Basics of backlinks
In general, main concept is not to search out, but give references to other sites. The higher a site or a page has many backlinks, the more probability of being indexed by search engines. Backlinks can create a natural, organic links to your site and are given due relevance to the content or referred to the relevant content.
Another way to create backlinks is directory submission which I will explain in a different topic later on. Other choice are link exchanging, buying links from reviews, social communities and collaborative ways to build.
The value of a link is measured with respect to anchored text (keyword that sends link to a page or site), link age, link type (image or text), text surrounding the link and relevance to the page reference.
Number of backlinks to recommend a site or a page is another important factor to be included in search results. Besides the above factors, the number of backlinks influence positioning searches.
Quality of backlinks is not in the least, an important factor. I said earlier that the number of backlinks is an important factor, but if the number of the backlinked sites are of low quality sites, then this number is almost irrelevant. Sites that contain your links must be high ranked, popular or must drive traffic at most. Page rank is a score that estimates a quality of a site, but ultimately it does not determine actual or overall quality at all. It just gives a quick concept of a site's eligibilty.
