What is link building?
Link building is the process of getting other websites to link to pages on your website to
help them rank higher in Google search results.
In general, you can boil most “white hat” link building strategies down to two simple steps:
1. Create something notable (and therefore worthy of a link);
2. Show it to people who own websites (and thus can link to it).
Why is link building important?
According to Google’s Andrey Lipattsev, links are one of the three major ranking factors in
Google. So if you want your website’s pages to rank high in search, you will almost
certainly need links.
Google (and other search engines) look at links from other sites as “votes.” These votes help
them identify which page on a given topic (out of thousands of similar ones) deserves to be
ranking at the very top of the search results.
As a general rule, pages with more backlinks tend to rank higher in search results. This has
been studied at scale by many SEO companies and the correlation between the number of
websites linking to a page and it’s ranking position in Google has always turned out positive.
Types of links
The links you see on your website are called Internal Links and External Links.
• What is an internal link?
Internal links are links you see on a webpage that navigates you to another web page of the
SAME domain. These links allow viewers to stay on your page longer as they are redirected
around your website. As a result, it increases your website authority which contributes to
• What is an external link?
External links, or what we like to call “outbound links”, are links that bring you to another
domain while surfing a particular website. This type of link is usually used to provide
viewers with further explanations done by other website owners.
An external link is considered as the most important criterion that will help you rank. Why does an external
link matter? It is believed that external links cannot be unfairly controlled.
• What is a backlink?
Backlinks are also known as inbound links. They are links and connections created by
another website to your website.
Let’s refresh, what is outbound and inbound links (from our perspective)?:
• Internal Links: We send our readers from one of our webpage to another.
• Outbound Links : We send our readers to another website.
• Inbound Links: Other websites send their readers to our website.
The more backlinks a website receives, the more relevant, useful and important it is. These
backlinks will contribute to your ranking on the SERP.
