Backlinks and SEO, the Best Way to Market Online
For any webmaster or website owner, the most important part is driving traffic to their website, because after all, the point of a website is for people to see it. However, this can be hard due to the millions and millions of other websites out there, and many that most likely serve a similar purpose to your own. You can register with search engines such as Google, but it is very difficult to get a high ranking unless you already have a large popular website. So what is one to do? One word, backlinks.
Backlinks are the best way to spread your website around the web without spamming innocent web surfers. A backlink is simply a word or phrase on a webpage that when clicked on (and they are highlighted), directs the viewer to your website. These backlinks can be found on any website on the web, so they are a great way to direct traffic. They also increase your ranking in search engines for the more backlinks that you have to your site. You can create these on your own by joining forums and do-follow websites and posting comments and such with your link on them. You can also create backlinks here on Hubpages! Simply highlight the word or phrase and click the link button, then you can paste your website's URL and the backlink is created! If you don't have the time to create hundreds of backlinks on different sites, which many people don't, you can buy backlink packages. These are provided by website businesses such as Backlink Masters. You simply order the package and they build the backlinks for you.
Backlinks are a great way to make your site go viral in a short amount of time, and they are a great investment.
SEO, or Search Engine Optimzation, is a marketing strategy that makes it easier for search engines such as Google or Bing to find your site much easier. There are many different techniques to SEO, and they can be easily done if you have the time or money to invest. If you want to drive more traffic to your site and make it popular, then SEO is a must.
Backlinks, as described above, can increase your ranking in search engines because they see your website as more popular and a quality website. If your backlinks are keywords that go along with your website, search engines see your website as an expert on those keywords, so your site is more likely to be highly ranked when people search for those keywords.
Within the writing and content of your website, it is a good idea to include as many keywords for your website as you can without ruining the quality of the content. This makes it more likely that your pages in your website will appear in the search results for these keywords.
