When you put up a website, no one will ever know about it unless you find ways to “drive” traffic towards it. There are countless ways to accomplish this, and hundreds of books, reports, and products have been developed to teach the various methods.
One of the oldest “tried and true” tactics has been to get other websites to link to yours. That way, people visiting those sites will see something that makes them curious enough to pay you a visit. This is known as “backlinking”.
Many people find that getting backlinks can be a very confusing and time consuming method to drive traffic to a website. In fact, once people begin to understand what all goes into a successful backlinking campaign, many view it as hard work and go off in another direction. Yes, there is a lot of work in backlinking, but once you understand some of the basic techniques along with the huge power and weight that the right backlinks will bring to your website, it quickly becomes a no-brainer to get your campaign up and running quickly.
So the answer to the above question is, yes. If you want to start getting more visitors to your site from authority and targeted websites and from the search engines, (specifically for your most targeted keywords and long-tail keywords), then backlinking is a must do!
