One of the most widely used services is bit.ly, which was founded in 2007 by Ben Suarez (CEO) and Danny Keklikian (CTO). Today, bit.ly is a top 1,000 website, and it's been optimized for mobile. It has over 4,000 registered users, and according to Alexa it is ranked as the 822nd most popular website in the world. In fact, when people type a longer link into their browser, they are very likely to be sent to bit.ly/shortened-link instead of the actual destination link you have created. This means more traffic to your site.

In conclusion, I would like to say that if you do decide to use URL shortening, make sure it is done via a service like bit.ly because it is free, easy to use, and very effective. Now that you know how and why to use URL shorteners, let's move on to another important element of creating great backlinks... The Anchor Text Of Your Link! Anchor text is the actual copy you type or type into your browser which appears beside your shortened link. This is the "trigger" which gets Google to understand what your link is all about.

Obviously, you want to choose the anchor text that best describes your link. I will go over what to look for in your anchor text, and then I will share my thoughts and experiences in regards to choosing anchor text. The first step to choosing anchor text is to have a solid understanding of what it is, and why it is important. You might have heard people talking about it but haven’t ever really understood exactly what it was until now. In this article we are going to talk about: • Why is it important? • What are the best anchor text to use for each link building technique? • How to use the most effective anchor text?

For example: Inbound, Outbound, Natural, and Pre-Targeted backlinks. Anchor Text: Why Is It Important? The main reason people use anchor text is to describe the destination of their link. Google doesn't always display the actual word you type into your browser when someone clicks on your shortened link. However, if the word or phrase you use as anchor text describes the destination of your link (i.e. the website you are sending people to), then it helps Google understand what your link is all about. It makes your link more relevant to people's search queries. More relevant links mean Google trusts your site more and believes you are an authority on the subject the link is about. This is important because Google believes websites with more relevant links are more trustworthy and has a better chance of ranking higher in the search results.

Later on, we will cover different techniques you can use to create backlinks to your site. When choosing which backlink technique to use, it's important to consider which kind of anchor text you want to use. For example, if you choose to use a "one-way" backlink, you should use descriptive anchor text that describes the content of the destination website. If you choose to use a "two-way" backlink, you should use more generic anchor text. The two main types of two-way backlinks are: • Page Rank Backlinks: These are links that point back to your website from other websites. When you buy a page rank backlink, the link is added to the website it links to. Google believes that these backlinks represent the trustworthiness of the website and that the websites are relevant to each other. • Incoming Links: These are links that come from websites you don't own. It is important to get these types of backlinks because Google likes them. They look like real traffic.

Again, more relevance equals more trust, and therefore, a better chance of ranking high in the search results. How do you measure the effectiveness of your backlinks? There are many different ways to do this. Here are a few of the most common ones: Anchor Text Diversity: This simply means using a variety of different words and phrases as anchor text. It is important to have some diversity because if all your links use the same exact anchor text, it gives Google an indication that maybe your site isn’t as trustworthy as it could be. Some experts believe having no diversity at all is worse than having too much. I personally don’t agree with this. Personally, I think too much diversity can be just as bad as no diversity at all. What I believe is true is that too much of a good thing is not as good as having just a little bit of a good thing. I think the best way to achieve anchor text diversity is to use the "Honey Badger Technique". The Honey Badger Technique: If you don't know what it is, don’t worry about it. Just keep reading.

Besides, the Honey Badger has been on the SEO scene for quite some time now. If you’re not familiar with it, then let me explain it to you. The Honey Badger is a type of animal that uses aggressive techniques to get food and protect itself. It is one of the most successful animals in the world. To create backlinks, you need to have a blog or website that is relevant and popular enough to be worthy of linking to. You can choose to buy backlinks from a company that promises to get thousands of high-quality links at a low cost, or you can choose to buy natural backlinks that come from websites that are already receiving a good amount of traffic. For example, you can use Reddit as a source of free backlinks. You just need to submit your content (which goes on Reddit) to relevant communities, and you will be able to get a lot of links. Google doesn't want to send "spam" traffic to your site, so it's important to choose quality over quantity when it comes to link building.
