Low quality backlinks usually comes from unrelated and untrusted sources. These sources are sites that have been penalized and those that are violating Google’s Webmaster Guidelines can have a negative impact on your SEO.
To avoid having low quality backlinks, you will have to perform a quick website audit on every site that you plan to have your links displayed on.
See the problem with most people today is that we don’t research enough and almost everyone that decides to be enthusiastic about websites and creating their own blog’s or starting an online campaign is that they run into it head first without thinking about the consequences, I mean yes you learned how to create a web page or a blog post using WordPress or other famous software but never really took the time out to learn about building Quality backlinks and that’s why you see most people post their backlinks on just about everything on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Tagged, instagram etc.
That’s not good enough and frankly creating backlinks via comments or reviews on social media or other websites not related to your Niche is considered a low backlink and yes google does check those but they are not good enough to get you anywhere close to Google’s front page and that’s the ultimate goal for everyone to have their websites sitting at #1 on google.
For example: For a long time now article marketing has been one of the best and most effective ways to get quality backlinks to your blog, even though this method works there are some things you must consider when trying to get backlinks through article marketing.
This is not as great as guest posting and one thing which is very important, do article marketing on relevant websites only.For example, if you are a SEO company, you should post content on an article directory which is only targeting SEO niche.
I see people having websites that is directly dealing food and they still try to create back links on websites that’s the total opposite, STOP IT.
