Backlinks For SEO

#Why You Should Build Quality Backlinks To Your Affiliate Website

Updated – 1st May 2018

Do you know the importance of having backlinks to your website?  Even if you do in this article I am going to outline the various aspects that put altogether make up the concept of having backlinks to your website, and the importance of making sure you have quality backlinks as opposed to poor ones.

Building backlinks is simply trying to get links that point directly to your website. Most people do not understand the concept of this SEO activity. However, if you are aiming to have a profitable online business, then you should understand the reasons why you should spend some time in building backlinks for you website, and the better the quality of these links the better.

The main reason why you need to build backlinks is to get a higher traffic volume and in such a way that when people come across your links over the internet, they are more likely to click on them and take a look at your website to see what’s on offer. When you are able to reach more people and direct more people to your site, the more likely you are going to get sales/commissions and referrals.  Having quality backlinks can also be the start of a good viral marketing campaign where people who notice your site are most likely to tell their friends about it, and so drive even more traffic to your website.

There are even more reasons why you should concentrate on how you can build backlinks effectively and among these reasons, the main one is for your site to get higher SEO rankings. The days when you simply had to put up your website, get a great domain name, and have your content filled with fantastic keyword-rich content in order to see your site at or near the top of the search results are long gone.  The way that the big search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo deal with page rankings and, search result positions are a good deal more complex now.

It’s well known among Internet Marketers that what drives up your popularity and page ranking are the number of quality links that are targeted towards your website. This means that the more links you get, the higher your chances are of being on top of the search results page. However, this does not mean that search engine providers prefer the quantity of links you have rather than the quality of them. In fact, Google and Yahoo do generally look at the quality of each link. Simply put, search engines will find your site to be more relevant and reliable if popular sites link to your one. This not only pulls your page popularity up, but it also drives more traffic to your site while allowing you to reach more readers and potential customers very quickly.

In the Internet Marketing world of today there are far too many ways to build backlinks. In fact, they are only limited by the creativity and patience of the internet marketer. With the advent of Internet technology and the evident ease it shows in communication, its impossible for you not to find an avenue where you can kick-off your internet marketing campaign. You can try finding sites that you like and simply contact the owners of websites and offer a link exchange. There are also the big social media sites such as Facebook, and Twitter to name but two which you can take advantage of. These sites can generate quality links to your site without requiring you to link back to their site as well.

At the end of the day it is you the marketer who must ensure your backlinks are of a high enough standard to satisfy the criteria set by the search engines.  If your standards are below par then of course the ranking of your website will be poor as a result, and in fact you would be lucky to be listed on the first five pages.

I hope all websites owners will read this article with interest and you will take heed of the tips and advice given in it.

To all Wealthy Affiliate members who read this I hope you certainly will take heed because without quality in all aspects of Internet Marketing you might as well not even start.

I make no apologies for that last remark because you are in Internet Marketing to make money are you not, and the best way to ensure this happens is to have a quality website with quality content that will enable you to get quality backlinks from other website owners.  There’s no way they will link back to a poor website is there, would you?

Please leave a comment below and let me and other visitors to this site know what you think.  If you’re not a member of Wealthy Affiliate then why not signup as a free Starter Member.  You will receive two free websites to get you started and you will also get free hosting.  A great deal, don’t you think?
