Building Powerful Backlinks and How to Do It

Building powerful backlinks is essential when it comes to ranking your websites! If you do not build great backlinks then your hope of ever ranking in search engines is gone.

But Why Are Backlinks SO Important?

The reason why backlinks are so important is because the Internet is basically one big popularity contest. The reason is because websites that are good are supposed to have lots of other websites linking to them. Websites with really good content should also have high authority websites pointing to them. This is because if your website is truly good, then it will be popular among other websites and therefore give you more legitimacy in the eyes of the search engines. Think of backlinking as kinda like generating web design leads for your web design business. So let us delve right into how to build very powerful backlinks.

Method #1: Submitting Articles with Backlinks of Your Website From Article Directories.

This is a quite simple way of building great backlinks pointing back to your website. Submitting articles from websites such as HubPages and Infobarrel can be a beneficial way to backlink back to your website. Simply submit articles related to your website on these article directories and they will allow some backlinks to your website in the process. This is beneficial because article directories have high authority and people also review your content meaning that the content you write is seen as more legitimate. This is also a great way to gain popularity about your blog or website!

Method #2: Use Social Media

Using social media such as Tumblr, Pinterest, and Twitter are all good ways of getting backlinks for your website. Every time someone favorites or re-shares your posts on these social media websites, it counts as a back-link! Search engines also notice this because social media influences rankings. If you have lots of followers on websites such as Facebook and Twitter, then you are more likely to be ranked higher in the search engines. This is simply because you have many people that like and re-share your content on the social media websites.

Method #3: Comment On Other Peoples Blogs and Websites

This is another way to gain popularity and backlinks back to your website. By commenting on other blogs and websites that allow you to submit a link to your website, you will be able get a backlink from their website back to yours. Always make sure to leave constructive feedback on those websites and do not just spam them with backlinks. This can be a very bad idea considering that most blogs will not allow comments without approval. Besides, you want to also become friends with other bloggers and always leave great feedback. Who knows, they might even return you the favor by recommending your website to their followers. This is a great way to make your website legitimate while building a great backlinks that will get the word about your website around.

Method #4: Use Other SEO Tactics To Build Backlinks

Using other well known search engine optimization tactics to build backlinks can be a great way to supplement the methods I have outlined in this post. I suggest you read blogs and books on backlinks and seo to help get insights on how to rank better. That is why I highly suggest reading the book called "Ultimate Guide to Link Building: How to Build Backlinks, Authority and Credibility for Your Website" by Eric Ward. The book as a 5 STAR rating on and is great resource to help you rank in the top spots of Google. This book is also a top rated seller and should not be missed by anyone that is trying to rank their websites!

To Conclude

So remember, knowing how to build great backlinks can mean that you are increasing your web design qualifications that you must know in order to have your websites ranking and banking. So always use backlinks as a sharp tool in you search engine optimization arsenal!
