No matter how you reframe it, the impact of backlinks on web ranking on the Search Engine Result Pages (SERP) can never be overemphasized.

Over the years, Backlink has come under a series of contradictory speculations among the SEO experts regarding its relevance in modern SEO practices.

Nevertheless, of all the Google ranking factors, backlinks remain significant to date. Even Google says it considers incoming links as a โ€œvote of confidenceโ€ from one site to another.

It’s, therefore, apparent that ranking any website on the first page of ‘SERP’ requires a smart link-building strategy to win Search Engine’s heart.

Backlinks are external links from other websites that point to your site and they’re essential for any SEO campaign.

In this article, I’ll discuss why backlinks are important for ranking higher in Google and what steps you should take to generate quality backlinks.

What is a Backlink?

A backlink is a mention of your website on another site. When someone links to your site, they’re essentially telling Google that they think your page is worth showing to searchers.

Google takes into account the number and quality of backlinks it finds when determining how high your site ranks in search results.

The more backlinks you have pointing to your site, the better chance you’ll have of ranking higher in search engine results pages.

First and foremost, Google views backlinks as a measure of relevance.

If your site is linked to other sites that are relevant to yours, how can your site not be relevant? Google also recognizes backlinks as an indication of popularity because it’s unlikely to see links from many different websites on the same topic if the topic isn’t popular.

For example, a single link from a website about real estate would most likely indicate that real estate is an unpopular topic for website owners.

In terms of ranking higher in search engine results pages, Google does place more value on links from websites with high relevance and authority. The higher authority a site has, the more weight its backlinks carry with Google.

However, don’t think you need to get all of your backlinks from high-authority sites. You can start building up your rankings by getting backlinks from smaller sites like blogs or even YouTube channels that have much lower authority than say Forbes or New York Times but still have good relevance to your industry.

It may take a little more time but these will help you build up trust with Google over time and add more relevance and authority to your site in the long run.

How Do I Get Quality Backlinks?

If you want quality backlinks, you’ll need to utilize tactics that are more sophisticated than simply posting links on your site or forum.

Quality backlinks typically come from other websites and they’re usually “no-follow” links. To generate these types of links, you’ll need to reach out to other sites with a similar audience and ask them to link to yours.

For example, if you’re running an E-Commerce company in Nigeria, it would be wise to try and get a link from an E-Commerce website in Nigeria rather than one in Ghana or South Africa.

This approach will yield better results because people are more likely to trust relevant sites. It also makes your job easier because there’s no need for outreach when someone else has already agreed to publish a link on their site.

Just remember that not all backlinks are created equal! You should avoid any tactics that result in low-quality backlinks as this will harm your ranking potential. Low-quality backlinks may include:

* Spammy comments

* Links embedded in irrelevant content

* Link requests sent on social media platforms like LinkedIn

The best way is to cultivate relationships with other people and businesses who share a common interest with you and then ask them politely if they’d like to link to your site as well.

Why do we build links?

To be honest, there are 2 main reasons we build links (out of other reasons)
1. To build trust
2. To boost your articles to page 1 on Google.

In other words, links are built to support competitive keywords to climb up to page 1.

To rank on Google, PAGE AUTHORITY plays an important role, and when you build links to increase your Domain Authority, your page Authority also increases.

Too hard to understand? Let me break it down.

โ€ขโ€ขโ€ขIf you have 50 articles on your 0-DA site, the chance of getting them to rank is slim BECAUSE the page authority will likely be 1.

And even if they rank, as time goes on, you will probably lose the competition when more blogs get to know about the keyword.

โ€ขโ€ขโ€ขNow, to keep my articles I need to build links to them one after the other (I mean I need to build links to all 50 pages)

โ€ขโ€ขโ€ขTo avoid the stress, you can alternatively build links to your ROOT DOMAIN which automatically increase the page authority of ALL your single-page articles

My website for instance has 50DA, by default, all my posts will have a minimum of 25-page authority. So even if I create a post today, it will rank without backlinks.

Backlinks are BEST when it is created for MONEY KEYWORDS (affiliate product review)

In fact, you should only build links to articles that contain affiliate links. Quality Backlinks.

By Quality Backlinks, I mean through guest posts with good anchor text.

CONCLUSION

1. BUILD BACKLINKS TO RANK YOUR MONEY POST ON PAGE 1 OF GOOGLE.

2. AND BUILD BACKLINKS TO INCREASE YOUR SITE TRUST (Domain Authority)

The more website that links to you, the more the trust signal is sent to Google and the more your article will rank.

Next, I’ll talk about anchor text. Why it plays an important role in link building and how to use it in your guest post…

The more backlinks you have pointing to your website, the higher your website will rank in the search engines.

To generate quality backlinks for your website, you need to create content that is of value to the people looking at it.

Accumulating backlinks through social media and blogging are two ways of doing this.
