Advantages of Quality Backlinks

Backlinks are incoming links which you get from other websites to promote your site or blog. They are also termed as referrers or do-follow links or inbound links. Getting quality backlinks are important for two reasons, firstly these can gauge the kind of respect and eminence you have earned over the internet and secondly these help you to a great extent in improving your site rankings over popular search engines. So the higher the quality of your backlinks the more visible you become over the search engines. Conversely, if you have disreputable backlinks or do not have any, then your credibility over the internet is at stake. You simply have to put efforts to secure quality backlinks to enjoy a couple of benefits as discussed below.

Improves your search engine rankings

The moment you create your website it simply starts with zero backlinks and hence cannot be seen over different search engines. However, if you start building up backlinks consistently for a couple of months you can see your site getting indexed by the popular search engines which certainly improves your site rankings. If you want to outrank your rivals’ sites, try getting more number of quality links than them.

It generates traffic

If you get a backlink from any site or blog which gets thousands of visitors every day some of these people could be redirected towards your website. If your website is seen in the first page one of the Google or any other search engine results it will receive much better traffic than if it comes over the second or third page of the search engines. By having quality links, you can certainly remain at the page one of the Google search results which mean better chance to generate good traffic, not the location based traffic.

You are recognized as an authority in your niche area

Having quality backlinks means you increase the popularity of your website in your niche area. Hence the webmasters or site owners looking out for backlinks prefer to link with your site as you are an established name in your domain. This means you get a chance to network with people of your common interest or subject thus expanding your contacts and public relations. For example if your website is all about agriculture farming products it can easily become the ‘go to’ site for anything relevant to your niche area.

You generate sales or add new subscribers

The increase in traffic at your website would simply amplify the chance of sales generation for business sites or add some new subscribers for the non commercial places. This is why you need to start getting quality backlinks campaign by trying different methods to achieve them as this will certainly increase the quantity of sales and subscription.

You can sell advertising

Once your site or blog gets high rankings and pulls in tangible amount of traffic you start getting good offers from different website owners. This could come in different forms including a banner or a link. The banner will help you to promote your business whereas a link can redirect you a number of visitors to your website which will keep on improving your site rankings further. However, while accepting any banner ad offer prefer getting the ones which are related to your niche area.

Gaining quality backlinks cannot be ignored considering the number of benefits as discussed above. If you are looking out to enjoy these benefits, then having quality backlinks are a must for you. Hence you need to start your efforts in getting quality backlinks in order to enjoy the above listed benefits.

My backlinks continue to grow. In fact my stats are showing 300+, not even sure that is a large amount. My site was ranked 4, but yesterday I noticed it dropped to a 3... wondering if it was because the new Google algorithm?

But I have to tell you Claudia this is one area of my business (backlinks) I truly don't get. I know how important they are in getting a site ranked higher, among other things. But knowing a good backlink or how to get those backlinks has been a confusing part for me.

There was Google PR update, but probably you are right in the last 2 months there were more than 90 changes in Google algorithms and major new update called "Penguin". Link evaluation is pretty much difficult, but the best way for link building is to get the same backlinks as top competitors. The other thing is no to limit yourself only to "high quality" links, but diversify link building strategy as much as possible.

Sorry, I meant excellent information. I would really like to learn how to get links to my own blog. Perhaps that's something I should start researching.
