The outline of this Link Building Strategies tutorial will comprise of the following:
- As we start with the link building tutorial series, I’d like to first clarify for those who don’t already know: “what the heck is link building”?
- Now that we’ve reviewed what the heck link building is all about, we next move on to its importance. Why do we need to do linkbuilding? What are its immediate and direct effects on your website Search engine results page rankings?
- Now that we’ve covered the importance of link building, we move on to the next question that most people and webmasters alike have in mind. Are all links treated equally?
- All links come from somewhere. Links have to be from a website to a website. Inbound links are links from another website to yours. We’ve already established the importance of having quality inbound links from quality websites but just what are the attributes of a quality website?
- We’ve talked about link building theories and do’s and don’ts – now we’ll start talking about the dirty work. Just how do you do link building? There are two ways you can do it: Organic and Artificial.
- The first type of link building is called organic link building. This type of link building deals with anything that doesn’t have to do with automated systems and/or practices that are frowned upon by Google and the SEO community.
- Artificial link building isn’t altogether bad but some people exploit automated means to the point of redundantly abusing it until they are regarded as spam. And as such, some of these practices are generally frowned upon by the SEO community at large.
- I’m sure you’ve heard this before – link exchange. Ever had an email asking you to exchange links with them – Giving you the “You scratch my back, I scratch yours” kind of a deal?
