“Link building can be a long and tedious task to complete”, states Dr. Keith Webb, the Veterinary Consultant, “Due to this, it is essential to set aside the appropriate amount of time and resources for the process, in order to complete the task as adequately as you can. Knowing what misconceptions there are in regards to link building, compiled with your own creativity, can take you very far in your link building accomplishments.”
In the decision process of which links to choose, one usually takes into account Google Page Rank as well as the site’s relevance. Although, these are both important, they should not to be overly emphasized at the link building opportunity’s expense.
Google Page Rank, a.k.a. PR, is the rating that Google gives a given page that it has crawled. PR is effective at displaying a site’s reach. Attempting to decode what makes a PR3 and a PR4 page is useless and a waste of valuable time. Besides, PR is not a good indicator of Google’s own system, PR0 links, within the right context, can be as useful s PR3 links.
The common way of thinking is that the most valuable links come from the ones with similarly themed, relevant pages. Although true, taking that for face value can encourage missed opportunities. The best links can be found on like themed sites, or within the same industry, but links that aren’t can be useful, as well. Use common sense, but just because a link is not the same theme as yours, don’t bypass it.
Provided you can procure your instinctive ways to value inbound links, sans relying on PR, increasing links to your site will come naturally. It will also prove to be more natural in your link profile.
