professional link building: It’s no secret that link building is the most important skill in SEO. In fact, it’s a culmination of several different skills: you need to master content, sales, programming, psychology, and good old-fashioned marketing if you want other people to link to your site.

Bottom line? If you want more search engine traffic, link building is a must.

And in this guide I’m going to show you everything you need to build quality links.

When it comes to building backlinks, one of two things can happen:

Thing #1: You Build High-Quality Links

Sit back and watch your site rocket to Google’s first page.

Thing #2: You Build Low-Quality Links

Watch Google penalize your site faster than you can say “what happened?!”.

With that, here’s how to identify links that are actually worth building:

Authority of the Site

A link’s quality is also determined by a domain’s sitewide authority.

In general, a link from a site like NYTimes.com will have a MUCH bigger impact than a link from a no-name blogger.

While these links are tough to get, they’re well worth the effort.

Again, Ahrefs comes in handy here. Enter any URL from the site into the tool and check out the site’s “DomainRating”.
