Backlinks are extremely important to the scope of Search Engine Optimization. In fact, they are some of the main building blocks to a good real estate SEO plan. But what are backlinks? Backlinks are simply links to your site. EASY! They are also sometimes called incoming links, inbound links, inlinks, or inward links. The search engines love backlinks. They see backlinks like votes for your site. The more votes you have, the better your SEO rankings will be. There are many techniques you can use to increase the number of backlinks pointing to website. Let's look at some!
Make sure all your social media sites include a link back to your site. Include Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and Twitter. Share content from your website occasionally on sites like Google+ and LinkedIn.
Bookmark every page of your website, and every blog post, on all the popular bookmarking sites. I recommend using Digg, Delicious, Reddit, StumbleUpon, and Tumblr. A great way to get extra bookmarks is to ask your friend to exchange backlinks with you – you bookmark their site pages, and they bookmark yours!
