Factors QuantityQuality Anchor text RelevancePageRank
Quantity Just super-directories (Google, Yahoo, MSN, DMOZ) DMOZ listing has recently removed from the Google Webmaster Guidelines saying it is still a factor but may lose weight in the future Deep Linking is Better Domain is included Helps hidden pages/layers to get some juice A chance to include keywords in domain
Quality The authority of your site is determined by the relationship between inbound links and outbound links Quality flows from one site to another Gov, RP7, good neighborhood Blogs, blogs, blogs
Anchor Text The most powerful type of link Use the pages keywords - do not repeat ! Remember: 2 links types Search engine and users Only users (nofollow) nofollow- still important to get them (wiki sites) Nofollow doesnt transfer when copying a link! Nofollow still generates user traffic (wiki again???)
Relevancy The links and the text around them, inbound and outbound, are the main factor for SE to decide your relevancy to your neighborhood and your level of authority Get relevant links by being an authority Nofollow (v.) every outbound link that has lower PR or is irrelevant
PageRank Less powerful as it used to be Improve keyword ranking by solely balancing the max PR throughout the site Use nofollow within your site when needed If you must maintain a Links or Sponsored Links category, nofollow it in the navigation itself If there are external links to that page – isolate the navigation from it by nofollwing ALL the links from that section to the rest of your site
Tips Build links and traffic slowly so you will not be flagged Be careful using link baits – a spike can harm you Screen partners (use tools in next slide) AVOID creating Links pages, boxes or section.
