Im a newbie with regards to search engine opimisation and building backlinks and I just want some questions answered about creating backlinks.
If I create 30 backlinks by leaving 30 separate comments with text urls on Myspace for instance does that mean I will have gained 30 backlinks?
Also when i have checked for a list of backlinks associated with my website i find that these backlinks that i have created on Myspace are not listed? Does anyone know why this is?
And does anyone know of a good free website that will count all the backlinks and give the most accurate total for a website?
And what should I be doing to create the perfect backlink for a website?
Many thanks in advance.
Your links on Myspace may not yet have been indexed by the SE's.
You can get a list of backlinks by going to Yahoo and typing the command:
Other sites provide better listings of backlinks but they charge a monthly fee.
30 backlinks from one site are not as valuable as one link each from 30 different websites.
To get the perfect backlinks for your site try following this advice:
That is a question that encompasses the entirety of link building strategies discussed in this forum. That kind of knowledge can't be pulled out of the pocket like a quarter and passed along. Fortunately we have a Library of key discussions [webmasterworld.com] about some of the most important link building issues since this forum began. I highly recommend every single discussion in that library.
Does this mean though that if I send 30 separate comments with url/backlinks that each comment will count as one backlink with google and the other search engines? And will 500 separate comments count as 500 separate backlinks with the search engines?
And if I add 500-700 backlinks on Myspace per week can i be penalised for this by the search engines? For adding too many backlinks in a short space of time ie 7 days? Or is this acceptable?
And lastly is it enough to just leave a short text comment with your url of your website or is it better in the eyes of google and the other search engines to add key words within the text too?
Many thanks for all your help and the warm welcome to this forum.
Just to clarify things.
If i send any comment on Myspace to another user on my friends list and it contains text and the url of my website it will be seen as a backlink by the search engines? Or does it have to take a particular form and have a particular content other than just the url/text link to be considered as a backlink by the search engines?
As all i have done is left comments for other users saying thanks for supporting my website with the url of my website included in this brief text.
I have seen this backlink code many times before: <a href="http//:www.domain.com>Anchor Text</a> but what does it actually mean? And how do you use it?
All i have been doing is sending my friends text comments with the URL of my website included. And so there is usually one of these backlinks per page.
Your question about how to code anchor text is something you should be asking in the New to Web forum category. Of course, you can always research HTML questions at the W3C [w3.org].
Best and good luck,
