How important are backlinks for a successful blog?


I've started a " Free Backlinks for Your Website" Movement. I've promoted it to many bloggers. But, some of them still facing some difficulties in understanding the purpose of the movement. So, I wrote an article about the importance of backlinks for a succesful blog or website.

1. How important are backlinks for a successful blog?

Backlinks are basically how you are connected to the other blogs or somebody else add your blog to their blog. Backlinks are considered to be the successful formula to get high ranking on the search engines, that is the reason why the new bloggers read the importance of backlinks on the internet and strart looking for link exchange programs.

I find them to be VERY important especially if they are used correctly. To correctly use backlinks, IMO they need to be targeted and from high traffic / high PR websites.

Doing this will give you a steady flow of targeted quality traffic. This will help lower your bounce rate greatly, and increase pageviews, sales, and overall income.

2. How to check backlinks to your website?

There are various free tools available on the internet, Google doesn’t provide much details about backlinks, but Yahoo is considered to be the best and authentic in terms of sharing backlinks of your blog or website.

More quality backlinks you have to your website or blog,more is your ranking on the websphere resulting in getting more pages indexed and more visitors to your site.

3. External website article

And I found an external website article to explain to you all about importance of Back Links.

When setting up your website for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on Google there are several factors you need to look at in order to obtain a high rank on their search engine. Of course your content and meta tags must be inline with positive density percentages and reciprocal links. Google then takes your website and performs a mathematic equation and places a numeric value on your website depending on one of the most important features, reciprocal or back links.

A back link and reciprocal link are identical. They both say the same thing to the Google engine, that your site should be ranked higher in the order because other people find value in what your website has to offer, thus they provide a link to your site. In turn, you keep a closed loop by reciprocating the favor to the other website by extending the same courtesy of a back link. Thus creating a solid network connection. Google likes to see interconnectivity and will reward your website well for planning it this way.

There are drawbacks to the equation. As things change a website that you are affiliated with may drop a hyperlink or a page may get accidentally deleted. When the Google robot goes through your website and finds a dead link it notes that you aren’t keeping good care of your website and punishes your web rank by reducing its point value. If you wish to know what your sites current point value is download The Google Toolbar and search for your website www.yourwebsitename.com in the box and perform a Google web search. Upon reading the full URL, Google will go directly to your site first thus pulling up your home page. There on the toolbar will be a page rank for your website between 1 and 10. 1 being a less visited and noted website and 10 a site that screams traffic 24/7.

Some of the individuals you share reciprocal links with may in fact scan all their links for continuity, should they receive a bounce back for a broken link on your website you can be assured you will receive an email from them. Keeping your website in balance with other sites you share links with will keep the Google engine happy. If you go off and add a company that is not Google friendly, meaning they have no back links you may also lose points.
