For example, if abc.com is a website and xyz is the title of a blog post that they have written. You are searching for xyz on Google and you found the website abc.com to be the 5th result and you choose it.
Like this, if many people choose abc.com for the keyword xyz, abc.com will change its position on the search result to upwards. Click rate is really important for ranking higher on searches. Google gives preference to the result that gets more click. If more people choose a particular post for a particular keyword then Google finds that post to be more useful for people and will move that post to the higher position on search results. After all search engines just need their results to be the best and a company like Google would definitely make sure that their results are worth it. Create titles that tent people to click on it.

Backlinks – Best Link Building Tips
Whenever a post is written on SEO techniques, Backlinks would be there. Backlinks are links from other websites that point to your website. Link building is the only was to have a better result, even if your content is unique and of great value, backlinks are the backbone of your blog. Without backlinks, you won’t be getting good results. Creating Backlinks is not easy. If you ever have a plan for buying backlinks, never do it. If you are having a new blog without any backlinks and if you buy backlinks al of a sudden then you could get a penalized by Google. So never buy backlinks. The problem is that many don’t know have a proper idea on how to build links to your website.
How to build links to your website?
The best way to build backlinks is writing great contents. Yes, writing good contents will make other bloggers link back to you. But in many cases why someone should link to you, that too if it is not that good for their SEO. So, what you could do is create an infographic of the post. Find the blogs according to the search result for your keyword or just find the blog which has niche similar to yours. Email those blog owners and give them your infographics. Give the infographics as embed code and include a link to your blog along with it.
Find broken links from quality blogs and create similar article similar to the article on the broken link with higher quality. Contact the blog owner and let them know of the broken links on their website and provide them your blog post link. This could earn you a high-quality backlink for your website. You could get a new blog post and a backlink and the person linking to your website will get an article to replace their broken link. This is one of the most widely used methods for building backlinks. You could get many paid and free tool to find broken links on a website. You just have to find them, write a post on that topic and get backlinks. Backlinks are the backbones of your website. Go start building Backlinks today itself.
Guest posting another way of building backlink. The problem with Guest posting is that you would have to write quality content that too for other websites. Even though you get a backlink from them in return this is not appreciated by me. I am not saying that Guest posting is wrong or its bad, still it’s not recommended by me because you could utilize that time to create an awesome content on your blog and others would naturally link back to you if your content is worth it. Writing on your blog will increase the amount of content on your blog and this would result in the increasing of your organic traffic. Guest posting is also one of the ways in which you could earn backlinks.
Content with a minimum of 5000 Words
Quality Content is always the best SEO techniques which would never change. It is Very important to have Content with at least 5000 words.

Keywords, the term itself makes us feel like its smaller in length. After the implementation of Humming Bird Algorithm, long queries are given much importance. Keeping your keyword long could help you have the first position in the search for those searches which matches more. Using long tail keywords is better for ranking for those quires that are longer in length. Not all the searcher is shorter, isn’t it? So, having posts with long tail keywords would help you to rank.
