In link building, finding authority sites to acquire links from is one method of increasing your high quality links. High quality link building is pivotal to the success of your search engine optimisation campaigns as Google and other search engines assess the link quality as a way of determining how reliable and trustworthy your site is as a source of information for its searchers. A good analogy is to think of high quality link building as collecting votes of confidence which, over time, will also build your reputation as a good resource and high authority in your field.
When looking for authority websites you need to ensure they are relevant to your industry. One excellent source of authority websites is to look at the government sector. There are many online resources provided by the government and many may be appropriate to your industry. Links from .ac.uk sites, .gov sites and .edu sites will all boost your rankings and website optimisation. It’s worth putting effort into attracting these types of links and building relationships with the site owners. Google is driven by its goal to give its users the best information and most relevant sites. One of its methods of doing this is to find backlinks, and there are many in-depth algorithms used to assess which are high quality and reliable.
Government and educational sites have authoritative clout, and their content is cross-checked and validated ensuring its credibility. Another benefit to being linked to from these sites is that they also have a good PR strategy and will have constant content added. This means you also benefit from high quality content and great links from a network of other authority websites. As link building strategies go this can be hard work, but can bring great reward.At www.linkbuilding.com we provide a range of link building services for our clients.
