Knowing What A Good Natural Link Is
Since it's coming up on holiday season, there are a lot of words being brought up. Those terms are: natural links, quality links, and good links. You want to make sure you are using the correct types of links.
It's extremely important to know exactly what these different links are. It doesn't matter if you are talking to someone else or if you are just using it for personal knowledge, it's something that you need to know in order to run your website efficiently.
In this post, we are going to help you understand the different types of links and help you understand which links will be the best to use for your personal site.
The first link we are going to talk about is a natural link. This is a link that looks like it is in the webpage naturally. In other words, it doesn't look like it was deliberately placed on the website. There are a few things that you should know that natural links do NOT do. Those things are:
- They don't let you be tracked when you push on it
- They aren't placed inside paid content
- They don't redirect you to anything that makes anyone money
One thing to know is that a natural link is there as a reference. This could be for specific content or even websites.
The next link we are going to talk about is unnatural links. These links are deliberately placed by companies and they trace you. They are placed within paid content and if someone follows the link, you might not get paid because it isn't a natural link. When it comes to unnatural links, there are a few things to keep in mind. Those things are:
- These links do trace you
- These links are placed inside paid or sponsored content
- These links are usually from websites that only want you to click it so they can make money
Next are semi-natural links. These are links that are natural links but they can also be tracked. Most of these types of links are used by bloggers because, while the link on their site isn't tracked, the landing page that the link takes you too could be.
Quality backlinks are links that only come from high quality sites. In order for a website to be considered high quality, they have to have the following characteristics:
- This site is a website that specializes in one specific thing, such as cooking or parenting
- There are no links that will take you to any type of adult, illegal, payday, or scam websites
- You won't be able to see that they have sponsored content on their website
- None of the advertising has any price shown on it
- You can easily find them through a Google search
- The content will only be by members of staff and not multiple random contributors/li>
- The links will have an original description that wasn't paid for or bought
Keep in mind that A good link is not the same thing as a quality link. A good link is something that will have a good impact on a websites search ranking. For example, a website that has generic or manipulative wording is not a good link, even if it comes from a quality website. On the other hand, if a lesser known website has wording that is unique and isn't misleading then that would be considered a good link.
When trying to build good links, there are a few things that you need to ask yourself. Those things are:
- Who have I been able to enspire?
- Why would that person feel like they should share my content or website?
- Was I able to answer any common or uncommon questions?
- What makes my content or website stand out from others?
- How have I explained my content better than similar websites?
- In what ways have I made my content easy to share?
- Have I put advertising where my visitors can easily see it?
No matter what, remember that quality outweighs quantity. Not only will having good content make you easier to find on Google, but it will keep your regular customers and new customers coming back.
