How to obtain Backlinks to Your Website
To get traffic from search engines without spending money requires your website to rank higher. To rank higher you need Search Engine Optimization (SEO)! We start SEO by creating high-quality content in your niche, optimizing pages of the website, having the right keywords, carefully selected titles, meta-descriptions and so on. Once we have done all that, we need to take care of something that is equally important to improve your ranking, Backlinks. In this article, we will talk about the importance of backlinks to your store and how to generate them.
Not all backlinks are the same
The links to your store are important, but not all links have the same value on the Internet. A link coming from BBC will not have the importance to the search engines that a link coming from a blog that takes very little time creating content. Therefore, while you need as many backlinks as possible, it is best to reset this goal and say that you need as many good backlinks as possible.
Some of the key elements to determine the value of a link to your store are:
Backlinks of high-traffic and highly important online sites are much more important than those coming from small sites.
New links to your store are much more relevant than those that appear on sites where you've been mentioned before.
If a page has too many links, each will have a lower relative value than a page where there are not many backlinks.

Do not buy backlinks
Strive to have quality links to your store. The worst thing you can do is to buy links on low reputation webpages because somehow if you try to manipulate the system, Google or other search engines will know. With Backlinks, web engines can validate if your webpage is a good answer for a particular search query and if there are people recommending you on external pages. Remember, search engines like Google are always updating and adapting their algorithms to find which links are real and which are not.
