Nearly every day I get people ask me, what are good backlinks? This might not immediately come to mind, however, the answer to the question is quite easy. Many people think that any backlink that is on an appropriate page that has good Google Page Rank is a “quality” link. I don’t agree. In the end, I’ve created many Private Blog Network Links on relevant websites with a decent Page Rank, and STILL have seen no changes in SERPs. This is why:
In the first place, given the volume of spam that is out in the world and the sheer number of advertisers trying to manipulate Google every day Google is always seeking innovative ways to assess whether backlinks have quality. There are a myriad of ways of getting this done over the years but ultimately it boils to- regardless of the method used- distinguishing between the two types of backlinks Google really wants, and that is a genuine “vote” from another website or if the site is only to boost the ranking.
In the event that the URL is according to Google’s view it is a natural “vote” for another website it is considered a high-quality backlink. If a link is determined to be solely a means to help the website rise in rankings, it won’t be considered to be a quality backlink, or could be deemed as less significant. Therefore, if you’re trying to make quality backlinks it is important to keep in mind that they should be genuine “votes”, or at least appear to be so to Google.
For those who are interested, it’s much simpler than you imagine. In reality, there are plenty of different methods to obtain hyperlinks that keep Google’s needs in your mind. They include forums as well as social media marketing answering questions to Yahoo! Answers, and more. I’ve discovered that a long-lasting quality backlink can be derived by incorporating links into blog posts on the web. These are definitely the top quality backlinks you could build for the website(s).
What’s the reason? It’s a simple question. If the blog you’re using isn’t yours (and you’re not planning on criminal activities like hacking into the blog) or you’re not paying the owner of the blog to share your hyperlinks (prohibitively costly) it’s a challenge to find links that look like this. Nine out of ten links found in blog posts are genuine, vote-based by users and that’s the reason that Google takes them seriously.
To confirm this for yourself, take a look at high-ranking Wikipedia sites and the backlinks they have. If you look at the backlinks they have carefully, you’ll notice that the majority are blog posts that have similar topics. In light of the fact that Wikipedia has a good ranking even in keywords that have a lot of competition, wouldn’t it make sense to follow their strategies?
It’s good to know that there are different ways to create high-quality backlinks, as blogging can become very costly. Take a look at the level of difficulty for the backlinks you’re creating , and are they something that people can do independently? It’s likely that it’s really difficult for the average person to get together and make a large number of backlinks by hand and most people do not create these backlinks by themselves it’s likely Google is aware of that, too and will consider your backlinks seriously.
