Why Backlinks are Important
A Major Ranking Factor
Google and other search engines (like Microsoft’s Bing) analyze the quantity and quality of the websites that are linking to content on your website. These incoming links to your site are a significant factor in determining where your website appears on the search engine results page.
When appropriately done, links are kind of like votes for your website. The more quality votes that your website receives, the better your chances are to rank well in the search engine results.
The Process of Link Building
The actual process of requesting links from other website owners can be tedious and can’t be effectively automated. For the best chances of success, it requires customized outreach – usually by email – to a website owner.
Even then, it is challenging to convince another website owner that your site is valuable enough for them to take the time to set up a link to your site. They, like you, are targeted with tons of unsolicited, irrelevant spam emails, and form requests. Even with targeted, relevant outreach, it can sometimes take hundreds of requests to website owners to get a link or two.
Not All Links are Created Equal
4) Follow the Rules
Spammy Websites & PBNs
If you get links from spammy websites or links from Private Blog Networks (PBNs), it can damage your rankings and may even lead to a penalty.
Paying for Links
Using black hat tactics that go against Google guidelines can result in penalties that can prevent your site from showing up in search results. We don’t employ any tactics that run afoul of Google’s recommendations.
Getting Results from Backlink Building
Link Building Packages
Google’s guidelines concerning SEO follow a philosophy of “build it (high-quality content), and they (customers) will come”. Not true. You need to build great content and then effectively promote this high-quality content with effective outreach.
