DIY SEO: Getting Backlinks

When we think of improving SEO on our websites, a few things always come to mind, and if you do a quick search for DIY SEO marketing, I can almost guarantee you that one of the top things you’ll find, is a recommendation that you’ll need to build your backlink profile.

Backlinks are a huge factor when we’re talking about your website SEO, and one of the most important things to google when it’s figuring out how you should be ranked in their search results.

Backlinks show google that your website is legit, and reputable. If other legit and reputable sites are linking back to yours, then it proves that yours is too!

Okay, now you know how important they are for your SEO marketing, but now you might be wondering… what even are backlinks?

And that’s a great question, that really most people are wondering.

Don’t worry, It’s not as complex as you might think, I promise! In the simplest form, backlinks are simply links on other websites that link back to your website.

That’s it!

It’s not the scary SEO move that a lot of specialists might have you believing. It’s extremely easy to get them yourself, it just takes a little time. But it’s totally worth it.

Makes sense, right?
