What Is Link Popularity?

Link popularity is the number of times that a search engine can reference your website links from other sites around the web. The higher the number, the better it is for you. Some search engines rank websites higher based on the number of inbound links. Google, particularly, considers link popularity in its rankings. Therefore, a task for every webmaster is to seek out good links and build up your link popularity.

There are, of course, a number of ways to increase your link popularity, including:

  • Social bookmarking
  • Search engine submissions
  • Article marketing
  • Link trading
  • Link requests
  • Directory submissions
  • Blogging
  • Blog commenting
  • Forum posting
  • Link buying (however, if Google finds out you are doing this then you can be penalized – even de-indexed)
  • Link baiting
