In my earlier article, I covered the main points of your SEO strategy, now I am going to explain each one in detail! So this is the first post about backlinks :
What is Web 2.0?
Web 2.0 is the current state of the internet. Web 2.0 focuses more on user-generated content than traditionally generated content. It encourages user interaction and collaboration on a large scale. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and all social networking sites are a part of Web 2.0.
It is essential to have back-links from Social Media, however as these backlinks are usually “no-follow”, they do not count as ranking factors directly! What I mean by directly is that Google does consider your social following and social authority for ranking your blog or website. But we can all guess and speculate, we are never going to know how Google actually ranks websites. The only thing we know is that high-quality content is the best way to get your site ranked. So we will just keep doing that till we get there.
Find the best sites for generating Web 2.0 Backlinks :
Now, I talked about the most popular sites before, but there are hundreds and thousands of sites where you could establish your back-links but do not get too excited and spam every website. I do not recommend this practice as I always have worked on creating good quality back-links from high domain authorities in the same niche. It is not difficult to establish good relationships at all!
But I realize that there are clients out there who do not care about this, they do not understand, all they want to see is a high back-link activity in their Web Site Audit. So I have compiled a list of Web 2.0 sites where you can create your back-links. Focus on good content and anchor text over there and you will be fine. Do not spam or you will see your rankings drop faster than anything you have ever seen.
Here are some tips to follow before you start building back-links on Web 2.0 :
- Do not have empty profiles, contribute to the community always
- Web 2.0 should be a small part of your strategy, not the main part
- GOOD CONTENT!
I hope you will be making good use of these links. Please do not spam or you will be penalized in no time! There is no such thing as being “extra-safe” in SEO, do your research, these backlinks might give you the stats that you are looking for, but building and maintaining relationships will get you business!
