I have recently noticed that the traffic on my blog from google is increasing slowly day by day after I got few high PR backlinks and this increasing traffic from search engines could be one of the reason for the recent adsense approval on my new blog in spite of being an indian publisher. Anyways lets get back to the point and let me tell you how I got the high PR backlinks for free without wasting your precious time.
Which High PR Backlinks I Got and How ?
1) Youtube.com (PR 9)
