A backlink or inward link is a link from another website or blog linking to your blog or site. When someone clicks on that link he will be directed to your site.

I have learnt from blogging that getting backlinks is one of the ways to boost PageRank.

A backlink is a good link when
• The backlink is from a site that is talking about a similar subject like yours
• The site has a better PageRank and Traffic Rank
• It has great content and is relevant to your blog

You can take the following steps to get quality backlinks:

When you come across a suitable site, try and find out whether it is possible to get a reciprocal link. If you can see a list of linkable sites under such headings like "friends" or "related blogs" you know you can get a backlink. You will then set up a backlink on your blog for the site that you are interested.

There are two things you can do next. You can send an email commenting about the other site and also about exchanging ideas since you share a common interest. The other thing that you can do is to write an article to highlight the other site. You will then send an email to notify the owner of the site to check out your story. At the same time, in the email, you will also request for a backlink.

The most important thing to do is that you have to make the first move by offering the other site a backlink to show your sincerity. The next thing is that you should ask for a backlink and not demand for it. The fact that you have sent an email and posted an article about the other site shows that you have a genuine interest to enter into a relationship.

Happy blogging and linking!
