What makes a good Backlink?

SEO Backlink

Have you ever wondered what actually makes a good backlink?

Well, wonder no more! It's a mix of special spices, like KFC, except, not food.

Getting a link from a RELEVANT website makes search engines more likely to trust you're talking about what you're talking about.

The higher the AUTHORITY of the site that is linking to you, the better. Authority is just what it sounds like, are they an authority in their field?

Are the right words linking to you? Ensuring ANCHOR TEXT that is used to link to you is relevant. For instance, If you're talking about planet friendly deodorants - highlight the words "planet friendly deodorant" and turn those in to a link to your web page that is about planet friendly deodorant.

The amount of unique DOMAINS that refer to you also play a huge part. Don't post a thousand things on the same website, scatter it around a bit!
