Search engine optimization is an extremely important tool if you are attempting to boost your business’s or organization’s website profile. One of the best ways to improve you site’s search engine rank and utilize SEO is to employ a link building service. These services will build up a vast number of links on your behalf, but there is a lot of difference between low quality links and effective high quality links. Advanced link building services will offer you high quality as well as quantity. The following link building techniques are what good services will use.
Links work the best when placed on sites which cover a subject that relates to your company. Search engines value links from similar sites more than those from unrelated ones. Links on relevant sites are flagged up as spam far less often, by both the website and the search engines. Another positive is that more genuinely interested people will see the link to your site. Having a mass influx of people is not useful unless they are actually interested in the product you sell.
Another factor that search engines consider when assessing a linked site’s relevance is its geographic proximity. If the site is locally associated with your own, then it is felt to be more reliable. Proximity is normally based on having the same country code top-level domain (ccTLD). The following are examples of this: . CO.UK (for the United Kingdom), . EU (for the European Union), and . DE (for Germany).
If links are placed on a trusted site, they will boost your page rank more effectively than if they were featured on a relatively unknown one. A site’s trustworthiness is based on how long it has existed for, how well established it is, and how high up it features in search engine rankings itself.
A site with a larger audience is preferable. It makes sense that sites which receive more traffic will mean that many more people see the links and follow them. This also makes them appear higher quality from the view point of the search engines. The information on visitor figures is often kept in the ‘about us’ section.
The format of a link is also incredibly important. Text links work best when important key words are included alongside them. Image links cannot be understood by search engines unless they are well tagged with a meaningful name.
Advanced link building services can be slightly more costly than their competitors, but are worth it because of the increased website traffic that you gain. Different services will have different packages so it is a good idea to shop around.
