Default What are backlinks and why they are needed?

If you have learned SEO, or read about it somewhere, you have come through term "backlink" at least once it's for sure! Backlinks are having vital meaning for good SEO score for your web sites or blogs. Backlinks are the links that are directed to your web site.

Backlinks are very important for your SEO, especially because some search engines (specially Google), gives more points to web sites which have higher number of quality backlinks. This gives you better positions in search engines, and may enhance your traffic massively. Once most of current search engines scrutinizes your web site, they calculate the relevance of a site to a keyword, they also count the amount of quality inbound (backlinks) links to that web site.

If you got in touch with the SEO world, you would have come across the word "backlinks" zillion of times. For those who is a newcomer to the SEO fields, you might guess what backlinks are and what they means for the success of websites. In couple of words, a Backlink indicates a link from another site to your website. These are also called as inbound links and their variety shows the popularity of the website. Backlinks are considered as web elections from voters: search engines, more the bulletins are collected (backlinks) on behalf of your website, more is assignment as a trust one.

Also, from the long term point of view, it will help in boosting quality traffic to your site. Besides of this, building of backlinks is the bottom-line of website visibility by improving your page ranking and ultimately your ranking in the search engines. It is not just enough to have lots of backlinks, but, it's also the quality of backlinks that helps in receiving a better ratings in search engines. When counting on the relevance of a website to a certain keyword, search engines usually take into consideration the number of quality backlinks to that website. Search engines like Google give a lot of importance to websites that contain more number of quality backlinks and also consider those websites as more relevant when compared to others in search results.

When a site is new ,that time we build links to the site through directory submission,article posting etc.these links are useful to get the website crawled.


So backlinks are important for a website.

Backlinks is the backbone for the website. Build backlinks with dofollow links will boost your keywords in the search result.

If you want the keywords to perform well in the Search result then you have to build backlinks.

A search engine considers the content of the sites to determine the QUALITY of a link. When inbound links to your site come from other sites, and those sites have content related to your site, these inbound links are considered more relevant to your site. If inbound links are found on sites with unrelated content, they are considered less relevant. The higher the relevance of inbound links, the greater their quality.

For example, if a webmaster has a website about how to rescue orphaned kittens, and received a backlink from another website about kittens, then that would be more relevant in a search engine's assessment than say a link from a site about car racing. The more relevant the site is that is linking back to your website, the better the quality of the backlink.

Search engines want websites to have a level playing field, and look for natural links built slowly over time. While it is fairly easy to manipulate links on a web page to try to achieve a higher ranking, it is a lot harder to influence a search engine with external backlinks from other websites. This is also a reason why backlinks factor in so highly into a search engine's algorithm. Lately, however, a search engine's criteria for quality inbound links has gotten even tougher, thanks to unscrupulous webmasters trying to achieve these inbound links by deceptive or sneaky techniques, such as with hidden links, or automatically generated pages whose sole purpose is to provide inbound links to websites. These pages are called link farms, and they are not only disregarded by search engines, but linking to a link farm could get your site banned entirely.

Another reason to achieve quality backlinks is to entice visitors to come to your website. You can't build a website, and then expect that people will find your website without pointing the way. You will probably have to get the word out there about your site. One way webmasters got the word out used to be through reciprocal linking. Let's talk about reciprocal linking for a moment. tyfinc.com

Getting many backlinks is very important.

To get backlinks I post to article directories like ideamarkerters.com or smuze.com, and to pr sites like prweb.com.

Also if you have the money Yahoo directory is good
