I am pretty new to the SEO game

All the hype seems to be finding relevant backlinks high DA, low spam links.

I am debating starting my backlinking journey and through my research have been overwhelmed with information.

I just have a couple of probably basic questions - which im sorry for, but maybe other newbies might find useful.

1, If im doing a reach out, where would i want the backlinking to point to, a particular article or the homepage?

2, are backlinks to money pages better to help the authority of the page rank better?

3, If i get a Dofollow backlink to a page - does the "juice" run through all the internal links and give a little boost to the pages?

4, what's your opinion on reaching out to a competitor and exchange guest posts?

I have a million question but i dont want to overstep my welcome, if any of you SEO pros could help me get a better understanding on these that would be perfect.

Thank you

    At first step go to website named "drop my link". There you put your keyword for which you want to rank you page. Then you will find a list of the competitors which are ranking in this keyword selection. Then go to the website "websiteseochecker". From there click the domain authority checker. After clicking I am not a robot, you will find the DA,PA and SS (Spam Score). Chose that website whose spam score is less and DA is high. Try to create backlink from that site. It works.

      Thank you for this actionable advice - I will definitely look into it, thank you.

      Would you still consider contacting competitors, exchanging links with competitors - is that advisable?

      Would you link to a particular page or the homepage?

      Ignore this and anyone else who suggests using DA to find good links. DA has absolutely nothing to do with the quality or strength of a link.

      What you want to look for are pages or sites that are relevant to what you are linking to. These pages can be existing pages or pages you create.

    Mostly all the people who have started their career as link building most of the time overwhelmed by the SEO technique. They go after searching for the processes which bring more results and more, which is quite understandable.

    There are few points to keep in the mind before starting the link building.

    1. Do check the website from which you are trying to get a backlink from, whether the site relevant to your business or services. This could give an additional benefit to your business.

    2. Check the keywords difficulty, before starting for a particular key-phrases or keywords. It will surely help you to gain some ideas on how easy or difficult to rank for the keywords.

    3. Are the website able to generate traffic or bring a potential customer or they are only creating bad domains for your business. Check often on the analytic tools.

    Few off-page activities you might consider:

    1. Guest blogging: One of the effective ways to reach your business niche blogger or article publishing site to publish your content.

    2. Business Listing: In this process, you could able list your business on the different business listing sites where user or audiences often visit for the information and other.

    3. Content Publishing: Creating relevant and engaging content is a successful way to reach more traffic and business for you.

    4. Focus on Local market: By creating a GMB page and listing or sharing your content on the local listing sites or publishing content on the local blogging sites can help you to engage with more potential local customers.

    There is no constant parameter to follow any particular process and get the result. Link building is an ongoing process and you need to stick on with the latest algorithm update to stay ahead in the race.
    Thank You!!

        You need to mix links. The main domain needs links, but each article needs links too.

    There is not a specific one when it comes to off-page link building activity. You need to work on every aspect every activity has its own importance as per SEO Perspective. But you can certainly start with guest blogging, blog commenting on your specific business niche blog, worthy content sharing with relevant information.

    Thank You!!

    Backlinking is important for ranking higher on SERPs , so you need to focus on link building. With nofollow on good sites, you may not get the juice what you are expecting but still get organic traffic on to your website.

    Half dozen + totally useless "advises" drfined as "things not to do"

    Simple advise.
    You want get any backlinks if content quality you are offering is below garbage level.
    The only backlinks friends you're having at this point are directories and some related
    to your subject blogs but even then if your source deserved to be backlinked to.

    Oh, BTW. Nothing is happened overnight.
    Let us know 1 year from now where have you ended up.
