How To Get More Backlinks

What is Guest Post Blogging and how do you get high quality backlinks?
For those unfamiliar with this technique of link building, guest post blogging is a method where you write a high quality article based upon the topic for which you want to create a backlink. Your article must be very high quality and should contain a backlink for the keyword or keyphrase of your choosing.
The article is then posted on a third party blog website that is in your same target and one that accepts guest posts.
The blog gets the benefit of having unique high quality and fresh content added to it and you as the author get the benefit of a rich contextual backlink from a blog that is "related" to you – this is probably the highest quality backlink you can get (providing the blog page ranks well).
Note: In some instances you may not be able to insert a keyword based backlink, as per the terms of the guest blog, but you will still be able to include a raw url link of your domain - but which still has high value.
