What is a backlink

Postby » Laura » July 19th, 2012, 7:37 pm | #1 of 9 |

Hi,

Yes it might seem like a stupid question but what is exactly a backlink, and what is its utility?

Thanks for your help ;)

It's simply when someone links to your site from elsewhere, if you look at my signature there is a link to my blog - thats a backlink:)

If enough *important* sites link to your site from theirs, then Google starts to take notice, thinking that obviously you must be important too and it can improve your Google rankings considerably! Important sites are usually called authority sites - they would including anything ending in .gov or .edu and wiki sites amongst others:)

Well thank you. I will try that ;)

So does it count as a backlink when I post a comment on a big blog with a link pointing to my website (an interesting comment, I am not going to troll big websites to get a better ranking :D)

i just clicked your links so now it's 601 for MOC :D

blog comments count as backlinks, but then you get into the whole dofollow/nofollow debate lol - they don't pull as much weight as other links but every little counts :)

A keyword rich link from an outside page (with diverse domain or server) that refers aimed at your website are know while backlinks in web optimization. They are also called incoming links.

Backlinks tell serps, yahoo and bing how popular your blog is. All achnor texts are one of the form backlinks.

Natural backlinks tend to be more valuable to search engines like google than reciprocal links, as they are harder to acquire.

Backlinks are incoming links to a webpage. When a webpage links to any other page, it’s called a backlink. In the past, backlinks were the major metric for the ranking of a webpage. A page with a lot of backlinks tended to rank higher on all major search engines, including Google. This is still true to a large extent.

Backlinks are URLs placed on a webpage with the help of keywords hyperlinked to redirect traffic to your website. These backlinks are helpful to build keyword ranking and also generate traffic from them.
