    How Important Is Link Building

    How important is link building for your blog is what this article will be explaining so that your can up your game in building high quality backlinks to your blog.
    Link Building Definition

    Link building accounts for one the most important part of SEO that you should take very serious if you ever want to see your blog rank top for your target keyword on SERPs. Link building can simply be defined as the act of acquiring backlinks for your site. This inludes both paid and unpaid means of acquiring backlinks.
    How Important Is Link Building For Your Blog
    SEMrush
    Link building is a major part of SEO which cannot be overemphasized .Link building is as important as creating quality contents for your blog. To rank high online you need high quality backlinks pointing to webpages on your site. Say for instance, though I can’t really say this is how Google algorithm works in other to display results to search queries, but if you are serious with keyword research, you will notice that most of the webpages that rank high on Google search result pages all have one thing in common , which is high number of backlinks. It clearly tells us that backlinks are very important for your blog to rank high online and the act of acquiring backlinks is simply termed link building.
    WhyYour Blog Is Not Getting Organic Traffic

    Having a good blog is one thing, getting it out there in front of people is another task you must take very serious. This brings us back to the base discussion, how important is link building for your blog? Even if you have really cool contents , you should also try to broadcast it, that’s simply how you can acquire backlinks to your site. This include submitting your blog post to “social bookmarking sites, social networking sites, forums , related blogs, and any other public directory you can think of. Though some of this sites might have the nofollow tag in the links you submit on their platforms, but certainly their is an increase in your blog authority preference. So if you want to start getting increased organic traffic from search engines , then you should add more effort to your link building strategies.
    Is Link Building Still Important?

    Link building is still very much important for the health of your site and getting more traffic from search engines. Link building determines how well your site ranks for your target keyword on SERPs. If you get high quality backlinks to point to your site , you increase your chance of ranking high on SERPs which will then drive more organic traffic to your blog. So link building is a major decider on how well your site ranks for your target keyword on SERPs.
    Link Building Strategies

    There are tons of link building strategies you can implement right away and see your blog backlinks increase. I will leave that topic for another day, but now I will specify some very common but effective ways to build backlinks to your blog site.One of such ways is broadcasting your site content to social bookmarking and networking sites, commenting on high PR dofollow blogs, posting your contents on high PR forums sites and other directories. Its a two-way profit, you gain backlink and more traffic. The more backlinks you acquire the better your chances of ranking high for your target keyword on SERPs. So why not start your link building campaign by following the above methods and see your backlinks sour higher.

    So how important is link building compared to actual content quality and keyword density? i am asking because i have seen sites with terrible content and obvious problems being really high in the rankings and there couldn't be any other reason for it other than strong link building. Of course that is all useless as those sites must have a pretty high bounce rate. Makes you wonder why there isn't as much emphasis on link building as factors like keyword density and proximity, not that they aren't important, just maybe not as important.
    This website, http://www.sunnydayspets.co.uk/ for example, has decent content and terrible meta titles and descriptions, still it is pretty high in the rankings due to excellent link building.

    Now a days Link-building is not important as people think.last few years ago it was a time to get more link for higher ranking in Google and search engine.Now if you have not strongly modified to your website then we can say link-building will not show you enough positive result on it.If you do on-age perfectly then its may get you more powerful feedback in search engine.

    Link building is important for getting more traffic, but it should be in proper way. Not only give a link, submit an article in related site and then give a link for providing more information. Then it will be perfect and would not harm for ranking your site.

    That's the point in SEO, maybe not being given that much emphasis as it should get, but search engine are doing so. The more backlinks your site gets , the higher your site ranks for your targeted keyword relative to keyword density.

    Link building is the most important factor in SEO ranking as 3 main ranking factors are Content, Links and RankBrain. So don't ignore the importance of quality links when it comes to SEO.

    Link building has been downgraded by google, your links need to be industry related. If you ever bought links you are gonna suffer now.

    Only White Hat Link building strategies are worth the time and money. If you're still using blackhat or greyhat strategies, you can only rank for short period of time and Google will be on your trail. Focus on something that provides you long-term ROI instead of building low quality links.

    Link building is used not only by visitors to get to your website, but it also used by the search engines to discover new web pages and it helps them to rank your website in their results.
    When search engines scans a web page, number of links thta are pointed to that pages is also scaned by it and this part is also added to rating of your website.
    Links creates the Google PageRank which Google used to measure the quality of a website from the part of links pointing to it. Nowadays Google has changed strategy and it penalizes websites which tries to get fake links because earlier many sites were getting fake links to increase their PageRank.

    While the above example provides a general visual understanding of how page rank works and why link building is important, it's very basic. It omits key factors such as: The trust and authority of the linking pages. The SEO and content optimization of the respective sites.

    Link building is important as Google ranks your website according relevance to user. The most important that links to your page would be high quality. By that, I mean, getting backlinks from spam pages do not help their websites to be ranked higher. So it's better to buy a links from trustable portals than from spam pages :)

    The google algorithm includes more than just backlinks. Currently there are 4 very important things to take into account to rank high on google:
    • Use google webmaster tool to select preferred domain
    • HTTP vs HTTPS
    • mobile enabled site vs AMP
    • Enable compression on your website
    Preferred domain need to be applied to the 4 domain possibilities you have e.g. HTTP and HTTPS with or without WWW e.g. your preffered domain can be http: // www . domain . xx or https : // domain . xx. If preferred domain has been selected in Goggle webmaster tool, google tends to collate all links from the different domain possibilities into one single container. This is good for you SERP calculations to gather all link juice to your actual used version of your domain.

    A HTTPS enabled site ranks much higher with the same amount and quality of backlinks in its SERP calculation and AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages (by google)) tend to multiply SERP values by a factor of 3 to 4 when placing websites in search results and lastly compression on your webserver for CSS, JAVA and HTML increases the download time and will influence the value of your site thus rank higher in search.

    Linkbuilding is important but the technical part of your website equally important.

    Good Luck
