Link Building Tactics
Why Is link building important?
Quite simply, links are important for SEO because they show that your site is important and Google ranks important sites higher than those that are not. Links make your site “important’ because they show that other resources are referring to you, by linking to you. The higher quality of the referring source, the more important or authoritative you must be. Also the more referrals you get, the more important or authoritative you must be. Having lots of high-value links back to your site therefore, gives Google large signals that you are a quality-resource that others refer to often, so you would be a great source to rank highly in their search results.
Context Behind Link Building
Building links from authoritative sources, like large national news brands, is challenging, and so people naturally opt for a more achievable or strategy, of obtaining links from where they can which are lower-authority sites. This does not necessarily mean a bad site, just maybe its a small business, smaller publication, or just a new site linking to you. However, in the past many took advantage of (and still try to) the strategy of building links for quantity alone and not quality. Google has implemented many algorithm updates to stop the effectiveness of these link building attempts. At crazy extents, you can be penalized for building extremely high-scale links of any sort. However, your poor link strategies in today’s world most likely won’t get you penalized, your efforts will just bear no fruit.
Because of Google’s efforts to stop spammy link building efforts, many have argued that link building at all is a waste of time. For example, you could get flagged with unnatural link building efforts for having backlinks from only high-quality sources. Some say that linkbuilding is a waste of time because you can rank with out them. And you might be able to rank without any link building efforts, but for what keywords, against who, and ending up in what position? Backlink signals are still a major ranking factor for Google, those ranking above you in your target queries are definitely utilizing a link building strategy of some sort. Send us a keyword, and we’ll let you know if the top 10 results are using link building.
