Incoming links to a web site are vital to SEO. The more incoming links the better because each incoming link is like a vote for your site. The more votes, the more Google will like you and give you better rankings in organic results.

So what can you do to get quick and high quality links to your web site? Try Content Sharing sites and Social Bookmarking sites.
First create an article that includes keywords that you want to rank well for. This article should be informational rather than an advertorial for your business and at least 250 words. Create hyperlinks back to your web site within the content. Then create a few different versions of this same article by moving around paragraphs, sentences, changing the headlines etc. The purpose of this is to avoid duplicate content issues. Search engines won’t index content that they deem to be duplicate content.
Second, submit the articles to content sharing sites such as ezinearticles.com, goarticles.com etc. Then once you have create a login on the varous sites, posted your article and a link has been created on the content sharing site, submit the links to social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, Digg and hundred of others.
