Importance of Backlinks for a website or blog

Guest Posting

Guest posting is one of the most used ways for building backlinks for your blog. You write a post for some other blog with your blog’s backlink in the author bio and if the post is published, you get the backlink. Usually, the guest authors target blogs with Page Rank 2 or more. Even blogs with Alexa rank less than 100K are much targeted. Well, if you are willing to turn into a guest author, try posting in groups and ask for the PR2+ blogs. You will get a lot of them.

Posting in Forums

Posting in forums also helps in building backlinks for your blog and the best thing is that it is quicker than guest posting. If you try this out, make sure that you post in some popular, high ranked forums and you also have to make sure that you follow the guidelines of the forum. Just add your blog link in the signature. Adding it in the post may not be a good idea. Also make sure that you never spam! Spamming will result in a permanent ban of your account. You should try out Digital Point as it is one of the most famous forums in the world.

Link Exchange

This is another quick method for building backlinks. In this, you have to place somebody’s blog’s link on your blog and in return that person will place your blog’s link in his/her blog. This provides as a good method for building backlinks quickly and it also proves good for not only one, but two people at the same time. Another variation of this is 3-way link exchange. In a 3-way link exchange if you own two (or more) blogs, you can ask some other fellow blogger to link back to your first blog and in return you can link him from your second blog. This will help to boost your rankings higher and thus will bring more traffic.

Comment at Do-Follow Blogs

There are certain blogs that are do-follow. It means the links on those blogs help in increasing the page rank. First step is to find blogs with the CommentLuv plugin. Search for a list of blogs using this plugin and you will get a good list. Now, the commenting process begins. You just have to make sure that you don’t spam in between the comments because you will get a link without it. Also, write some productive and relevant comments. Don’t just copy-paste the comments.

Do comment with your opinions about the points that are shared in this post.

Do-Follow vs No-Follow back links – Which should I use?

Do-Follow Links vs No-Follow Links

Emerging as one of the internet’s biggest debate, No-Follow and Do-Follow often tends to confuse the webmasters when it comes to link building. Some say No-Follow links prevent the search engines from crawling back to your site thereby proving inefficient in improving your page rank, whereas some say building too many Do-Follow links might give a wrong impression to the search engines who are constantly looking to bust spam links, and then there are some who think building some No-Follow links along with Do-Follow will help you escape the claws of search engine and you can work on to get better rankings.

What exactly are No-Follow and Do-Follow links

No-Follow is an HTML attribute attached with your hyperlink which prevents the search engines from crawling back to your site thus ignoring you a SERP boost.

Do-Follow is not a tag or attribute as the links which are not No-Follow are automatically considered as Do-Follow. These links actually passes “link juice” from the originating site to the linked site helping them in acquiring more traffic to their, hence boosting their SERP.

Planning To Host a Blog: Take Right Decision

Google uses many algorithms to rank web pages, one of them being the number of in-links to your pages. It is up to the webmaster whether to host a No-Follow or a Do-Follow blog. Running through some of the pros and cons will help you decide better.

Pros (No-Follow Links)

1. Prevents spamming – Spammers looking to extract link juice will think leaving a comment on such a site will be a mere waste of time. This will filter out the top commentators providing genuine feedback.

2. Preserves link juice – Giving a No-Follow tag to all your external links will help you preserve your link juice and work towards attaining a higher page rank.

3. Helps develop trust – Search engines develop a trust for your blog as you are avoiding spam comments.

Cons (No-Follow Links)

1. Reduced blog activity – People looking for back links to their pages will always avoid a No-Follow blog making it difficult for you to get more traffic to your site.

2. Hard to get link juice to your site/blog – It would eventually become harder to get traffic to your site as commenting only on Do-Follow blogs can help you gather in-links.

Pros (Do-Follow Links)

1. Encourages Traffic – Loved by most webmasters, a high ranked Do-Follow blog always attracts more traffic to it.

2. Marketing point of view – As a marketer, you can encourage people by using the plus point and attract more visitors.

Cons (Do-Follow Links)

1. Increases spam activity – People looking for some link juice will always show up on your blog/site with some useless comments.

2. Sacrifice your authority – Providing links to every person will reduce your credibility. It is always advisable to be selective in whom you reward.

The Final Verdict

Do-Follow links will give you human traffic as well as SEO traffic whereas No-Follow links will provide you with human traffic which is still the best thing to achieve. Thus as some say, maintaining a balance between No-Follow and Do-Follow links would work the best, it is always advisable to ensure proper management of your links.
