    Hello friends....

    Want to share in detail a method called "skyscraping" that draws quality backlinks.

    Brian Dean first coined the phrase “Skyscraper technique” on his blog, which means he is the founder of this technique. The basic definition is a system for turning content into high-quality backlinks. The Skyscraper technique works as follows:

    Step 1: Find some link-worthy and highly ranked content

    Step 2: Make it even better

    Step 3: Outreach your content to the right people

    The first step in the Skyscraper Technique is to find a model piece of content. It should be unique, useful, helpful, valuable and most importantly something people genuinely want to link back to.

    The second step in the Technique is to take your linkable asset and make it even better.

    After the Linkable assets are identified and improvements are made, it is time to put the final part of the technique into action. Identify the right people and start connecting to them with your masterpiece.

    Benefits of Skyscraper Technique:

    - This technique helps you-Build high-quality content that is useful for your readers

    - Increase your social shares

    - Increase overall backlinks (most important for off-page SEO) to your blog posts.

    - Increase your blog comments

    - Increase your authority

    - Increase your blog exposure

    - Increase your overall blog traffic from search engines

    - Build strong relationships with other bloggers

    Nowadays digital marketers are finding it increasingly difficult to capture the attention of their target audience. Also due to the heated up competition in marketing, they are not able to stand up to the expectations. As a result, marketers are finding a need for getting more creative, experimenting with new content mediums and varying their approaches to bringing in targeted new customers. Marketers are attempting to mix up styles of content in order to capture their target market’s attention; from lists to infographics and videos, content marketers are no longer simply writing blog posts in word format. Skyscraper technique has been a very important part of Digital marketing and SEO. This proven method of increasing high quality backlinks is followed by many of the Digital Marketing companies. Also, it has been one of the bet assets for Digital Marketing and SEO Executives.

    “It’s human nature to be attracted to the best,” says Brian Dean.

    That’s why the world’s tallest building, The Burj Khalifa attracts almost 2 million visitors per year. Hence in Digital Marketing what matters is how and from where to get in more Customers.

    Thanks for sharing these very important SEO basics. For starters, I would emphasise on link building, since it directs and redirects traffic to your page. Ensure the key words are up to date in terms of the most searched. You can also stalk your competitors and see the keywords that rank their pages above yours. Use those keywords in your heading and content as well

    Sky crapper technique is the best way to increase your SEO traffic since it is easier to implement and works very fast and effectively. Just like its been mentioned here that everyone is attracted to Burj Khalifa, search engines are also attracted to the best built links. Link building is the way to go as far as basic SEO is concerned

    Great post with fine advices. I want to share some of my collected points regarding SEO which I think every newbie must know. You can add to this list.


    What are the factors of on page SEO?

    ● The length of the Content

    ● Keyword in the Title tags

    ● URL’s

    ● Attractive images

    ● Canonical tag

    ● Content updates

    ● Outbound links



    What are the factors of off page SEO?

    ● The number of linking domains

    ● The number of linking pages

    ● Link relevancy

    ● The diversity of link types

    ● Contextual links

    ● Link anchor


    What is redirection and what are its type?

    On a Web site, redirection is a technique for moving visitors to a different Web page than the one they request, usually because the page requested is unavailable. Web users often encounter redirection when they visit the Web site of a company whose name has been changed or which has been acquired by another company.

    Types:

    1. 301 (Parmanent Redirect):

    The server communicates that the document at this address has permanently moved. The status of this communication shows that references to the old address should be deleted and updated to the new address.

    2. 302 (Found):

    The document was found but for the moment it is somewhere else.

    3. 303 (See Other):

    In order to prevent bookmarking or refreshing of pages that hold one-time only data (think a credit card payment form) a server may answer with 303 which means "I have received the information from your form that you've sent using the POST method; to prevent any data accidents, please see my response at this other URL bringing the data over using the GET method just to be really clear."
    4. 307 (Temporary Redirect):
    Identical to that of 303 with the difference that instead of changing the way the information was submitted from one technique to another, the same technique is used.
    5. 308 ( Permanent Redirect):

    Like 307 but with a permanent status.



    WHAT IS SITE MAP?

    A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site.

    There are three primary kinds of site map:

    ● Site maps used during the planning of a Web site by its designers.

    ● Human-visible listings, typically hierarchical, of the pages on a site.

    ● Structured listings intended for web crawlers such as search engines.


    What to avoid in SEO?

    1. Optimizing content around one keyword.
    2. Neglecting dated content.
    3. Forgetting mobile users.
    4. Not optimizing for site speed.
    5. Failing to include relevant and helpful internal links.
    6. Not having unique content.
    7. Focusing on meta keywords.
    8. Not allowing your site to be crawled
    9. Not taking advantage of Local SEO.
    10. Incorporating too many PDFs.
    11. Incorporating too many PDFs.
    12. Not optimizing URLs or site structure.

    Hi, I think it's very useful for newbie but my question is how to know your content is good or not?

    The second one is I feel it's hard to collect links from other websites. So where should I get backlinks, but not forum backlinks?

    Thanks
