Build High Quality Backlinks

Don't just "get" backlinks, build assets.

I know there is much talk about getting backlinks to improve your website ranking but suddenly you hear of folks loosing their page ranking due to having too many backlinks. Problem is they didn't use the good principles of building high quality backlinks but instead used the "easy button" to get those links. They posting their links in unrelated and low quality sites. Many used those free "add your link to a hundred site" services and are paying the price for that now with lost ranking in the search engines and lost traffic to their website.

It was like building sandcastles. One good wave and all was washed away, or in this case one wave of the Panda/Farmer magic wand and all those "easy button" backlinks didn't count anymore, and that's all they had holding their site ranking up. Sure it is still necessary to have backlinks to improve your link popularity but do it by building high quality backlinks pointing your site.

So what is the answer in building those high quality backlinks?

Build Assets.

This is what will give your site a solid foundation, and grow your sites reputation naturally over time. Same if you are building your business using blogs or other services. You may ask what I mean by building assets and how does that help build high quality backlinks to my site? If you are posting articles here on Street Articles then you are building assets. We're else to build assets?

  • Article Directories. Do a search for top article directories and submit articles to them also.
  • Social Networks. There are many other than Facebook and Twitter - Mixx, Riddit, Stumpleupon,, Tumblr are also good places
  • Check Linkedin. Great PR9 site. You can add 3 links in your profile page as a free member.Tweeting your articles will show on Linkedin also.
  • Build assets in Communities. Hubpages, Squidoo, Pinterest, some others including Ehow, Infobarrel, Suite101, etc.
  • Search the Web. See if you can find places that somewhat identify your niche. You may find some that allow your own personal blog or area to post an article.
  • Forums. Never forget forums relating to your niche. Put links to your site in your profile area and links in your signature. Ask and answer questions.

You can't do them all at once but try and set a goal to use at least one new service a week. Always use the "+1", "Tweet", "Like" and "Pin it" buttons when available.

Use your imagination. There are many places to build high quality backlinks to your pages. Check the Page Rank (PR) value of the site you build or post to. Do a search for "Google Page Rank Checker," and use it to check the sites PR. You want sites with at least a PR value of PR3. The higher the better.

When adding links to any of the above areas place your links as anchor text within the body of the document when possible. Use "longtailed" key phrases when possible. By that I mean the more words used in your anchor text relating to your site the better. Say you were in the business of "car insurance". You could use those words as your anchor text but something like, "car insurance quotes for young drivers" would be better, more targeted and descriptive.

Concentrate on learning what people want in your niche and market to them, and not to what some Google algorithm wants. The places you choose to build high quality backlinks are the same places that will be driving targeted and high quality traffic to your site. By doing so you will increase your websites popularity naturally over time. And this is what Google is checking now, especially on new sites.

Your Google page rank should be secondary to building your business. Don't work for Google, make Google work for you.

Negative SEO - What's that?

Google is really coming down hard on sites with many backlinks from low quality and unrelated sites - link farms. Knowing this some could maliciously start building poor quality links to their competitors pages to bring them down in the rankings. This has already been done in an experiment, but the sites that lost their rankings were already questionable to begin with.

What can be done to insure this want happen to your site? You guessed it, build assets. If you build high quality backlinks by using highly recognized sites with high PR value, you are building a solid foundation for your site and business. Neither Google, Panda, or anyone or thing can keep you down if you are building something worthwhile.

If your sites ranking have already been hurt then you can recover by doing the same. Build more assets and you will regain those high quality backlinks to increase your link popularity. In time the robots will recognize those quality links and ignore to bad ones.

Don't build your business like sandcastles in the sand. Sooner or later a wave large enough can wash it all away. Building assets will build those high quality backlinks and you will be building a solid foundation for your business. Use the many ways of marketing your business to your niche and forget about page rank. Your increased page rank will come as a fringe benefit in time.

Good points Kevin. I am new to this and I have one simple request. I need someone to put the definition of " backlinks" in simple laymens terms. What are they? :)

Hi Shawn...a back link is a link pointing to your site (your url) from another source...facebook, Street Artcles, a forum, any where.... In your article "How To Detail A Car" you have placed the URL of your site (blog) as an anchor text of that article. That is a backlink....Since Street Articles has somewhat high page rank (PR) then it would also be considered a high quality backlink. If you are on Facebook or Pinterest and have a link pointing to your blog then those are high quality backlinks also. The more quality links pointing to your blog you have, then the more Google and other search engines will consider your blog relevant and will give your blog a higher ranking in the search engines. Only add the URL of your site to other sites that are of high quality like the ones listed in the article. Never add link to low quality or unrelated sites.

Kevin, my question is what are good back links and how many do you need. I have written 50 articles on Street Articles. I have a lot of back links on some and just a few on others. My problem is I don't know a good one from a bad one. All the links I do have are generated by the article. I don't do anything artificial to generate them. My sales s*** but I'm keeping on keeping on.

John Street Articles is a great place and is my first choice in my marketing efforts, but you really need to use other services other than just one source like here....Visit and create content on some of the other services listed in the bullets points below the "Build Assets" heading...Those all have High PR value and really boost your webpage in ranking and are just another source to generate traffic....you want to diversify your marketing and use the many sources available....not just one....I know it is time consuming but still a necessary part of marketing your service...and as one of my favorite Pro Bass fisherman would say, "Never Give Up." Thanks for visiting and really appreciate your comment and input...

Hi John, why don't you try Squidoo, that has a very easy user interface or submitting a few articles to Ezine. You could also try branching out a little further and find a niche in some kind of specialized fishing equipment, you have a lot of knowledge in that area. I'm sure you'll start to see some sales soon, as Kevin says never give up!
