So what is a backlink?
A backlink is merely a hyperlink from one website to another. For example, if your website has a link on a business web directory site (like the ones below) this creates a backlink. Search engines rank your website using a number of factors, with contextual, local, backlinks (and in some cases the number of) easily being the most important factors in deciding how relevant and significant it is.
You probably already see how important backlinks are to online businesses by the amount of junk you receive through comments on your own website posts (if you haven’t got adequate anti-spam protection in place). All those “opinions” from Viagra and fake LV handbags sellers are an attempt to get their link (backlink) onto your site in order to get search engines to rank them higher.
Put simply- The more quality links pointing back to your site the better.
All of the accounts below need to be created and your business details entered. Now is also a good time to think up any keywords you’d like Google to see and start generating traffic for those locally. Make sure you have all these details at hand in another open document you can simply ‘cut & paste’ from to speed up the submission process.
