Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the most important feature that enables improved website visibility and recognition online. Without it, you might as well stand on the street and yell at people to check out your website. However, SEO is a strategy that needs to be implemented the right way in order for it to provide the best results.
When it comes to link building, one should focus on two of the most important factors: the quantity and quality of the backlinks which were built for your website. Analyzing the quantity of your backlinks is easy – all you need to do is count the links that were built for your site. How about the quality of your backlinks? Remember that while some links have immediate results, some might take time. There are a lot of criteria that anchors Google rankings; some of them are the domain authority of the website linking back to yours, the quality of the content, and the traffic your link is getting.
Let me tell you a story about how I learned SEO. The first disclaimer is this- I didn’t really intend to learn any of it. See, when you’re fifteen and all your friends care about is to be ‘in’ at school, learning a topic that involves ‘algorithms’ and ‘spiders’ will be the last thing on your mind.
I learned SEO though because I realized that my passion for blogging requires me to do so. I mean, it’s not fun at all blogging without readers right? And when you basically have no online social circle yet, the first thing you rely on is some exposure from search engine traffic.
Welcome to the world of SEO.
