Link Building Tutorial - incoming, outgoing & reciprocal links

Navigation on the internet is based around links, as they save users having to type website URLs into the browser address bar, and as a result links are the primary means of navigation on the internet. Therefore it’s little surprise that search engines pay extra attention to the quantity and quality of links that a website has when assessing where it should be ranked.

When it comes to link building there are three main types of links:

  • Reciprocal Links - when two websites link to each other.

  • Outgoing Links - placing a link to a site on your website, with no link received back.

  • Incoming Links - when an external website places a link on their site to yours, but you don’t link back to them.

If you wouldn’t then don’t swap links. You may also want to check the page rank of the web page where your link will be placed - this page rank tool is useful for doing that.

PageRank - a system used by Google to rank web pages (0-10). The higher the PageRank the higher the deemed credibility and importance of the website. A website’s PageRank is primarily influenced by the quantity and quality of its incoming links.

Incoming links can be obtained in a number of ways. The best way is to provide quality content on your site, known as ‘link bait’. This will result in people naturally linking to you. You can also join a number of directories.

Some web sites now offer the ability to purchase links on their site. These tend to be high quality links, having the double effect of...
