    Okay, I just set up a forum on a HG host, and need SEO.


    A member of the site suggested backlinks to pull people in.

    I joined this site to learn and understand SEO, so of course, I need help :p

    Will someone explain how all this works.

    How to get BLs.
    What they do.
    Advantages of them.

    Thanks and I KNOW I am a n00b :)

    Search for angelas backlinks on here...
    Register -> leave link to your forum -> ping it -> 1 down as many as you want to go

    Backlinks give your site authority(authority is good for search engine rankings)

    Class dismissed

    PS there are more ways but that will get you started

    Backlinks are links from other websites to your site. If they are links that the google bot can follow, i.e. do follow backlinks, they act as a vote recommending your site as an authority on whatever subject. The more valid votes you have, i.e. the more good backlinks your site has, the more rellevant it seems at least from the point of view of the Google bots

    Backlinks should occur naturally but few people link to you spontaneously. So people do things like article marketing, forum participation with a link in their signature, blog commenting, guest blogging, RSS feeds to try and get as many backlinks to their sites as possible

    There are a few threads on backlinks in this forum if you do a site search

    Good luck

    Okay, so I am SORT OF understanding how this works, BUT ... what do I do to "establish" these?

    I mean, say I am just done putting up the forum, what do I do now?

    Baby steps please :)

    ssellers. Read this article about backlinks
    It gives a more thorough explanation than I did above and is aimed at affiliate marketers

    Oh, also in your username, try to put your keyword in and in your bio, explain about yourself then sprinkle in some of your keyword there too. What's better than a backlink? A relevant backlink :D
