SEO For Beginners: How To Create Backlinks

By June 6, 2016March 26th, 2024SEO.

Lesson 19

A backlink is simply a link on another website that points to your website.
It is very important that you create backlinks on websites that are relevant to your niche.
For example, if your website is about cooking, you should aim to create backlinks on other websites related to cooking.

Why? Because Google is getting smarter and they know that it doesn’t make sense if a website about games is linking to a website about cooking.
A few links is fine but if you have thousands of these random backlinks, Google will detect that the links have been created in an unnatural way and slap your website with a penalty.

Note: In March 2016, Google removed PageRank from the public.


Creating Backlinks – Tips

1. Create a new email specifically for creating backlinks so can you can avoid receiving emails you are not interested in.

2. Use AutoHotKey and/or the Autofill browser add-on to speed up the process.

3. If are being asked to provide some personal information, a Bio for example, then it is a good idea to provide realistic details and add a profile picture.
This will lower the chance of your account (backlink) being detected as a fake registration and being deleted.
