Free links & link building

Search engines have complicated algorithms for assessing a site, but one aspect is vital - how many sites have links (called 'backwards links', or 'backlinks' in the trade) to your website.

The more sites that link to yours the better, however it's not simply a numbers game, the quality of the links is also important.

• The more popular the site is that has your link, the greater that link is valued.

• Where the link is positioned on the site also plays a part: obviously the home page has the greatest value

• The context of the link is also rated, is it part of massive list, or prominently placed on its own?
