Backlinks and you

By October 5, 2009 Bloggership

Many did not know that backlinks is very important to a website. It was important because the more backlinks that you have the higher your page rank will be. When your page rank increase, then  your website will be more important to google and maybe for other search engine and thus created more traffic to your site.

Since google is the number 1 search engine in the world, so this whole article is only in google point of view. And I guess, some of the search engine out there has google style of page ranking too. So it wll be a double earn for you.

Back to the topic, after knowing backlinks is so important, so what type of backlinks that will take google’s attention the most? There exist 2 types of backlinks in which it is a both sided links or a single sided links. Both sided means, I have your link in my website and you have my line in your website. While the single side link is having link only on one site. Which is usually can be seen when you are commenting someone’s blog  and you leave your url there. Or also can be seen when you submit your link to a directory.

In both type of backlinks, google would have preferred the single side link. The reason for this is to make the search database better. Because, there exist tons of reciprocal link script which helps user to get backlinks witout much effort and will help users to get backlinks in no time. This is also on some point is called backlink harvest. When a script like this exist, the search database is polluted with low quality websites and thus will means low search quality for google. This will then causes the user of google search to decrese if there is no measure taken.

So google decided that, they will only take attention on a site with single sided backlinks. When this occur, those with single sided backlinks will have their page rank increase and thus gives them higher traffic which came from the search engine itself. So with this, google could actually lowered the low quality search and thus make sure that the users of google search engine will not run to other places such as yahoo search or bing!.

But how do you make a single sided backlinks?  One step which is the most basic for this is, commenting on other people’s blog. The more you comment, the more you leave your url then the more you will get a backlinks to your site. This was a powerful way for you to increase your page rank. Since when you are commenting to other people’s blog, you will get more people of that blog to read your comment. So don’t you think it is like drinking while swimming? Where you could get the readers of the site to come to your site and get your site a better coverage from google search engine.

Another step that you could take is submitting your site to a social bookmarking site such as technorati’s or digg. When you submitted your site there, it is almost like you commenting a post. But with this, you get your post ranked by them too. The higher your post ranked, the more popular is your post and more readers will read it thus you will get more people to your site. With this,  it will double your traffic faster than you could get in commenting other people’s blog.

One other way to get backlinks is by posting a high quality post and being the first to write it out. With that, other people will cite your post and you will have backlinks if they left the sources where they get the information from. With this you are able to get backlinks without commenting people’s blog. But doing this is not really a simple task because the topic that you will need to talk about is hard to find. If there exist a topic that no one ever talk about maybe it is a new invention or maybe the niche is so unpopular that no one ever interested to talk about it.

So getting more backlinks in your site will give your site a better performance in google search. With this, more traffic will go to your site. So work hard on it while working on your post too.

    Nice looking blog, might I ask you what template you are using and how much it costs? I have been using cheap ones but cannot find one that I really like.

    You can get free theme from .. Google give you the ability to get into the best website that could provide you free template. By the way, about my template, I was using some artisteer tools given by a friend of mine. It is a good software to create website template for wordpress, joomla and drupal. And it will cost you USD99 if i’m not wrong (Since the price is for the version 1 price.)

    Hi just stumbled your site and i thank you for your article it was informative. I am curious about link building for my website too. Have you used the program? If so is it good? If not then what is the best program? Thank you.

    No, I prefer doing a manual backlink rather auto BL. Auto Backlink will make it easy for you to get more backlinks in one night but sometimes you might be considered as a spam. For example like me, I’ve been getting many spam that I suspect came from software like scrapebox and other autocomment software too and the topic really does not match with what they commented and so I make it as spam. Since I am also using spam blocker, it will send data to spam blocker website as to enhance it’s database and thus if there is 100 of thousands using the same spam blocker, the person might be considered as spam too. Thats why most people said it’s hardwork that make your blog popular. So rather than taking the risk of using the software why not just use manual way and you can get more ideas on what to write too.

    By the way, the blog submission is not bad to get backlinks. So software such as from scrapebox is useful for you to get your blog submitted too. But I think there is a cheaper and free software out there that help you to submit your blog.
