Guide Backlinks


New member
A backlink is a link placed within an area of another website as a hyperlink to your website. The purpose of this is to simulate a "buzz" inside of the search engines about your website. For your website, you want a diverse link portfolio. That means that your website should have links from multiple sources.

Backlinks should also be tiered. What that means is:

A 1st tier backlink (tier 1) points directly to your website with a hyperlink and should be from a high metrics domain. (Facebook/Twitter/Other Web 2.0s/Strong Guest Blog with high metric).

A 2nd tier backlink (tier 2) points to your tier 1 backlink.

An example of a backlink is:


This is a straight link to a Youtube video placed on a Tumblr blog. Be sure to use anchor text when placing backlinks to your money site. Make sure to use multiple types of anchor text as well.
