How Backlinks help your website traffic increase

Links to your website from other sites are called backlinks. Backlinks are a major way to increase your websites ranking in search engines, (how early Google will list you in search results). Increasing your search engine ranking is called “Search Engine Optimization” or SEO. There are many ways to increase SEO, and it can sometimes be challenging to keep track of your links to know how successful you have been.

The way to find out how many backlinks your website has is to go to Yahoo.com and enter “linkdomain:www.xxx.xxx”, without the quotation marks, and where xxx.xxx is your websites URL or address. An example might be linkdomain:www.AnothenLife.org to find out how many backlinks my deliverance ministry has.

Here’s how you might use it. If you have similar ministries or businesses that have been successful, you might look at their backlinks to see where they are listed. You don’t need to be on every site, just focus on the best known, larger, or more popular sites that have a similar focus to yours. That will cause your ranking to be higher in your specific areas of focus. Your ranking is also increased when the site with the backlink and your site have similar key words. An example of my focus would be sites with “deliverance”, “inner healing”, or “social media for ministry” on the home page of their site. Some sites/directories will add a backlink if you request it, some might charge a fee, or require you to reciprocate by listing their URL on your site.

Give it a try and see how much your website’s hits increase.

Please continue to share this blog with others that it might help.
