Backlinks are one of the essential things for your website. Everybody knows that this is the thing that controls the web and is one of the most important things for a webmaster. You may say that backlinks are the backbones of your website. As soon as Google gains its popularity, SEO begins to gain additional adhesion and backlinks turns to be a prime success factor for SEO. The incoming links from other quality websites or blogs to your website are termed as backlinks. The more backlinks you acquire from high domain authority websites the more is your chances to go up in the SERP. And who doesn’t know the value of high SERP now a day?
Here I will discuss seven ways to acquire quality backlinks for your website:
Avoid Anchor tags Spam
Three to four years back it was a common practice to gain backlinks from websites with high page rank using a common anchor text or in SEO terms Keywords. Back in that time this method helps the webmasters to gain high SERP for that particular keyword. But in the post Penguin era, this practice is almost banned. Google always praises the site that ranks better in a natural way without pushing. And the search engine giant considers it as pushing if you use same anchor text in all the places. So use different anchor text on different blogs or sites.
Earn Links Instead of Buying or Generate
Generate good quality content that is worth reading. If you generate content that is valuable to the people then every blog owner or social media groups will be eager to share your content on their personal blogs, sites or social platform and willingly offers your site a link back. This will make your content go viral and will upgrade your site naturally.
Don’t Use Spam Sites
It is currently a common phrase in SEO world that directory submissions and article submissions are obsolete now. But still you can use it in your favor. There are still some (though very little in number) directory and article submission sites that will add value to your site. So, the bottom line here is: don’t utilize spam or low-quality sites for your website. They won’t add any value to the site instead will push it further towards penalty.
Avoid Links from Same C-class IP
Don’t acquire more than one site which has same class C IP. Though the domains here are different but Google will consider them as same copied site. So gathering more links from same C-class IP will mark your site as a fraud in the eyes of Google.
Links from Local Marketing Sites
Post pigeon era now focuses more on local submission sites. Try to submit your site on sites like yelp to gain more valuable review for your potential customers. In 2015, Google gives more values to the big local listing sites like Yelp, Foursquare etc.
Monitor Your Backlinks
In order to save your site from penalization always monitor your backlinks and remove the links which you found are spam, i.e., not following the rules of Google in the post penguin era. You can do it by utilizing the Google disavow links tool.
Use Press Release
Though you may think that press releases are not much useful now; however, similar to the article submission sites there are press release submission sites like prlog which can add immense value to your site.
So, in the post penguin and pigeon era you can still gather quality backlinks for your sites following the above mentioned seven rules. These are truly helpful in gaining SERP.
