There are many articles, eBooks and blog posts about how to create backlinks. There is much confusion about the subject.
In SEO, backlinks are used to make your site more popular. You can also get links from other sites, articles, blogs, forums, etc. The problem arises when you try to follow these rules to the letter and end up creating backlinks that are useless or that don’t even exist.
Backlinks are supposed to increase traffic to your site, but they will also help your search engine ranking. I would strongly recommend that you use backlinks to enhance your rankings rather than trying to keep track of every link on your page.
To see if a link is relevant to your site, you can examine it by visiting the page where it’s placed. If there is no information about the page at all, chances are that the link isn’t being used correctly.
I will be honest with you, I don’t do this very often, but I have been doing it for a long time and my site rankings have risen considerably since I started. It’s not nearly as difficult as you may think.
When I start creating backlinks, I look at the ‘about’ section of each page on my site and decide what theme I want to follow. Usually this is determined by the type of material I’m writing. After all, I am going to be linking to a blog for advice on money management or something similar.
Now I know exactly what kind of page I need to link to, I check the ‘backlinks’ tab on my website. If there are no backlinks on my page, then I can easily create them using the free tools available online.
If you’ve used a service like Backlinko in the past, I suggest you use it again to link your sites with your business partner. If your business partner has created a great page, then we should both use a backlink from their page.
The whole idea behind a link is to create backlinks that are not only from your partner’s page, but also from several other pages that you might find relevant. That way, if someone visits your site and sees that your partner’s page has been linked to, they will visit your site as well.
I always use two different words when creating a backlink: “from”to.” “From” is what is going to refer to the page your partner’s page is on.
Then I add in the “to” portion of the backlink, which is usually the keyword that is associated with that page. This part can vary, but most of the time it is going to include the word “related.”
Creating backlinks that are useful and relevant to your business, can make a good link count, but only if you don’t try to create as many as you can. In order to make sure that your links aren’t treated as spam, it’s best to limit your backlinks to one page per month.
