What Are Backlinks? An Introduction.
Whether you are a blogger, a business owner, an e-commerce entrepreneur or anything in between, the world of websites, pages, profiles and links can be terribly overwhelming. While you are probably just proud of yourself for creating a website and launching it into cyberspace (as you should be), there is more to a website than just the layout. You will soon come to find that content and traffic are the two most important aspects of your site, no matter what you’re using it for (blogging, business, revenue, etc.).
To increase your traffic and be more visible on the Internet, you have to provide content. To promote your content, you have to have viewers, or traffic. To get more viewers, you have to have other viewers support your content. Are you sensing a theme? This is a constant cycle, and to help you out there are many tools you can employ, from social media to keywords to other websites. One such method is called a “backlink,” and it is incredibly powerful in getting people to “vote” for your website and increase your visibility on multiple platforms, as well as earn higher rankings on search engines.
