GETTING BACKLINKS FOR SEO
Backlinks for SEO | We see them everyday in our in box. “I would like to link to your site”. While many of these are legitimate requests; many are not. Therefore I suggest you choose your links carefully. Because back links are links to other 3rd party websites. For example if you had a medical website you might link to an article on an AMA website.
IS THE BACK LINK LEGITIMATE?
Back links for SEO begins with going to the requesting website to check the following details.
1. Has the website indexed by Google?
2. Is the website relevant to your business?
3. Most important, is the website a useful resource for your website visitors?
RULES FOR CREATING A BACK LINK
Back links for SEO also means only linking to web pages you find valuable to your visitors. Create thoughtful pages with links and detailed link descriptions. In other words build links and web pages for visitors not search engines.
Google changing how your website gets found in searches
CREATING YOUR OWN BACK LINKS
Proactive webmasters can seek-out and create their own back links. For example Google My Business and BING Places are two great places to start. Furthermore you can submit your website to online directories. After a period of time these links help your website to build authority, which in-turns builds ranking.
WHAT IS A BACK LINK?
A back link is the mention of and linking of your website on another 3rd party website. For example, a free or paid-for business listing on Yelp is a back link. Here is a quick reference for good places to create strong back links.
WHY ARE BACK LINKS SO IMPORTANT
I like to compare a back link being similar to the ‘votes’ collected during a political campaign. To illustrate, think of each back link as ‘vote’ for your website. And as Google crawls the web it collects, counts and analyzes the links. At the same time Google is also crawling your competitors’ website. Therefore you want to grow and have more quality back links.
