|1. Four ways to get natural backlinks|
Google has become pretty good in detecting low quality web pages and links. If you use a link service that promises a lot of high PR links for little money or if you participate in a fully automated linking system, chances are that Google will penalize your website because you are trying to trick them.
Just use common sense: if you can find that automated linking system, Google can find it too. Do not try to trick Google.
If you want to get better rankings on Google, the links that point to your website should be from related websites and from sources that would "naturally" link to your website.
1. Create a linkworthy website
2. Solve other people's problems
3. Put your website into the right context
4. Get links to different pages of your website and vary your link texts
Getting the right kind of backlinks is very important if you want to get high rankings on Google and other search engines. Create interesting and linkworthy web pages and optimize the content of these pages for search engines.
When you are sure that your web pages are user-friendly and interesting, get the right kind of links to your website and your rankings will increase.
