What are Backlinks and how do they work?

Now, I’m going to teach you what backlinks are and how they work.

The more links that your website has, the higher you are going to rank. In addition to that, Google is looking at quality.

Another thing that Google’s using within their algorithm is how related is that link?

Google will be looking at how you are doing backlinks. How many backlinks are you getting over time? One thing you must know that Google wants you to get backlinks naturally. They do not want you to just pay people to link to your website. They do not like that, you shouldn’t pay for getting links. Google will be looking at how related those websites are; and they are looking at something called domain authority. That is how authoritative that website is. Therefore, make sure you are getting them from related websites and they must have high domain authority.

A domain authority is being like a Google.com, YouTube, Facebook. So, if you want to get a lot of backlinks for your website, you should be able to get them from relevant sites, and you need to get them from authoritative sites that have high domain authority. Certainly, your rankings are going to climb.

One more thing that you need to know is that trap link building has changed drastically over the years. It used to just be building as many links as possible, but now it is all about building quality links and building natural links.

If you are going out to websites to build links and it is not a natural link back to good content, then it is really not going to help you. It is actually going to hurt you in the long run.

Note: You should build one or two backlinks a day maximum. You cannot do the ten links or so in one day.
