An introductory guide to backlink creation for your brand new website
Have you ever wondered why some websites rank higher than others in search engine results? It’s no secret that successful online marketing depends on well-written content, but the real question is how does one attracts traffic and generates revenue. One of the most effective ways to do this is by increasing your backlinks.
What are Backlinks?
A backlink is a link from one website or webpage which points to another page on the same website or web domain, this means that when someone uses Google (or any other search engine) and searches for a specific topic and they click through your site, it will count as a vote. The more votes you receive from people linking to your articles with their own articles the more likely you’ll come up at the top of the search engines.
Why are they important?
By increasing your number of backlinks you will be gaining more votes, each one has the potential to raise your website rankings and position in Google (or other Search Engines).
With regard to generating revenue, a well-structured campaign is reliant on a well-written content which in turn attracts traffic. If people can’t find you with a search engine or if they click through from lower results lists, there’s a high chance that many won’t bother going any further after viewing your site for a matter of seconds. A successful link-building campaign should generate new relevant visitors every day who then become potential buyers when exposed to effective marketing campaigns such as advertisement banners or affiliate products. With higher levels of traffic, it becomes easier to generate revenue.
How to build them?
To begin with, you’ll need to get your website listed on web directories. There are many sites that offer free and paid directory listings. The more articles you write the better your chances of receiving backlinks from authoritative websites such as Ezine or Hubpages etc all of which will help increase rankings and traffic.
There are some really effective methods of link building; one such method is blog commenting where you find relevant blogs in your industry and post comments with a link back to your site (Some bloggers accept these links within their content whilst others require that they’re used as footnotes).
Another popular method includes article marketing – submit articles to online directories and include a link back to your site at the end. These can even be used to get people to your social media sites more effectively.
The most important thing to consider is that the backlinks must be relevant and of good quality, a spammy link or a bad source of traffic will end up having a negative effect on your site. It’s also advisable to keep an eye out for blog networks that offer hundreds of blogs all accepting links from other similar sites, these can provide thousands upon thousands of backlinks in no time at all which will help increase rankings faster than you could have ever imagined!
So there you have it, a brief overview of what backlinks are and why they’re important. By increasing your number of votes through increased backlinks, you’ll not only raise your website ranking but also increase traffic flow and, as a result, generate revenue. It’s no secret that good search engine optimization is the key to success for any online business – using these simple methods will help get you one step closer to achieving this!
