One of questions that I am asked all the time is related to the best backlinks to get that will really help a site rank higher. This is a question that needs some clarification because there is a lot of misinformation out there.
Let me start by saying that the best links are the “love links”. What are love links? Well, links that are giving to your site because the person linking to you finds the information on your site of great value and wants to share it with his own visitors.
The key to get love links is to have great content on your site, content that anyone and everyone will love to share with others. The content needs to be an authoritative type of content.
What does Google considers authoritative content? The answer is found on Google’s webmaster blog, but to give you some ideas:
It needs to be:
With links to authoritative resources such as wikipedia
Images, Videos, also help
That is some of the things you may want to add to your content, but the most critical factors is to make sure it is unique and in depth information that your visitors will find very useful.
