Your website requires traffic, and the more the merrier. To do so, you must be highly rated in search engine results.

How do you go about doing that?

Of course, with search engine optimization.

So what happens if you've gone through your content, added keywords, and improved your technical SEO but are still not ranking well?

So, what do you do now?

Building backlinks is the one thing you must prioritize.

But how do you go about doing that? And what exactly are backlinks? Are all backlinks created equal?

What are backlinks?

Backlinks are just hyperlinks that connect one website to another.

Backlinks, often known as "incoming links" or "inbound links," are one of the most significant aspects of search engine optimization.

Backlinks are useful tools for website developers because they make it simple to quote facts, source assertions, offer context, or make recommendations, among other things.

Another sort of link is internal links, which are links between pages on the same website. These are also important in SEO, but we won't get into that here.

Why are backlinks important?

Now that we've defined what a backlink is, it's time to answer the million-dollar question: Why do they matter?

The simplest answer is that your site's backlinks pass PageRank, which search engines utilize in their algorithm (along with many other variables) to assist decide the quality of your website and where it should rank in results pages.

They represent the popularity of your site among users and are an essential component of any SEO campaign.

Backlinks are also vital for discoverability because both people and search engine crawlers will follow links from other websites to your page.

What makes a good backlink?

When Google was just starting established in 1998, it built an algorithm called PageRank. Backlinks were one of the factors used when determining how well a webpage matched a user query.

But, even back then, not all backlinks were made equal. While the quantity of your inbound links influences your search ranking, the quality is as significant.

Let me explain: the more sites that link to your webpage, the stronger the signal to Google that your material is significant and thus worth connecting to.

In general, if your page has more backlinks than a comparable page, it will rank higher in organic search results.

Chime in.

    Hi everybody!

    I'm testing few tools to check my toxic backlinks, but all of them are paid.

    Ahrefs is nice, but only shows 25 backlinks, for more you have to pay around $80/month. Same with the rest, as Neil Pattel or Moz.

    I got only a personal site, very little activity, it really does'nt woth to pay around $900/year.

    What do you recommend?

    Thanks!

  • I understood that backlinks are very important for a website's visibility and trustworthiness. However, it is very tough to get backlinks from a high-quality website. So, is it ok to pay for backlinks especially when a website is new to drive more traffic?

    Not all links give the same value.
    Even though it's important to have backlinks, it's also important to avoid some of them.
    Spammy wiki an comment links will bring no value at all, regardless of what DA those sites have.

    Backlinks are links that point to your website from other websites. They can be earned in various ways, including SEO blog commenting or article syndication.
    When you want to increase the number of backlinks pointing to your website, it is essential to focus on content quality and engagement. This means creating good copy that is both interesting and informative for potential readers and promoting your content often on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
