what is backlinks and importance of backlinks in seo
What are backlinks?
A “backlink” is a link from an external website to your site. Until a few years ago, backlinks were the most important factor for search engine results page (SERP) ranking of your website. However, post the recent Google algorithm updates, including Penguin, the significance of backlinks has reduced considerably.
Importance of relevant backlinks
Backlinks can help improve your SEO rankings only if they are of high quality. For example, for a photography blog, a backlink from a photography institute website is relevant whereas a backlink from a site selling furniture can adversely impact the SEO rankings. Do not get backlinks from spam sites, harvested sites or paid sites – purchasing hundreds of backlinks will not improve your SERP ranking overnight. Moreover, Google places greater emphasis on links from high-domain authority sites related to your business.

How to get relevant backlinks
1. Create top-quality content that is relevant to your target audience. This will increase the number of followers, who will share your content on social media channels like reddit,fb,twitter ,linkedin
2. Write guest blogs on top forums/blogs.
3. Find influencers in your domain and ask them to review your products on their site.
4. Leverage Q&A sites like Quora, Stack exchange to generate traffic to your website. Commenting on such sites will also help you engage with your prospective customers and increase brand awareness.

Afaq, you buried your post.

I'll clean off the links as that would make this spam but you should post such in SEO forums. Here folk have pretty much given generic answers and posts with such links are 99% of the time just spam.

I'll lock this old thread as it's run its course.
