Belongs on webmasters. But it's argumentative, too. Best in my opinion would be to include interesting (<- subjective) content that attracts backlinks. – 0xC0000022L Apr 26 '11 at 11:58

There are lots of easy ways to find tips to help you. Just keep in mind that quantity of links doesn't really help you. Quality is what matters. The quicker and easier it is to get a link the less value it almost certainly has. So instead of trying to get as many links as you can, you should be focusing on getting quality links.

FYI, the best way to get quality links is to have great content on your website.

The way to get links is create things that your audience wants. If your website is a fan site of Lady Gaga, you need to know what her fans like, dislike. What would excite them? What are they most interested in? Then build pages that reflect that. Build relationships with other similar websites and ask them to link to your content. http://www.ericward.com/bestpractices/
