Backlinks & Technical SEO
Why Are Backlinks Important?
Search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo are looking for signals that your website is a trusted resource of knowledge. One of the best ways to prove this is to have other trusted websites link out to your content. But you can’t just get your link on any website you like – you need a strategy to secure multiple placements over a wide network of trusted websites.
Backlinks to your website are especially valuable for SEO because they communicate to search engines that others find your content credible. Search engines don’t just look at the content of the page – they also look at the number of links pointing to your page from external websites as well as the quality of those external websites. Typically, the higher the quality of sites that link to you, the more likely you are to rank well in search results.
After search engines crawl the pages of your website, they extract the content of your pages and add it to their indexes. So, it’s important to identify what keywords you need to rank for and intelligently use the correct anchor text and content in your outreach to third party websites.
