    Link building - creating links either on site. There are various ways to do this but some that i stick to are:
    Guest posts, social media, web 2.0 sites and videos.
    Your objective should be to provide good content and link with high ranking sites.
    Final thoughts: Building links can be as simple as creating an article that is reader friendly and seo friendly and and link it back to your site!
    I hope this helped and if you have any other quesrions id love to help! :)

    Link Building is a very important part of Search Engine Optimization. In simple words, it means placing the links of your website to other websites so that if anyone clicks on that particular link he/she is directed to your website. The best way to start would be social media websites and guest posts.

    - You can promote your website (or it's products) on social media like Facebook, twitter and so many others. If you do a search you'll find tonnes of articles on how to do that.
    - You can visit websites relevant to your website's theme and leave comments in there strategically placing a link back to your own website.
    - You can write an article about anything related to your website's products/theme and submit the article to literally thousands of free article sites. But don't forget to place your website's link in the article.

    Hope this helps, I've tried to be as simple as possible.

    oversimplifying but: google expects an 'authority' site - one that deserves a high SERP rank - to have other places linking to it. link building is going out and proactively gaining links to your site to enhance it's reputation as a 'quality' site in the hope that this will have a positive effect on your SERP position.

    In regards to your question, according to Wikipedia:
    "In the field of search engine optimization, link building describes actions aimed at increasing the number and quality of inbound links to a page".
    Now in regards to your second question, I would strongly recommend reading the thread below on this forum: How do I build backlinks to my site?

    https://forums.digitalpoint.com/threads/how-do-i-build-backlinks-to-my-site.750/

    This topic has been covered many times but it does require time and effort and patience.

    Link building is off-page SEO activity where you have to link your website to several other quality and related websites, the more site you would link to, the higher visibility you would get in search engine.

    However, it should be natural as Google recently changed its algorithm and according to new algorithm your link profile should look natural!

    Press releases are a good way to build links to your site. Services like PR Web can be costly but gets you PR out on a global basis. It allows you to build your back links directly into your content as well. As long as you have great content that's newsworthy or informative the traffic will build nicely. By the way if you're on a budget like many of us, PRLog is worth looking into...it's free

    Link building is creating links to your site on websites that are related to yours. The number of backlinks to your site affects your site's rank. The more positive, quality backlinks to your site, the better. Backlinks also bring traffic to your site, which helps conversion.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    When our clients ask us to define link building, we take great care to explain that it is not the quantity of inbound links to your site that helps you rank well but rather the quality of those links. There are a ton of unethical link building companies out there which employ some pretty shady practices which end up hurting your website instead of helping it.
    Some of these unethical methods include:
    • Automated spam responses to blog posts.
    • Spamming all sorts of web forums with bogus responses that include links to your site.
    • Creating websites solely for the purpose of linking to other sites. These are sometimes referred to as “spam directories.”
    The search engines are far more sophisticated than they once were and are engineered to sniff out these and other ‘black hat’ SEO practices. If the search engine crawlers determine that a site has employed unethical link building practices to achieve a higher ranking, they will penalize your site severely and irrevocably bury your site making it almost impossible to find through the search engines.
    Only permanent, relevant links from established sites that engage in ethical link building practices will help your site achieve better rankings with the major search engines and drive targeted traffic to your site. Link building is a key facet of any successful Internet marketing strategy because if your site features relevant, factual information that is written well, the administrators of other websites will want to link to your site because it offers their readers something of interest and value.
    There are no shortcuts in a successful link building campaign and even when it is done properly, you should not expect to reap the benefits of link building overnight. Patience and persistence are the keys because it can take time to build links from credible sources. While link building is a key element of an Internet marketing strategy, link building alone will not help your site achieve its natural ranking with the search engines. Only if link building is incorporated in a

    With the link building methods methioned above you will getting diversity by impelementing a variety of them, but what I have discovered from my personal tests is that getting social links from facebook, twitter and G+ helps to increase your ranking dramatically. Do not over do it by getting hundreds of links at a time, just get a couple to start with and you will see the serp improvement. You can try fiverr if you like.

    Hope this helps.
