Why Does Link Building Benefit SEO?
Search engines use backlinks in two different ways:
- To find new web pages to index
- To decide how a page should rank in the results
Backlinks help search engine robots find and index new pages. Once pages have been crawled they are in the running for ranking in the results. The content of a page matters, of course, but these robots also look at what links are pointing to the site. This helps them decide how credible the page is.
Backlinks are viewed as a seal of approval from other sites. If a lot of high-quality sites are linking to you, it will help you rank higher in the results. The biggest thing to remember when beginning your blog, is that you should never try to build easy links by paying for them or by resorting to low-quality sites.
