Link building is an essential component to any SEO strategy. To be successful in the long run, however, you should understand why this is an important tool, so you can better manage them moving forward. Today we’re breaking it down and sharing five tips for understanding the importance of link building.
First, it’s valuable to know why we use link building as a part of SEO strategy. Google pays favor to sites with high authority (as we mentioned in our blog last week), and links are connections between pages that make up the Internet. This is how people find new websites and products, and also how Google discovers new content to push to its users. The more relevant links you have on other sites, the more likely you are to be found higher in a search. Brightlocal (our SEO strategy software) likes to think of them as popularity votes. With that in mind, let’s go over our five industry secrets for link building.
