    Hello guys,

    Im new to backlinking, could somebody be so kind as to point me to some detailed information or even take the time to explain the basics to a newbie?


    I read alot in the forum, here are some i stumbled across when trying to read up on backlinks.

    Backlinks are a-tags leading to your website right?

    What does Web 2.0 backlink mean?

    I understand that Tier 3 are the worst kind of backlinks (what makes a terrible backlink?).
    Tier 2 means better and Tier 3 best Backlinks right?

    As i understand people make tier 3 backlinks point to Tier 2 Backlinks and those point to Tier 1 backlinks right? (why do people do this, isnt a tier 1 backlink enough?)


    Any links to great starter sites / material are very welcome!

    THANKS ALOT UPFRONT!!

    The html for a link is <a href="link"> as you have already mentioned.

    Tier 1 should be high quality which includes unique, well written content. These usually come from web 2.0 which are sites like wordpress, tumblr etc. Tier 2 & 3 are generally lower quality which are used to index and pass on link juice to your tier 1.

    Check out Matthew Woodward's website for tutorials on the subject.

    Well explained. Yes Tier2 and 3 are the lower quality backlinks and you can get these links from wordpress blogs very easily.But Tier 1 backlinks are those links which comes from high quality with high pr blogs and websites. So tier1 backlinks consider always good for the backlinking purposes.
