Fewer Links, but Better Rankings

December 13, 2006

Hi Jill,

 

I have better backlinks than my competitor and my site is also optimized,
but why is my competitorís ranking better than mine? Our backlinks are
around 90 and the competitorís backlinks are around 55. What can I do for
better rankings than the competitor?

 

Thanks,

 

DS

Hi DS,

 

Itís important to note that the number of backlinks your site has is not as
important as the quality of those backlinks.  So basically, youíll need to
have a great site that attracts other high-quality sites to link to it.

 

You may also want to read the SEO articles at my site for more info on
optimizing sites in general.
