Link building guide for beginnersWritten/updated by Thomas Skov Iversen
Link building is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting a high search engine rank. But why is getting a high rank on search engines so important? A high rank equals a top(or high) position in search results. The further you are to the top, the more traffic(visitors) you will be generating. And if your are trying to profit from your site, then large amounts of traffic is what you want!
So why are links so important?
Imagine that a link is a vote. Every link from an external website to your website will tell the search engines that your content is valuable to other people. That link will consequently count as a vote for your site - The more votes it gets the more valuable your site becomes in the eyes of other people, and search engines will as a result also rank your site higher!
Other factors evidently exist, but since this is a beginners guide to link building I will keep it simple and not get into those here. With that in mind, try to build links matching the factors mentioned above. In the end, you will always benefit from choosing relevant and strong sites, instead of spreading your links randomly all over the internet.
