Search Engine Optimization- Back Linking
To answer the question asked by Huber Sam3m (this is a link back to his profile), "Would it be possible for someone to assist the clueless among us by walking us through the backlinking process, step by step?
Well Sir, I will surely try to provide you with some simplified steps for back-linking. As a content writer forwebsite design companies in San Antonio, I have written more than just a few SEO Websites. Truth is, SEO as a whole is a guessing game and process of elimination. Every website design company has their own way of providing SEO Services to their customers, some tactics work, others can actually harm a websites ranking on Search Engines.
Search Engine Optimization comes in two parts; Organic SEO and Non-Organic SEO. Each has its own benefits, and depending on who you speak with, the significance of Organic vs. Non Organic will also change.
Back linking is a part of a Non Organic SEO Package. Why are backlinks so important? The more backlinks pointing to your website, the more link juice is created, and the more relevant Google will consider your site for those key phrases linking from one website (or article) to another, also creating more doors to your website from other parts of the World Wide Web.Simple, right? Well, I wouldn’t say simple is the correct term, more like time consuming and often exhausting.
A Simple 5 Step Process to Use for Back Linking
Let me explain in a simple ‘Let’s Get Started with Backlinking’, System.
Step #1. Know you’re back linking relevance. Back linking although part of Non Organic SEO, is often dependent on the websites Organic SEO (Especially if you are hoping that some stranger with great content online, will think you are great enough to want to backlink to your content or site). This is why it is important to use applicable, traffic driving key words that have low competition, but high searches. Place the search terms you want to be found for, into the content of the website. The further up on the content of the site the search word is placed, the better. (Remember, with SEO… every individual page of your website is seen as its own entity when Google’s crawlers go over the content and determine the relevance. Each page you want to be searchable will need SEO).
Google Likes You to Be Social- Give Google What It Likes
Step#2. Social Media is a must. Not only are they some of the easiest backlinks to obtain links back to a website or page, they are extremely relevant. Facebook has a PR of 9… With Google having a PR of 10, 9 is an extremely relevant page to link from… PR and PA as well as DA are all some things you may want to look at when preparing to distribute blogs to create multiple links backs to a site. The higher the better, and the better will result in your Hubs or Website climbing Search Engines with more ease.
Step #3. For Huber’s, I would suggest start with creating link juice between your pages, and implementing you Social Media Sites into the mix… These are the fastest and easiest ways to get more doors created for you. May I suggest the following Social Media Sites to create yourself an account on; Twitter, Facebook, Stumble Upon, DIGG, Tumblr, MySpace and LinkedIn. Each of these sites allows you to build your audience and traffic to your website. It will not happen overnight but it will happen if you stay active in your social media tactics.
Socially Connected, it is being used for way more than Instant Messaging...
Original and Fresh...Always and Forever Luv Google
Step #4. Blog it Baby… Blog-Blog-Blog…haven’t you heard, content is KING of the internet, and because of this, if you do not have a company blog, you are asking to be 2nd rate. For the first time I know of, writers are in high demand, all because of this content and SEO stuff. Everyone needs fresh content because Google gets all warm and fuzzy when there is new, unique content on the web. I suggest that all you Hub Page writers get to writing and blogging on other sites, if the focus is on driving some traffic back to your hubs.
As you blog remember this…NO COPIED CONTENT! Although you want the Search Word(s) to be the anchor text in your Hub, as well as and the Blog you are linking back from, if you copy the content from one site onto another site, you have just made the content un-unique, this will in return hurt your rankings on both sites. Although you had written original and unique content initially, you become less relevant the instant that you copied and pasted you content.
If you want to maintain multiple blogs to link back from, go ahead and take the time to rewrite your content by adding some additional information to the article/blog/hub you are wanting to be ranked for, or perhaps discussing your topic from a different angle. No matter how you rewrite your content you must make each of the articles different but also relevant to what you are wanting to be ranked for. Creating uniqueness and relevance in what you write is something that others and most importantly Google will love you for.
Share Your Work...
Step #5 every time you publish a new Hub or a new article, let others know. Send an email to Mom, to Dad; to your friends and your Boss (only if you want your Boss to see the side of you, that will be on the top of Search Engines). These emails act as more doorways to your Hubs, and the more doors with relevance the more success you can expect on the results pages for your search terms.
I hope that this is simple enough to get you started back linking and drive additional traffic to your Hubs or websites. Good Luck, Search Engine Optimization can be a bit of a beast.
