Link Building SEO


Link building is one of the most important parts of SEO. In fact, it is one whole side of the SEO process. Link building is your off-site SEO. Off-site SEO includes submissions to directories, articles directories, link exchanges with other websites, blogs, press releases, and any other form of getting links from other sites that point or lead visitors back to your website.

Links are like a billboard along the road or a listing in a phone book, or an advertisement in the local newspaper. They are places where potential customers are likely to visit and see how to contacts you, or in this case, allow direct access to pages of your website. The more links that you have is comparable to how many places you advertise. If people can find you in more places, they are more likely to find you.

Where this relates to SEO, is that each link is like a popularity vote. If a site is linking to your site for a particular topic, it must think that your content for that topic is worth looking at and is referring it to its visitors. This adds relevance to your site for the topic being linked about. For each link, a value is assessed for your site where it links to. SEO is based on relevance in the search results. This is why link building is so important to SEO.
