What are Backlinks?
Backlinks are simply “votes” by other websites that list your website or page URL in an article or post on their website. The more respected the website featuring your link, the more respect it gets from Google. Typically the more quality backlinks, the greater the benefit for SEO. Here is an example of a backlink used in Search Engine Optimization.

Q: Will my site rank high in the search engines if I select the right keywords and get back links to my pages?
A: As far as effective SEO, getting back links and selecting the right keywords are important but if you are trying to rank locally the best thing to do is get local citations. Also, get active on Facebook, Twitter, Google plus, and linkedin. These social signals are measured by Google’s algorithm and will help you get on page one.
If you haven’t done it already, take a look at your competition and see where they are ranking on Google. Do a Google search for the type of business you want to rank. For example if you are a wedding photographer, google: wedding photographer dallas texas. Change out the city/state for your own. Google will show you the paid ads at the top, then the organic search results, then you will see a listing of google+ sites (this is why you need a google+ site), and then more organic searches. Google will also put in “bold” the keyword each company is ranking for with your search term.
Most important of all, don’t get overwhelmed and do nothing. Get started now as SEO ranking requires patience and time.
