Why are backlinks important?
The simple answer to that would be “It boosts your websites SERP”.
Backlinks are important for several reasons:
- Search engines view backlinks as a sign of the credibility and relevance of a website. If a website has a lot of backlinks, it is more likely to rank well in search engine results pages (SERPs). This is because search engines view backlinks as a vote of confidence in the quality of the website.
- Backlinks can help to increase the visibility of your website. When other websites link to your website, it is more likely that people will discover your website through these links. This can lead to more traffic and potentially more customers.
- Backlinks can help to improve the authority of your website. When high-quality websites link to your website, it can signal to search engines that your website is a trusted and reputable source of information. This can help to improve your search engine rankings and make it easier for people to find your website.
- Backlinks can help to improve the user experience of your website. If other websites link to your website, it can provide additional resources and information for users to explore. This can make your website more useful and valuable to visitors.
Overall, backlinks are an important factor in search engine optimization (SEO) and can help to improve the credibility, visibility, and authority of your website but you need to ensure you do not buy backlinks or get spammy backlinks as that would penalize your website.
How Many Backlinks Can Your Build on a Daily Basis?
So now you may now have a good strategy to build backlinks like Guest Blogging or article submissions or even some magical strategy but the question remains how many backlinks can you create in 24 hours?
How Many Backlinks Per Day Is Safe?
how many backlinks is it wise to add every month?
this takes me to,
How many backlinks should I have to create in one day?
The number of backlinks you can create in a single day depends on the balance between legitimate, earned links and spammy links. If you earn your links through high-quality content and genuine outreach, there is no limit to the number of backlinks you can create. However, if you use spam tactics to buy links, the limit is the point at which Google detects and penalizes your website for this behavior.
Elon Musk earned about 11000 links in a couple of days to the URL for his flamethrower. That would be seen as legit as there is a perfectly legitimate reason for it. If you build that many to a site and there is no reason, you are very likely getting penalized at some point.
News items and some POPULAR news items do get several backlinks in a day – and if an international news item broke then hundreds/thousands of backlinks could occur naturally.
Also, please stop looking for magic bullets like the max number of links you can build, min length a piece of content has to be, how many times you can mention a keyword… Google has moved WAY beyond such simplistic calculations and the answer is always going to be “it depends”, “does it make sense?”, etc.
Here is food for brain,
So if the news comes out that a mattress store just offered their mattresses, free for displaced families to stay at until disaster recovery could begin, I could end up having a ton of links and citations to my site…
That happened to the owner of a chain of mattress stores in the floods down south last year.
In my experience (yours may vary), proper Public Relations, newsworthiness, or outstandingly strong educational, or entertaining, or otherwise controversial or interesting content creation on site, can often result in many links in a very short period. All valid.
I think it really comes down to how and why, and from what places, links get created.
You can get as many backlinks as you want as long as they all are legit however if they are not then don’t do it because you will be caught and all that work that you put into your website will be wasted.
Google is smart and gets smarted every day so don’t try to stick it to them and you will be just fine.
