When it comes to getting traffic online it all comes to getting backlinks to your site, right? One of the first things you hear when you learn about building backlinks and where to get them from is to get backlinks from extremely quality sites because quality backlinks are better than quantity, but why might that be?
The reason people say to get quality backlinks is because each backlink is like a vote and the more you get from trusted and reputable sites the better off your website will be. Here’s the problem; you’re placing all your eggs in one basket . Think about this, what would happen if the all mighty Google decides to alter their algorithm again and goes from quality to quality plus quantity? I bet many people would be struggling to build more links rather than just quality links.
Something that I do that I gets a lot of grief about is that I’m building too many junk backlinks, but in my opinion I am just getting prepared for 2 things. The first thing I am getting prepared for is in the event that Google modifies their algorithm around , because this way I would have all bases covered. And the second thing I’m getting prepared for is those junk sites that I have lots of links on to become authority sites .
Let me ask you something; if Facebook sent you an email day they came online and asked to exchange links would you have done it? Probably not because they weren’t considered an authority website, but would you now? Or coarse you would, you are no dummy and you understand that with over 500 million members that having a link on the homepage of Facebook would bring you lots of traffic and make your site jump in the search engines. That’s why if you want to make money quickly with your website that you must first get both quality and quantity backlinks.
