  1. Engage on Medium: Comment on posts, answer questions and engage in conversations on Medium. If you provide helpful and valuable advice, other members may link back to your blog or website.
  2. Ask for Shares: After you’ve published an article on Medium, reach out to influencers and ask them to share it on their social media accounts. If they do, include links back to your website or blog in their posts.
  3. Use Social Media: Promote your content on social media channels like Twitter and Facebook. All posts should include links back to your website.
  4. Syndicate Content: Add your content to other content distribution networks like OutBrain and Taboola to get more exposure and backlinks.
  5. Take Advantage of Social Proof: Medium allows you to track how many times your articles were shared on social media which is social proof. Use the number of shares to promote the posts further by including them in your marketing emails and content on your own website.

  1. Join Medium Publications: Medium Publications are curated collections of articles on specific topics. Joining a publication related to your niche can help you gain more visibility and potentially get backlinks. Submit your articles to relevant publications and include links back to your website in the author bio or within the article itself.
  2. Collaborate with Other Writers: Medium allows you to collaborate and co-write articles with other writers. By working with other writers who have a larger following or influence, you can increase the chances of getting backlinks from their audience.
  3. Write Guest Posts: Reach out to other bloggers or website owners in your niche who also have a presence on Medium and offer to write a guest post for them. In your guest post, include links back to your own website. This not only helps you get backlinks but also exposes your content to a new audience.
  4. Utilize Medium's Import Tool: If you have existing blog posts on your website, you can import them into Medium using their import tool. By repurposing your content on Medium, you can attract a wider audience and potentially gain backlinks as more people discover and share your articles.
  5. Optimize Your Medium Profile: Make sure to optimize your Medium profile by including a bio, links to your website and social media accounts, and relevant keywords. This can help interested readers find your profile and navigate to your website.

Remember, getting backlinks from Medium is not just about placing links randomly but creating high-quality, valuable content that people find helpful and want to share. Focus on creating engaging articles that resonate with your target audience to increase your chances of gaining backlinks from Medium.
