Features That Makes A Backlink High Quality Backlink

Backlink and Its Importance

Backlinks are one of the major component of site SEO and used to improve the worth and ranking of a blog or website. Since people were used to over optimize their thin content sites with plenty of backlinks, Search engines (especially Google) take notice of this habit and make some change in their search algorithm. Google release Panda and Penguin updates to its search algorithm and penalize the sites or blog with thin content and abundance of backlinks.[AdSense-A]

But it doesn’t mean that backlinking strategy to improve site SEO and Ranking is dead. No, you can still use backlinks as a means to improve ranking but make sure that these backlinks should be quality backlinks. Now the question is, what is a Quality backlink or what characteristics determine the quality of a backlink. This is sound question which you should ask when generating links to your site and here is the answer. Following in the post, we have highlights the features or characteristics which determine the quality of backlink and which you should consider when opting for quality backlinks.

 

01. Relevance

One of the features that make a backlink “quality backlinks” is the relevancy between both the source and the target page. Links from same niche are considered as quality backlink by Search engines. For example your blog is about Health and fitness tips, only link form the same topic or the sites with same content on it will benefits your PageRank and pass link juice to you as compared to the link from technology blog even if there is the PageRank of the Technology blog is high. Make it practice to get backlink form site with same topic and post in forums related to your niche.

02. Backlinks from Trusted Source

The quality of a backline is also determine by its origin, that where the link comes from. Search engines consider only those backlinks as quality backlinks that come from high quality trustworthy blog or website. On the other hand, links from spamblog or the blog with low reputation passes no any link juice to your blog and sometime even can lower your ranking and hurt your site SEO. Try always to get backlinks from popular sites with high reputation.

03. Generates Traffic

Most of the blogger don’t care about the visitors to redirect to their site or blog via backlink. They only try to get backlinks to improve their search engine ranking and not so much concerned about the visitor from the link. Backlinks is not only for search engines but they can be a source to redirect targeted visitors to blog too. A quality backlink is one which along with improving you site SEO, redirect visitors to your site as well. So try to put backlinks on the site such as forums which benefits you in both ways.

A good example of backlink that will send you traffic as well is commenting on CommentLuv enables sites (which gives you link back to your recent post) and forums. Both of these strategies will send a stream of targeted audience continuously.

04. Arise from Post Content

Although it is much easier to get backlinks from a blog or website through commenting and participating in discussion on a post published there, but search engine gives value to the link that originate from the content inside the post rather than the comments or side bar. Although this is tough job to get backlink right from within the post but you can get in-content backlinks which are really high quality backlinks by guest posting on relevant blogs or by posting high quality content on your own blog which others love to quote and mention on their blog with link back to your blog.

05. From Higher PageRank sites / Page

Search engines uses several parameters or feature to measure the worth and quality of backlinks. But among all the parameters or features, PageRank is the most obvious and key feature that determine the quality of a backlink. A high quality backlink is one originating from popular blogs with higher PageRank (PageRank 3 or greater) and passes link juice to the target blog as compare to those originating from lower PageRank sites. Higher PageRank, high quality backlink.

[AdSense-A]

Want to get high quality backlinks from high PageRank site to optimize your site for search engines. Here are some great resources

06. From High Domain Authority Sites

Along with the PageRank, Domain authority is another crucial factor which search engine uses to determine the value of a website or blog and thus the quality of the backlinks located on the given blog. The Domain authority is determined on the basis of the Domain Age, ranking and popularity. In order to get high quality backlinks, check the domain authority of the blog from where you want to get backlinks by guest posting or commenting along with PageRank and other factors

07. Matches with Anchor text

Another factor of the backlink which play vital role in determination of its worth, and which is underestimated by many bloggers is the text to which the backlink is anchored. The perfect match between the anchor text and the anchor link give value to the link and make the link a quality backlink. This mean that the high quality backlink is one which clickable text (anchor text) used similar words as in the backlink or, in other words, the title of the targeted page to which the link is made. So when trying to get quality backlink, use keywords or the title of your blog as a clickable text to add some quality to the backlinks

 

08. Not A Reciprocal Backlink

Link exchange or Reciprocal links or were once the most common and popular method to improve the site SEO in past but now it can results in Penalty by search engines and instead of passing any benefit, harm the website or blog SEO. While trying to get backlinks from the same niche blogs, make sure that these links are natural and you do not provide any backlink in return to that blog.

 

09. Dofollow Backlinks

Another crucial factor which determines the quality of a backlinks is the dofollow attribute. The dofollow attribute of a backlink tells the search engine to follow the link. The search engines acknowledge only dofollow backlinks and do not follow and transfer PageRank to nofollow links

Note: All links are by default “dofollow”. There is no dofollow attribute, only the absence of nofollow makes a link dofollow.

10. Deep Link

First let us explain what a Deep link is.

A deep link is a hyperlink or backlink that links to one of your blog page other than the homepage. For example www.crizmo.com/tags/seo is a kind of Deep link as it made to a specific page rather than to home page (www.crizmo.com).

Deep links are really high quality backlinks and add ranking to the other pages on your blog as well. So to get high quality backlinks, make backlinks (or deep linking) to the other pages of your blog as well not just to home page.

Quick Checklist To Get Google AdSense Approval For Your Blog

Quick Checklist To Get AdSense Approved

Quick Checklist To Get AdSense Approved

Google AdSense with no doubt is the most popular advertising company and share handsome revenue with publisher or bloggers who display AdSense Ads on their sites. Achieving Google AdSense account is one of the big dream and a key milestone for every blogger especially for the newbie blogger.[AdSense-A]

Almost every blogger struggle hard to make their site or blog eligible for AdSense as it is one of the best revenue generators for bloggers. Although there is many other advertizing networks exist but still, no one can beat Google AdSense in sense of profit it generates and share among the publisher or blogger.

Mentioned above are some good qualities of AdSense but the dark side of AdSense is it is hard to get. It is almost impossible to get AdSense approval at first attempt. Many bloggers try even 20 times to get AdSense approved.

Hard to get but not impossible, every blogger can get AdSense account and start making money if his or her blog comply with AdSense policy. So don’t lose your heart, read the quick checklist below to get approved AdSense account on your blog and enjoy making money the most popular advertizing network.

Here we have compiled a checklist and important requirement which you should follow before submitting your site for AdSense. First take a quick review and then explore in depth

Quick AdSense Approval Checklist:

  1. Write Content in AdSense Supported Languages
  2. Buy Top Level Domain (.com, .net, .in, .pk)
  3. Domain age should be older than 6 months
  4. A Complete Blog with No under Construction Pages
  5. Well Define and focused Topic
  6. Make Quality Contents not copy pasted
  7. Sufficient Numbers and Length of Post, let say 50+ articles with 500+ words
  8. Make Some About Us, Contact Us and Privacy Policy Pages
  9. Make Easy Navigation for site
  10. Have some Traffic from Organic Source r search engines

01. Write Content in AdSense Supported Languages

The first requirement to get Google AdSense approval for your blog or website is its content should be in one of the Google AdSense supported languages. Till now AdSense support 36 (local and international) languages. Check out the list of supported languages and if your blog content is written in one of these languages, you pass the first requirement to get AdSense approval. Now move to other steps.

02. Buy Top Level Domain

Forgot about yoursite.blogspot.com, yoursite.wordpress.com, yousite.co.cc etc. Those days are gone when Google approve AdSense for sub domains and now there is no more opportunity for sub domains to get AdSense approved. Nobody wants to pay for advertisement on sites which even don’t have their own custom domain.

 So the only way to get AdSense approval is to be professional and buy some Top Level Domain or TLD like yoursite.com, yoursite.com.in or one with .net, .org at the end.

Quick Tip: Don’t use sub domain to wait for decent traffic to your site. Start your blogging journey from day first with a Custom domain like .com.

03. Domain age (older than 6 months)

The condition of domain age depends on the country from where you applying for AdSense. In some centuries like China, India and Pakistan, Google make policy to approve the application of those blogs or websites with domain age older than 6 month. Although in other countries, people with just few days old domain get approval but again, how a site with just few days old domain can pass the other requirements to get AdSense approval like Sufficient content, traffic and number of post.

04. A Complete Blog with No Under Construction Pages

Before applying for AdSense account, strictly ensure that your site is complete with no page or category under construction. Google reject sites with under construction pages. So all you need is a complete site or blog with sufficient number of posts or pages with no any under construction page.

Quick Tip: If your site has let say, 20 categories 15 with sufficient number of posts and 5 with only few or no post (content), remove these page or categories at first and then apply for AdSense.

05. Well Define Topic

AdSense love the site and approve them fast with focused topic or the one build on a single niche. This makes AdSense able to put relevant ads on your site according to your site topic. Having too many topic covered at same time is not a best practice.

Quick Tip: Start with a single niche or topic first and then grow your blog to cover more.

06. Make Quality Contents

Another important requirement for AdSense account approval is Fresh unique and quality contents or articles. Quality of the content matters rather than quantity. If you have only 50+ quality written articles, it is much better than 100s poorly written articles with too less or huge content. Most of the applicants fail to get Google AdSense approved because they skip this step or really don’t understand what the Unique Quality Content mean. Google love the contents which “the only one of its kind”.

Remember, these contents should not be copy pasted from other sites or blogs as Google will detect plagiarism and will reject your site for AdSense. It is not only the text but also the media (Images or video), so if you took something like Images or Videos from other sites, keep in mind that it should be labeled for reuse and give the source site Credit back.

07. Sufficient Numbers and Length of Post

Although there is no hard and fat rule for the Numbers and Length of article but still this fact is to be consider before applying for Google AdSense. Some experts suggest that there should be at least 40+ well written articles while other insists 50 or more articles before applying for AdSense. For me the more quality content the more chance of approval, so be patient and wait until your number of blog post reach 50.

How long these articles should be?
The average length (in sense of word) of these 50 articles should be 500 + words. Again, 500 words may be insufficient to cover some topics like a 101 list of something or may be too much for a Top 5’s. Thus 500 words is an average and you can go beyond or limit yourself to 500words.

08. Make Some Important Pages

Just visit any well developed professional built website or blog and you will find About Us, Contact Us and Privacy Policy pages along with homepage on the top menu or in the footer (bottom) of website.

What are these pages and why they are there?
Having these pages on a site show that the site is managed by humans for humans and not for AdSense only. Google AdSense love the site which focuses human readers not search engines and advertisers. Having these pages on your site will make your site more professional

So make sure before applying for Google AdSense and create:

  • An “About us” Page which tells who you are and about what your site or blog is.
  • A “Contact Us” page to have some way to contact you by visitors as well as advertisers.
  • A “Privacy Policy” page which tells the visitors about some basic information and concerns related to their privacy. The page must contain information about Cookies like tracking Cookies and Double-Click DART Cookies which is used by Google to serve ads.

09. Easy Navigation

Believe it or not, some of the well developed site with sufficient number of quality posts and lots of unique visitors still rejected by AdSense team due to improper Navigation. Remember Google love the sites that are made for people with easy navigation. Your site may have quality content but if it has messy design and hard to navigate through, your application may rejected by AdSense Team.

So keep this in mind and make your navigation menu simple easy and in access of your visitor from each of your blog or site page.

10. Organic Source of Traffic

Last but not least, traffic is the key to get AdSense approval and this traffic must come through organic source like search engines not the paid traffic (Google reject the sites for AdSense with Paid Traffic). Although traffic is not mandatory nor it is stated in AdSense Policy as AdSense is not concerned with number of visitors, it is more concerned with the source of traffic but still site with good traffic get approval fast.

Quick Tip: Try to build some natural and organic traffic from search engines not only through social media.

They still tend to repeat the same mistake and got punished by Google by dropping the blog’s ranking in SERPs. Again it is not natural to have too many links from same anchor text whether internal or external.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

To avoid over-optimized anchor text backlinks generating mistake and penalty by Google, try to get backlinks from mixed keywords or anchor texts. This will look natural to both Search engines and to the readers.

An example of well optimized and balanced anchor text backlinks is to have 80% of the links coming from your brand name (like Crizmo or Crizmo.com for my blog) and 20% from keyword rich anchor text (like SEO or How to Get Backlinks for my blog).

While some brand and SEO experts follow the 80:20 rule, others keep keyword rich anchor text backlinks limited to only 5% as compared to 95% links coming from their brand name

03. Links from Bad Reputation (De-Indexed) Sites

Google and other search engines don’t like the sites with thin or duplicate contents, gambling sites spam blogs, auto-blogs and p*rn sites. These sites are usually de-indexed by Search Engines due to violation of rules or due to stealing of Copyrighted material. Backlinks from such sites which are usually banned by search engines, are for sure much easy but will results in low ranking of your blog or website in SERPs and may even get de-indexed.

So the bloggers who want to generate the quantity of backlinks rather the quality must conscious about this dangerous backlinks generating mistake.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

Never try to get links from sites stated above or if you want to get backlink from sites which you don’t know much about, do some background search about it to avoid penalty y search engines especially Google.

 

04. Lots of Backlinks in Short Time

Another common backlinks generating mistake which most of the blogger made is generating too many backlinks in a short period of time. It doesn’t require building backlinks quickly but it is the quality of backlinks that matters to improve SEO. Creating too many backlinks in a short period will consider as spam links and will hurts your site SEO.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

Try to build backlinks naturally not quickly and try to get it from authoritative domains. Have one link from High PageRank site with authoritative domain in a week is better than 100 backlinks from low PageRank domain in a day.

05. Buying Backlinks

Generating natural backlinks requires time and efforts but if you spent money to overpass the time and effort section of generating backlinks, you are doing it wrong. Although few so called SEO companies offering High PageRank Backlinks for a small amount of money but these links will be consider as spam and illegal by search engine and will hurts your site SEO rather than promoting it.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

Don’t buy links no matter how less it costs because it is not natural anyhow. Be professional in regards of generating backlinks and try to build your backlink bank at your own.

 

06. Reciprocal links (Links Exchange)

Reciprocal links were one of the most popular methods of generating backlinks in past because it was easy to do. All it required is to find relevant site in industry and mutual understanding between webmasters. But when this method grows at rapid rate and people misuse it to over-promote their thin content-website, search engines like Google take notice of this method. Websites which participates in “link farming” (technically known as blogroll) were panelized by Google as this method is unnatural way of building backlinks and reputation.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

Reciprocal links or link exchange get really bad reputation so avoid this mistake to generate backlink and don’t take part in any reciprocal link building or link exchanging campaign. Some high PageRank online web directories too, offer to list sites and give backlink in turn of a reciprocal link to them. Don’t accept the offer and be natural to build backlinks.

 

07. Backlinks from Irrelevant Niche sites

My blog is about SEO and Blogging but if I get a backlink from PageRank 7 blog related to travel or Health and Fitness, will it benefit my blog reputation? Definitely No. Many bloggers repeat this mistake and do comments on irrelevant sites to get backlinks. Backlinks from irrelevant sites add very less magnitude to your site SEO.

How to Overcome This Link Building Mistake

Try to get backlinks from relevant sites in your industry or site with same niche instead of irrelevant site.

 

08. Links from Low PageRank Sites

Building backlinks to improve SEO means to built quality links not just the quantity and quality mean to get backlinks from High PageRank sites with authoritative domain. Using low PageRank (PageRank 0/10 or PageRank N/A) sites to build backlinks will not boost your SEO and sometime will harm your site reputation and ranking too.

How to overcome This Link Building Mistake

Try to get backlinks from at least PageRank 2 to PR 3 and look further for Higher PageRank sites (PR 4 to 9). These quality links will pass you “link juice” and boost your SEO.

 

09. Linking from High PR sites only (Ignoring Low PR)

It’s true that quality matters in case of backlinks rather than quantity. But contrary to above stated point #8, links from low PageRank sites are necessary too to generate natural backlinks. A mix of backlinks from both High and Low PageRank sites is required to get link juice.

How to overcome This Link Building Mistake

To make your backlinks bank look more natural, try to keep a balance of backlinks from high PageRank and low PageRank sites as it will give good result.

 

10. Forgetting Internal Links

Last but not least, forgetting or not paying attention to internal links is really common linking mistake most of blogger made. Internal links are as essential as incoming links or backlinks. Internal links are not only essential for site navigation but they pass the link juice effects throughout the site. Suppose that one of your blog pages have high PageRank, linking others low PageRanked pages from the said page will boost the other page rank as well.

How to overcome This Link Building Mistake

Try to spread internal links all over the blog or website. Include links to low ranking pages or post from relevant high ranking or most read post and page.
