Links are Proof that Google Loves Us and Wants Us to be Happy

So much of SEO success is off-page, which means you must have high-quality links to your site from a variety of places. If you’re new to link building, you probably have some questions regarding this process.

  1. Where should these links come from?
  2. How many links are enough?
  3. What does PageRank actually mean?
  4. What is considered high-quality?
  5. If only PR 10 .edu sites link to me, will I be forever golden in the eyes of Google?

These are tough questions to answer. Even veterans of the link building services industry may have a difficult time explaining the do’s and don’ts to clients in a way that makes complete sense. In fact, at Vertical Measures, we have had the same issue more times than we can count. That’s why we have created an infographic, or “linkfographic” if you will, to better explain the challenge of developing that natural dispersion of links.

If all of this is giving you a headache and you’d rather just give up and have a beer, then this infographic may be the answer to your problems. After much linking and drinking (much more linking), we decided that comparing beer to links makes more sense than you may think. Cheers!
