How to add back links for your website.
Back links are important for your website in terms of SEO. A Backlink simply is an incoming hyperlink from one web page to another website. Backlinks are links that are directed towards your website.
WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT? The number of back links a website has is a good indicator of its popularity or importance with search engines. If your website or business is active AND customer are engaging, Google sees that website as having possibly a good reputation as well as more relevant in a search query.
- Be a guest writer/blogger. Submit content to various local and national media sites.It’s great for your business : it gets your name and product out to different viewers. At the same time, it’s great for the folks at media outlets. Many of them like to publish a diversity of voices and opinions on their site — not to mention more articles means more indexed pages, which can be great for a site’s SEO. As a guest blogger, work a link back to your site into the article.
- Create citations and listings on business directory sites: and do not forget local directories! Most of these sites provide a free basic listing; just make sure you add your website URL. You will probably notice a company called YEXT as your add your site to directories. Personally, I stay away from them. They will claim your listings are not accurate or “missing” and they can fix it. First of all, I notice that what they claim about my listings are not true (I have gone and check those directories that Yext claims is missing, etc) Second, after you sign up, they will purposely make mistakes, so you will have to pay them to fix your business information on sites. Does Yext work? Some claim so and others say they are a scam. I personally do not want to put my company’s SEO in their hands, especially if I decide to discontinue their service. I would rather do SEO myself or hire a good local company (hey, that’s me! ). You make your own call :). Citations can be done for free and work well if you put in the time.
- Write compelling, unique, and shareable content. This information is found on my last week’s post: https://www.growmybusinessfast.com/content-marketing-tips-for-2017-2018/
- Add social sharing tools to your own content so it makes it easy for people to share the valuable content that you create. Make sure their are Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc buttons on your website 🙂
