Some authors would spend weeks on backlinks building their list. I don’t know how much you have done this, but it can take some time before you start getting good results from this activity.
What are Backlinks?
Backlinks are a way to build your credibility with your readers by establishing your author link to other sites that your reader can visit. They also boost the ranking of your site on the major search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Here are some things you should do for backlinks:
I’ve already explained to you what a backlink is and why you want to build them. They are essential to the growth of your site. Without backlinks you cannot rank high on search engines, no matter how good your content is. If you go into backlink building without a plan, you’ll get more traffic than you bargained for and most likely get blacklisted.
When you do a backlink building session, make sure you visit to the page where your potential visitor may want to go. It doesn’t have to be the homepage, but it has to be a page that people might want to click to get to your site. You want to choose a page where a lot of traffic might go to in order to get a lot of clicks. If you find a page that gets tons of traffic then don’t bother building backlinks there.
Keywords and Backlinks
When you go about tackling building, keep in mind that keywords are very important. The quality of your content is very important too. Don’t waste the time going over content that’s not very informative. Too many people who build backlinks make the mistake of thinking they are doing this just for the sake of pleasing their readers.
Keep in mind that there are links on Google to whatever pages you want to build links on. Go and sign up at Google AdWords. You will find some backlinks you can promote in your webmaster tool. This is a tool you should keep and use every time you think of something new to promote.
Before you set up any backlinks, check your domain name. Make sure you use a domain name that will generate traffic. If you use the same name constantly, you’re setting yourself up for black hat SEO practices.
There are people who make money from people’s webpages by creating backlinks. Some of these people pay up to $50 to link to sites that contain ads, banners, and other graphic images.
Another way you can do this is to write a blog or article that discusses a niche topic. When people find the article or blog that you have written about, they may feel like you are an expert in the topic.
People who have paid for links usually take one of two paths. They either leave their affiliate links on the page where they have the ad, or they pay per click.
I wouldn’t recommend you trying to get a lot of backlinks for free. Search engines love a hungry crowd, and they will see your page as a way to attract traffic to them. If you don’t put the effort in to get traffic then you won’t ever get any readers to your site.
Finally, when you build backlinks, don’t forget to make sure your site looks presentable. Nothing looks better to a search engine crawler than a site that looks spammed or has bad content.
