ARS Technica Com: How to get featured

Backink from ARS Technica to increase your domain authority

A link is an HTML reference that allows the user to click and visit another page. That’s the simplest definition of a link. When someone is on a website and they want to go to another page, that piece of text or image highlighted can be clicked and it will take them to the next page. So when we are talking about building links, what we mean is that we are going to go out and acquire those links from external sites and use them ourselves. So anytime we are talking about links, we are typically talking about those little pieces that have HTML codes, by clicking on those the user leave that page and land to another page in the same or in a different browser window. Optimizing the number and quality of links your site has, it is was called off-site SEO.

Looking for a First-Class Brand Consultant?

The good news is that you no longer need to buy links.
We have listed some of the top journalists from ARS Technica, to whom you can pitch your product or service in order to gain earned media coverage.

How many links do you need to rank well? Or, more specifically, how many links do I need to rank higher than my competitors?
The answer to this is completely dependent on the keywords you’re trying to rank for. As you can imagine, there is much less competition for some keywords than others. For instance, if you’re trying to rank for “best personal trainer in Santa Cruz,” there will likely not be lots of competition; there may be a bunch of people there trying to rank for that same keyword as well, but it is likely that they haven’t optimized their websites and they probably can’t afford someone to do SEO for them. So, you are looking for keywords with a lower level of competition, unlike kewyords like “Los Angeles real estate” or “Restaurant in New York” that instead are very competitive. This is going to be heavily competitive. So it’s not necessarily about how many links you have: it all starts with the keywords for which you are trying to rank. Another consideration is the quality of the links, rather than simply their quantity.
