What’s the key to building backlinks to your blog? If you’re a serious blogger, like I am, you’ve probably heard of SEO..which is basically getting your blog to rank high in the Google search results. This in turn will bring you lots of FREE traffic to your blog. More traffic basically means more money, too.
Why you should focus on building backlinks
Backlinks are like “votes” for your blog, in Google’s eyes. To put it simply, the more links from other sites that point to your blog, the higher your blog will rank in Google. And that means more exposure for you! Building backlinks is much more important for ranking in Google, than on-page optimization (putting keywords in your blog posts). You need to focus on getting as many backlinks as you can.
Building backlinks the right way
There is a right, and wrong way to build backlinks. The wrong way is to go out and get as many as you can in one day, spammy style. Google hates this because it screams out “I’m trying to cheat my way to the top of Google!”. This is bad. It used to work fairly good, but since the Panda update that just doesn’t work anymore.
The right way to building backlinks is to MAKE IT LOOK NATURAL! Yep…slow and steady wins the race. You need to build them at a slow pace, starting out at 1 or 2 a day, and gradually increasing that number.
But also you need to make the anchor text of the links look natural. That means, don’t make every single link back to your blog say “seo blog” exactly like that. You want to make each link different…this really looks more natural to Google. You could switch it up with “check out my seo blog” or “this seo blog” etc.
Also don’t forget to switch up the link sources..you can get some links from blog comments, some from social media, some from social bookmarking, some from ezine articles, etc. The whole key to SEO now, since the Panda update, is to make everything, especially your content, look as natural as possible! Building backlinks can be fun, and when you do it right can bring you hoardes of free traffic.
