What is a Backlink?
Backlinks or back-links are incoming links to a website or web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page (though other measures, such as PageRank, are likely to be more important). Outside of SEO, the backlinks of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page.
The quality of each backlink can be partly judged by the popularity of the page from which it originates. A page that owns few backlinks itself is not going to have a lot of traffic. And any page that has links to illegal material may actually decrease your page ranking. You can oversee number of backlinks by searching on GoogleÂ® with the search terms link: and then your website.
There are many ways to increase your backlink numbers. You can contact related sites, and ask them to link to you, and you can offer reciprocal linking. Another common practice is called link threading. By example:
– You can get your first Backlink just writing about your website and submit it to About Us wiki Page.
– Write comments on other Blogs or post in Forums, and link to your web site. Do not hidde links, it could be consider spamming.
