Building Authority Links – Why is it important?

Building Authority Links - Why is it important?

Authority links are the links from websites that have established a considerable degree of authority and trust with the search engines due to their quality, size, and age. Authority is a subjective concept. None of the search engines, not even Google, offer any public guidelines or reference as to what actually constitutes an authority link or authority site. Authority links bring enormous ranking power to your website if you are lucky enough to secure one or more. On the other hand, authority sites represent established educational and government institutions, leading websites, or large corporations and these sites or organizations will surely become the market-leading sites.

Authority links are very crucial for link building. These links are quite difficult to get, due to this many webmasters do not get them so easily. The best way to get the authority links is to be observant of opportunities and chances to obtain them. But that doesn’t mean that you will have to waste your valuable time in seeking those links out, instead try to achieve something else for your website, which maybe gives you a fruitful result.

This discussion has helped us to understand the concept of the power of various inbound links, and hence we can say that no two links have got the same power. The PageRank of a page where the link appears, the degree of the authority of a site, and the number of outbound links on a page upon which your link appears will definitely affect the relative value of all the links that you obtain.
Hence almost all the links, even the lower value links are worthwhile. Sometimes, there may be some situations where you may have to accept the lower value links in higher volumes. So go for it. Every link is good for your website rankings. Do not always think that high-authority links and high-PageRank links are only worth getting.

Link Anchor Text – the vital concept in Link building

Link anchor text is a set of words that embodies the link’s visible text. These Link Anchor Texts are the “blue underlined text”. The anchor text is a strong ranking factor and helps Google to get and reach the subject and content of the destination page.
