I've heard a 100 times that SEO is changing and we need to focus on quality and not quantity. Does this mean to post more unique content manually instead of using automated tools like AMR?

What are the best softwares for finding the quality and relevant links that you should focus on?
#backlinks #quality #quantity

    It means getting links from websites/pages that have good Google "trust" rather than spamming with automated tools like Scrapebox or Xrumer.

    By focusing on quality backlinks you can assure that you've got a solid foundation for rankings in the future, where as lower quality links are quickly being vetted by Google.

    Quality definitely outweighs quantity in the SEO world right now. Create quality content also with quality backlinks.

      Are there software tools that I can use to fine the best quality backliks? I have used traffic travis and market samurai for the "Competitors" feature. I then get the highest rated backlinks that point to their sites. Is there a better tool for finding potential quality backlinks?

    We Always Make Quality Submissions for getting good Ranking in Search Engines, we have to ignore Quantity Submissions. If we are making Submissions with Quality and Quantity, then it is very good. But if we are making Submissions without Quality then it is meaningless.

    Useful content is primarily the most important factor. What do you mean and how do you judge "best quality backlinks"? If your website is rather new...why do you think other established websites will link you? The only option is if you have too good a content or something useful related to those sites that they "force" to link back to you.

    By best quality backlinks I mean higher PR and authoritative sites of relevant content. I know there are tools that will go out and find thousands of possible backlinks, but I'm looking for a tool that will find sites with relative content, high PR and authority, and also analyze my competitors top backlinks and organize the information in a way that I can use to go out build backlinks for myself.

    if you could get many quality links, go with it. no doubt.
    but if it is difficulty to obtain quality links, quantity is still better than nothing.

      I'm actually looking at scrapebox for doing backlink research. Is it better than market samurai or traffic travis's "competition" feature? both TT and MS can view competitor backlinks and organize them by PR, Authority, and anchor text. Will scrapebox do more?

    @Letsurf,

    I am writing again to your post. I wonder if I ask you to spell out how do you find "best quality backlinks" manually? DO you have a plan in mind? If you do then a software can be created.

    I mean that if your requirement is subjective then it will be difficult to provide a solution/review of the right prodcut to help you.

    What type of quality backlinks you mean? Site to site exchange? Quality directories like Yahoo, DMOZ, Quality article directories? Guest posts to authority websites? Top notch blog commenting? Find hubs, squido posts for commenting? Yahoo answers (no follow) but increases your "participation" value and some traffic to your site.

    I mean each will have a different approach to find out

      I'm looking for the best program for achieveing a variety of backlinks. For example, if I research competition in market samurai it will show me all the backlinks that point to higher ranking competitors. Weather they are a blog, article, or just a normal website with link exchange. I'm looking for a program that will help me find a variety of places that I can build quality links.

    firstly, to answer the primary question about software for "quality" back links, there already is a software for that. It is called "spyglass" and it checks competitors backlinks. In addition to that it also tells you whether or not they are do follow or don't follow links, as well as the page rank of each back link. I don't remember how much it costs, but it also does come in a package with other useful seo tools. There is also market samurai which, I believe does the same, but is cheaper.

    Secondly, with the change in the algorithm to panda, quality did become key, but with the advent of panda x it did become both quality and quantity at the same time. What does that mean? It means that now you have to have a mix of both do follow and don't follow back links from a variety of different page rank sites. In addittion, submissions to niche directories as well as overall directories play a roll in the panda x algorithm, as does citations from a variety of sites.

    Then I would suggest magic submitter a cheaper cousin of senukex. You get web2.0 sites, article directories, press release sites, social bookmarking sites.

    IBP is another program which provides you info and link opportunity for relevant niche websites. Personally I don't like IBP other than the SEO report feature.

    Since I own SBI (sitesell.com) For free reciprocal link exchange I use www(dot)value-exchange(dot)sitesell(dot)com/

    Let me know if this helps to certain extent :-)

      I would suggest sourcing a good reliable SEO company to build a one way back links program for you. If you're going to invest in software you may as well pay a reputable SEO company who would be accountable to you as you are paying them.

      I'm also an SBIer and although SBI has a great set of tools and I would recommend them everytime, I am not over enthused with value exchange.

      Quality one way back links is the answer:-)

    This holds true that quantity is way better than quality. Consider this:

    100 PR1 sites = 100
    50 PR3 sites = 150

    Therefore, quality will always have the weight advantage.

    Quality is always better than quantity. I’ve seen some few website than can rank good on the SERP with only few baclinks compare to some that have thousands of backlinks and still not lucky enough to land on the first page google search.
    But the real question is what’s the criteria to consider as quality backlinks? i heard that the less OBL is good for serp and links from the same niche.

    First of all, I want to say that I do not prefer any software for finding backlinks. Quality is better than Quantity as all major search engines give more importance to quality. There is lots of seo channels that can be used for quality backlinks.

    I prefer we must focus on the Quality of Content and increase the number of Quality Back links. As posting unique quality content is more important than increasing the quantity of the low content. As it will be a waste of time to keep posting low quality content.

    Quality links matter because if you have alot of links having lower quantity then you can up in SERP but it's not long losting a new google update can make your SERP down that's why mostly try to link your web pages on that sites which have a good reputation in Google it will help you always.
