How to get backlink fast?

In the world of World Wide Web, back-link is a well known word. With
some 150 million websites online, it is not easy to stay on top of
all these sites. Traffic for a website comes in many different ways
and the traffic from search engines is the most desired. Unless
your site is a popular one like Yahoo or MSN, you have to rely on
the search engines for your traffic. Not only is search engine
traffic important, but it will increase your revenue by bringing
the right kind of visitors to your website. That is what we call
targeted traffic. For example, if somebody has a website related to
software, it doesn't do any good getting visitors who are looking
for free songs. Each website needs visitors who are specifically in
the market for their product, whether for personal or business use.
The search engines will help you get the targeted visitors who are
specifically interested in your products or services.

It is not easy to be listed on the first page of the search engines
for a particular search word or keyword. While it is easy to get
indexed in the search engines without any back-links to your
website, it is nearly impossible for a site to get visitors from
search engines without back-links. Search engines will often give
greater importance to the sites that have more backlinks, putting
those websites at the top of the list. A backlink is shortcut to
your website placed in the content of other websites around the
world. Increasing the number of backlinks to your site will
increase your website's importance in the search engines. The
search engine will consider each backlink to your site as a single
credit for your site. Therefore, more credits means your website is
more popular, pushing your website to the top of the list. Google
gives more importance to these backlinks than any other search
engine. Other search engines will include content in their website
evaluation. However, Google, being the most popular search engine
receives 68 percent of the search traffic on the internet. So it is
advisable to develop your site in a way that takes advantage of
Google's evaluation technique.

The quality of a backlink is even more important than the number of
backlinks. It's of no use getting a backlink from a website having
a lower page rank than yours (Page rank is the score given by
Google for every single site according to their popularity). So
before going to get a backlink from a site, the first thing you
should check should be the popularity, or page rank, of the site
where the backlink is placed. Furthermore, it is wise to get
backlinks from sites that cover topics similar to the topics
covered on your site. Even though a search engine doesn't care
about the origin of the backlink, getting backlinks from sites
similar to yours will help you build more targeted traffic.

Though backlinks are not everything for the success of a website,
they are extremely valuable if used properly. By establishing a
large number of quality backlinks to your site, your website
traffic will increase measurably.
