    Incoming links from other sites are especially useful for your SEO campaigns because they can improve the search engine ranking of your website. Search engines check links to your site from other sites to help find out what your site is about. These links are important because they also help to tell the search engines how popular your site is. The contemporary wisdom on links and SEO is that it is the relevance and quality of the websites that link to your site that matters the most not the number of incoming links.

    Yes, I totally agree. Quality rather than quantity of the backlinks matters a lot as far as search engines are concerned. If the incoming links to our site is from authority domain, than search engines considers our site to be reputed.

    May i know why do you target same keywords for 2 websites. What benefit do you expect to come? Change your link building strategy and diversify your keywords.

    yeap, it is so but you are to be really raceful as your ranking may saffer if you link to the link farm but you will win if everything will be v.v. as you will not control those who link to you and you will not get a penalty.

    Incoming links or nothing but the backlinks for your site. The backlink should be from related theme and from high page rank domains. Backlink from high page rank helps in ranking a site and also your site will be getting a good page rank.

    Google recently implemented penguin update which is nothing but the links that comes from low quality websites or from un related domains will not help anymore in getting your site ranked in search engines.

    I don't think he uses same keyword for 2 different sites, maybe they're 2 sites in the same niche. So he will get backlinks that look from quality site.

    Incoming links are links placed on other websites that link to your site. They work as a referral for your site and, like in everyday life, there a good referrals and bad referrals. To get the good referrals, you want to have quality websites linking to you. For that, you want to check the Page Rank of the website that is linking to yours first. There are many tools for checking a site’s Page Rank available on the Internet.

    I've seen this done by larger companies with bigger budgets and it can prove to be a very good strategy. It can help you create a kind of online monopoly for your niche. Think about it for a second... If you have 10 websites on the same niche, and the budget to get them all to the first page, over 90% of searches for that niche will result in clicks to your websites, which is kind of a monopoly, right?

    Do you think does google will allow this. Search engines are not just for you. Google can easily find your network of same niche sites. I guess this is a wrong strategy.

    Do not forget that the backlinks are not the only thing important for the ranking. The external links from your site have a big value, as well. Especially if the last ones are linking to reliable sources such as Wikipedia, for instance.

    Not necessarily. I have worked for people who wished for a few of their sites to rank well for the same keyword. In the end, they ended up having 3-4 sites in top 10 and they are still there.

    To be successful in SEO may seem like a long shot if you do not know what you’re doing. Search engine optimization doesn’t require advanced skills compared to programming and web development. To do this, search for targeted keywords as people usually type similarly whenever they need particular information. There are lots of strategies accessible online in conducting SEO.
