    What Is A Quality Backlink?

    What do you consider to be quality backlinks?

    Any link that is on a website with high page rank (PR).  The better the page rank, the better the link.

      To clarify a bit more, a quality backlink should also be on a site related to your content.  A link on a site that is off topic will probably not send you much targeted traffic even if it does help you with page rank.

    A quality backlink is a link on a website that's related to your content.  Once upon a time, it didn't really matter what the site was about, so long as it ranked. Since the Penguin update, it looks like links from unrelated sites will not count for much - and if you overdo them, could even cause your site harm. 

    Look for sites that are on the same topic as yours, and think long-term,  It can be easier to get a link on a site while it's low-ranking, and you'll reap the benefits later if it becomes successful.

    Marisa's answer is right on! A quality backlink is a link to your site that is on other websites that:
    1. Have good authority (a high domain authority or page rank); and
    2. Relate to your site- if you're site is about carpet cleaning, getting a link from an SEO site is going to be less valuable (carry less "link juice") than a link from a site on home renovation.
