Do you want editorial backlinks? Can blog commenting help get them? How important are editorial backlinks in SEO? Let’s keep reading…
Blog commenting is an exciting blogging exercise right? I know you all agree with me. It’s been one of the ways to expand and grow your sphere of influence as a blogger.
There are of course a bunch of benefits but I’m not about to dwell on them. However, one of the reasons most people drop comments is to get backlinks.
They focus on backlinks from the comment area on blogs using the traditional WordPress commenting system. Some go looking for CommentLuv enabled blogs just to drop comments and grab some backlinks.
One fatal SEO (Search engine optimization) mistake we make is building backlinks and moving forward without looking back to clean up.
Not all the links pointing to your blog will add to your search ranking. Some are toxic and that’s what we want to deal with in this post.
But what is a toxic or dangerous backlinks ?
At the moment of writing, there is no universal definition of a toxic backlink. However, this generally refers to links from private blog networks, websites that violate Google’s guidelines, or sites with major security flaws.
Guest Posting is an approved Content Marketing and contextual Link Building strategy. But in recent times, content marketers and bloggers are facing really tough times in the activity.
Everyone with a website is aiming at Google page #1 and as we are told backlinks are a top ranking factor, some irrational webmasters will stop at nothing to get them.
In Semantic SEO, topic is the new keyword. Period!
Are many of your entries on Google results page #2 and beyond?
How do you get these to page #1 without sweating in getting another relevant backlink from a high DA domain?
Is it possible to tweak your OnPage SEO and gradually move your entries to page 1 and position 1 on SERPS?
Well, there are lots of search engine optimization options you could do on your posts to improve their search rankings and boost organic search.
But I want to specifically dwell on page Semantic SEO, which already gives some folks an edge in the digital marketing space.
I’m beginning an experiment with a piece of tool called textoptimizer for:
NB: My favorite full-blown SEO and marketing tool highly recommended is SEMrush
I will monitor and report my progress with time.
I have been keeping an eye on SERP changes for some posts updated with Textoptimizer’s proposed LSI keywords and topical terms and phrases.
Here is the first report where SERP entry went from Google page #3 to page #1 and +240% CTR
Should you buy backlinks in 2019 for search engine rankings ?
I mean yeah you might have heard people buying and selling links half a decade back in order to boost organic traffic.
But what’s the current response?
As far as Google is concerned, it doesn’t officially encourage the act if you buy backlinks for SEO.
Though inbound links are a strong ranking factor, Google wants “Links to be natural and organic“. But it’s not so simple out here in the real-world, is it? It would take you months and even years to get any number of links which would actually contribute towards your rankings organically.
Have you heard that you have to write in-depth articles so as to attract inbound links from your readers?
We have been told that in-depth articles are a sure way to get those backlinks naturally and rank higher in search engines.
Backlinks are still a strong Google or Search Engine ranking factor. We know of Content Quality and Rankbrain. Content Quality goes with Semantics and In-depthness (Which is what we want to deal with now)
What is in-depth by the way ?
In-depth means complete with regard to every detail; not superficial or partial. It’s comprehensive and thorough, including nearly or all elements or aspects of something.
