Site Guidelines

What kind of sites should be building backlinks and are welcome to the community

There are 2 pillars that a site should cater to before building backlinks:

1. Quality Content:

  • Content that is not generic, adds value compared to first 10 ranking pages on SERP
  • Covers the topic comprehensively
  • Meets the user-intent and is not primarily made for SEO.
  • A site should typically be catering to a particular audience. Catering to everyone means that there is no topical coverage and hence you have less chance of ranking on the SERP.

2. Website Experience

  • A site which is slow, show a lot of pop-ups, deceptive in nature would have a high bounce-rate.
  • High bounce rate is a ranking factor and affects your search performance.
  • Typically you should be aiming for a fast website, good design and very low number of pop-ups or ads.
