Websites and online businesses today basically run through search engine hits. The difference between a popular website getting millions of hits per day and an normal website could primarily be attributed to the search engine presence of that website.
Having an adequate amount incoming links ‘fronting’ to your site, could set the difference for your website’s presence amidst the top search results or showing no such presence at all for any given keyword. The more popular your incoming link is, the more popular you are to the search engines. The more number of times your website is linked back, the higher the chances of your website being shown in the top search results grouping for your key term.
Pages that are linked to by many thousands or perhaps millions of pages (URLs) are deemed ‘Juicy’, which is superior or important and thus, when they also link to other pages, those pages (URLs) must, by association, also have immense weight.
However, being steady and patient in the total link building process is considered pivotal to improving your website’s presence within search engines. It must be noted that Search engines such as Google recommend that webmasters solicit relevant links to their sites (conduct a link campaign), but avoid participating in ‘link farms’.
According to Google, a site that participates in a ‘link farm’ may have its search rankings penalized. Links from related sites carry more weight than those from irrelevant sites, and the best practice is still considered as the manual way of exchanging links with other websites or the addition of your site to non automated human edited directories or sites(pages) and not the expeditive building of links. Linking building in a rapid manner could blotch your website to the search engines as Google and instead of having a strong presence your website might end up as blacklisted.
