It’s no secret that link building remains an important part of the off-site SEO puzzle.
Whether you’re new to link building or have been doing it for a while, you need to understand that the process of link building has changed. Google doesn’t embrace just stuffing your website with some garbage backlinks and expect to get away with it. NO!
Sincerely, it used to be all about natural links but in recent times, Google has introduced an algorithm update – the Google Penguin.
The links that you build to your website tell the search engines what the page is going to be about. Of course, only quality links. Each backlink created can also be counted as a vote in favor of your website.
You need to acquire as many backlinks as possible to outrank your competitors in SERPs for your selected keywords.
Backlinks from trustworthy and high-authority sites are considered the best to earn, as backlinks from low-authority are potential spammy links.
*What is Link Building?
Link building is simply the process of acquiring links from other websites to your own.
Specifically, each quality link (for example, from an authoritative site) to your website counts as a vote for you. This means that your webpages have more chance of being crawled by google and other search engine bots.
Additionally, the keyword you wish to rank for will rank faster on Google search engine results page (SERPs) than your competitors’. If you don’t have any quality links to your website, then this will make it difficult to achieve.
When asked about the ranking factors that Google takes into account, Andrey Lipattsev, a Search Quality Senior Strategist at Google, affirmatively said:
“I can tell you what they are. It is content. And it’s links pointing to your site.”
The Google algorithm update in April 2012, Penguin – was introduced to punish sites that manipulate the SERPs falsely. As Danny Sullivan listed in his article “Google Launches ‘Penguin Update’ Targeting Webspam In Search Results” (2012), manipulations include keyword stuffing, cloaking, malicious duplicated content, and link schemes.
In early 2017, Google announced that Penguin has become part of the core search engine ranking algorithm. In fact, between 2012 to 2016, it impacted 3.1% of English-language search engine queries and filtered many websites from the SERPs.
How does Penguin work then?
Since 2012 till now, its major focus has been on unnatural links – checking the authority of your links. What Penguin checks really are where the links are posted, how they’re posted, value and relevance to the visitors of your site.

*What’s the Value of Link Building for Your Website?
Over the years, one of the most common struggles for small businesses is the inability to build quality links to their websites. Many of them still use the old-school strategies of link building that have been cracked by Google, and they get no leads.
Indeed, a website without quality links can never rank for a keyword on search engines.
For your website to yield leads and sales, it depends completely on the value of the links you get. And, link authority determines their value!
By recent statistics, the link popularity of websites accounts for 22.33% of the elements of Google ranking algorithm.
Beyond just generating traffic to your website, Link building has a lot more benefits. Improving your website’s authority and value can as well help in the following ways:
Brand and Content Visibility: Building more links on more authoritative sources means you’ll increase your brand’s visibility. At the same time, it increases the visibility of the contents on your website as your ranking on Google will increase. This will create more leads to your site. A potential customer who searches online for a business in your niche will have a better chance of going to you, rather than to your competitor.
It helps in sending Referral Traffic: One of the greatest benefits of link building is the generation of referral traffic. Getting quality traffic is far better than getting traffic that’s not relevant to your business. Undoubtedly, everyone agrees that quality pays off than just quantity.
Link building leads the right target of customers to your business. And as a result of this, you have a better chance of sales than your competitors. In this instance, link building isn’t just about SEO – it’s about customers.
It builds your brand: You can use your affiliations with high-authority links to boost your brand reputation as someone that can be trusted. The goal is solely to associate yourself with names the public already recognize. And this helps create an immediate trust by showing off how you’ve been featured on these top-level publishers.
In fact, creating quality contents are the fastest way to link these top-level publishers – like Forbes and Huffington Post.
It helps create ongoing return: link building has the power to generate ongoing returns. The links you build are almost always permanent. Of course, a publisher can delete you’re your link, but the authority already built from those backlinks is accumulative. After a few months of consistent effort link building will eventually reward you.
Building quality relationships: effective link building an often involve an outreach to other relevant blogs and websites in your industry. This outreach usually involves a promotional need of a something you’ve just created, for example, an infographic placement. Outreach can help establish long-term quality relationships with key influencers in your niche, which equally create a trust notion on your customers. Link building surly helps to expand your network and it generates advocates for your business.
