SEO (search engine optimization) is always associated with a backlink. What is a backlink? I try to define backlinks according to my understanding; basically, backlink or linkback is a link or a link from a website to another website, in other words a website providing recommendations to their users to visit other websites
So what is our goal to build backlinks? The ultimate goal is to make our website more popular in the eyes of search engines, such as google.com. Websites or blogs that have a lot of quality backlinks usually will get special attention from the search engines, and search engines will place your website / blog on the main page of search results for certain keywords. How to build and create quality backlinks to your blog?
Ok, here are some ways to build and create quality backlinks to your blog or business website we:
1. Through Social Bookmarking Sites
The initial idea is a social bookmarking site that allows users to save URLs or links from sites that they like so you can easily find when they want to reopen. In its development, the social bookmarking site widely used by SEO experts to help popularize a web page in search engines.
Search engines like Google are also exploring the social bookmarking pages to determine which web pages are often stored by internet users. And of course this will affect the search results in the search engines.
2. Through the Article Directory
Article directories are often used for marketing and backlink building. We can build backlinks from the article directory sites and how to create quality articles submitted to article directory sites. Many article directories are already very well known today, for English as Ezinearticles.com, Articlebase.com, and others.
3. Through Blogwalking
Blogwalking are activities visit other blogs and leave comments, and we could leave our website URL posted on the comments. There are two advantages of blogwalking activities, the first is we get a backlink, and the second is a direct visit from the owner of the blog as well as others who commented on the blog.
Its very important to remember is to give good comments and not carelessly so as not to be considered spam by the blog owner. Prior to leaving comments on the blog should read the article, then please leave a comment that is associated with the article. Do not give the origin of the comments, such as "Nice article, thanks yes", "thanx dude", "Wow just knew ya", and other comments that are too short.
