What Is The Worth Of Backlinks In Your Online Business?

by James Hicks

There is no doubt in my mind that those amoungst you who are aware of how Google works and reaching page 1 will reach agreement with me when I say that backlinks are so very important in getting that all important 1st page position. Of course if they don't cost anything then everyone loves that!.

If you are new to internet marketing then very briefly a backlink is basically another link from someone elses website that is directed at your website,they are also know as inbound links. So let's say for example you wrote an article and put a link in the author resource box that points back to your website, that's a backlink! Pretty simple huh? Or another example would be if your friend had a website and they put a link to your site then hey presto, you have got yourself another incoming link!

It is within reach of most people to attain these backlinks but one thing you should bear in mind is that it's best to get links from other sites that are relevant to your website. An example would be if you site is about making dolls, get links from other making dolls sites, because search engines love meaningful content. So every inbound link that comes from a similar site will be more effective. Relevant backlinks do a lot more to boost up your search engine rankings.

If you work hard at it you can dominate the search engines for most key words, obviously there are some keywords with extremely high competition already but there are plenty that you can rank well for. The sites with the most incoming links usually win the game, so if you want to outrank your friend, make more incoming links then they have and given that your content is relevant to your chosen keyword, one would assume you would outrank.

Overall it's not too complicated is it? It's vital that you are consistent, Google especially gets excited when it sees links appearing often to your site, Google will take a high interest in you and so will give you better exposure. If you create some links and then bring to a standstill Google looses interest and you never want that!

A labourious process it is to get links from other sites and it can also be a long and arduous process to get your content into the relevant places, Hours I have spent doing this before, it's not pleasant! So really what we need is an automated solution where we can do the work once and then just forget about it and know that our links will be built for us. Even better if the work can be done for us and we don't have to lift a finger!

I have been using a tool to do this for me for the last 6 months or so and it has built me hundreds of incoming links The result of this has been high traffic levels and high sales, which keeps things ticking over nicely!

Link building will surely have a very conclusive effect on your internet organization so I highly suggest them to you!
