SEO Link Building Checklist

Key to Successful Link Building

What can you do to successfully compete in link popularity with top ranked websites? The answer looks simple: get as many site backlinks as you can. However, having a large number of backlinks is not enough - link quality is an even more important signal.

Some good points to remember for SEO link building are:

  • The web page with a backlink to your site should highlight the theme related to your website and, specifically, to the link anchor text. So be careful when you contact a potential link partner.
  • The sites pointing to your pages should not use link spamming methods.
  • It's good for the page that links to you to have high Google PageRank, which is a measure of its importance.
  • You should not get too many inbound links too quickly because rapid growth of backlinks may alert Google that you are possibly using a link spam technique.
  • It's recommended to have both reciprocal and one-way links pointing to your site.
  • Take care about the diversity of your link profile: get many single backlinks from different sites rather than the same number of links from one site.

Remember and use these rules when you build links for your site.
