Moreover, it is how many Bank Alert you’ve gotten so far.
There are several ways to deal with this ( getting to have a productive website or a blog), Am gonna introduce you to Solid Back Links, How it works, and How you gonna create it by yourself.
Previously, we have published on Beradiva The different between a Blog and a Website, Users of either one of the two or both must be very clear of these terms, for positive understanding.
What Are Backlinks?
A “backlink” is one of the most used words in the world of search engine optimization (SEO).
Many bloggers who have only recently started a blog or a website often struggle to understand what the term “backlink” means.
I hope to offer you an understanding of what Backlinks are, why they are essential to SEO, and why they are important for your online success. You’ll also learn how to analyze the Backlinks, of your competitors, and how to acquire them for your site.
Backlinks are incoming links to a webpage.
When a webpage links to any other page, it’s called a backlink. In the past, Backlinks were the major metric for the ranking of a webpage. A page with a lot of Backlinks tended to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google. This is still true to a large extent.
Here is a glossary of common terms related to Backlinks that you should know:
Link Juice: When a webpage links to any of your articles or your website’s homepage, it passes “link juice”. This link juice helps with the ranking of the article, and also improves the domain authority. As a blogger, you can stop passing link juice by using a no-follow tag.
No-Follow Link: When a website links to another website, but the link has a no-follow tag, that link does not pass link juice. No-follow links are not useful concerning the ranking of a page as they do not contribute anything. In general, a webmaster uses the no-follow tag when he/she is linking out to an unreliable site.
Do-Follow Link: By default, all the links that you add to a blog post are do-follow links and these pass link juice.
Linking Root Domains: This refers to the number of Backlinks, coming into your website from a unique domain. Even if a website has linked to your website ten times, it will only be considered as one linked root domain.
Low-Quality Links: Low-quality links are links that come from harvested sites, automated sites, spam sites, or even porn sites. Such links do far more harm than good. This is one reason you should be careful when buying Backlinks.
Internal Links: Links that are going from one page to another within the same domain are called internal links. The process itself is referred to as internal linking or interlinking.
Anchor Text: Text that is used for hyperlinks is called anchor text. Anchor text Backlinks, work great when you are trying to rank for particular keywords.
Having to Know the meaning of Backlinks, the Next question is…
How Does It Work?
Hope you know that Backlinks also referred as inbound links are link backs, an incoming hyperlink to your website and that’s why they are called backlinks.
Clearly, Backlinks are two types – do-follow (which search engine traverse through) and no-follow which isn’t traversed by search engines, as defined.
Do follow passes link juice (passes SEO benefits to the website that’s linked) and no-follow won’t.
Do you wonder why no-follow really exists? It’s merely because to stop spammers by getting benefited by search engines.
Traffic from external backlinks is counted as referral traffic in Google analytics.
How backlinks are used to be? Let’s go to the past. Search engines used to count the number of backlinks and relevancy to determine which position to rank a website in search engine results.
Anchor text plays a great role in determining relevancy. That’s why old SEOs tend to get thousands of anchor text backlinks and even paid lots of bucks to gain backlinks.
In the past, backlink metric was basically manipulative and anyone can rank first in search engine results. And the count of backlinks played a greater role.
What are backlinks now? Moving to the present. In the present scenario, if you build tons of anchor-texted backlinks, you’ll get penalized by search engines and thrown down to the third page.
A deep anchor-texted backlink is clearly marked by Google as manipulative and won’t produce the same results as in the past.
Backlink quality is considered as the most important metric now than the count of backlinks.
Here are some best practices of backlinks in this era.
- Build backlinks based on semantic keywords. Eg: If your core keyword is “online clothing”, try to build backlinks on related words like men’s clothing, ladies clothing, clothes in India and so on
- Thousands of backlinks with the same anchor text produce negative results. Apart from disavowing low-quality backlinks, I did see people disavowing their backlinks due to this over anchor text density
- Getting 1000 backlinks is proven to be less worthy than 10 high authority backlinks
How Do You Create It?
The broken-link building method: It works perfectly to create one-way backlinks. The technique involves contacting a webmaster to report broken links on his/her website. At the same time, you recommend other websites to replace that link. And here, of course, you mention your own website. Because you are doing the webmaster a favor by reporting the broken links, the chances of a backlink back to your website are high.
The advantage of guest articles: Guest blogging is the most effective way to reach new audiences. By publishing articles on other popular websites, you’ll get your content in front of new readers and win more exposure. Sometimes, it’s not just about the backlink, but about increasing your online reputation or your social media followers.
Backlinks through infographics: Infographics are one of the most popular methods for bringing traffic to your website and gaining valuable backlinks. They’re also great because they’re easy to understand and share.
