Do Your Backlinks Suck In Quality?

Here is a great whiteboard video from Rand Fishkin from SEO Moz convering the different types of backlinks webmasters acquire. He covers the 4 categories of backlinks. Hopefully you are not in the blog commenting, guestbook, link farm spammy category. Although guestbooks and link farms are pretty much dead, there is still a ton of people that go on blog commenting rampages and you have to ask yourself if it is worth the effort. I think not. So do your backlinks suck or are they in the the better two categories?

Nice video. I visit that site (SEOMoz)only occassionally. I didn't know about the Whiteboard Friday feature.

So what category would this put the links in created using FreeTrafficSystem? Seems to me they would fall into the better or best category.

@Kelly, I would rank it between the second and third category.

Why would you say that Dave when Free Traffic System is CLEARLY a blog farm??

@Anonymous I see it as a step below Article directories. All of the FTS blogs do not link together. Thus categorized between 2 & 3!

Dave...a blog network does not link together either. Most of the sites are purposefully not linked together to try and hide them, however they are designed to funnel link juice to the money site.....exactly like Free Traffic System.

No big deal...I just find it odd that you would put that horrible network up (FTS) up as something good...most of the blogs are pieces of junk and it's an obvious and blatant blog farm.

To each their own I guess.

@Anonymous To each their own, I guess. I stand by my ranking of it. It is what is and by no means should it be the focal point of your link building strategy like I have said in the past. Also if you read this blog at all, I have said that I think one should use FTS MOSTLY to point to your free articles submitted to eZines. No one says you have to use it. That is the beauty of the internets.
