Can You Rank Without Backlinks?
So you have just launched your new blog. Now what? How to get traffic to your new blog is the big question.
Backlinks, sites linking to your site, can give your site more authority in the eyes of search engines. But they need to be natural.
One of the tasks that I absolutely dislike is link building. Perhaps I should qualify that statement by saying that it is manual, artificial link building that I detest.
Fortunately, artificial link building is frowned upon by Google anyway. If a site can attract links from other sites in a natural way, then that site is on the right path. Those links represent a stamp of approval from other websites.
But it takes content to attract other sites naturally linking to your blog.
