Today we are going to talk about backlinks and why they are important to your website’s success.

There are so many things that factor into the reasons why or why not your website will rank well in the search engines.  Some of them only google knows and you could spend your life trying to figure it out — but don’t waste your time — because there are some things that we know for sure will affect how well your website will rank and that’s what you should focus your efforts on.  Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.  Find out what is already known to work and then go full force with that.

The correct use of backlinks is a website strategy that you want to learn, understand, and spend sometime everyday working on.  It is a well known fact that the more links you have pointing to your website the more importance google and the other search engines give to your site.

A few tips to remember when building backlinks to your site are:

  1. The more relevant the link has to do with your niche the better
  2. Use targeted keywords for your backlink if possible
  3. The higher the page rank of the site that is linking to you the more relevance google will give it
  4. Try to get at least 8-10 backlinks a day
  5. Your backlink campaign can include directories, blog commenting, forum posts, sites like .gov and .edu, advertisements on other sites, reciprocal linking, articles, press releases, and social media
  6. Stay consistent and do a few each day and before you now it you will have 1000’s of links pointing to your website and ranking well in the search engines — Taking action each day is the key to success!

A tool that I have found to be helpful for my backlinking campaign is called 5000 Backlinks

Building links to your website can be a time consuming task – that’s why having a tool to make it easier is a necessity.  This tool not only will save you time it will also make it more likely for you to stay consistent with your efforts because it makes it easy.  Speaking from my own experience — once I found this tool my backlinking campaign increased by 10 x’s my normal efforts — because now it is fast and easy.  And if you are anything like me anything that can make my life simpler is what I need and want!
