Should I Focus More On Backlinks or Content?

    I noticed that a lot of beginners keep asking this question: Which is more important, building links or coming up with fresh content on a daily basis? Here is what I think:
    SEMrush
    Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    This is the common question that most SEO professionals ask when it comes to the importance of content and backlinks.

    For something to be backlinked, you need to have content on your site. Once you have established a site with high-quality and fresh content then you can expect quality backlinks as well.

    To boost your rankings then backlinks and good content writing can make all the difference in terms of your competitiveness in the search engine optimization world.

    I always give both equal respect and importance when it comes to search engine optimization


    • Backlinking will get you higher page ranks

    Proper backlinking will improve your rankings in terms of search engine results. Go for proper link building to add a boost to your search engine ranking. Make sure that you link with highly credible and trustworthy site to strengthen your online presence on the web.


    • Great Content will get you Followers

    A well-written and well-researched content will get you a loyal following. It is also important to come up with a blog post that is entertaining and will generate attention as well. Be bold with ideas and concepts that will grab people’s awareness making your site highly competitive and visible.


    • Fresh Content is Vital to SEO

    Make sure that the content that you have is always fresh so that it can be visited by Google daily and be listed. Stale content always gets ignored by Google so make sure that you acquire new and linkable content from time to time. Do this both for images and texts. These can also come in the form of press releases, videos, company blog, client testimonials, and white papers.


    • Both Maximize Traffic to Your Site

    The common denominator here is that they will both maximize your traffic. They both work hand-in-hand to help improve your page ranking. Good relevant content and high quality backlinks will definitely increase your site’s traffic.

    So guys, what is working for you these days?

    The quality content is always come first because the quality content can actually generate natural backlink. However, backlink never generate content for you.

    Nice, this is something people should read before posting a silly new thread about exactly the same thing - guarantee at least 5 today asking about either how to make backlinks or what is backlinking.

    Anyway, many people look at the split and ratio differently, I see it almost 50/50 sometimes more in the case of content nowadays though. If you write a brilliant article you still need to do a bit of work to get people to read it (this could be done through sharing and spreading through the internet in turn generating backlinks.). It is no good writing content and expecting people to find you, SEO on and off page is part of and has to be part of the content writing process.

    We have had some good results with quality content and no backlinks but in a very competitive market sector you will need backlinks aswell to compete.

    Agree with the post as to get the better response from search engine as well as user we need to update your content frequently. If we are doing this then sure we got the good position as well as traffic from search engine.

    Content Is the KING. Google Loves quality and fresh content. Back links and Content both are important. Good Backlinks means high PR backlinks getting good ranking and traffic on your website.
