Backlinks are linky votes of confidence, and are core to any serious SEO campaign. Backlinks represent links from other websites that point to your site, and are very important in regard to how well your website or blog ranks in the search engines. The more quality backlinks a site has translates into better search engine rankings… in a nutshell.
- Google typically only reveals LESS THAN 1% of the actual backlinks for your site that they are giving you credit for.
- Yahoo! typically only reveals LESS THAN 5% of the actual backinks for your site.
The main reason why backlink sources are not revealed is simple; Blackhat SEOs can use that information for shady intentions. All the more reason to hire a professional SEO; which have the tools to track backlinks beyond what is readily available to the general public, and experience to formulate viable Off-Page SEO strategy. Plus, we tend to have a ‘knack’ for knowing all of the good places to get ‘juicy’ backlinks. 🙂
