Please don’t try and get found for single words, such as loans, furniture, plumber etc, what you have to think about is what people may type into a search engine, for example, say you are an accountant and you are based in Leeds, you would be optimizing your website initially for “leeds accountants”, or “accountants in Leeds”, with these “long tail keywords” you are more likely to get on the first page of Google, imaging trying to get high listings for the single word “accountants”, also, people often prefer to do business locally, and if they can easily find you locally, then that’s got to be a result.

When you sign up to a high authority website to place your link, some website’s only accept comments, others website’s will let you upload some content with your backlinks. Here are a few of the website’s we use; harvard.edu, berkeley.edu, amazon, sony, xerox, ted, symantec, dell to name a few, get yourself signed up and add your backlinks.
It does take some time to sign up to these website’s and add your links or content but it’s well worth the effort in the end, do make sure you are adding slightly different content to each website.
Do try and get backlinks from website’s or blogs that are related to your own niche, stick to website’s that have a high domain authority and with the all important dofollow link type.
However, any backlinks that are of high authority can only be a benefit to your own website, even if they are not in your niche.
