To Know About Bad backlink and Good backlink
Those of you who knows everything about SEO also knows that backlinks are important for better search ranking. Backlinks in the first place is where a site links back to another site. The more the backlinks you have, the better. But of course, there are good links & bad links too. It is important for you to know the good and the bad link to your site. Google considers some of the backlinks as valueless and they are also sometimes considered as poisons to the website’s health. In this article, you will learn to decipher which is the good and the bad links to your site and which you should avoid.
The good links
Google truly loves nature but they do not want to see the internet nature taking its course. They just want the right place on the web and see how people link it naturally without any effort. A perfect example is Wikipedia. When a person search for the word or phrase on the web, Wikipedia will be shown on the number 1 of the page list and more often than not, it will be on the top. Now why does this happen? It’s because a lot of people want to explain the things to the viewers on the web and it will be easier to add up some links to Wikipedia than to go on and explain all the things that users would want to know. But of course, even if you cannot depend much on Wikipedia for a hundred percent information, a lot of people think that they can still get lots of information that they need. This is the reason why Wikipedia gets a lot of backlinks. But though Wikipedia has its own place, Google has made it more powerful when you cannot depend on the search accordingly.
There are really bad backlinks and they can break you and get you into trouble. Did you know that you will suffer from de-indexing? Yes this can happen to you and Google can take all the pages out of the search index. You will have a hard time recovering from this dreadful experience. What you should avoid is the paid linking. This is where you will pay for a service wherein you will place your link on the sites with higher page rank than your site. This may sound alright at first but after a few months or years, Google will eventually withdraw the paid linking and will not allow it because they think that this is just a link for gaming system.
