What is Backlink?

In this tutorial the first question and most important question for every beginner what is backlink ? Really want to know about backlink ? Basically backlink is an incoming hyperlink from one web page to another web page Backlinks are incoming links to a webpage. When a web page links to any other page, it’s called a backlink. In the past, backlinks were the major metric for the ranking of a web page. A page with a lot of backlinks tends to rank higher with all major search engines, including Google. So here is a glossary of common terms related to backlinks that you should know

  • Nofollow Link
  • Do-Follow Link
  • Low-Quality Link
  • Internal Link
  • Anchor Text

Nofollow Link

When a website links to another website, but the link has a nofollow tag, that link does not pass the link juice. Nofollow links are not useful concerning the ranking of a page, as they do not contribute anything.  In general, a webmaster uses the nofollow tag when he is linking out to an unreliable site. Example: Links from comments on other blogs.

Do-Follow Link

By default, all the links that you add in a blog post are do-follow links, and these pass the link juice.

Low-Quality Link

Low-quality links are links that come from harvested sites, automated sites, spam sites or even porn sites. Such links do far more harm than good. This is one reason you should be careful when buying backlinks.

Internal Links

Links that are going from one page to another within the same domain are called internal links, and the process itself is referred to as internal linking.

Anchor Text

Text that is used to hyperlink is called anchor text. Anchor text backlinks work great when you are trying to rank for particular keywords.

These are important terms of backlinks you should care about

What makes a good backlink?

Quality backlinks are links that point to your website from another website with higher page authority than your current site. For SEO purposes, it makes no difference (and can actually hurt you) if the sites linking to you are all small, low-page-rank sites. Google is looking to show its customers (the searcher) the best search results possible and one way it does this is by ranking sites by their authority (for more information read our blog article on website popularity). So when you’re looking to add new sites to your backlink strategy, make sure that you select sites that have a higher page rank than your site.
