Listing on online business directories is one of the fastest and easiest ways to increase your backlinks to your website which is great for your SEO ranking. But what are backlinks?
Backlinks are hyperlinks from one website (domains) to another. They usually come from these types of sites
- Social Media Networks
- Online Directories
- Blog posts
- Content on other websites
Search engines see backlinks as “points” for your website score and can improve your website ranking. Each backlink will inform search engines that the site is relevant and valuable. So the more backlink points you get, the higher your website will rank in Google, Bing and other search engines.
Just keep in mind that not all links are created equal, you want quality backlinks, not just quantity. Links should come from trusted websites with good domain authority. Domain authority is a search engine ranking score developed by Moz that predicts how well a website will rank on search engine result pages (SERPs). A Domain Authority score ranges from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater ability to rank.
Listing your business on Neighbourlink’s local business directory or posting on the public blog will do wonders for your website’s backlink SEO.
