In this blog post we are going to talk a little about what a backlink is so that you can gain a better understanding of how to get them.
A backlink (often referred to as an incoming link) occurs when another person puts a link to your site from theirs. Basically backlinks are all about getting traffic to your website which any webmaster will agree is a very important part of achieving success.
Fact: search engine optimisation is very important and you need to keep it in mind as you are creating your website.
While structure and keywords are important to keep in mind as you create and add to your website, the most important factor of good SEO for the rest of your website’s life is adding and maintaining backlinks.
Because search engines use backlinks to rate how worthwhile or valuable your site is, the more sites that you have linking to your site, the better you will look to the search engines. The end result is that you move up in rank.
Website Backlinks Quantity and Quality
While the quantity of the backlinks contributes to your ranking, it is also important to make sure that you maintain high backlink quality as well. Try to avoid having backlinks from sites that have nothing to do with your site. Also, it is better to have backlinks coming from other highly ranked sites (as long as they are related to yours).
If you decide to do your link-building yourself, you can manually request others to link to you, you can submit your site manually to the most reputable directories, you can submit articles that link back to your site to the many article directories, and you can participate in forums and other social media platforms so that people are constantly clicking on your link.
These are just a few of the ways that you can go about increasing the number of backlinks to your site and we will be discussing them more over the next few posts.
That’s it for this post. We have a lot to go over in the next few blog posts to come, if you want to learn how to harness the power of backlinks, make sure you check out the next few blog posts. Next we will be talking about starting your link popularity campaign and building links the right way!
