How to judge the quality of a linking page

When you build links to your website, you want lasting results. It does not make sense to invest your time in search engine optimization methods that are just a flash-in-the-pan.

How do you judge the quality of a website? What is a good website and from which web pages should you get links?

Do not focus on Google PageRank or similar metrics

Many webmasters only want to get backlinks from pages with a particular PageRank. While you can use this method, it is usually a waste of time and it makes link building more difficult than it really is.

If a website has an overall high-quality then it does not matter if the page with the link to your website has a low Google PageRank:

If only pages with a high PageRank had a chance, it wouldn't be possible to get new pages in Google's results page. Experience shows that new pages appear in Google's results every day.

In addition, the PageRank that Google publicly displays is not the actual PageRank that Google uses in its algorithm, and the PageRank value can be manipulated.

Common sense leads to lasting results

You do not need special metrics to judge the quality of a web page. When you find a web page that could link to your site, ask yourself the following questions:

If you can answer all questions with "yes," then you should try to get a backlink from that page. It doesn't matter if that page has a low PageRank.

Google tries to imitate common sense with its algorithm. If you use common sense to build your links and follow the tips above, you make sure that the backlinks to your website will count in all future updates of Google's algorithm.
