Best SEO practices for backlinks

Agili Ron

Hello Friends,

I've read tons of threads, watched youtube videos, and skimmed through e-books. I still have a few very noob questions that I haven't picked up on yet. I own a small Hemp Jewelry company. I've began targeting the keyword "hemp bracelets" but the dominant keyword used on-page is "Hemp Bracelet" sure I could use that, but that's where I'm having trouble.. how can I create anchor texts using a singular word when the plural word is the only thing that makes sense in context. Also, do backlinks not always appear in directories? I've used Market Samurai, ahrefs, checkbacklinks, and a few service I bought.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what website tools/CMS you are using, but you should have the ability to add keywords and meta descriptions for SEO purposes. With WordPress, for example, if you scroll down below where you enter your text, and there are boxes for those two things. You can enter hemp bracelet, hemp bracelets, and whatever else you want. It won't show up to website visitors, but it will show up to the search engine bots when they crawl around your site, and you won't have to make use of tortured grammar.  

 

Backlinks can take some time to show up, especially if they are on a low-traffic site that doesn't get much attention from the search engines. It might also help if they are complete URLs. I've seen sites like Alexa that didn't list a number of backlinks to my website, even though I know they exist, so I'm not sure how exactly they get identified.

 

Good luck!

5 Killer SEO Tips to Get Backlinks
http://www.clickbank.com/blog/2009/12/03/5-killer-seo-tips-get-backlinks/

"nyone who pays attention to SEO techniques knows that getting high quality, “do follow,” and diverse backlinks is the key to search engine optimization. The challenge, of course, is where to find places to get powerful backlinks.

Most people build their link building strategies around blog and forum postings. This makes sense and is certainly part of our plans as well. However, it stands to reason that Google also knows that most marketers who are using SEO tactics to rank their sites are doing this, and it makes sense that they will be looking for a much more diverse backlink pattern to award the highest rankings to.

With that in mind, I’m going to share the top 5 non-forum/blog backlink sources that we teach in Commission Blueprint 2.0."
