One of the biggest contributing factors to achieving a good page rank is the quality of your links. A few years ago, there was an understanding that the best way to get to the top of search engines was to get as many links to your site as possible, regardless of where they come from. Recently though, backlink booster programs and services have hit the market, explaining the overwhelming need to audit your links and ensure they are coming from relevant sites in your niche. Now what do I mean when I say “Boosting” your backlinks? This is an easy process and can be achieved by following a few simple steps.
Step 1. Share First, Boost Later
The worst thing you could do, is be overly concerned about where your links are going to be coming from prior to you writing your material. This bad habbit will cause you to know doubt spam your own site or blog with an over abundant use of targeted keywords. Take your time to write the content and then establish your backlinks later. Content is always king when it comes to establishing quality links directed towards your site.
Step 2. Control Your Links
There is nothing wrong with linking to sites or blogs that you find to be useful to yourself and your viewers. However, be careful that the majority of your links aren’t being directed to webspaces outside of your niche. This is a common mistake that can quickly diminish your pagerank. A good way to practice this, is to find a product or service that your find to be useful in your niche. Write about this, and then you now have an easy reference to link to that you already know will be relevant to your post. When you create a sponsored review, you are usually given a specific backlink to the site your sponsoring. Make sure these links are relevant as well.
Step 3. Be Open To Outsiders
This blog is a prime example of how useful it is to be open to other bloggers sharing their interests. I love to write, but lets be honest, who wants to hear me babble on and on. It’s great to get a fresh perspective on your niche and allow others to share their experience. Most bloggers who are ready and willing to post on your site or blog, are usually within your niche, and their backlinks will no doubt be relevant to your site.
Step 4. Audit Your Site Regularly
Just because you made a post or updated your site a month ago, doesn’t mean you never need to look over the information again. I make it a practice to check my blog 2-3 times a month, using these backlink booster techniques. A month ago I may have been busy, approved 1 or 2 too many comments with URL links, and now my link juice is slowly draining itself dry. Take the time to go over your content by auditing its relevance and make any further moderation that’s needed. This will really help you in the long run when you have hundreds of pages and thousands of posts.
