Link building is very important to achieving high search engine rankings, and there is hardly any valuable search engine that doesn’t consider link building as a factor for ranking websites. Other method of SEO has been seriously achieved, even though link building is also being abused, there is limitation to how it can be abused and it has been the best method for ranking web pages in the search engines.
To know the importance of link building, some experts even said that as long as the protocol “URL” is still valid and important for the internet to work effectively then links will also be a major factor in achieving high search engine rankings. Below are some tips to consider when starting your link building campaign.
1. Anchor Text
The anchor text is a very important factor in enhancing your link building efforts because it tells the search engines what your website is about. In case you don’t know what an anchor text is, take a look at this online success, you will notice that the linked word is online success while the url is www.dataentryforall.net – The anchor text for this example is “online success”, it is also important to make sure the anchor text you use is the keyword you are interested in ranking for and that it is also relevant to your website.
The relevance of the website linking to you to that of your website is also a very important factor in link building. It wouldn’t be a good option if all links to your political website is from a business website. Try to get link from closely related websites in your niche.
The authority of the website linking to you is also very important, it wouldn’t be a better option to only acquire links from low quality pages in order not to make your website look like a spam website. Try to make your link acquisition a mix, acquire links from both relevant high quality sites and also mix it up with links from other small websites.
4. Quality content
Writing quality content will automatically get backlinks without you even raising a finger. Try to be clear and unique in your writing, be respectful to your readers and much as possible and your blog post will get as much link as soon as possible.
This is where so many people miss out, I have personally discovered that search engine rankings don’t occur overnight but it can rather take days or even months for you to achieve that high search engine ranking especially if it is a competitive one. Try to wait patiently while building relevant and authoritative links using the right anchor texts and very soon your search engine rankings will skyrocket.
The above are best practices when building links to your website, they are Relevancy, Authority of the website linking and also right usage of anchor text.
Happy link building.
