What is Netlinking?
Netlinking is the art of creating quality hypertext links between your web pages and other reliable, relevant and SEO friendly websites. More specifically, developing your netlinking involves building a good network of backlinks, or inbound links, as much as possible with well-referenced websites, having a good e-reputation and generating a regular flow of traffic.
What is netlinking for?
Weaving a good mesh of external links between your web pages and the rest of the web is essential for your SEO and digital marketing. While fuelling your daily traffic, in quality and quantity, your netlinking strategy is the lever that allows you to make a difference in terms of natural referencing, provided that you are consistent and respect good practices.
Increase and improve your visitor flow with netlinking
The main function of a hyperlink is to go from one web page to another with a single click. The primary purpose of your netlinking is therefore to bring new visitors directly to your website.
If you choose the source of your backlinks, with the right keywords, on web pages corresponding to the navigation territories of your target audience, your netlinking attracts a better selected flow of visitors, and therefore potential customers.
Netlinking is a pillar of your SEO
Developing your netlinking is essential to your organic referencing. Historically and even today, the quality of your netlinking is a major criterion of Google to define your PageRank and your positioning.
The more inbound links you get from reliable websites that are consistent with your industry, the more Google will give you credibility and give better visibility to your website in its results pages. Why ?
Netlinking, the source of Google and its amazing success
Google is constantly looking for reliable and relevant sources of information on the internet in order to provide the best possible search results to internet users and their requests. If many websites in your industry contain hyperlinks pointing to yours, this means that you are recognised as a credible reference, a reputed authority in your field.
Netlinking is the ranking criterion that contributed to the birth of Google and the success of its algorithm. Naturally, measuring the quality of your backlinks remains one of its main sorting principles. Therefore, it is impossible to neglect your netlinking if you wish for better SEO.
What is a good incoming link and what is a quality backlink?
To be beneficial to your SEO, a good link must be placed on a web page of high quality, within a well referenced, visited, and reliable website. The content of the page on which the backlink is positioned must be SEO-friendly and relevant to the theme of your site.
Ideally, the clickable word of the external link should redirect the user to a page on your site that is well structured around the same semantic field, in order to reinforce your natural referencing on these keywords.
If you have chosen the original web page and built your landing web page well, a good link should bring you targeted visitors, increase your conversion rate, and generate new sales.
Of course, if you want to increase your visibility for the French market, you must seek French backlinks. It can be hard to do for foreign companies, that is why SEO.fr offers full-on service including searching for quality backlinks, writing matching articles, and putting them online.
How to measure the quality of your backlinks?
In order to study the performance of your external links, multiple criteria and measurement tools have been created. The quality level of a backlink, or inbound link (leading to your site), can be precisely measured according to several indicators, called “metrics”.
The DA or Domain Authority is a score ranging from 0 to 100, taking into account the quality of the netlinking of the evaluated website. Applied to a web page, this rating given by Moz.com is the PA, or “Page Authority”.
The TF or Trust Flow is an index aimed at gauging the credibility and reliability of a site or a page and its contents. This indicator of 0 to 100 is calculated by Majestic SEO, from a database of backlinks and a list of reference websites on the Internet.
The CF or Citation Flow is the popularity index of a website or web page. The Citation Flow is also evaluated by Majestic SEO, on a scale of 0 to 100 and takes into account all the hyperlinks. The ratio between TrustFlow and Citation Flow gives you an idea of the SEO potential of a site on which to create a backlink. Several other metrics exist, such as PR or Google PageRank, etc.
Tools for measuring the quality of backlinks
To check the quality of your inbound links, as well as your SEO performance, many measurement tools exist on the internet, more or less efficient, in free or paid version. Among the most famous ones, you will of course find Ahref, Majestic SEO and SEMRush. At SEO.fr, we use reference metrics and professional measurement tools to assess your backlinking in detail and develop your netlinking.
How to launch a netlinking campaign for your SEO?
What are the benefits of a netlinking campaign?
A good netlinking campaign has a major positive impact on your SEO; however, you still need to know how to successfully do it. A smart linkbuilding campaign also brings you new, well-qualified traffic right away.
Indeed, the deployment of a targeted link strategy consists in capturing some of the visitors of the websites on which the hyperlinks lead to yours. In this sense, a good netlinking campaign offers you the opportunity to find your target visitors, your customers, directly on their digital land of choice.
The benefit of a netlinking campaign is double: the optimisation of your SEO and the acquisition of a selected flow of new visitors within your target audience. By activating these two levers, your linkbuilding campaign has a direct influence on your visibility, on your conversion rate, and, therefore, on your sales revenues.
When to do a netlinking campaign?
A good netlinking campaign must be launched at the right time. Your website must be ready and a number of criteria must be met. Otherwise, creating links would be useless, even harmful for your image and your SEO.
