Link Building

What are Links and why should you buIld them?

Links, more correctly backlinks, are doorways in other parts of the web which lead back to your site. Actually they're what's called "hypertext" links meaning if you click on one of them, you'll jump out of the webpage you're currently on, out into the virtual "hyperspace" of the internet and land at a new destination.  The destination can be your homepage, any other page on your site or even a text anchor on one of your pages.  The latter is known as "deep linking".  A link to your site might look like "Your site name" in highlighted text or an image or a logo.  But the html code (that stands for hypertext markup language) behind it is of a standard form.  There are ways to get the destination site to open in the current window or to invoke a new separate window in your web browser.
