Today, I am going to talk about backlinks and how important are these for getting high rank in Google and other Search Engines. However, this is not a huge topic. I believe that many have already heard about this term before. Backlinks are also treated as good way to SEO your site.
But let’s assume that there are new members coming everyday to learn something. So I will start with “What is backlink”?
What is backlink and how to get quality backlinks?
Well, Backlinks, You got the idea right! It is exactly as it sounds. A link from another site to your site/blog or we can say a link from one page (another site) to the page of your site/blog.
Having many backlinks attracts Google. Yeah right, this is the main part of Google’s ranking algorithm. They treat your site popular because other sites linked to it.
They gives you high ranking if you have a quality backlinks to your blog.
Earlier, People were buying all low quality backlinks to get high ranking in search engines and it made Google think about it. This game of back-linking continues to evolve very quickly though. Google is starting to discover their own loopholes and it was time for Google to discredit many of the large websites that have “paid” for low quality back-links in the past.
Now, Backlink is just not a link to your site. Google became smarter and its harder to get rank with low quality backlinks.
For example, One can not expect results if they link “computer laptop site” to the “dog training site”. Google knows that there is no link between laptop and dog, so it won’t be of any use to link that way…
Now quality back links which Google recognize is like getting links from the sites which share same interest.
JamesGolfSite if linked to MichaelsGolfSite will be recognized as a quality back link because both the site shares same interest.
One more thing I would like to share is that your direct domain name (www.yourdomainname.com) in any article will not be treated as back link… You need to cover your domain with Anchor text.
1. There are ways to learn affiliate marketing. Goto www.futurevisionaffiliates.com to learn more about it (it will not be treated as backlink)
2. There are ways to learn affiliate marketing and this is the good way to generate backlink…… (This will be treated as quality back link)
So, I guess we can say that paid back links are now useless and are becoming less effective. Where as hyperlinks covered under anchor text posted on an article with same interest will get good ranking.
Now the question comes, what are the ways to get quality backlinks?
Apart from above mentioned way to get quality back links, there are 2 more ways to get Backlinks which Google still likes.
1. Social Bookmarking to Get Backlinks
Social bookmarking still has value in Google’s eye. The most common back-links are social bookmarks.
