Quality content + quality backlinks = TONS of free web traffic(visitors) from Google, and that means money in your bank account.
Lots of it.
It’s faaaar from a “get rich quick” thing, it’s actual work but it pays very well when you know what to do.
But when you hear or read of terms like”backlinks”, “SEO”, and “Search Engine Optimizing”, what does it mean to you?
Does this stuff make you scratch your head and wonder, “what the heck?” Don’t worry, if you’re a bit confused, you are not alone. Most average “civilians” have no clue about the world you and I exist in.
A few years back, I was totally lost too and even now there is constantly new information and new things to learn about backlinking and SEO.
Because of that, this Backlink Checker SEO website was born. The tips and information I want to share with you will help you avoid some of the pitfalls I fell into when I started out, hopefully you’ll learn from my mistakes and benefit from my successes.
If you own websites that need more traffic, knowledge of SEO is your businesses lifeblood.
Why? Because knowledge of Search Engine Optimizing means money for you. And your profit defines your businesses success level.
Many people concern themselves too much with what “type” of SEO a person is talking about or teaching. In this industry you will come across the terms “white hat”, “gray hat”, “black hat” and other terms to try and define the methods being used. But here is my view…. You ready??? I don’t wear hats so who cares? ; )
But seriously, in the world of SEO & backlinks you are either doing what it takes to get huge traffic to your sites or you are not. All sides have excuses/reasons for what they do and don’t do.
I’ve done a whole lot of white hat, a little bit of black hat and some gray hat as well. That last sentence will probably be the last time you see me mention any hat colors (call me out if I slip up, haa).
Why not mention it? Simply put, RESULTS SPEAK THE LOUDEST, What I will share with you is WHAT ACTUALLY WORKS for me and my peers in this business. Whether these tactics are loved or hated in the realm of popular opinion doesn’t matter when it’s time to cash checks.
These techniques are proven by results. Anyone reading this can take it or leave it, but production trumps opinion everyday of the week for me.
YOU WILL LEARN THE BASICS
Because this stuff can be confusing I will explain many basic principles and really try to break it down for you. Subjects like —What are “backlinks”?— The Search Engines place a ton of importance on the number and variety of backlinks that a website has streaming towards it.
You can think of a backlink to your website as a vote in a popularity contest. For example, when Google describes their PageRank system, Google tells us that they interpret a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. So at a VERY basic level, this is a popularity contest.
You will also learn that WHO votes for you in the popularity contest matters alot too and you will learn techniques to get those votes/backlinks that help the most.
Google likes the popular kid. Who knew that getting into the business of marketing sites would takes us back to High School again? But this is what backlinking and SEO(Search Engine Optimization) really boils down to. How popular your site is with other sites and does deserve to be at the head of the class.
You can’t just build a website, and then expect that people will find your website without pointing the way, you must get backlinks. Backlinks are extremely important in regards to Search Engine Optimization, backlinking for your websites is as important as oxygen is to humans.
Backlinks are BY FAR one of the most important aspects of your current or future websites traffic pumping lifeblood.
YOU WILL LEARN THE TOUGH STUFF TOO
Know anything about algorithmic changes or Google Panda Updates? If you do, great! If you don’t, don’t pass out and don’t worry I’ll help you!
In learning the Internet marketing strategy of SEO you’ll find that it involves understanding how the Search Engines function, studying algorithm trends, knowing what people search for, finding the actual keyword terms typed into Search Engines and which Search Engines are preferred by your targeted audience.
Optimizing a website for the search engines often involves editing your sites written content and HTML and associated coding to both improve its relevance to specific targeted keywords and to remove things from your website that could make it more difficult to get your site indexed with Google and the rest.
SEO techniques can be incorporated into your website design and development as well and you will learn all of those things right here at Backlink Checker SEO.
You may have noticed that when researching site-building products you will often see the term “Search Engine friendly” when referring to website designs, menus, content management systems, shopping carts, videos, images, and other elements that have been optimized for the reason of Search Engine exposure.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has so many different angles to it and you will learn them quickly if you are willing.
In general SEO is the process of improving the visibility of your website in the Search Engines by way of the “organic”(unpaid) search results as opposed to paying for website exposure through ads. (I purposefully always capitalize the words “Search Engine(s)”, to emphasize their all-importance in the backlinking and SEO game.)
The free Search Engines can be an over-flowing money faucet for you once you understand and master them. The higher in the SERPs (Search Engine Ranking Positions) you rank and establish your website, the more free and highly-targeted visitors your site will receive.
When you get the traffic then you can make sales of whatever you choose, whether it be clothing goods or pizza hut coupon codes, it’s up to you.
Highly-targeted visitors in large numbers is money in the bank Frank! (I apologize, I know your name probably isn’t Frank, but it rhymed and I couldn’t resist : )
Anyway, some of the more difficult aspects of SEO that I will explain to you is how you can target different types of search, including image search, video search, local search, news search and industry-specific vertical Search Engines. All of these things can and will increase your website’s net presence and ability to profit.
You will also learn what is considered a quality backlink. This is important because when Google and the other Search Engines determine the relevance of your site and to a specific keyword, the number of quality inbound links to your site carries a lot of more weight than those that aren’t relevant to your site’s theme.
CLEARING MYTHS AND GETTING TO THE TRUTH
When I first started in this business I wish I had found a site like Backlink Checker SEO. Why? Because there are so many myths that are spread as gospel, but are simply untrue. I wasted alot of time, and actually slowed myself from making good money until I saw the myths for what they were. Absolute falsehood.
That’s why on the pages of Backlink Checker SEO I will dispel the myths share the TRUTH about SEO. Want an example?
Here’s a doozy… Myth #1 “It’s impossible to hurt your website through backlinking.”
The Truth: Yes you can, it has been done before and it will happen in the future and that’s why I will show you how to create backlinks that won’t hurt you but will help your website traffic jump like crazy.
Back in the days before Panda and Penguin(Google Algorithm Updates) You would have heard me in the large group of webmasters screaming ..
“NO INCOMING BACKLINK CAN DO YOUR SITE HARM… EVER! One more time for emphasis… NO INCOMING BACKLINK CAN EVER, EVER DO YOUR WEBSITE A SINGLE BIT OF HARM OR CAUSE ANY TYPE OF PENALTY!”
And we were correct AT THAT TIME. But now… If you don’t know what you are doing, or use the right products you could seriously screw yourself.
But if you are thinking about avoiding backlinking I will politely ask you to smack yourself. That’s exactly the way to not control your website’s destiny and profit potential.
Creating quality and consistent backlinks is as important now as EVER and it will continue to be, Google is catching and killing the sloppy and unprofessional. Period.
As my mother used to say “If you knew better, you’d do better”, she was 100% right.
The way that many people have screwed themselves over is by creating backlinks that were obviously spam or by creating only one type of backlink and creating an unnatural backlink pattern that Google can EASILY sniff out.(Nothin’ but forum signatures or spammy comments for example.)
Google has done a great job at discouraging backlinking tactics, which is both good and bad. It’s good for those who study the art of backlinking and know the value of continuing to build them safely and CONSISTENTLY. It’s bad for the layman webmaster, because they will be scared to do what it takes to have success.
I will be sure to share with you the advance SEO tactics that work for me and other SEO junkies, this stuff is fun for me and I want to share it with you.
Throughout this site you will find more Myths vs Truths that I’ve learned within the industry, you will also…
FIND SEO TOOL REVIEWS AND OTHER HELPFUL SITES TO CHECK OUT
As with any trade you choose to perform, you will always find tools that make your job easier. It’s the exact same with SEO. That’s why I’ll share with you some of my favorite SEO websites to visit for information and some of my favorite and most useful webtools to use.
Throughout my site you will find honest reviews of products and tools that I myself use or have used in the past. For better or for worse.
For instance, any SEOer worth his/her own salt knows the importance of keeping track of their sites incoming backlinks as well as spying on their competitors’ incoming backlinks.
It is vital to know which websites are linking back to yours and it’s equally important to know where you competition is getting their backlinks from so that you can also go and try to obtain backlinks from those same sites and more.
The Golden Rule of backlinking goes “match your competitors backlinks, plus one.”
SEOMOZ is a great Internet Marketing website that I found very useful when I began learning this craft, they have tons of information about Search Engine Optimization and backlink checker tool Open Site Explorer is one of the most respected on the market for serious SEO people, you can even check it out on Youtube.
Their backlink checker tool displays the backlinks of a domain in Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
It will show you details about your website, like your listings in the Open Directory, or DMOZ, from which Google regards backlinks highly important, your site’s Alexa traffic ranking, how many pages from your website are indexed, and so much more.
Another example of an SEO tool that I fell in love with when I learned how to really fire up my backlinking campaigns is The Hoth, they are becoming a HUGE name in the industry.
This backlink service allows you to set up linking projects on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, whatever you prefer. It’s by far one of the most flexible automated tools I have ever used and it eliminated the need for outsourcing from tons of different backlinking services.
It’s been absolutely priceless for me through Panda, Penguin and every other cute animal Google names its website killers after, LOL.
These are just a couple examples, and I will go more in-depth about some of my favorites and even least favorite Search Engine Optimization softwares and tools throughout this site. Just remember that these are only tools and not any kind of magic pill, a tool is only as good as the person using it.
So if you plan on employing these SEO tools as I did, do what I did, learn how to use them effectively. Become a student of proper SEO techniques or you will be wasting time and money.
What good is the world’s greatest drill if you don’t know how to use it? Same principle applies to Search Engine Optimization tools like backlink analyzers, etc.
So it’s important to learn what IS what, and what it DOES before buying anything. I will try my best to teach you these things, I really want Backlink Checker SEO to be one of your go-to sites for Search Engine Optimization tips and knowledge.
You don’t need to be an expert or specialist at SEO, but you do need to know your stuff pretty well to succeed. I can help you get there if you stick around a bit. Deal? : )
