Many Junkie Backlinks vs. Few But Quality Backlinks

If you are busy creating backlinks one thing that you need to be aware of is the quality of your backlinks. While you may be busy creating as many backlinks as possible, this might be not as effective as you think. Let's take a look.

You have no doubt heard the term quality over quantity, and this is very true when it comes to backlinks. Instead of concentrating on getting a high number of backlinks, you should consider the quality of each link first.

When creating backlinks yourself, you really need to understand the most recent changes that Google has made to their algorithms. This can have a huge impact on your backlinks. Currently Google is viewing quality over quantity big time. If you are aware of this you can apply these strategies to your own SEO methods.

Instead of just busily creating backlinks from various sources, seek out just one or two great sources that can really help boost your site. The advantage to doing this is that you don't have to spend as much time creating backlinks. If you use any type of SEO Services this can also save you money over the long term. Instead of ordering multiple times, you could potentially just place one or two orders and request a higher quality backlink.

While this method does sound like plain common sense there will still be marketers who are focusing on nothing but numbers. This is not a good route for you to follow at all.

When we talk about quality backlinks we are not saying to go out and only find PR7 links for example. The higher the page rank of a site the better. So this means that a PR2 is much better than a PR0 for example.

It is not impossible to get a backlink with a PR5 rating and one of the best ways to do this is by looking for guest blog posting opportunities. If you are an expert in your field you could easily write a blog post for a higher ranking site. This method can get you lots of exposure as well as a quality backlink.

When creating your quality backlinks think about your choice of keyword or keywords that you are using. Using a good keyword can help win you favor with Google and the other search engines.

Hopefully when it comes to your next round of backlinking you will decide to create quality backlinks this time around. You can do this yourself or by using one of the many backlink building services that are available.
