Getting Top Ranked at Google – Inbound Links
Continuing the SEO discussion, next on the list of MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS in getting top ranked at Google is inbound links, sometimes referred to as “BACKLINKS.”
Links TO your website from other websites, ideally thematically similar to your website’s general theme (i.e. “weddings”), are an indication to Google that others like and approve of your content. In a sense, BACKLINKS create quality, trust, and authority – why would someone link to your website otherwise?
Getting BACKLINKS to your website or blog is not easy-to-do. It takes a lot of time and it won’t happen fast.
How do you get more BACKLINKS? Ask to exchange links with other wedding vendors you meet at wedding. Blog about another wedding vendor and link to them and they are more likely to do the same. I’ve found these to be two of the most effective ways to build inbound links to your website over time.
