Profile Linking is an excellent tool in SEO to promote a website. Creating the right link profile includes placing links on review sites, social networks, blogs and forums, and news services.

There are four types of backlinks, and each of them plays a different role in promoting a website. Anchor links are textual hyperlinks that integrate directly into the text. Unanchored links which do not masquerade as text, but look like a normal URL-promoted page. Next is the eternal backlinks, which are placed indefinitely. And lastly are temporary links, which are usually cheaper than eternal links and not recommended for quality link building.

So exactly what is profile linking in SEO? We’ll explore this question in greater detail below.

How to promote your site

The extent to which search engines trust a site determines the ranking, and the level of trust in a resource depends on trust. A few years ago, search engine algorithms were much less advanced, so really useful and high-quality resources did not end up on the first page of results. Google’s PageRank link ranking algorithm objectifies ranking: it works in a way that sites receive a ranking place that determines the page’s authority to others. This ranking rises if other pages with good authority link to the page.

First, user activity on the public page is tracked and analyzed by search engines, thus links to communities may seem in search results along with the main website. Interesting content with links increases users clicking on those links. They share this content on all social networks, thereby increasing website traffic. The third one is the links themselves, which can increase the authority of the site. On top of that, it’s worth including indirect factors such as user behavior, site integration, and fast indexing on social networks.

Link Profile Analysis

As it became clear the profile linking is an important tool for promotion, it also became clear that this strategy requires quality organization. A simple increase in external links does not guarantee an increase in site traffic. Profile links should be different, have their own authority, and coincide with the theme of the promoting website.

As the natural increase in link building occurs gradually, a sharp increase in the number of incoming links can cause a negative reaction of search engines and lower positions in extradition. Search engines have learned to find unnatural links, and now some clever competitors send paid links to another competitor’s site, thereby lowering its place.

An analysis of the link profile of the site is just what you need to avoid such mistakes and build a proper link mass. To know how to bring your site to the top you need to analyze the link mass of your competitors, who are already in the top. Doing this is necessary to see how they did it and to see donors from which there is good traffic. With periodic analysis, you will see which links are good and which need to be removed, so as not to get a surprise later from search engines in the form of a strike.


Link ranking was created to improve quality of search engine results, and search engines are constantly introducing new filters to combat cheating techniques. The goal is to have quality links that help improve your search engine ranking. Therefore, to promote your site you need to follow these simple rules. Generate quality content, promote it on trusted sites and social networks, and learn from the mistakes of your competitors by analyzing their link profiles. Keep in mind that page authority is more important than the authority of the site. Promote pages with high-quality content that link back to your site.
