After the latest google visible penguin 2.1 update, it has come to light that what google really needs from bloggers is quality backlinks, which in another word can be called “authority backlinks”

Before proceeding, I really want to make you understand what an “authority” and “quality” backlinks.

Okay, I know am not talking to an audience of newbies, but to make things more simple for all new bloggers and aspiring ones, I want to go this far to help them.

According to Oxford Dictionary, Authority can be defined as: the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.

What about Quality?
the standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something.

And Backlinks?
Backlink is simply getting a link pointing to your domain/website or blog from a different domain.

Now that I have explained what authority/quality and backlink is, here are the best five social networking websites backlinks that google LOVE!

I wrote a blog post here on comluv and to my ultimate pleasure, people found it useful, in case you missed it. Here is a direct link to read about It. Index Your Blog/Blogposts Within 25 Seconds in Google!

5 Social Network Website Backlinks That Google Loves:

1. Plus.google.com
2. Facebook.com
3. Twitter.com
4. StumbleUpon
5. Linkedin


I would be explaining in simple terms how to get backlinks that matters from these social network websites.
Most people always thought that they’re building backlinks from these authority websites, but what they don’t know, is that they’re actually spamming in the most “marked as spam” way, which might get their account suspended or disabled.

When building backlinks from authority websites, make it look more like you’re human, and you’re trying to enrich the lives of their (social network) users, which could be achieved by writing more than 100 words + and add a link to read more about it. That would certainly make it look wonderful.

According to latest facebook update, the more your words followed by your link, the more you will have views and reached people you’re targeting.


I have a short story to share about Google+ community, when it came out, I was like, since google owns this community, hundreds of their bots must be waiting to rank any website that is shared here, and I guess you know what I did?

Well, I start a massive spamming campaign, sharing just less than 10 words with my links, in communities, business pages, and in comments.

Well, this got my account suspended and it’s my google account that is showing my author profile in google search. This also got my profile picture removed from search, but thank God my gmail and adsense account were not marked as spam


You can learn from my mistake and know how to build backlinks from these authority websites. Getting a quality backlink from these website will surely boost your rankings.

The BEST way on how to get a do-follow link from google+ is from a page description. You can go to your “about” and edit it. Then ensure that you write about yourself and link to your blog from the description, that would give you a do-follow link from google+ community.


You can also get quality link from facebook through their description box too. I would advice you to create or if you have a page already, just go edit it and add your website link in the SHORT and LONG description box.
Make sure that you start the link with “http”


I know you already have a twitter account, but if not, just create an account and on your profile, you should just create a short description about yourself and link back to your website.

You can also get an authority website link from your profile in twitter.


It’s also a social network where you can get hundreds of thousands of Visitors if your blog post get stumbled many times by other stumblers, then consider yourself lucky, and just like Digg, you will get lots of traffics and make more money off anything profitable on your website.
But the truth here is that you must share something controversy, something never seen before. something exposing.
If you have a page with lots of likes, or a twitter account with lots of followers, these can really go a long way in helping you get your blog post to the top and will help get your blog some authority website links.


Linkedin is a community that connects business owners together, and get you to know each other. The truth here is that getting quality backlink from Linkedin is through the profile.

These are just five “social networks” to get authority backlinks from, but here is a must read for all bloggers who want to build authority backlinks and rank their website/niche blog in google using this helpful and free authority links.

Ten Authority Websites to Boost Your Niche Website Ranking to the Top

Since am not talking about getting traffic here, I would leave the traffic for another day.
Please, you can also get your blog posts more authority links by sharing them in Linkedin.
Make sure that you don’t spam linkedin, or your can account might get banned.

In Digg, you don’t need to create an account, you can just sign up using your twitter or facbook account.

But there’s a page to submit blog posts, and if you have friends in digg who can vote your post and it reached the top front page, then consider yourself a god for that duration, because your earnings and traffic would triple, and if your host is not strong, then sorry, because the traffic will surely crumble your account. But in Digg, you can only submit a post url, not your homepage url.

You can submit your blog posts by clicking Here

What do you think about this? Have you got any links from these websites and if yes, did you noticed any improvement in your rankings?
Please I would love to hear your experience and your thoughts regarding this.


  1. You are right Isaiah Joseph.

  4. Hey,
    The 5 social networks you mentioned here are great and indeed can drive traffic to any blog. but adding dig as a bonus,… Dig don’t perform as they use to.
    I’d also recommend reddit because they are great and can drive traffic to any blog faster.

      About building backlinks, i think this social networks are the top most respected ways to building authority website links and also increasing domain authority, but one thing is that they all give us “no-follow”, but it does not matter that much.

  6. Yes , social media plays vital role for every business because they are the effective, easiest and cheapest way to promote website through.

  12. Thanks for reminding this wonderful fact friend. Although most of us know that social networking websites are a great way of creating quality backlinks but despite this we don’t make much use of them.

  13. Social networks usually are believed to not give do follow links, right?
    Aathira recently posted…A good mobile test methodologyMy Profile

  14. Google+ is the best Social networking site where we get a do follow link. But how..? If you put your site link in the sharing link box and sharing with your friends; you will take a advantage of that.
    Google+ is one kind of Micro blogging site also.. Reddit is also one Kind of best way to get a dofollow links.
    Nikhil Bille recently posted…Meta Description To Blogger Blog In Search Engines InstantlyMy Profile

  15. Social networking sites are a great way to get more people coming to your site. You still need to create quality content though to keep those people coming back.

  16. Terence Chang says:

    Personally, I think StumbleUpOn is losing their social influence. It does creates the backlinks, but it’s sending high bounce rate traffic. So it’s not helping you gain better conversion rate.

    You should use social network wisely. It may generate negative impact to your website revenue.

  17. These make a good start. What’s even better is that you can often interlink all of these social profiles, in turn giving THEIR seo a backlink boost. G+ has a section for link on a page’s profile, and Youtube will carry a social icon for every social site you link to.

    • Hello Alice D, and yes, you really know your gun, all this social networks have bloggers in mind, so they provide us a platform we have to input our website URL, and about youtube, i don’t really understand or fathom if the link on our profile is a no-follow or do-follow, but after many observations, it’s a nofollow.

      But the truth is this, these links help increase our DOMAIN authority and boast our SEO.
      omoscowonder recently posted…How to Increase Blog TrafficMy Profile

  18. i has use G+, FB, and Stubmbleupon.. believe me these 3 sites, is really usefull to insert or add ur keyword on about page. G+ is the most i choose to place my dofollow backlinks then fb to attract the visitors to want come to my blog :)

  19. i’m still not a fan of Google+ I just don’t the the layout and how it looks – i’m sure it will grow on me over time, for now Twitter and Facebook are my favorites.
    Mark recently posted…What is the Best Chef Knife?My Profile

  20. Yes social media links are very important but these links are always nofollow but google still value it.
    I think the links from google plus adds great value to your posts and when you gets more 1+ on your posts, google will rank your posts better.
    I am using all of them but For me stumbleupon is working best for traffic but for ranking i think my posts rank well from google plus.
    Hamza recently posted…How to start a blogMy Profile

  21. You didn’t include Pintrest, that social network is great for juice and real traffic. It’s the social network shown to priced the most revenue as well

  22. First of all its a good post. When we talk about 5 top sites Such as
    1. Plus.google.com
    2. Facebook.com
    3. Twitter.com
    4. StumbleUpon
    5. Linkedin
    Out of these 5 – G+ has more say in comparison to others. FB is a good way to attract people and build links quickly but again one has to be street smart while doing so. One need to make sure that post must have an image “Which should be Unique” and post and a link with Hast Tag.
    Twitter is informative but as per my knowledge it doesnt provide link juice
    Stumbleupon you can create community but I am afraid you won’t get quality traffic.
    Linkedin is a great way to enhance your brand visibility on Corporate World.
    Last but not the least point that you mentioned in the end really suffice all the logic.

    Thanks for your post.. Much Appreciated. :-)

  23. Nice sharing about 5 social network to get authority backlink. i look using all of them only working best for traffic but not for ranking. Only google plus can rank very well. Please correct me if i’m wrong.

  24. I would also add YouTube to the list. It’s an easy way to get great quality links.

  26. Google allows back links on many of a websites. But you know it should not only be back-links that you have to comment. it should be from the heart. And by heart i say that great writing. You have got skills man.

  27. You have a good point about adding 100+ words followed by your link. I think that is true. Also added my website link in the short and long descriptions on my Facebook page. Good stuff!

    • Hello Shoutok, i really love this wonderful input, most people argued that Facebook and Google+ is their best source, but i guess we all have our means/ways on how to optimize these social networks and get the best out of them!

      Nice to hear that StumbleUpon & Digg are your best means of getting higher traffic.
      omoscowonder recently posted…How to Increase Blog TrafficMy Profile

  33. Superb tips. But new Google algorithm sets focus on much more than backlinks. Now website performance, coding, navigation, linking, along with unique relevant content with social media sharing specially Google plus will all be considered for top rankings by the new Google algorithm. Anyway … thanks for nice share

  34. Tom Crawford says:

    It is really important to be adding to the information presented on the website. This is a much more sensible long term strategy as it show readers that you have knowledge of the subject, and are someone to pay attention to.

    The short term tactic of generating as many backlinks as possible does not make good business sense. I always aim to provide additional value.

  35. Backlinks really helps to increase a blog standardization and also it enhances the blog. According to me Facebook and Stumble upon are the two best social network to get authority backlinks. these are more valuables than others. Nice article.

  36. Mahendra Kumar says:

    Stumble upon is such a massive hit that sometimes if your submission goes viral, you will get thousands of visitors every hour. I had got around ten to twelve thousand visitors per day from stumble upon for two or three of my posts last year. Cheers.

  37. I have been using social networks for backlinks and traffic from the beginning. Your post gives new information that are useful to me. Thanks.

  40. SEO has always been an amazing part of the online marketing industry, and social networks like G+, FB or Twitter originated, having less or more influence on SEO. Google + definitely has or will have a big influence on SEO. That’s easy to understand because G+ comes from Google and Google for example is interested in generating independant social signals to enrich its search engine results. But Google also evalutes public data from Twiiter or FB, of Linkedln.. if they can use it these information to increase the quality of its search engine result pages.

    Thanks for sharing your valuable knowledge with us. Today there are many social networks which can give you backlink but that link would be nofollow. Now there are many social networks giving only nofollow backlinks except Google plus. Google plus is currently giving dofollow backlink. There was a time when pinterest also gave dofollow link by verifying website but now after verifying your website, you will only get nofollow backlink. Happy blogging :)

    I will finally get off my posterior and create my official blog.

    By the way, there used to be an old margarine commercial that said…. ‘it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”. I think we can add Google to that list now!
