Summary: Quality backlinks certainly play an important role in maximizing your SEO strategy and improving your website’s performance. It’s a highly manual process that simply cannot be automated. It’s one of the reasons why link building can be costly when targeting a lot of keyphrases. When you come across various services that claim to get you quality backlinks for $5, remember, just like a car, you get what you pay for, and you are likely paying for something that can cause more harm than good. Just make sure not to overuse backlinks to other sites in your own site, and do your best to attract quality backlinks from places like associated product sites, social media platforms, and industry influencers. Be patient, stay diligent, and as time goes on chances are good you will start to garner high-quality backlinks in a variety of forms. Just don’t get complacent. Make sure to frequently perform backlink audits to catch toxic backlinks early, and then make every effort to have them removed.
