This week’s Ask An SEO questions are from Deepinder in Toronto who asked:
“1. I have worked on multiple projects. I have seen websites with 1,000 backlinks beat websites with 100,000 backlinks. And the same 1,000 backlinks site beaten by a content currating/stealing(copy paste content with a backlink to source) website.
So, how important are backlinks as ranking factors?
- Is getting 1,000-3,000 backlinks from one site seen as spam? Because I have seen some good companies doing that.”
I’d like to start by answering the second question first.
