|1. Why link building is like losing weight|
Link building is one of the most important things that you have to do if you want to get high rankings on Google and other major search engines. SEO blogger Gyutae Park recently compared link building with losing weight.
Indeed, there are many parallels. The following points illustrate why link building is like losing weight and how this can help you to get better results.
Fact 1: Link building takes hard work and there are no shortcuts
Fact 2: You have to be consistent
Fact 3: There are a lot of scammers
Fact 4: It's possible to trick the system but you won't get lasting results
Fact 5: The result is worth it
All webmasters know what it takes to get better search engine rankings. You have to optimize your web pages and you have to get good inbound links. For some reason, most webmasters don't do it. Instead, they're trying desperately to find shortcuts and loopholes to get all the benefits without doing the work.
You have the choice: Don't fall for rip-off products that promise easy and quick results without much work. These products won't work and they often put your website at risk because Google considers them spamming.
