Diversify Your Link Building Efforts

Organic SEO requires good link building. If you don’t get high-quality links – almost every month – search engines will eventually forget about your site and send relevant traffic to your competitors. That’s common SEO knowledge. However, not all link building is equal. You can consistently build links to your site, and get crushed on a whimsical Google update just because. That’s one reason to diversify your links. “Link diversity” or getting different types of links is crucial to long-term SEO success. In the long run, getting different kinds of links is much better than getting one kind of link back to your site.

The Anatomy of a Good SEO Link

Links are the #1 ranking factor for search engines. Not saying that onsite ranking factors don’t matter. It’s just that links matter more. You can thank Google for that. Google popularized the importance of links with their original PageRank algorithm. Back in 19-whatever, a couple of students holed-up in grad school decided most search engines weren’t good enough. They thought links were the better way to rank webpages in a search result. Simply put, each link to a web page would vote for that page in a search result. The page with the most votes (read: links) wins.

This tactic has been going on almost as long as paid links themselves.
