When I see these kind of thread titles I expect to read about some individual's site. But these link droppers are making my life worse. Is it just me or everybody gets disappointed after seeing the content of the thread?
If you have good quality content on your website, you should have no problems getting genuine back links in return.
Also blog commenting in dofollow blogs is a way to build quality back links.
Backlinks are incoming links to a website or web page. In the search engine optimization (SEO) world, the number of backlinks is one indication of the popularity or importance of that website or page.
This is also one of the things that search engine spiders look for in order for them to rank your webpages. The best thing for this is through article submission, it does not only give you backlink but also enough traffic coming from it because it can also rank well in Google and Yahoo.
Back links helps your site/blog get into top rankings. But of course what counts most is the quality of back links you are getting.. Google gives more value on the quality of back links compared to those irrelevant sites that you have..
I agree also... although I have found you can do a heck of alot with on site optimization including modifying the internal link structure and adding more links throughout the website itself. It helps, but I am 100% for backlinks too, and alot of them if possible!
When search engines calculate the relevance of a site to a keyword, they consider the number of QUALITY inbound links to that site. So we should not be satisfied with merely getting inbound links, it is the quality of the inbound link that matters.Search engines want websites to have a level playing field, and look for natural links built slowly over time. While it is fairly easy to manipulate links on a web page to try to achieve a higher ranking, it is a lot harder to influence a search engine with external backlinks from other websites.
