Is your business on a mission to constantly create quality backlinks? If not, you really need to make sure you get on it as soon as possible. It’s all about building prominence in both your industry and Google itself.
As Google shares, prominence is based on “information that Google has about a business, from across the web, like links, articles, and directories.”
The idea of creating backlinks is important for SEO since they signal to Google that another resource has found your content valuable enough to create a link in their own content that leads to your website.
But what are some ways you can create not only some backlinks, but some quality ones.
According to Ryan Weber, over at Search Engine Journal, here are 12 ways you can go about creating quality backlinks:
- Ask to guest blog
