Backlinks are links from a page on one website to another.

If you’re on the receiving end, you can refer to them as incoming links or inbound links. If you’re linking to others, it’s called an external, outgoing or outbound link.

Why are backlinks important? There are three main reasons, and you’ll learn what those reasons are in the video.

The easiest way to conceptualize backlinks is to think of them as votes. When a page receives a backlink, it’s essentially another website vouching for the content on the page. And the more “votes,” you get from credible sources, the higher the trust.

But not all backlinks are created equal.

How do you tell a “good quality backlink” from a “not-so-good” one? You’ll learn how in the video.

And now that you’ve learned how to tell the difference between high and low-quality backlinks, you’ll want to check backlinks pointing at your own site.

We’ll show you the two places you can do this for free.

And finally, how do you get backlinks?

On the whole, there are three main methods to getting backlinks. You’ll learn what they are in the video.

  1. Hey Sam I wanna know something,
    I have been blogging for about 1 year and I have found that some of the websites in my niche is ranking for more keywords that are missing from their blog and Google shows them as "missing terms" in the SERP.
    I want to know is there a way of achieving this or it's just by luck.
    Looking forward to hear from you via reply or it will be best if you make a video on the same topic 🙂

  2. Please don't create crappy videos like this create something valuable you have already did lots of videos about backlinks, create something New like New backlinking strategy

  3. We can create great content for our blog and achieve backlinks from another website, and stay on the top of the SERP. But How can we achieve backlinks for our product or service pages to maintain the ranking position?

  4. Thanks for sharing this video! Very informative. Though I've a question, when you quoted Google patent on the backlink quality, does it means Google's algorithm only care about PageRank (which is defined as URL rating for Ahrefs), instead of Domain rating?

  5. Hey there, great SEO video as always.

    I‘ve got a question: How does this apply to YouTube only?

    In your video you talked about search engines but is it mostly relevant to google or YouTube as well?

    If so, should i backlink individual videos or my whole channel link?


  6. Is it possible for a tech blogger to sustain in SEO. Since you the article you post today will not be searched by anyone in few days. E.g smartphone review. Also the high authoritative websites are dominating in every keywords.
