Here comes into play this guide. You need to learn HOW TO BUILD QUALITY BACKLINKS, in the right way , the Google’s way.


Let’see The FACTORS wich plays the main role in determining the quality of a backlink:


Right Content


Simply publishing content isn’t going to give you any high quality links

The biggest problem that people have with link building is that they miss great content to share . If you want to succeed with scalable link building, you need quality content that will call for the high PageRank.

The 90/10 rule says that you have to focus 90% of your time on creating valuable content and then on link building.

These are the main content types that tend to generate  links easily:


  • Visual data

Images, Diagrams, Infographics and Charts are very linkable content because you’ll get a link every time someone use your images in his website.So let’s produce some amazing infographics! Here are 3  of the best tools for creating infographics:

Google Charts

  • Lists

You can create a long lists about anything relevant with your site(tricks,tools resources etc..).
This type fo content tends to get a lot of link because it brings a lot of value to visitors who are searching for new resources ,so it’s probable webmasters will link to it.

  • Fresh  studies and statistics

The content that show new data from  your niche studies are like a magnet for backlinks . Everyone need to refer to  statistics and surveys to support their articles.If you succeed in bringing to them the fresh ones , you are going to get tons of links!


  • In-Depth Guide

This is a guide that covers all the aspects of a given topic, a sort of encyclopedia’s article.
this  works specially because it brings practical information and “how-to tutorials” o the users ,that is a lot of value ,the key when it comes to link building.

Pay attention:It’s important to create new content, duplicate content  could backfire penalizing your authority.Beware to not publish the same content on different sites though! .



Authority of the Page

If the page that is linking to you is  very popular and has a high PageRank , then it will give a huge value to your site and its ranking.that’s because Google’s algorithm  still use PR as its basic.
Here they are some PR checker:



Authority of the Site


The domain  authority of the site that links to you is very important.For example: to get a link from Forbes has much more impact than get it from a no-name blog.Here they are some domain authority checkers:

moz ahref

Bulk Domain authority

website seo checker


Relevancy of the Site


The site that link to you must have relevant content with yours . See what Google’s  former member of search quality Andre Weyher said:

“getting a link from a high PageRank page used to always be valuable, today it’s more the relevance of the site’s theme in regards to yours, relevance is the new PageRank.”




You should make sure your link building strategy seems  natural,like the  way people link to websites.If you generate links to new content too quickly, it looks manipulative and that can be a red flag for Google

.Remember that the links in your pages should be beneficial to your visitors first.

To get all the backlinks pointing to your homepage is unnatural too .Make sure to diversify your links in order to look like a natural growth.



Link’s Position


If your backlink is embedded in the body of an article has more value than another one that is in page’s footer or sidebar.

Check if your link is editorially placed : Google puts MUCH more weight on editorially-placed links . They are the backlinks you’ve got from people interested in your content. To put links from spammy sites  will only get your site penalized.



Link Anchor Text


Google uses anchor text to estimate the ranking for a certain keyword. So ,you should use your brand name with other keywords variation when building backlinks.Make sure not to put too much keywords in the anchor text because it has been abused. Today, building lots of exact-match anchor text links is considered spammy.This resource might help in Learning more about anchor text optimization.


Link Co-Citations


Co-citations are the words that  appear near your link . Google uses it also to get what your site is about. So use it !

That tells you that if you want to scale your external link building efforts, you must combine domain relevancy with the right anchor text.


Trust flow


This is a metric introduced by Majestic in order to estimate the quality of backlink. It ranges between 0 and 100, so If most of your backlinks come from sites with high trust flow metrics, your SEO rankings will improve, getting also an high organic search traffic .

Verify the Trust flow of your backlinks using Majestic . Input the root domain into the box and click the search icon.



Citation flow


This metric, from Majesticit too, doesn’t measure the quality of inbound links, but their quantity. At this point ,we know that quality is much more important in link building. So, you can  use it with trust flow metric to discover the websites  both trusted and influential.


Link From a Guest Post


A few years ago,Matt Cutts, Former Head of Google’s Webspam Team Google ,said that  guest blogging was just gotten too spammy.
That’s means Google will  probably penalize your guest post. However, this usually happen if the hosting  site has not relevance with yours or if it’s got paid for posting.
But ,if success in  guest posting on an authoritative, relevant site , you can really boost your rankings.



Site organization


Google ‘s statement says clearly that it the organization of the information matters. Make sure that your site is easy to navigate, so that search engines and  people can find  useful and relevant information.

 So ,as we’ve seen links are not all equals , you have to be careful when starting a new link building campaign. 

Remember :nowadays , after the Penguin’s era,  link building is about what people want,, and about the value that they will get when they land on the referred page .


We have reached the end of this guide’s first part :
