This is a backlink. When someone links back your website then it becomes backlink for you. Here, in this example, we have hyperlinked the famous blog of Mr. Neil Patel. Hence, it will become a backlink for his site.
It is just like a list of references appearing at the end of your book. Similarly, online there is an option to hyperlink the list of references appearing in your content.
When you hyperlinked such websites, your content URL will become a backlink for them.
Yes, the more you have the high-quality backlinks, there are higher chances that your site will rank higher in the search engines. Remember, the backlinks are a very important ranking factor for your website.
But, while creating backlinks, a question may arise, What is more important: Quantity or Quality Backlinks?
To get this answer, please read below.
Suppose there are two websites say X and Y.
Website X has 1000 free backlinks (which are of low-quality)
Whereas Website Y has few but very high-quality backlinks (backlinks from websites like Wikipedia, Forbes, Entrepreneur having DA score of 90+)
In this case, which website will rank higher in the search engine?
Confused? No problem, the below paragraphs will answer your confusion.
The short answer to your confusion is ‘Website Y’. Yes, Y will rank higher in the search results.
The long answer to your confusion is as follows.
When it comes to Search Engine Optimization and website ranking, both the quantity and quality backlinks are important.
Quantity Backlinks are required to get your blogpost indexed easily whereas the Quality Backlinks are required to boost your search engine presence.
Let us understand this with an example.
Suppose, you started a new blog and wrote your first blog post on it. Now, of course, this will not appear in the search engine immediately. Right?
To ensure your blog post appears in the search engine results, you need to first get it indexed in the search engine.
The blog post will easily get indexed if it has a good number of backlinks pointing to it.
If more number of sites are linking back to your blog post and then the search engine will easily find your content and will get indexed it.
Next, once your blog post got indexed in the search engine, it may require a quality backlink to boost it’s ranking in the search results.
Here, the role of quality backlinks comes. If your blog post has a good number of high-quality backlinks pointing toward it then it will get easily rank on the first page of the search results.
Hence, both quantity and quality backlinks are important to boost the SEO of your site.
But, here it is also important to note that these backlinks are do-follow backlinks not no-follow.
A Do-Follow backlink is the one that passes the link juice to the destination URL by asking the search engine bot to follow the given link.
Whereas, in the no-follow backlink, the link juice will not get a pass on to the destination URL.
In simple words, a do-follow backlink will ask search engines to consider the given backlink while deciding it’s ranking.
Of course, a do-follow backlink can boost the SEO performance of your website. Hence, you should try to focus on building do-follow backlinks only.
So, the moral of the long story is to build a good number of do-follow backlinks from high authority sites.
