Another way to create backlinks is to mention influencers in your articles.

Have you ever read posts like, “What do the top industry experts say about X?”

People write these articles for very specific reasons: they’re interesting and informative. Also, when you mention a popular influencer, you increase your chances of getting more links.

If the article is any good, the influencer you mentioned will most likely share it. In the end, that will result in more links.
