If you have been following this blog you know by now how important building quality backlinks are to your website or blog. Backlinks will be one of the main determining factors of how much traffic your online business gets and how fast it gets PageRank. Another determining factor for Google PageRank is the niche (type of product) your business is in and how competitive that niche is. I am mentioning Google because they are the largest search engine for sending traffic. However, do not underestimate Yahoo and Bing. You can’t ignore those two either because they are pretty big players in the search engine arena. It’s important to submit your content to all three. Anyway, I’m getting side tracked here. Let’s get back to discussing building your backlinks.
There are lots of different ways to go about it. You are going to need tons of them if you are in a highly competitive niche and maybe not so many if your niche isn’t that competitive. Most of the websites and blogs that I see generally have between 1,000 and 5,000. I have seen them as high as a million. Sometimes the quality of the link is more important than the quantity. It really just depends on your competition.
If your site is fairly new the first thing you can and should do is submit your site to different directories. There are thousands of them on the Internet. Just try to make sure that you submit it to directories that are relevant to your site’s content. You should also submit your blog to some high level blog directories such as blogged.com, Technorati.com and my personal favorite which I have had very good results with is MyBlogLog. Each of those will give you a quality backlink.
Next, start making some really good and powerful comments on some other blogs that are in the same niche as yours or at least relative. You can use a free service called Comment Kahuna to search for multiple blogs based on the keywords that you input. It will also list the current Google PageRank of those blogs. You need to make sure that you are commenting on higher PageRanked sites to get the biggest bang. In addition, by commenting on sites with a higher PageRank you can get your site ranked quicker. But more important than any of that should be the caliber of the comment you are leaving. Visitors to blogs read comments. I read them when I’m visiting other blogs. You want to add a great comment for two reasons. The first is that if it’s not valuable to the site the webmaster may just delete it. The second reason is that if you are giving out valuable information, the readers of that blog may see your comment and come and visit your site. And before I forget, make sure whenever you leave a comment that you always place your website address in the box where it ask for it. This will serve as the link back to your site. Without it you are wasting your time and efforts for nothing.
Later on when you get things a little more organized you can start guest blogging for other blogs, always leaving a backlink to your site. You could also write articles that you think will help a blog or website in your niche and present it to the webmaster. If the owner of that site thinks it’s valuable he may place it on his site with your site signature on the article serving as yet another backlink.
Try to make sure that you always write high quality content on your site. This always attracts search engines and other blogs. If it’s really valuable information those sites will start linking to yours. If enough higher quality sites link to your site it will serve to tell the search engines that you must know what you’re talking about.
You will learn many different methods as time goes on. If you’re serious you will get more involved and learn more. Quality backlinks are very important if you want to constantly increase your visitors and without visitors your site is nothing more than dead weight sitting in the middle of the Internet Ocean. The process of building your backlinks can be tedious but is a necessary evil.

Website content is any means of information that is uploaded to a certain domain or website. It doesn’t matter if we’re referring to images, text, audio, links, logos, buttons, charts, etc. The very first time you publish to your website you have content.
Most of you are probably saying I already knew that, however, I’m willing to bet many people who read this article now and in the future will not know what the term “website content” means. We can’t always assume that everybody knows what we know. This is why content is still king with the major search engines and always will be. The big players such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN and all the rest understand that their job is to get their customer an answer. Not only just an answer but the best answer. Their customer’s are all of us typing words and phrases into search boxes on the Internet when we want to find something. I’m not saying that the search engines won’t throw you a curve from time to time but the fundamental principle of searching won’t. When you type a word or phrase in that search box you are expecting to be taken to a page that has multiple listings of quality information that you can use. This is why Google is the biggest most powerful search engine on the planet. It’s because when you tell them you want to find something on the Internet they go and get exactly what you want. Don’t get me wrong. To truly reap the benefits of highly target organic traffic as well as pay per click you still have to do the other necessary evils depending on which nitche your website category is in. Yes I am again discussing one way back links, on page SEO and alt text and such.
Many webmasters have argued different points over the years as far as what really brings in the traffic. Is it back links or is it great content? The true answers are hidden by the likes of Google, Yahoo and the rest. If they let the world know their exact algorithm it would be duplicated quickly and would hurt their positions as the world’s premier search engines.
So the bottom line is this. If you want a website that will break through to the other side of high flowing dedicated traffic then you need to make sure you comply fully. Do the SEO work, use the proper key wording and tags, create plenty of good strong back links and above all make sure you always have viable and usable content. Know that if you are missing any of those items it will not help your website but instead will hinder it.
Hopefully this will help answer some real questions about website content. Think about what your keyword is and tell your user everything they could possibly need to know about that keyword. The search engines will then reward you well for helping them out by sending you more and more visitors.
Understand this article and you will understand why you always hear the term “Content is Still King.”
Website lacking in the traffic department? Have you tried everything you know to increase search engine traffic but still only getting dismal results? Don’t feel like you’re the only one! Generating true quality website traffic is the #1 road block to webmasters all around the world. Anybody can build a beautiful website with rich content that’s easy to navigate but without a dedicated flow of solid traffic to that website then that’s all it is and all it will ever be! Without the visitors your profits will be sour at best if you ever even earn a penny.
Hopefully you have completed the other tasks that a good webmaster should have done such as proper optimization by way of keywords being used correctly, alt text for your pictures, testing interior links, making sure of easy navigation for your visitors and started to build some quality backlinks for your site. Yes….it is true…targeted one-way backlinks is where your hoards of visitors will come from. Now I know that some of you more experienced webmasters are at this minute saying to yourself “yeah yeah…..we know all about the backlinks” . My response is I certainly hope you do. Quality one-way related backlinks is the main necessary ingredient needed to increase your search engine traffic. They will determine if you win or lose in the world of online marketing. You see the major “search engine crawlers” or “internet soldiers”, as I like to refer to them, are the very robots that will bring that lovely traffic to your website. You will be able to tremendously increase your traffic if the search engines know they can trust you. The only way they can know that is if you have hundreds if not thousands of other articles and links all over the internet pointing to your website. Once the search engines begin to see the related backlinks you will have effectively increased your traffic. How much it is increased will depend on the amount and quality of the back links along with proper on-page optimization.
So now we’re at the meat and potatoes of this handy little article. Let me get right to it! If you spent 8 hours a day writing quality articles and installing quality one-way links all pointing to your website it would take about 7 months to a year or maybe longer to get the kind of website traffic you truly need. You should have about 1000 links and articles but to be quite honest 3,000 to 5,000 or more would be even better. If you have that kind of time then go ahead and build them slowly. If you don’t have that kind of time and you need to be making good money now by increasing true quality website traffic then check out some of these alternatives.
You’ll be seriously glad you did.
