LINKING… The Basics - Corey Creed

Why Links?

“Links are… a Vote of Confidence”

Choosing a Dentist… When I moved to Davidson, North Carolina, I could have asked 10 people who the best dentist in town was. If 8 out of 10 point to one dentist, I assume he is the best dentist. Google does the same thing with links. More links, more votes of confidence, unless…

Quality vs Quantity

PageRank A value that represents the quantity and quality of links to a web page.

PageRank Exponential, not linear! Links PageRank (0 - 10)

PageRank How to determine your page’s Google PR “Visible PR” is only updated every few months or so.

PageRank A PR 2 Your site B PR 4

PageRank Other 25% 25% Other site site 25% A 25% Other site PR 3 Your site B 100% PR 3

PageRank The “NO FOLLOW” tag blocks PageRank. Your A site PR 4 No Follow

What is Anchor Text? “I think that John Smith is the best real estate agent in Davidson, North Carolina. I hope you will contact him when you need to buy a house.” “I think that John Smith is the best real estate agent in Davidson, North Carolina. I hope you will contact him when you need to buy a house.”
