The Importance Of Backlinks

Updated on August 14, 2009

Backlinks

I really wanted to save this for later since you really can get lost on this subject but hopefully you're ready and I'll try not to overwhelm you with too much information. In other words we'll take it slow. Now since we've pretty much covered the essentials of search engine optimization and how important that is if you can add good backlinking your traffic will rise dramatically.

So what are backlinks? Backlinks are links that start on another site and point to yours. Search Engines look at backlinks very highly thus ranking your site higher which brings in more and more traffic. Another factor is if your website or blog is good people will start linking to it so think of it as having people doing work for you without having to pay them.

Now that doesn't mean you can sit back and relax because you still have to backlink yourself. A great way to get started is by writing one article to Ezinearticles.com and one to Goarticles.com. They each have to be over 300 words(the more the better)and they have to be of original content.

After submitting the articles it usually takes about a week to hear back from them either accepting you as an Expert Publisher or asking you to re-submit a new article. Take your time with this, watch your spelling and most importantly make it original. When you sign up to submit your articles go to the Authors Page and that's where you'll put in your URL(Backlink).

Other ways of getting backlinks are getting listed in directories, posting in forums, blogs and article directories. Another is by using a tool called a Backlink Builder which you can find on a great site called www.webconfs.com/backlink-builder.php. There is so much useful information on this site you'll be amazed. It's a good idea to really explore this site(spend a good hour or two)and research, research, research.

If you can get listed in Yahoo and DMOZ directories you'll almost certainly get quality backlinks which will get you noticed by both search engines and a lot of their visitors. This is free to do and the only negative to it is it can take a while(sometimes 30 days)but it's worth the wait.

This is the first part of my Backlink coverage. Check back tomorrow for part 2 and get started on what I just discussed. You control your own destiny.
