What kinds of back links are considered the most powerful?

Hi All the forum members!
I am here to share a question and hope you all guys are gonna help me!
My question is what backlinks are most usefull or effective in making any website rank in search engines. Well I am quite familier with do follow, relevant theme, domain age and pr but still not able to create comprehensive result doing this all.

What do you think is the best way to create effective links.

Please help!

You can try to get links from similar industry, classified ads and yahoo answers. Also search google and make a list of PR8 and 7 websites that let you put in links for free.

.EDU and .GOV links are prizes in the SEO world because they pass on very good link juice.
Here are a few ideas on how to get these types of links.

  • Advertise or be a sponsor
  • See if they have job/service postings
  • Answer forum questions
  • Hold an online contest for university students or even university employees

Those back links which are related to your topic should be considered, as long as its better not to have back links which doesn’t goes along with your type of business. Do try to get back links from your type of business people and also do lots of off page promotional activities which increases your PR.

yeah…back links from the similar kind of business are more useful to increase your site PR. secondly try to choose high PR sites to put your back links. It also helps to increase and maintain PR.

Make sure you have more editorial links i.e. link within content, it looks more natural and has high weightage. Try it out and see the results. :slight_smile:

imho: the strongest link is a link from a stronger page (with many related back links, from high pr sites and high traffic) which has high traffic or is on a strong domain (high pr, traffic, back links and aged) and is from your business niche :slight_smile:

Total myth.

.edu and .gov links are generally no more valuable than an equivalent .com. .edu and .gov links “used” to be sought after because they were generally well linked to… i.e. had a high PR. They generally had far more inbound links than even big commercial sites on the web back in the day.

But a link from a .com with the same amount of PR and same relevance is just as good as a link from most any .edu and .gov site with the same PR and relevance.

I say “just as good as a link from most .edu and .gov sites” because SOME .edu and .gov sites (very, very few) that have been around since almost the beginning of the internet DO have high domain trust. So these few .edu and .gov sites might pass a little more domain trust to your site. But there are also .com sites that have equally as high domain trust. And domain trust is but one of the 200+ ranking factors Google is evaluating.

It’s going to be almost impossible to get a good link from one of those highly trusted .edu and .gov domains. Even if you do… it’s likely going to be on some deep inner page that has little or no PR… Doing so may increase your domain trust a tiny bit. But domain trust is one of over 200+ factors Google is looking at to rank your URL. It’s not going to make a noticeable difference in your rankings over getting links from an a equivalent .com.

Just because it’s a .edu or .gov 99.999+% of the time does NOT mean it’s a better link than a link from an equivalent .com.

Matt Cutts is on record as saying that they don’t pass any more juice than any other link.

Here is something I wrote elsewhere:

A link is assumed to pass more link juice if:
* it does not have the nofollow attribute added
* the page the link is on is indexed by the search engines
* it is not detected by the search engines as a paid link to manipulate the rankings
* the link is not part of a link exchange
* the number of links on the page that the link is on are low
* the page that the link is on, has a lot of link juice pointing at it
* the link was editorially given and not a self promotional easily gained link
* the page that the link is on is relevant and on the same topic as the page that the link is pointing at
* the anchor text of the link is the same topic as the page that the link is pointing at
* the site that the link is on is recognized as an authority site by the search engines
* the link is in the context of some text that the pages the link is pointing at is about

Seems SE’s frequently index do follow forum link. So forum links is the best way to gain your backlinks with your anchor text.

You do realize the search engines can not see your signature links here at Sitepoint?

The most value backlinks are the links that drive traffic to your site, even if they don’t have a tremendous effect upon your PR, they provide you with customers who will buy your product.

In the past, I was able to find individual student built blog or sites under an .edu link and since our site was all about saving money and spending less, they were happy to put a link on their site to mine. I’t looks like quite a bit more work these days. Even after I obtained a good .edu link, I did not notice much of an increase in PR.

I prefer to make comments on Hubpages. I can see that Google picks up the linking very fast through the Webmaster report.

In reality, the only kind of links you can get consistently are the ones you create in blogs, blog comments, forum comments, articles, press releases, and a handful of social bookmarking sites.

I have learned something from you all today. I have been posting my links everywhere I get a chance and one of my blogs was penalized by google may be for creating links too fast or something else. I will try the new strategies now

i learn a lot from you, thank youu:D:D

great info! this is what i’m looking for

Those links that are worth the most are those on pages on related subjects so that people visiting those pages are likely to be interested in following the links. The search engines attempt to value links the same as real people would value them.
