Backlinks are simply a text link from another website to your website. Backlinks is how your rank on major search engines is determined.
Search engines figure if you have a lot of links coming from other websites to your website then your website must be more relevant. The more relevant a search engine thinks your site is… the better ranking you get.
There are some key things to keep in mind when creating your backlinks and these are what I use.
You want to make sure that you are creating a quality link – what is a quality link. A quality link comes from a site that has similiar subject matter, has been around for awhile and has a page ranking already.
Another thing that Google watches for with the backlinks is the popularity of your site – the freshness – that is why it’s important to keep new blog post out there.
What I do, as stated in earlier post – writing is really not my cup of tea – but when the moods hits – I will write multiple posts and then I schedule them to post every other day.
Also to help me, I jot down notes of things that I run across that would be good blog post so when I am in that wriiting mood – they just flow – believe me this works.
Don’t forget an important reason for backlinks is getting visitors to your site. If you have left a nice comment, people do click on your link to see what else you have to say.
I barely skimmed the surface here on backlinking but do like I do and make Google Search your best friend. Another tip that I have found when doing my keyword research – is to find blogs in the Google Search and add comments to those blogs – you get the idea – just takes action everyone.
