How does backlink help you gain great traction?

Despite having created great content, why doesn’t your website have traffic? We know this question has been a teasing point when it comes to ‘organic reach’ and visitors.

Writing excellent content is not the gist of your blog. It does help your readers stick to it. However, reaching it matters in the first place. Without SEO, your content may go unseen, unheard, and unread.

We have prepared a list of tactics through which you can get backlinks to your websites in the simplest way.

What is Backlink?

The backlink is one of the essential parts of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It is one of the best strategies to boost your traffic and gain great traction for your website. The backlink means the inbound or incoming links coming from other websites. In simple words, you get links from the greater websites to your newly built website to improve your website’s ranking, organic reach, and domain authority.

Don’t get confused with the internal links you insert to take your readers to another page of your website.

The backlink is a link coming to your website from an outside website with a high domain authority website. It is to be noted that the link can be an image, a text, or a button. The relatability of the backlink website must match your niche.

Why is building backlinks beneficial?

Creating great content with visuals and writing it with hard work isn’t everything and won’t pay you off. Without SEO formatting, your blog will be lost in the crowds of many. It’s like you have prepared your mindset to fight and even stand on the battlefield but without warfare, ammunition and tactics.

Commenting on others blogs

It is one of the easiest ways to build a backlink. However, it takes time, and your interaction is highly required.

Create your presence and brand recognition on all social media sites. Leave good comments on others’ blogs and content that will help you create your brand recognition, foster links and healthy relations with the owner of other websites. You may ask for exchange links later. But don’t give the impression that commenting is the sole purpose of shoehorning a link to your website only.

Guest Posts

There are many well-established and high-domain websites that allow guest posts. Guest post means to write for other websites that have high domain authority. Many website owners will allow you to add one link only. For that, add the link to your best blog rather than the homepage only.

Even Google Analytics blogs also accept guest contributors. There are many websites with millions of visitors, i.e. Mashable, HuffingtonPost, outbrain, Investopedia, and many others, but make sure to match relevancy and follow their guidelines. Don’t depend on one, keep pitching.
