A significant part of search engine optimization has to do with links. Inbound links are very important to a new and developing site.
There are three reasons why you want to have inbound links.
One of the most important things to understand about search engine optimization is that the more high quality inbound links the better.
A search engine will rank a page higher if it 'sees' other pages, on the same topic, linking to that page.
If a website links to your page with a high quality link it makes your page seem even more valuable. What makes a high quality inbound link?
Suppose you have a web page about Italian food. In this case a very high quality inbound link:
As you can see it has to do with being on the same topic. Even being close to the same topic can be good. But, suppose 20 sites about "football" linked to your Italian Foods page. Would Google think these "football" links proved that your Italian food site has value? Probably not. Those 20 links aren't worth very much as far as search engines go because they are not on the same topic or nearly the same topic as Italian food.
One of the most important link building tips is: Try to get inbound links pointing to your site that have content on the same or a similar subject - the closer the better.
