Friend, If you are interested in SEO (search engine optimization) and ranking high for certain keywords (on search engines) for your blog (or any website for the matter), you better get used to seeing the term backlinks.
Why is that you wonder?
Because obtaining backlinks is the most important factor for SEO.
That’s right, it’s the number 1 factor for ranking your blog articles high on search engines. Whatever you search on Google, all of the results you see on the first page will be of websites that have plenty of backlinks.
Do you want to join the party and rank your website high for many keywords?
You must obtain backlinks!
Make no mistake about it, on-page SEO (content quality, content length, and keyword optimization) is very important, but you must optimize both on-page SEO and off-page SEO (acquire backlinks) to rank your articles on the first page of Google.
And friends, that’s whats important, that’s where the money is at!
See the image above? Only 25% of users ever click past the first page! This is why you must aim to rank on the first page, the higher the better.
What Are Backlinks?
Backlinks are links on other websites that point back to your website.
An external website will create backlinks by inserting your URL in some keyword/keywords, which is called an anchor text.
Backlinks can be internal, meaning placing a link on one part of your website that points to another.
For example, check out how to start a blog, is a backlink I just created and “check out how to start a blog,” is the anchor text.
When acquiring backlinks you must be sure to have varied anchor text and not just a bunch of backlinks that have the keywords you are trying to rank high on Google for how to get backlinks.
You must be careful because with Google’s newest update they severely cracked down on over-optimization.
Up until recently bloggers were easily manipulating their rankings by creating huge quantities of backlinks using only their target keywords for their anchor text.
Do that now and you can be sure that Google will slap you with a penalty, and you can say bye bye to any dreams you had of ranking high.
You have to have a natural looking anchor text profile.
When acquiring backlinks try to aim an anchor text profile like the image above, it will look totally natural to Google.
Beware Of Spammy Backlinks
Google has also really cracked down on spammy backlinks.
Getting spammy backlinks will land you a Google penalty even faster than over-optimizing your anchor texts.
In the past webmasters were gaming the system by purchasing 1000s and 1000s of links for dirt cheap (spammy links), in order to achieve great rankings.
That all changed, you see in the past Google was not as advanced so acquiring even backlinks worked. Google valued quantity over quality.
Now Google’s software algorithm is much more advanced and it can detect unnatural spammy links easily. Now it values quality backlinks over quantity.
Spammy backlinks are backlinks from websites that have way too many backlinks (outbound links) and that have too many unrelated backlinks.
An example is a web-page containing only content about how to lose fat, places a backlink to your article which is about managing finances. This is a scenario that could lead you to be flagged by Google.
The point of backlinks and why they are so important for SEO, is because they are supposed to improve the users experience by accurately leading people to the content they are searching for.
Google wants it’s search engine to be highly accurate and for people to find the best quality information easily, so they don’t take spammy manipulation lightly, aka a penalty.
Remember, say no to spammy links!
Aim To Obtain High Quality Backlinks
Acquiring 1 high quality backlink can be equivalent of obtaining 1000s of low quality backlinks (not including spammy links which you should have a zero tolerance for).
So what constitutes as high quality?
A website that Google views as high authority. These are the links you really should focus on obtaining.
These highly authoritative websites usually have been around for many years and have built up an authoritative reputation in their respected field. These type of websites have gained the trust of Google so Google rewards them with visibility (rankings).
Obtaining even one backlink from a very high authority site can rank you on the first page of Google (for mildly competitive keywords).
Most important factors in determining quality:
- Domain authority
- Page authority
- Trust Flow
- Citation Flow
- Amount of keywords ranked
As long as a backlink is not spammy, I would say domain authority and page authority are the top two most import metrics when determining the quality and positive impact that a link would have for you.
The other metrics are added bonuses.
How To Investigate Backlinks
Don’t worry guys, investigating the quality of a backlink is not as complicated as it sounds.
You can find many sources that check all the metrics that I have listed above.
I personally use two different sources, the first one I use is Moz.
They are one of the most authoritative sources when it comes to SEO and backlinks.
They are very accurate and in fact you have to register for Moz Pro and pay about $200 a month to use their link-explorer feature.
But as I mentioned in my article The 2 Most Important Factors For Blogging Success, you can use their pro feature by using the 30-day free trial loophole.
You can keep creating new Moz Pro accounts and keep using their link-explorer for free, month after month!
I love using Moz Pro to determine how spammy a link is, this way I never have to worry about getting penalized by Google.
The other source I use is Checkpagerank.net.
It is totally free and you don’y have to register for any account and I use them to check the trust and citation strength of a backlink.
You don’t have to go as in-dept as I do when investigating a website or web-page. Just focus on DA (domain authority), PA (page authority), and spam score and you’ll be okay.
It makes sense to check the other metrics if you are comparing backlinks to determine which one to purchase.
Keep in mind, any DA or PA over 30 is good, any over 50 is really good, and any over 70 is amazing.
DoFollow & NoFollow Backlinks
Backlinks can be either doFollow or noFollow, and the distinction is very important.
DoFollow backlinks are links that give Google (and all search engines) permission to follow the linked URL. DoFollow links effect rankings.
NoFollow backlinks are links that don’t give Google (and all search engines) permission to follow the linked URL. DoFollow links don’t effect rankings.
Just remember, doFollow does count for search engine rankings and noFollow doesn’t count for search engine rankings.
Even though noFollow backlinks don’t effect rankings, you should acquire both types of links. You should do this in order to keep your backlink profile looking natural.
Remember, looking natural will keep the Google police away.
How to verify if a backlink is either doFollow or NoFollow:
As a general rule of thumb, if a link can be placed in text like this it’s a doFollow. If it can’t (like most commenting sections of articles) it’s a noFollow.
If you want to be certain use Codeduck. It’s free, just place the link you want to check in the search bar and click search to analyze it!
How To Acquire Backlinks
There are so many different ways to obtain backlinks. So many that I’m not going to get into extreme detail here in this article.
But I am going to tell you the best way to get backlinks, and that is to purchase them.
Throughout the web you will come to learn that the phrase “purchasing backlinks” is dirty.
That it is frowned upon and that Google will know and penalized you if you buy them.
This is pure bullshit folks. Almost everyone buys them, and all the big players with big online businesses are definitely buying them.
That’s why popular backlink providers such as The Hoth are thriving, have been thriving, and will continue to thrive.
Because it works for SEO! The key is to buy high quality backlinks.
Buying high quality backlinks is the best way to optimize off-page SEO and improve your website’s visibility.
If you own a blog or a dropshipping business or are thinking about starting a blog or dropshipping business (the best online businesses to start in my opinion), I highly highly recommend you work on acquiring backlinks. It will transform your business!
Don’t listen to silly bullshit advice, advice such as “acquire backlinks online by reaching out to bloggers and ask to guest post” or “visit blogs and find 404 pages (missing pages) and contact the blog asking for a backlink as a favor for pointing out 404 pages“.
Yes the above methods work and guest posting is good, but it’s good for putting your name out there, for recognition, not for the sole purpose of getting links that point back to your website.
Obtaining links by guest posting is a tedious process.
It will take weeks just to get one backlink, and that is if your guest post is approved.
Don’t believe me? Fine, listen to the competition and go ahead and do it “the natural way.” You are going to be left behind in the dust.
Oh and did you know when you purchase backlinks from a quality reputable source your backlinks would be just as natural as backlinks from guest posts? It’s true.
You see, high quality backlink providers purchase many high quality domains and create backlinks by creating guest posts for people who want backlinks.
Search engines such as Google will never be able to tell that you purchased a high quality backlink because there is no difference (apart from the purchasing) from a high quality purchased link and obtaining the link “naturally.”
Purchasing them has done wonders for my blog Only Freedom Matters.
I started purchasing backlinks from the get-go, and my domain authority is went from 0 to 28 in just 6 month (more like 4 months because it takes Google up to 2 months to recognize them).
Friends, and more importantly check out how many ranking keywords I have, 227.
It normally (without buying links) take most websites many many years to reach the domain authority and page authority (34) that I have. Trust me as I have analyzed many websites using Moz.
I hope now you understand the power of acquiring backlinks, it can transform your online presence.
Where Can I Buy High Quality Backlinks?
There are quite a few reputable sources, The Hoth as I mentioned earlier is a quality source for backlinks.
Another is Link Laboratory.
If you are searching for more sources please do your due diligence to make sure you are not acquiring spammy links that could hurt your rankings instead of improving them.
But I got some bad news…high quality backlinks can be pricey as f*** and the sources I mentioned are known for having reasonable rates.
Expect to pay anywhere from $50 to even $500 for one high quality link. I’m not exaggerating, if you don’t believe me then go check out their rates.
Hey, but there is no reason to stress about how ridiculous expensive it is to buy quality links. My team and I are here to the rescue!
There is no reason to pay $50 per backlink, so don’t let these backlink providers take advantage of you!
