Let’s dig more into the pool of SEO by learning about a very important aspect and that is Link Building:

BUILDING LINKS:

When users search something, search engines start crawling links to your site to reach to you. More link your site has links, more findable your site will be. If your site has no incoming or outgoing links it is likely to be isolated.

Anchor text is important so it should provide context and relevance.

TYPES OF LINKS:-

  • INCOMING LINKS: All those links that are coming to your site from blogs, forums, other websites, etc are incoming links. It is necessary to ensure that only good and contextual links are coming to your site. Because contextual links have the highest conversion rate.
  • OUTGOING LINKS: Links going out to other websites from your website.

For search engines, it’s important that you must have both incoming and outgoing links.
