All About External Link Building


Albeit many metrics are now included in ranking and indexing of website links stand out. They stand out as a decisive factor and as indicators of topic and niche. Though mass scale link building is no more the criteria of performance on the SERPs a large number of authoritative links do help. 

Natural links are the best for any website and most liked by the search companies nevertheless a lot of hard work and ingenuity is required. The content creation with niche information, utilities, graphics and videos create an ambience for inviting linking. Easier said then done but all web masters should aim at achieving a large number of natural links.       

Another good option is to create contents and add a link and then post it to an article site with editorial scrutiny. This is applicable to creating external links on all platforms that are authoritative with good reputation online. 

The most important aspect of external link creation is relevancy. The external link should be embedded in content which is topic relevant. But while doing this posting should not be done at spam sites or farms which are built for this very purpose. In case of doubt add "nofollow" attribute to escape the wrath of the search engine. There are many "nofollow" sites where link can be embedded in a write up or article safely. But even here editors will not allow spamming. Hence create content which is unique all the time and post in these sites for building referrals.       

When you embed a link do it in a sentence which contains relevant information, and is not more than a 100 characters.  Use logical linking practise in a suitable anchor but not manipulate the sentence to add a primary one. Large number of related anchors perfectly suitable to the content should be used.     
A large list of relevant anchors used naturally help the algorithms determine on which keywords the side should rank. It is no longer to use one type of targeted anchor excessively. The indexing criteria has evolved much more and can decipher what the site is all about.      

There are many platforms available for attractive content publication. These are manned by editors and strict editorial  scrutiny is maintained. This is the way to for search engine professionals now. These sites can offer quality linking but a lot of hard work is required in order to understand their criteria.     

A blog is also a good option for link building but the write ups should be of serious nature. As applicable to all content creation topic relevancy is of utmost importance. Just do not create haphazard contents to as an option for linking. A large number of anecdotal and informative blog entries is the order of the day.   

Hence numbers have no meaning if the activity is not executed rightly. Qualitative linking should be done in a campaign for search engine optimisation. Remember quality and not quantity counts. Have patients for results to come through.

Use the content creation to gain popularity of social networking websites, blog aggregates, online communities. The reputation you build up gradually will offer long term stability high position to your client's website.

Not only this inactive brand mentions in contents can also reap a great harvest. Natural language processing and artificial intelligence are inching their way up in the whole process of indexing and ranking. This is slowly changing the paradigm which the webmasters will have to be in tandem with or leave the service.     

You are not a search engine professional if you stop analysing and stop reading informative articles on this topic. Internet is constantly evolving and so are the search engines.
