How to Get Quality Backlinks

Introduction

Backlinks, also known as Inbound Links, inbound links, inlinks, and backlinks, are incoming links to a website or web page. In basic link terminology, a backlink is any link received by a web node (web page, directory, website or top level domain) from another web node.

Benefits of Backlinks

Backlinks are needed by blogs or the web because of the many benefits they get, such as:

  • Increase Blog / Web Position On SERP
  • What are SERPs? SERP stands for Search Engine Result Pages. Understanding Serp is a page that contains search results from a keyword on a search engine. So backlinks will be very helpful to increase the position of your blog or website on search engines.
  • Defending the Serp posisi position
  • After successfully increasing the position of your blog or website, the backlink will now be used to maintain the position we have achieved on search engines.
  • Increase the Number of Blog / Web Visitors
  • With the better position of your blog or website on search engines, it will automatically increase the number of visitors to your website or blog.

Backlink Losses

In addition to the very important benefits for the development of a blog or website, backlinks also have disadvantages that can seriously harm a blog or website, including:

  • Too many links are considered SPAM on search engines
  • Make it possible for Backlink error (404) to occur

How to Get Quality Backlinks

There are several ways to build quality backlinks for your blog or website, including:

  • Social Media Backlink

Backlinks from social media sites are high-quality backlinks, for example backlinks from Twitter, Facebook, Google plus and other social media sites. Of course the search engines will take that into account. In addition to backlinks, of course, we will also get visitors or followers from these media sites. So we recommend that the website that we have must have its own social media account. In addition, with the number of friends or followers, our website will be more famous and of course we must be active on these social media sites.

  • Web 2.0 Backlinks

In addition to creating a blog for free, Web 2.0 is also often used for backlinks building activities. And of course backlinks from Web 2.0 are very effective in our SEO activities because on average Web 2.0 is a high authority in search engines, in other words Web 2.0 is trusted by search engines. Examples of web 2.0 are blogs (WordPress, Blogger, Dagdigdug), family wikis (Wikipedia, Wikimapia, etc.), social-networking sites (Facebook, Friendster, Multiply), and similar sites.

  • Backlink Forum

Currently, there are many forums that we can find on the internet, ranging from forums for gamers, publishers, to forums for entrepreneurs. One of the very famous forums is kaskus.co.id, various topics are discussed in this forum. Besides kaskus.co.id, a very well-known forum is ads-id, which is a forum for publishers in Indonesia.

  • Article Directory Backlink

Article directories are often used for marketing activities and building backlinks. We can build backlinks from article directory sites by creating quality articles and then submitting them to article directory sites.

  • Blogwalking Backlink

Blogwalking is an activity to visit other blogs and then leave comments and we can leave our website URL on the comments page. There are 2 advantages of blogwalking activities, the first is that we get backlinks, and the second is direct visits from blog owners and other people who comment on the blog. What is very important for us to remember is to provide good comments and not carelessly so as not to be considered spam by blog owners. Before leaving a comment, you should read the article on the blog, then provide comments that are related to the article. Don’t give original comments.

  • Social Bookmarking Backlink

The initial idea of ​​social bookmarking sites is to make it easier for users to save URLs or links from sites they like so that they are easy to find when they want to reopen. In its development, social bookmarking sites are widely used by SEO actors to help popularize a website page in search engines. Search engines such as Google also explore these social bookmarking pages to find out which web pages are often stored by internet users and of course this will affect search results on these search engines.

ORIGAMY: Synthetic Biology Fiction

So I’m a bunch of the way through Rachel Armstrong’s ORIGAMY now, and here’s the thing:

There’s a field of rogue mutant hair transplants, and the hair field is grazed upon by a trip of transgenic goats, and there’s like five pages on the digestive processes of these goats, including shoals of microsquid that live in one of the four stomachs. And it’s brilliant.

If you’re not up for that: the book is about people who use chopsticks to tie knots in spacetime for travel purposes. And art.

Rachel is a synthetic biologist — I met her at a think-tank in Eindhoven a few years ago — and ORIGAMY is what happens when you let a synthetic biologist write a full work of speculative fiction. Possibly this practice will be banned after ORIGAMY is released.

It’s an incredibly dense piece of bizarre fantastika balanced artfully on a very simple structure, a journey of discovery, secrets and ancient threats. Parts feel like they’ve come from fable, or folk tales about strange circus people. In reading it, I’ve gotten through about ten pages at a time before having to stop and stare into space and process everything that’s just been dumped into my head. It’s like she freebased twelve novels into one intense concentrated rock.

ORIGAMY is a magnificent, glittering explosion of a book: a meditation on creation, the poetry of science and the insane beauty of everything. You’re going to need this.

It comes out on April 3 2018, and, afterwards, there will only be people who have read ORIGAMY and people who have not, and neither of them will be able to understand the other.

You can pre-order it direct from the publisher here, or through Amazon (UK) (US).

 

Reblog, Or: Little Radio Stations In The Night

On my newsletter last weekend, I wrote this:

Sometimes I wonder what it’d be like to go full-bore blog again, like in the old days. Twitter’s only real use is as a notification system, after all, so you’d just pump out post links to it from your blog.  You know, the way people used to, when having a place for your own voice and your own thoughts was a good thing.

When I was in the swing of it, way back when, it was like the world’s most minimalist radio station. A Station Ident post to start the day, a Night Music or Closedown post at the end of the day, littered with whatever strangeness and wonder passed my screen in between.

I miss that long moment when the web seemed full of people doing the same thing, or thinking in public.  It happens in the Republic Of Newsletters, now. But it was nice to have all those little radio stations broadcasting in the night.

Yesterday, Reza Negarestani emerged with a website called Toy Philosophy, whose first post was entitled Returning to the Age of Blogging.

Now, my RSS feeds never went quiet.  I linked to a friend’s blog post the other day and he told me half the reason he posted it was to see if anyone was still using RSS!

I’ve seen the idea circulating for a while: come off the streams, own your own platform for your own voice and your own complete statements.  It seems like a reactionary step, from some angles. But maybe that great river, The Conversation, was, like every river followed to its source, a dead end. The resurgence of the Republic Of Newsletters may be one aspect of a return to the ocean, dotted with little pirate radio stations broadcasting through the night again.
