91 (NF)
- Webflow.io DR90 (DF)
- Carrd.co DR86 (DF)
I noticed a few of the sites listed prompted a message from the Nortons app installed on my laptop warning that I was about to visit a dangerous site. So I probably wouldn’t click on those unless I knew the site was safe from other sources.
Hopefully, these resources can help kickstart your link-building strategy and help you increase your site’s domain ranking over time.
This, combined with quality content and other factors will hopefully help you towards ranking some of your content on the first page of Google’s search results over time.
