What is a BackLink?
First of all, if you’re new to search engine optimization, lets cover what a back link is, and how it helps with SEO for your website. Backlinks, also known as one-way links, incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, and inward links, are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website, or top level domain) from another web node. Inbound links were originally important (prior to the emergence of search engines) as a primary means of web navigation; today, their significance lies in search engine optimization(SEO). The number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page (for example, this is used by Google to determine the PageRank of a webpage). Outside of SEO, the backlinks of a webpage may be of significant personal, cultural or semantic interest: they indicate who is paying attention to that page. Now with that being out of the way, there is no doubt that building backlinks to your blog or (replicated) website is the best way to improve your website’s search engine optimization and gain traffic. There are a number of ways to get quality backlinks and one of the most practiced but least understood ways is the practice of leaving comments on blogs. There are automated ways to get one way back links as well, but leaving “human-based” written comments is one of the best ways to make sure you get the quality one-way back links on the sites you want them to be on. If done the right way, posting comments on blog posts is a great way to get high quality targeted links to your website. Most of us believe that to be true. Just about all blogs allow you to include a link to your website in the comment form thus giving you a backlink. A habit of mine is to, after installing the Alexa (a must do item) toolbar on my computer, after a see an article I like, and the Alexa rating is 1.5 Million or lower, is to leave a comment after I’ve read the article.
BackLink Tip 1. Never forget to put your website link in!
Maybe an open door, but I noticed on many websites, many people leave comments without their link. A waste of time…if you’re trying to increase your website traffic.
Fill the – LEAVE A COMMENT BOX – in like this:
BackLink Tip 2. Be positive!
Positive comments perform about 10 times better than negative comments. Just as in “The Secret”, what we give out comes back to us ten fold. As my Dad used to say, “If you can’t say something nice, it’s better not to say anything”.
BackLink Tip 3. Do not be a spammer
A big thing to keep in mind is to make sure you do not appear as a spammer. This is because most likely your comment will be deleted along with your time, effort and link. I mentioned earlier that there are other ways to get automated back links, but automated back links can appear spammy. When leaving a comment make sure it is relevant and offers something productive. This will ensure your comment sticks thus ensuring your back link does as well.
BackLink Tip 4. Leave a lengthy comment
Also don’t be afraid of leaving a lengthy comment that has your key word or phase lightly sprinkled though out it. I have on more than one occasion found that one of my comments have turned up in the search results. This doesn’t necessarily increase the value of your link but does increase your links exposure to more potential visitors. If you sell weight loss products, you might say, as an example, “I market Visalus Shakes as a weight loss solution, and this article explains how I should promote weight loss, instead of solely the Visalus product. Thanks for the tip.”
Back Link Tip 5. Find “High Authority” website‘s
It may seem that all you have to do is leave some great comments and include your link and presto you have hundreds of backlinks. Not true. The reason is you must be selective on which blogs you leave comments on. High authority websites are websites that are trusted by Google. Good back-links to your website from High Authority websites are crucial if you want to get high search engine rankings and traffic. In the Direct Selling world www.businessforhome.org is a good example of such a website as www.networkingpro.com.
BackLink Tip 6. Do not place your link in the comment box!
Never place your link in the comment box, only in the Website field (see above picture). If you place your link in the comment box, anti-spam software will block your comment.
BackLink Tip 7. Comment often
Without spamming, comment often until you make the list of top commentors. This is excellent because your link will appear on the front page of the blog which is normally the highest ranking page meaning a lot more weight is given to that backlink. The bonus is that the top commentors list is in the sidebar which is shown on every page of the blog thus giving you potentially hundreds of backlinks. Find a couple of these in your niche and you are golden my friend! I have found that most times I only need to leave about five to seven comments to make the list. These blogs are your money makers so you should visit and comment often. You will be amazed at the amount of traffic these blogs will generate for you as well as increase your rankings in the search engines. This is crucial To Make Money On-Line Fast.
