Search engine optimization is broken down into two basic areas: on-page, and off-page optimization.

White Hat Link Building

The best SEO companies are the ones focused on the quality of links versus the quantity of links. Backlinks are links that other websites make to your content by sharing or highlighting one of your blog posts, videos, etc. By creating these connections with other reputable sites, Google will acknowledge the legitimacy and credibility of your business and may improve your search engine rankings.

It’s important to understand, however, that these links must be obtained in an ethical manner through content creation and partnerships. Purchasing these links is a “black hat” SEO practice that is not endorsed by search engines or companies like IT4SME.
