What is exactly a "quality" backlink?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by Kenayu, Jun 1, 2011.

    Hi everyone, I keep hearing about the importance of building quality backlinks but what exactly defines "quality" in a backlink?

    I have read that it has to do with page rank and closeness to the topic of the niche.
    I just began building backlinks for my websites and I feel a little confused, because I don't want to screw up by building the wrong types of backlinks. I want them to be long term.
    SEMrush
    What software or methods would you recommend to build quality backlinks?
    I am testing the "Backlink Battleplan" e-book. It recommends to use IMautomator to bookmark the page, but I am afraid that those links will end up doing damage to my rankings in the long run since they are "free". I am also thinking about buying scrapebox.

    Any help is appreciated :)

    Good backlinks are natural backlinks. When you build backlinks, ask yourself if someone else would naturally point to your site at that place.

    For example, backlinks in the middle of topic related articles are great, because it's probably someone would link to your website as an additional ressource.

    Backlinks that were built on naturally, coming from ranking sites that are related to your website's niche or subject is what I consider a "quality" backlink. Building backlinks naturally can be tiresome (some people don't want to do it altogether and outsource the task) but it's effects are long term.

    backlinks from themes related sites, high pr sites, and the most important thing is the link should be dofollow

    Site relevancy, quality of the website, Google page rank of the linking page, Alexa ranking of the site etc makes a good and quality backlink for you...

    Quality links should be from the OnFocus website. That should be from higher PR sites, natural & dofollow.

    Manual Back Link building is better than building backlinks using software. Quality links must be like genuine links. (from relevant niche with good pr and traffic)

    Promoting your website under the best website that has high PR from which you have to get backlink for your website. Quality backlinks can be built by doing social bookmarking, Press Release Distribution, Craigslist submissions. Affiliate programs are also good for getting more visitors (and buyers) and for building quality back links.you can offer to interested sites RSS feeds for free. When the other site publishes your RSS feed, you will get a back link to your site and potentially a lot of visitors, who will come to your site
