What are Backlinks?

Backlinks are the links of your blog / website in any other webpage which directly points to your site or to webpage of your site when anybody clicks on that link. In simple words, backlinks are incoming links to your blog from other blogs or websites. Backlinks are also said as inbound links or incoming links.

Types of Backlinks

Backlinks are mainly of two types namely – do-follow backlinks and no-follow backlinks. Do-follow backlinks are those backlinks, which search engines and bots crawl and index them, while No-follow backlinks are not crawled and indexed by search engines and bots.
The do-follow backlinks have attribute rel=”dofollow” in link while no follow backlinks are given by rel=”nofollow” in the link.
Example:
1. For do-follow backlinks:
< a href = ”www.technologyimpulse.com” rel=”dofollow”>

2. For No-follow Backlinks
a href= ”www.technologyimpulse.com” rel=”nofollow”

What are Quality Backlinks?

Quality Backlinks are those backlinks which are pointed or redirected from same niche. For example, if your site has a backlink from technology related website to your sports content related website, then it is not a quality backlink. Let us take another example, if your site has a backlink from Microsoft’s official website to your technology related website on any article related to Windows or any other Microsoft product, then it is the best quality backlink that you can have.

Importance of Quality Backlinks

Quality backlinks are very much essential to improve Page Rank of your blog and result better in search ranking. If you do not build quality backlinks and just making backlinks from anywhere without noticing the niche of website then Google may penalize your site instead of reputing it and may treat it as a spammer site. So, while building backlinks for you site, always try to focus on quality backlinks instead of building a number of inappropriate backlinks.

Tips to build Quality Backlinks:

1.

Select the Target for Backlinks

The very first step in building quality backlinks is to select the target from where you can easily grab the backlinks for your blog.
If I elaborate it more, then it means you should to know the popular sites of your niche. For example, if you own a health related blog then search for other high PR health related blogs of your niche. In case you own an educational site, then search for other high ranked educational blogs. After selecting the target sites and blogs, try to contact their owners and ask them for Guest posting, link exchange or paid links.

2.

Guest Posting – Well known way of building Backlinks

After selecting your targeted blogs, check whether they accept Guest posts or not. Generally most of the blogs accept Guest posts, if you write a very high quality article for them (as all love good and quality articles). While writing a guest post make sure to write a very good article of at least 500 words and you can provide a do-follow backlink in between of your article or at Guest author’s bio position (as most of the blogs provide backlinks at author’s bio position). Most of the webmasters allow two do-follow backlinks for a single guest post. So, you can make a large number of backlinks by writing more and more guests post. If you write one guest post daily, then you can easily get around 60-70 backlinks within one month.
We also accept guests post at TechnologyImpulse.com, you can contact us for posting your articles here.

Commenting on Do-follow blogs – free backlinks without much efforts

The third step to build quality backlinks is commenting. Remember that, only simple commenting on any blog or site can not be helpful for making do-follow backlinks. For this, firstly you need to select or search for do-follow commenting blogs, it means search for those blogs which have activated do-follow in comments as by default WordPress blogs and most of the other blogs and sites have no-follow attribute in links to comments. So, for this you have to make a well plan and search for do-follow comment system blogs and leave a good comment there without spamming the sites. Many do-follow comment accepting sites uses ComLuv plugin which shows latest article of your site/ blog as do-follow. One such high PR site is http://weblogtoolscollection.com which has a Page Rank of 7 and accepts do-follow comments. There are such many site which have high Page Rank and activated do=follow comment system, I will cover all those sites in my other article.

4.

Use of Google Plus for Backlinks

Google Plus can be very helpful in building effective do-follow backlinks. If you do not know, then I would like to tell you that all the external and internal links in Google Plus are do-follow. So, here you can create a number of backlinks generated from a site with Page Rank 8, so utilize good use of your Google Plus profile and pages for generating large number of backlinks for your blog through Google itself.

What is Do-follow link

For novice bloggers or those who are not familiar with the term do-follow and no-follow, can ask such a silly question. So, for them I would like to tell that do-follow is a link or backlink within a web page which is instructed to search engines and robots to crawl and follow. So, if a link is do-follow, then search engines are instructed or ordered to crawl that link and visit the link for deeper indexing of webpage.

What is No-follow link

No-follow link is very opposite to the do-follow link. If a link is not a do-follow, then it means it must be a no-follow. In ‘no-follow’ links, search engines are instructed to exclude the link from crawling.
