What are Backlinks ?
Backlink is a link that one website gets from another website also called as “Incoming links”. Earlier these links play a major role to rank a website. Now a days i don’t know how much importance search engines give to these links but what i know is it’s one of the most important factor for ranking.
A – popular tech related website
B – new tech related website
When website A puts a link of website B in their blog post then its a backlink for website B. It’s a great achievement for website B because now they get visitors from website A which is a very popular website.
How to get backlinks ?
Submission to web directories and blog comments are outdated ways for backlinks. They are useless in 2019.
For backlinks i prefer guest blogging. Search for big and popular websites and kindly ask them for guest blog via mail. Or look in the menu because some of the popular websites already add guest blog page in their menu.
NOTE : Don’t buy backlinks, they are fake and low value links. Instead of improving rank, google may be penalize you for buying these links.
Types of backlinks
1. Nofollow Links : Doesn’t allow search engine bots to follow link. That means, if a website links back to you with nofollow attributes then only humans will be able to follow the links not the bots.
Google don’t consider or give importance to nofollow links.
2. Dofollow Links : Allow search engine bots to follow link. That means, both search engines and humans will be able to follow through the link.
That’s all, hope you understand what you are looking for and yes you can check your links for free by Ahref’s free backlink checker.
