Although Google has repeatedly mentioned that manipulative and low quality backlinks will hurt ranking, building relevant and quality backlinks still remain the single most effective way to rank high.

What's your thought on this?

        Hi Yukon,

        Would like to hear your knowledgeable thoughts on this, if you are suggesting one site should have more than one niche?

        It will be more beneficial to everybody here if you can provide information rather than just sarcasm.

            You make it sound like there's a contradiction in there. I don't see it.

            I thought he was rude, disrespectful and sarcastic and that was not good, yet you're laughing and agreeing.

            I need to know once and for all, is Yukon rude, disrespectful and sarcastic or not?

If everybody can have the same objectives : offer help, asking for help and sharing important information, then this forum can really be a more meaningful one. We don't need sarcasm, disrespectful comment or anything like that here.

    I believe the key is in the phrase "manipulative and low quality back links will hurt ranking". If your backlinks appear genuine then Google will most likely rank your site accordingly.

    If your back links appear false or manipulative, e.g. a rush of 5000 low quality backlinks from a Fiverr offer, then Google will at best not increase your ranking and may reduce your ranking on the supposition that you are also doing other things that are manipulative.

    Yes, agree!

    But the different is what quality backlink is. Quality backlinks are not only that, the results depend on the way that each one defines the word "quality backlink"

    SEO experts always make other people link to them instead of doing it themselves.

      Yes i agree to that. But if we are having very little traffic and are not ranked well, the possibility of others reading our content is very low and therefore the possibility of people linking to us will be very low as well.

      When we are just starting off or when we still have low traffic and not ranking well, we have to be pro-active in getting these quality backlinks so that we can rank high.

    When our site is still not ranking well, and has very little traffic, the most effective way to improve ranking and drive traffic is to build quality backlinks.

    An effective way to build quality backlinks is to exchange guest post.

    Quality Backlinks has always being important ranking factor for Google and will always be part of ranking factors. From past many years Google have started considering many different factors apart from backlinks but still backlinks will be important in future.

    Building backlinks is still a very important tool in SEO, the enhancements made by Google enables it to track low quality back links which are usually bought. Saying that it will hurt your ranking is lacking, it should be mentioned that it is because Google will penalize you for playing their system.

    Needless to say, if you are on a campaign then focus on getting high quality backlinks or nothing at all.

    If everybody is just busy with manipulating and having low quality backlinks then there would be no room for actual participation. The building of quality backlinks promote almost genuine participation and community with bloggers through blog commenting and guest posting.

    My opinion and suggestion is yes. Backlinks still keeps an important role now a days for ranking keywords effectively. But you have to be more careful than before. You can't build random backlinks. This will not help you anymore. So try to find out legitimate, niche relevant high pr backlinks. Thank you!

      One good way of building legit backlinks is to guest post, create quality content and post them on relevant websites.
