4.11 Summary

I′m not going to talk much. To sum up what you just read (and that′s what I believe you already remember well):

  • With links, sites "vote" for each other — and Search Engines look at these votes.
  • Quality of links is much more important than their quantity.
  • Links can sit on all pages of a site — and they′re called sitewide links, and they can also come from homepages and inner pages of a site.

You′ve also learnt how to judge on the quality of links and how to choose the right anchors for your links.

And believe me, that′s quite enough to start getting big amounts of really good–working links — and this is what we′re going to do next.

But first — don′t forget about the quiz!

This is very commonly happening thing for the body builder who do workout continuously for more hours. These pains has very great impact on the person and don’t allow them to work properly by showing that pain. It is good to take expert trainer help in this thing.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what they're talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story.

getting confused......!!! how google identifies the paid links.?

#4586 2017-01-27 12:44:05 Dan Richmond

Well, Google uses various algorithms to detect unnatural links; commonly, a link may be considered as paid in case the linking website has lots of links to lots of irrelevant sites (or covering too wide range of topics/niches) - this way the linking website would be marked as a website most likely selling links, and the links from it would be devalued. In case the backlinks are sidewide (links from footers/sidebars), in case they have branded or domain-match anchor details - they may be considered as paid. Finally, getting a bunch of links from authoritative websites for no reason and within a short period of time will also look suspicious and unnatural in the eyes of Google.
