    New to SEO and trying to understand precisely how back links work.

    Lets say I have a website about making muffins, landing page is makemuffins_com

    In Example A: on the landing page there is anchor text for making blueberry muffins and cinnamon muffins, which link to other websites (blueberrymuffins_com and cinnamonmuffins_com) from my landing page .

    In Example B: Instead of the landing page linking off site to other websites, the other websites now link back to me. That is cinnamonmuffins_com and blueberrymuffins_com link back to my landing page makemuffins_com

    Which of the above, if any, is the correct way to get + reputation with google via back links?

    Thanks in advance.

    Please note I had to remove the . with _ in _com to get around new member filter thinking I was trying to spam website advertisements

    Example B is what you should aim for. Lookout for website to place your muffin website link. Backlinking is like Voting system. The more votes(backlinks) you get the better chance of you to rank no 1. There are lots of variables too like the quality, quantity etc. But the main thing is getting links from "relevant" sites like how you said here if you have a muffin website get "contextual links" from another muffin website.

    The only way to gain reputation(Or a better word Authority) is to get good quality backlinks which are relevant to your site. I would say you you better search the better to learn more about SEO as 1 thread won't resolve your problem. So use the search!

    Hardcorebiker,

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes there is much more to learn about SEO I was going to use the 2013 SEO guide a fellow blackhat member created by Kami to help get started. It should be on the front page of this sub-forum still, I am unable to link it.

    Anyways, as far as getting SEO backlinks in the method described in B, I am not sure how to do that for my particular niche .Its a small business where we work with investors who buy property with cash.The keyword long tails I am using are things such as Sell my home Dallas or sell my house fast Dallas, its fairly specific. What sort of websites could Ifind to link back to my landing page that promote these sort of keywords?
