Backlinks: Google’s trove of gold​

Is your website teeming with stellar content? That will attract the attention of other companies and organizations that work in the same field. And it’s likely they will add a link on their website to one of your pages. Take a bow, because this is the cold, hard proof Google needs that you are an authority.

Can backlines be manipulated? Yes and no. Meaning: You can buy them, but we strongly advise against doing that. It costs money, it doesn’t work and above all: it’s one of Google’s deadly sins. If Google finds out it will throw the book at you.

Better idea: Build your network. Find businesses and organizations with the same target audience and insert links to each other’s website. Or share your expertise in a guest blog. That’s how to build a reputation as an expert in your field.
