Backlinks For Better Ranking In The Serps

Hi Folks

In this blog I will outline ways to get some top quality backlinks. For those new members who don't know what a backlink is - its a hyper link from one site to another, from a variety of different sources, each source being unique.


When linking to your website you should always try to focus the links using your keywords in the anchor text of the link if it’s possible.

Below are four popular ways to get good backlinks.

1) Google My Business

Google My Business is essential if you want to appear in maps and in the local listings which are returned for local queries. With a large chunk of SERP real estate taken up by these, having a great GMB listing represents a significant opportunity for local businesses.

Setting up Google My Business is free. Its also worth checking that your business isn’t already listed. If you do find a listing, simply go through the process of claiming it.

2) MSN Articles

MSN is updated everyday with news and articles on just about every subject you can think of, to get a backlink you just need to create an account and then comment on an article leaving behind your thoughts, name and website link.

3) Yahoo Answers

Yahoo answers takes a little bit of work before you can get your links on their site but once you have done this you're ready to reap the rewards. Just create a yahoo account, help others by answering questions, once you have answered about 10-20 questions you will be able to add a link in your responses.

4) Godaddy

I’m sure you’ve heard of GoDaddy ? Bet you didn't know you can use the website to get backlinks to your website. All you need to do is visit the site and watch at least one of Bob Parsons videos. You will find his videos on YouTube and at the end of the video you can leave a creative comment and include a link to your website.

Take a look at the pie chart below and you can see at a glance that linking externally is quite important for your sites SEO and therefore your ranking in the SERPs.

There you go folks, and I’m sure these four sites will help in your back linking efforts.

Have an awesome weekend, and be successful.

Now I'm confused. Kyle just mentioned in his recent Diamond Traffic training back linking is not the way to go. Yet I read all these blog posts about back linking.

What is the Google profile? I thought Google + is dead already. Is that a different thing?

Great post! i do have a question though. I don't see where you can add a comment on MSN articles. Can you specify exactly where this can be done at?
Robert-A Premium
There are lots and lots of article on the Home Page itself you can leave a comment on.
Are you sure you're on the right page?

Thank you Robert. I have looked at 10 or 12 articles on MSN and have not seen anywhere to leave comments either.
