Getting lot’s of backlinks from irrelevant source, never brings success. In fact, that highly causes for algorithm penalty. So, stop that harmful technique right now.

Because it’s totally high quality article and always give high quality external sources.

There have various ranking factors of Google. Getting quality external links from another trust flow link based blog, another great ranking factor. If you want to getting some quality links from another site, check their backlink profile using backlink checker tools.

If you analyze that perfectly, I challenge you will get lot’s of quality links.
