Building Backlinks – Optimizing Your Website for SEO
What are backlinks and why do they help search engine rankings?
Backlinks 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.
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. Well written onsite blog articles can help.
However, every new website begins life with no backlinks and a Google PageRank of zero. That hurts your chances for good positioning on Google, so the most effective way to counteract that is to find ways of getting links added to other websites that link back to your site, including directories, discussion forums, blogs, social networking sites, and many others. We can help with that. We offer 6 different backlink building campaigns. One is certain to be perfect to promote your website.
We provide our SEO clients with a monthly report showing all the links added and the improvement in search engine rankings from month to month for the specific keywords that we target. We recommend the best keywords to target for your website, but the final decision is yours.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 of adding backlinks to your site is cumulative, so search engine positioning continues to progress over a period of months. All of our backlink campaigns create permanent one-way backlinks from U.S. websites only. We never use “link farm” websites or other techniques that can result in Google penalties.
Do you know where your website stands with Google? For example:
- How high up does your site come up in Google for your most important keyword (search) phrases?
- How many websites link to your site, and how many total backlinks to you have?
- How does your website compare to your major competitors’ sites?
