SEO Backlink Building

Optimizing Your Site for Top Search Engine Results – Building Backlinks

What are backlinks and why do they help search engine rankings?

Popular search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL Search, Ask.com, Open Directory, Teoma, DuckDuckGo, Alta Vista, and othersBacklinks are simply links that occur on other websites that link back to your website. Essentially, that’s the reverse of adding a link on your website to someone else’s website. Backlinks are primarily important for Google ranking because of how Google works.

Google was actually founded largely on the principle that links from other sites constitute a “vote” for the website that’s being linked to. So the more links to your site, and the more important those sites are, the higher your site is “rated” by Google. It’s actually called the site’s “PageRank” (from 0 to 10), and there is a PageRank for your entire site as well as a separate PageRank for each page in your site. The important thing to remember is that the “PageRank” of your website is critical because it has a lot to do with how high up on the Google search results your site will appear.

So what does this all mean? It means that if you have a lot of other websites linking back to you, including some “important” sites, you will rank higher in Search Engine results, and will therefor have a better chance of coming up on the first page of Google! And after all, isn’t that what SEO is all about?

How do I get backlinks to my site?

In the long term, generally over a few years’ time, your site will gradually accumulate links from other websites naturally, especially if your site content is considered valuable or important to other website owners. However, every new website begins life with no backlinks and a Google PageRank of 0. That hurts your chances for good positioning on Google, so the most effective way to counteract that is to find ways of getting backlinks added to other websites, including directories, discussion forums, blogs, social networking sites, and others. We can help with that. Following are examples of typical 6-month backlink building campaigns we offer.

We conduct monthly backlink building campaigns for our clients, and we invariably see a big difference in improving search engine results as a result of these campaigns. The process is cumulitive, so results progress over a period of months. All of our backlink campaigns create permanent one-way backlinks from U.S. websites only, all are “thematic”, related to your line of business, and we do not use “link farm” websites, which are considered low quality sites by Google and can result in penalties.

We also provide you with a monthly report showing all the links added and the improvement in search engine rankings from month to month for specific keywords that we target. We recommend keywords to target, but the final decision is yours.

We can tell you important information about your website, such as:

  • How high up does your site come up in Google for your major keyword phrases?
  • What is your website PageRank?
  • How many websites link to your site, and how many total backlinks to you have?
  • How does your website compare to your major competitors?
