The power of backlinking

We all know that traffic is the lifeblood of any online business, but I am sure that you know that getting traffic can be hard or very expensive. Got a great traffic-getting tip for you today on the power of backlinking and why you need this.

Websites that rank high in the search engines typically have one thing in common. Lots of valuable, relevant backlinks!

If this is new to you, a “backlink” is a link on another web page that points back to your site.

The more websites which link to your web pages the more valuable search engines perceive you to be.

Search engines give more leverage to links from sites which are popular and credible and from sites which are relevant to your website topic.

However, not all links are created equal.

There are different types of links.

  • A direct link looks like a basic website address,
    for example,

  • A text link occurs when the webpage address is embedded in the text. Readers simply click on the link and are redirected to a new website page.

  • If the link is to an internal web page, for example, an article published on a website, rather than the home page, it is called a “deep link.”

You can encourage linking to your website by:

  • Adding content to your site.
  • Submitting to article directories.
  • Publishing press releases.
  • Blogging and participating in social networking forums, chat rooms and social networking sites.

Make sure to add backlinking to your portfolio of traffic tricks for no-cost traffic to your website(s).
