Whenever you type any word in Google, Google check two main thing. First it find out all the pages that matches with your search term. Secondly it see which page is referred more by other site. The page which is referred more, wins in search result. Referring means which other websites are linking to that page or website.
In order to get good search engine rank you have to create links pointing back to your site. This links are called backlinks. Backlinks are also know as inbound links or incoming links and they are the core of Offpage Search Engine Optimization.

How To Get Backlinks?
Below I am explaining few steps to get backlinks. Mind that backlinks and reprocial links are not same. Backlinks are one way incoming links to your site. You donâ€™t have to link back those backlink sources from your website or blog. You should also focus on creating quality backlinks, not quantity. Means one backlink from a PR8 website is far better than 10 backlinks from a PR0 website.
Article Submission: I feel this is powerful step of creating one way incoming links to your site. Always use good Anchor text while creating link and use your keyword. For example my blog main keyword is earn money online. So I will use earn money online to link to my blog instead of Click Here. Click the below link to get top list of articles directories
Directory Submission: It is a time consuming process but try to submit as much as you can. You will find a good list of directory here ==> Robin Goodâ€™s list of RSS directories

Creating WEB2.0 Properties: Create different WEB2.0 properties such as Squidoo lens, Hubpage, Blogger blogs etc to support your main blog. Use keyword in anchor link to point back to your blog. It is better if you can create all WEB2.0 properties on your sub keyword, not main keyword. once you done that you can bookmark all those WEB2.0 properties.
You can create more WEB2.0 properties such as:
