How to Create Natural Links
Are you looking to build your website and get it to the top of search engines? One way to do that is to use natural links to link back to your website or blog. Read on to learn more about how to use natural links to boost your site’s rankings on search engines.
What are Natural Links?
When someone links your site in a blog post, website, it increases the chances that other users will see the link and thus visit your site. That causes your ranking in Google and other search engines to increase and therefore drive traffic to your site.
But how do you increase your natural links? One way is to spend time reading other blogs and websites and leaving comments with links back to your site. Another way is to share your content on social media, on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
Where Should the Links Take Your Readers?
The best links should take your readers to interesting content that they will find helpful. This can include graphics, articles, videos or any media, so long as it is enriching and engaging.
To effectively make these links work for you, you’ll need to take the time to create the kind of content that captures and keeps an audience’s attention. You can do this in a variety of ways. For example, you can write a timely opinion piece in the middle of a political situation that’s getting a lot of attention. Or, you can write a travel piece about a popular destination, making sure to add your own personal twist so readers will remember your unique voice. You can also mix it up by adding a variety of videos, photos, graphics and articles.
You’ll also need to update your site regularly. Generally, it is recommended to provide new material at least several times a week, if not every day.
What Not to Do
While natural links can be great, unnatural links will hurt more than help. If you try to post your links in sites where they are unrelated or on sites that are poorly designed. These sites are primarily designed for search engine optimization and not for human users to enjoy. Instead, you’ll want to strike a balance between working to boost your ranking while also putting your customer, your reader, first.
