Reading alot of posts about backlinks as a newbie this is an area that i'm not 100% on.

I hear the the backlinks are from high PR sites then i hear that just get backlinks from sites related to your niche.

Then social bookmarking and indexing your backlinks.

I am very confused, can anyone explain these to me please.

What is social bookmarking and how do i index my links?

thanks

    I think it varies depending on your strategy. People develop what works for them.
    i don't think forum links, article marketing, blogs and stuff are the way of the future though.

    Hi camthomas,

    Please allow me to clarify a few points for you.

    First it is important to understand that websites do not have PR. PR is assigned to individual pages. You don't need backlinks from high PR websites, you need backlinks from high PR pages. This distinction between "pages" and "sites" is very important to understanding how search engines rank web pages.

    Likewise, "website" topics have nothing to do with SEO, search engines only look at web "page" topics. You can often add content to the places you are placing your backlinks, so add keyword rich content when you place your backlinks, particularly in and near the anchortext element.

    Presuming you are pursuing SEO for the sake of generating targeted traffic, you efforts will go farther if you consider the interests of real human users in your tactics. By targeting websites, that are relevant to yours, as locations to place your backlinks, your content will be more targeted to the visitors of that website and will likely generate more targeted direct link traffic to your pages. Better targeted traffic begets more naturally earned backlinks.

    Backlinks won't directly benefit your SEO efforts until after they are indexed by search engines. To be indexed, they must first be discovered by search engine bots. Social bookmarking, as well as XML-RPC blog pinging are useful techniques to alert search engine bots of your new or updated content, in this case the content where your backlink is embedded.

      I think this is a brilliant clear answer. the Italic words are very important to clearify the views. However, don't be confused with these bcz the last point may be typically new to you.

      anouther quick question,

      when people say about anding anchor text and contextual backlinks.

      does that mean say if i leave a blog comment do i put the name as the keyword or do i put the link in the actual comment itself?

      and if it is in the actual comment, do i use html code to add the link within the comment.


      Thank you everyone for your help, and i'm sorry i know you have probs been asked these question a million time :-)

        Yes - usually people will do this.

        You may get better results if you write some unique and good articles on the same topic as your site and do an anchor text backlink somewhere within the text.
