I always say linkbuilding is a profession of its own. It is hard work which not every SEO can do. And even with all the changes Google is making links will continue to play an important role in optimizing your website.

But even if you are not an expert, linkbuilding is still something you can start off doing. And if you do it is always nice to ‘get some help’. Maybe this infographic will help a little.

      Hi! we already did that at the bottom! Great work!

    This info graphic is a really good illustration, but despite that fact this is far from true. A link builder is a man who does a job. He builds links. Now to be efficient and effective you have to build links fast. So all of those faculties Shelli respectfully mentioned are just shy off fiction. A Link builder needs 4 things.

    3.Anchor text
    4. How many back links

    She forgot to draw pictures of SE NUKE or X Rumer, or various other third party link building sites. This image is a washed down version of events in a real Link builder world.

    Thats, my HO.

     Link building becomes even more crucial when you are a beginner in the online business, making it necessary for you to have as many visitor counts as possible.To increase the visitor count one of the best options you have is to have a high rank in the search engines’ results. If you are at the top in the rankings then you have the opportunity to get your website in the first page, increasing the probability of visitors.

    Truth be told, you have to have a very open mind and willing to adapt to whatever environment Google creates from month to month. This is a great snapshot at what it takes to think in and out of the box. Good post Bas!
