Gone are the days when building high volume of work without paying importance on quality was considered ok. But with increasing competition building low-quality link strategies are no longer an ‘in-thing’, resulting in SEO marketers focusing considerably on quality over quantity for building their site links.
- Many search engines such as Google are paying huge importance on quality for content. Thisincludes links that lead to site content to be of excellent quality and will yield positive response and results to link building campaigns.

- Additionally, Google is not bothered about the source of the content as long as it has a strong PR which is relevant to the tastes & interest of the users – the source maybe blogs, article links, any site wide link, etc.
- Also links coming from irrelevant sites should not be considered at all.
- Links that lead to spam or resemble spams or sites that are over-advertised should be avoided.
- The best way to get access for a post in the Panda World is to post views as guests and also submit opinions for blogs.
- New content is always in demand by blog owners for their sites and to reach them, it’s necessary to post opinions as a guest writer by including a back link of the site. This will always be welcomed by blog owners.
Create your own Authority Site

- After creating high quality site content – several small and free web 2.0 sites can be created with a strong & powerful PR. Blog posts which are linked to social media links or any other new web 2.0 blogs – will ensure tremendous improvement of SERPS.
- Majority of bloggers around the world provide a link to their homepage to encourage comments and guest posts. But giving preference to internal pages will increase the interest of their blogs.
- Providing links to categories that are doing extremely well on the search engine is a good & safe option when enough trafficking is not generated from search engines.

- It’s advisable to use terms, including “click here” or “visit now” to gather interest of non-SEO internet users to the website link.
- There is numerous online software’s, which was earlier very successful when launched but now most of them are spams.
- Just in case even if 15% of links enter the spammed pages either automatically or manually – Google will automatically flag it as a spam website and it will be impossible to recover from that.
