Backlinks for SEO are like votes in an election
except not all links are created equal…
Here’s a quick summary of different types of links and how to use them effectively.
Building backlinks for SEO used to be very very simple.
1) You take the URL of a web page
2) Put it on another webpage on another website
3) Create an active hyperlink directly to the page you want rank for
But over the years, SEO has grown in its popularity as a way to drive traffic on a ongoing basis, causing the algorithm to rank high in search results to change rapidly, to become increasingly complex and to become much harder to predict.
While backlinks for SEO still means linking from web pages on others’ sites to yours, the manner with which we direct these links is critical to our success in ranking high in SERP.
And of course, this applies to any niche you’re targeting whether it’s network marketing or something else because SEO is SEO… the search algorithms don’t change.
Let me break down the different types of backlinks for SEO and suggest a few ways to use them to maximize results.
Before I do that, I must state the 3 Golden Rules of backlinks for SEO
In one swoop, this means to rank well in search engines you need a constant volume of a variety of backlinks of various quality (you want more higher quality backlinks for sure) over a period of time until the desired ranking is reached and stabilized.
Now that the general goal is defined… let’s talk about what type of backlinks there are for SEO.
Here are 4 “grades” of backlinks for SEO to consider:
1. “Crappy/Sh*tty” backlinks (e.g. links from PR 0 sites of any sort… blog comments… social bookmarks)
2. “So-so/Meh” backlinks (e.g. PR1+ links from forum profiles, etc.)
3. “Good/Aight” backlinks (e.g. PR1+ links from article directories)
4. “Great/Authority” backlinks (e.g. PR3+ .EDU/.GOV links, Hubpages links)
I can go on and on about other links like social bookmarking and so forth…
But let’s just focus on the more “proven” ones
Keep in mind that SEO is not an exact science.
The video above (which I suggest you watch if you haven’t already) about how to properly use the different link types and a live example of one of my many SEO campaigns (never shared this before until now) and how the different types of links work the real world.
The inspiration came to me after I offered services, as a coin of appreciation to my newsletter subscribers, pretty much at my cost to have my company’s marketing team build backlinks for SEO for the subscribers only.
My inbox was immediately flooded with orders and requests to explain what the different links are.
Hopefully this video and article/report can help ease some of that frustration, and I absolutely recommend that you invest some money to get the pros to build backlinks for SEO for you.
It’ll keep your sanity.
If you want to “rent” my SEO team to do some work for you at an insanely low rate comparing to what SEO companies will charge you… (think $27 instead of $119) right now is the time.
Click here to see our current backlinks for SEO services on my marketing company site (pardon its look. the site is new.)
We’re going to shut down the services next week to re-evaluate whether this is a feasible and sustainable idea for me to offer my subscribers some extra value without decreasing my team’s productivity.
(By the way, this is not some kind of scarcity tactic on our part but if you think it is… kindly get out of my website and unsubscribe from ALL of my lists… NOW.)
Let’s go build some backlinks for SEO!
This is such a great post. Quality, diversity and quantity. I will have to remember that. I’ve found that link building is a pain in the butt, but it can pay huge dividends if you are patient and work it consistently.
I always thought blog comments were good, but I will have to reconsider that strategy. I will spend more time getting backlinks from PR3 or higher sites.
Thanks for this great article. It really helped me out. Nice blog!

Good stuff here, I always like to hear more and more about the SEO monster! Variety is key and of course the better the site, the better the link. I am in complete agreement
Keep up the good work!
