Title: Content V/S Backlinks
Post by: JohnVilson on 09-17-2015, 01:38:21
As we all know that Backlinks is a important part of SEO, in other hand, Content is King in today's modern SEO. I am little confused now, What is considered as more significant, creating content or building backlinks?

You can do both. If you have good content, you'll have good quality backlinks. You post your content as guest posts on other websites that are somehow related to your niche, they backlink to your website. Usually those pages are of high PR, so it boosts your rankings.
As guest posting takes some time (you send your articles and then wait for the response), in the meantime you can work on backlinks from directories, comments etc.

Guest posting is a clever idea if u got what to say - find some popular sites.
A friend of mine start his business like that - he got a post in popular news media about Google AdWords. Now he get 200k per month from Google AdWords management.

Content is an important part of ranking your keywords in search engines. A unique content will help to improve keyword ranking faster in search engines. Backlinks also play a major role in build domain trust and generate traffic to your website from various external sources.

 It's a kind of like a trustworthy person by association. So seek out backlinks from large established companies who produce relevant content.

Instead of Discussing Content v/s Backlinks. Better to discuss Content and Backlinks. Because of these days if we don't build Quality content or backlinks Google is penalizing the websites. Here, I am giving quality backlinks who are submitting the quality content.

Here are my website URL: Writers Evoke (https://www.writersevoke.com/)

Content plays more important role then backlink. Backlink are useful to generate traffic but if a visitor comes to your website and he did not get what he was searching for so he would not come back to you again and did not refer other towards your website. On the other hand if a user gets what he was searching for so he come back to you again and again and refer other towards your website.

The first thing you should take care about is content. Because content is the main thing in every webpage so if your content is good your page ranking can improve easily and can easily crawl by google.

Both of them are equally important. One is incomplete without the other.Linking building and content both go hand in hand. Either building links without strong and engaging content or developing high quality content but not an effective link building strategy, both are a failure.

I would not compare backlinks vs content, but be more focus on content with beneficial information that will surely help your target users.

When considering the importance of SEO, it is a combination of both backlinks and content. The website is empty without content and will not be ranked without any backlinks.

The one carrying the most weight is Content with quality, which keeps users intact. Backlinks provide ranking and traffic and Content hold the traffic.

Both content creation and backlink building are important. While there is not a straight answer to what is most important since SEO is not about doing any one thing. While doing SEO you have to take several other factors into consideration. i.e. Content creation is on-page activity which might help you to earn you external links if you product quality linkable content while building backlinks is off-page activity.

For SEO, quality content and quality backlinks both are the major terms used to keep the reputation of the website on a top. With the best quality content, you can achieve the quality backlinks.

Without content, you can't create a backlink. Yes, if you do any profile creation work that needs a business description (that is also a content), if you approach for a classified post that is also content. So for SEO "Content is the KING". If your blog does not have unique information, interesting content that will not be accepted guest blogging in a good site.

Both Content & Backlinks are important factors for SEO.
Great & Quality Contents & having more number of Backlinks can boost the website conversion rate, ranking factor & social signals.

First, create good content, then approach to good DA sites for link building. Sometimes you can outreach other sites for link building first then offer them good content to post (guest blogging)
