  • We talk about Search Engine Optimization. We talk about the importance of getting a good rank in the search engines. But what is a BACKLINK? Maybe some of you know, but for those who do not know, it is inbound links that provides and increases your rank in the search engine.

    No one builds a website to get no or too little traffic in them. We create the website so that we can attract as many users as we can to our site. Backlinks help you achieve this goal because they are very important in getting the much coveted ranking in search engines. They are the links that connects back to your website via discussion boards, forums, blogs etc.

    Many search engines rank websites according to the popularity of their backlinks, and also their relevance to the website. So, the more popular your backlink is the higher your position in the search results. This is like a referral system. The more referrals you get the better for your websites. But there are other factors that the search engine takes into consideration, like, the rank of the websites sending the link to your websites, keywords connecting the two sites and relevance of that site to your website content. So, it is not enough to have lots of backlinks, it is very important to have them posted in relevant websites with good ranking. The quality of the data provided in your site is also important, i.e. if a user clicks on a backlink on a website about car repairing but the backlink takes him to a page where there is more information about buying a new car then car repairing, then the backlink will not be of much worth. The best way to get quality backlinks is to keep your content unique and to keep your website quality high. If users like your websites they will recommend you and post your backlinks in your blogs and websites.

    Search engines prefer backlinks that have been built over time as they indicate the true quality of the site that the inbound links are pointing to. It is easy for SEO companies to manipulate internal links but it is not easy to manipulate backlinks, another reason why search engines rely on them. Recently there has been an upsurge of pages which are made only for supplying links to websites. These are called link farms. These link farms should be avoided because if you use them to generate backlinks for your website, then your website might be banned by the search engines.

    Lastly, what we can conclude here that, maybe that building inbound or banklinks is a hard and time consuming job, and also it may cost us a considerable amount of money, but they are the building blocks of SEO and high quality backlinks can attract more traffic than will be possible otherwise.
