Shenzhen, China (PressExposure) July 31, 2009 -- Also called inbound links by some people, backlinks are links on one website that lead back to another website. In the search engine optimization world, the number of backlinks is one of the important standards to judge the popularity and importance of a website. If a website gets lots of high quality, relevant and high PR backlinks, it surely have a good position on the Search Engines and is more likely to be visited by others.
Backlinks are not hard to get, but the relevance is very important. If you do wholesale electronics [http://www.actfind.com/] business, getting backlinks about electronics and business is more helpful than you get some irrelevant websites like apparels or jewelry.
There are lots of ways to get such kind of links. The most common used is article marketing. Firstly write articles, you could make your keyword as anchor text in your content. Then post on different blogs, like wordpress.com and blo9s.com, releases such as myfreepr.com and PageRelease.com and articles websites, for example, ezinearticles.com and articlecity.com.
The next way is to write comments on blogs and forums. There are so many bloggers on the internet, you could find huge source. And every comment you leave on another blog site will count as a backlink to your own sites. Remember to write high quality and unique comments. Google bots and readers have no interest in comments which just express their likes and dislikes, or just say the same as others.
The third way is to ask or answer questions in Q&A websites like answers.yahoo.com and wiki.answers.com. Don't ask silly question, answer in a silly way, or ads-alike Q&A - that is easily refused by the administrator.
The fourth is to submit your site to different directories. The most popular directories are DMOZ and Yahoo. They not only offer some quality backlinks for free, but also make you easily attract the attention of search engines and potential visitors. Be patient to wait the result, as directories accepting might take several months.
The fifth is to exchange links with your business or cooperating partners. Ask them politely if they could give you a link or promise to give a link to him/her if he/she agrees to give. But remember to stay away from link farms - these websites have no valuable content, if you link to them, your website has the risk to be banned or be refused to accepted by search engines.
All those ways are very easy to use. And they are capable of helping you promote your website in the search engines, lure visitors, raise the rank of your keywords, increase your website PR rank and Alexa rank.
