6 Factors that Judge the Quality of a Backlink

Posted by Samba Siva
Building backlinks is really important, If you want to improve your organic traffic. Many Seo experts belives that Link Building is the main ranking factor which we need to focus on.

But, According to Google, In a Nutshell, It is better to have 5 quality backlinks than 50 low quality links.

So you will have to understand, How important it is to focus on building high quality links. 

Google gives priority to quality when compared to the quantity. That's why, sometimes, A site with 30 backlinks ranks higher than a site with 100 links. But it's really rare. 

After reading the above paragraphs, Your mind should start thinking about " What makes a backlink,high quality link ? ". That's why, In this blog post, I'm going to tell you" How to Judge the quality of a backlink without any tools 


Judge backlink quality


How to judge the quality of a backlink ( Factors )



1. Nofollow or dofollow



This one needs no introduction at all. Even the beginners know the difference between Dofollow and Nofollow links.

But as per the formality, A quick information about Nofollow and dofollow links.

Nofollow is a HTML tag which tells Google not to pass link juice for the linked site from the blog. It can be useful, if you are linking to a spammed blog.

Dofollow is a HTML tag which tells Google to pass link juice from one site to another. Dofollow links are really good for improving rankings. 

We can judge the link quality by checking whether it is a dofollow or nofollow link.



2. Location of the link





Well, there are many link building techniques ranging from Blog commenting to Infographic submission. All of the link building techniques won't gives links from one place.

For example, Blog commenting gives links from the comments ( Below posts ) and Broken link building technique gives links from the body of the article. At the same time, Links from footer of templates ( Sitewide links ) comes from the footers and sidebars.

Well, Links which are located closely to the content works better than the links far from article body. That's why, Experts never recommend sitewide links.

Very high quality backlinks:

From article body

Medium quality link locations:

From Comments

Low quality link locations

Footer
Sidebar
Below the widgets like subscription widgets.

3. Metrics





Well, We all start checking out the metrics of a blog before contributing an article ( Guest posting ) or Building alink back from that webpage.

There are many metrics like DA, PA, TF, CF etc.

A long ago, we have checked the pagerank of a blog for checking " How effective a backlink is ". But, Pagerank is officially dead and no longer gets updated. So, we can't judge backlink quality by checking pagrank.

Instead, start checking DA ( Domain Authority ) and PA ( Page authority ) of a website. DA and PA are metrics developed by SeoMoz.

4. Is that editorially placed ?



Many of the websites gives out dofollow links from Profiles. Those are called profile links which makes no sense at all. 

Because, they were placed by the user, not by the editor or the webmaster. 

But, How Google knows about, Who placed the link ?

Well, My answer would be don't know. Google never released any information regarding the backlink quality or the backlink crawler. So we can't explain you now.


5. Are you getting any traffic from the link ?



Natural links always drives traffic to the linked blogs. According to me, natural links refers to those links placed by the webmaster in his article as a reference.

I have already told you that links placed in the article body works better than other places. But this isn't about location of link.

You can judge your backlink quality by checking whether it drives you traffic or not.

But this is not only the factor, you will have to consider all the factors listed in this article. 

We all know, Google loves natural links and Natural links always drives traffic.


6. Does the link giving site sandboxed or penalized by Google ?



Sandboxing refers to a temporary ban from Google, which removes websites from index for sometime, If the webmaster is using black hat techniques.

If you get a backlink from a penalized or sandboxed site, you should start asking the webmaster to remove your link or disavow it. Otherwise, your website will also gets penalized.

A quality link will never comes from a sandboxed or penalized site. 

Wrapping Up



There are many other factors which needs to be get listed here. I am still researching about ' Quality backlinks '. When I find another factor, I will update this blog post, So Be sure to Bookmark this page or share it in social media.

10 Best CPM ad Networks for Low Traffic blogs

Posted by Samba Siva
Do you need a list of Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs ?

Tired of getting scammed by new ad networks which offer fake promises on higher CPM rates ?

Well, If your answer is yes, You are the most luckiest person in the world. Because, I am going to give you a list of best ad networks for small publushers


Well, When it comes to monetizing, We all prefer Adsense over any other ad networks. But there are some situations which makes us to try some other ad networks. Some of the problems would be:

1. Your Adsense account is banned. We all know, How strict was Google Adsense. Many big publishers have sad stories when it comes to Adsense. I have seen many bloggers including Ammar Ali from AllBloggingTips was banned from Adsense. So he started using Infolinks for monetization.


2. Don't like, putting all eggs in one basket. Sometimes, we get a thought that " What would happen If my Adsense account banned when I reach 99$ ? ". Yes, that is correct. As a Blogger, you should think like that. We must never depend on one revenue source. That's why, we need to try another ad networks.

Well, there are thousands of reasons to choose other ad networks leaving Adsense. But it isn't about that. This is about some of the Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs. If you wanna try some other ad networks, This list is a best suit for you.


Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs


Adsense

Best CPM ad networks for Low traffic blogs

We haven't give it a position number as every publisher gives Adsense the first priority when it comes to monetization.

Adsense is the undefeated streak when it comes to CPC, CPM networks in the industry.

Adsense doesn't have any traffic requirements. All you need is high quality content and some domain age for getting started with Adsense.

The minimum payout of Adsesne is $100 and they pay via direct bank transfer.

1. Revenue Hits

revenue hits

Revenue Hits is one of the Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs and most popular network which works on CPM, CPC and CPA formats.

Revenue Hits is really a fantastic network for tech bloggers who are blogging about Android, Downloads and tech news as all their ads are based on technology.

Revenue Hits offers instant approval which means your blog can get approved within a minute of submission.

Revenue Hits offers many ad formats like Banners, Pop-up's, Lightbox, Interstitials, Floating banners. You can choose any format you like. According to me z Banners works best as they won't affect user experience.

Revenue Hits is a CPA based network which means you will get paid once if any one makes an action on the advertisers website. Actions includes Subscribing, Downloading and some more.

The minimum payout of Revenue Hits is $50 and they pay via PayPal and Cheque for their publishers.


2. Tribal Fusion ( Not really good for small publishers )


No doubt, Tribal Fusion ( now Expontial ) is one of the best Adsense alternatives ever.

But sorry for including this network in this post as this network is not suitable for small publishers or low traffic blogs, But they provide highest CPM's in the industry.


The minimum requirements of Tribal Fusion are very large and almost looks like impossible for small bloggers. Your blog needs at least 5,00,000 pageviews a month, which can only be achieved by high authority blogs.

Minimum payout of Tribal Fusion is $100 and they pay via PayPal, Check and wire transfer.


3. Infolinks

Infolinks best ad network for small websites


Infolinks is the king of Intext ad networks with higher CPM rates in the industry.

At first, I have thought that, Infolinks is only good for big and medium publishers. But, I came to know that Infolinks approves small blogs, as I have got an approval for my blogspot blog which doesn't have huge number of visits or posts. So this network can be considered as one of the Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs.


I have seen publishers who told that Infolinks pays as more as $7 for 1000 views. But I won't support it fully as I have only got $5 CPM for one of my tech blog.


Here is a detailed Infolinks review for publishers which helps you in deciding whether to go with them or not.


4. Popads

Popads


When I have started this blog, I have no idea on " How to monetize my blog ".

I have applied for Adsense and got rejected due to content issues. So I started monetizing my blog with Popads.

I have got awesome rates with this network. They pays a minimum of $1 CPM for their publishers. At the save time, you have the capability to ask $2 guaranteed CPM by changing minimal bid in as code settings.

Popads approves almost all type of blogs including adult blogs, as long as they have no connection with illegal activities/drugs etc.

There are no minimum traffic requirements to get started with this network. The minimum payout of Popads is $5 and they pay daily via PayPal for their publishers. That's why, Popads is one of the high paying CPM ad networks for small publishers

5. Propeller ads

Propeller ads

Here comes a serious ad network which offers competitive rates in the industry.

I have used this network and got good rates for my blog. Propeller ads won't approve some blogs. But they approve most of the blog's instantly.

My blog got an approval in 2 minutes from Propeller ads. So you should understand it's capability of taking care of their publishers.

Unfortunately, Propeller ads stopped providing banner ads for their publishers, as advertisers aren't willing to spend on Banners.

But they have popunders ( upto $7 CPM ), Direct native ads to make some more money with it.


The minimum payout of Propeller ads is $100 via cheque.



6. UberCPM

uberCPm


Well I haven't used this network for more than 2 days because of some issues with ads.

That doesn't mean, their ads contain viruses or malware. They only display an ad about a mobile application, till the publishers keep their ads for 3 days in their websites.

That means, All publishers should place their ad codes for at least 3 days for full optimization.

UberCPM has an easy approval system and they approves blogs with lesser traffic too.


Many Bloggers said that UberCPM offers attractive rates of $7-$10 per 1000 views, But I won't support this statement a paying $10 CPM is hard for new companies.


Anyway, UberCPM is also a good Adsense alternative and one of the Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs.

7. Chitika

Chitika

Chitika is the first network which strikes our mind, when we got rejected or banned by Google Adsense.

The only thing I won't like in chitika was " They only show one ad displaying Teaching related content ". If you are a tech blogger, no one is going to click on that advertisement. So you can't make money with Chitika easily.

At the same time, Chitika offers low CPC rates when compared to other networks like Infolinks and Revenue Hits.

But, Chitika is a best suited network for small publishers as they don't have any minimum traffic requirements and the minimum payout is only $10 via PayPal.

8. Ad-maven

Ad-maven

Ad-maven is the largest popunder network which have 15 hears of experience in the industry and delivers over 5 Billion impressions a month.

I like the support team of Ad-Maven as they offer E-mail support which gives you replies in minutes. But sometimes hours depending on the availability of the staff.

To get started with Ad-Maven, you should submit your blog and they will approve your blog automatically. But keep in mind, After you place the ad codes in your blog, they will review your blog and may stop displaying ads, If your blog doesn't meet their requirements.

The minimum payout of Ad-Maven is $50 via PayPal. Ad-Maven is really one of the Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs and small publishers.


9. Bidvertiser

Bidvertiser

Bidvertiser is one of the oldest ad network founded in 2002 and one of the best CPC ad networks for small publishers.

Bidvertiser pays via CPC, CPM methods and there have many formats like Banners, Pop-ups and Popunders for monetizing our blogs.

They pay lower rates, But they never scammed anyone. The minimum payout of Bidvertiser is $10 via PayPal.

10. Ayboll


Here is the first native ad network in the list and the last ad network in the list.

Ayboll is one of the best alternatives to Taboola and Outbrain which are the largest native ad networks in the industry.

Getting started with Ayboll is really easy, All you need to do is signing up and creating widgets for your blog. Adding those widgets to our blog is really easy.

The minimum payout of Ayboll is $100 via Paypal. I don't know anything about rates, as I haven't tried it personally for monetization.

Ayboll is one of the best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs and a good native ad network.


Why we haven't included many other networks


Many Bloggers write blog posts like this one.

They give a title like " Best CPM networks for small bloggers ". You should observe that the title contain a word " for small publishers ".

But they include ad networks which won't give easy approval.

For example, they include ad network like Media.net

Media.net offers really competitive rates for their publishers. But getting an approval is hard sometimes. Your blog needs so much traffic from US, UK and Canada and some high quality articles to get an approval from Media.net


That's why, we haven't included many other ad networks in this list.

Some other networks include:

1. Rythmone

2. Conversant media

3. Poptm

Wrapping Up


This is the list of Best CPM ad networks for low traffic blogs. This list is not in an order. So give all the networks a try and choose one of the best networks which suits your blog.

Clickbank has a very good UI which can be easily understood by even beginners or dumbs. That's why, I really love Clickbank


Clickbank offers good support which is really helpful for newbies who have some doubts regarding their network.

The minimum payout of Clickbank is $100 and they pay via PayPal, Check or bank transfer.

CJ Affiliate by conversant



CJ dashboard

With many complaints and negative reviews, This is the best Affiliate network of 2017 and for forever.

But why this network got first position even having complaints ?

Because, CJ affiliate was founded on 1988, being one of the oldest affiliate networks ever. There are many professional bloggers who are using this network for making money from their blog's.

We have also written a definitive guide to make money with CJ affiliate. The guide was really helpful for beginners, as we covered each and every thing in that post.

Getting started with CJ is very easy, all you need to do is straightaway going to their signup page and input all details and wait for getting an approval.

As CJ is one of the oldest network, it has huge marketplace of Affiliate programs. You can find affiliate programs of various categories. You can use the search bar for finding affiliate programs related to your blog.

Some of the best programs of CJ are:

Godaddy

Bluehost

1&1


All the above ones are related to Domains and Hosting. It is related to my niche, So I have only listed them.

Advantages:


Huge partner network: CJ has huge number of partners ( Affiliate programs ) which can be good for any niche. Even though your blog's niche is Food, you can find food related affiliate programs to make money from your blog.

Good stats reporting system: CJ affiliate provides real time stats updates which can be good for tracking your affiliate sales each and every day or hour. They don't have any bugs in stats reporting system. So no loss of earnings or sudden vanishing of sales.

Good payment terms: CJ affiliate uses Net-20 payment terms which means you will get paid for every 20 days

Disadvantages:

Manual approval for some programs:

Some programs gives automated approvals which makes you start promoting and earning right away.

But some programs won't give you automated approvals, which sometimes takes sometime to get approved.


Old and outdated layout:

Using CJ for the first time is really annoying, If you don't have any experience in using Affiliate networks, it might takes sometime to understand their features.


Name: CJ affiliate by Conversant

Rakuten LinkShare





Rakuten is one of the oldest affiliate network. When compared to big players like CJ, Clickbank, they have smaller payouts.

Rakuten has an approximate of 1500 merchants across the world.

The main disadvantage of Linkshare is they only pay to affiliates after the merchant pays them. But don't worry, Rakuten never allows spam or scam campaigns in their marketplace. So you can get paid.

Rakuten's huge advantage is Ad rotation. Instead of selecting attractive banner and placing it in your blog, Rakuten makes it easier for us to show various banners without much space.


We can easily tell that Rakuten is one of the high paying Affiliate networks in the industry with awesome support.


What to look in an affiliate network ?



Partners: If you are joining an affiliate network, it is a must to know " How many advertisers they have in their marketplace ". Of you haven't got any information, try contacting their support.



Support: Affiliate networks sometimes might give us some confusion regarding getting the code of banners or something. That's why, it is important to check out the support of an affiliate network before joining.

Payment terms and methods: All affiliate networks never use the same payment terms and methods. Some uses Net-20 and some use Net-30 payment terms. Some networks use PayPal as payment method and some use Cheque as their payment method. That's why, it is really a must checking out payment methods and terms is a must.




Conclusion



This is the list of high paying Affiliate networks of 2017. I know, I have missed many other networks in this list, they might be added later, after we review each and every thing about those networks.

An example of Long tail keywords would be:

Build High quality backlinks quickly

As a visitor, Do you search for that keyword ?

The chances might be 50-50. If you only need to know about high quality links, you would search for that. That's why, the volume of long tail keywords would always be low. But that doesn't mean, they have very low volume. Here is an article to prove it. Read How ' Neil Patel generated 20,000 visits using a long tail keyword ?

Even you are a beginner or very new to blogging ( Dumb ), you can target long tail keywords. But, that doesn't mean, you will reach first page surely. Long tail keywords have some competition, as many newbie bloggers target them. But, If you follow, some good on page seo optimization techniques and use this guide on Writing Seo optimized content, your chances of getting on the first page of Google may increase.

Disadvantages:

1. Low volume ( means you will get less number of visits )

2. Low CPC ( Not always )

Use Quora or Yahoo answers



You can use popular communities or Q&A sites like Quora or Yahoo answers to find long trail keywords easily. Can't get me ?

There are many people who asks thousands of questions daily on Q&A sites like Quora. Some of the questions might include a thread with your keyword.

For example, If your focus keyword is On-page Seo you can search for that.

Quora will show you questions, containing your keyword. As they are in question format, you can find many long tail keywords in them.



We will take above example, If you search for on-page Seo, Quora gave you results like:

Any On-Page Seo optimization techniques ?

More questions......

In the second question, you can see, there is a long tail keyword. That is " On Page Seo optimization techniques ". Hurrah, you have found a long tail keyword.

Start spying on your competitors



For example, you are in a need of long tail keyword related to link building. And you are frustrated with all the methods listed above. I have already told you that Sometimes they might won't work.

So you can find long tail keywords related to link building or any other niche by spying on your competitors.

To spy on your competitors:

1. Make a list of top websites and blogs related to your focus keyword.

2. Then go to Google and search for your keyword Blog Name .

For example, Mine was link building and I have selected Neil Patel as my competitor.

So,, I search for Link Building Neilpatel.com and Google gives me results of neilpatel.com related to link building.

So I will start reading his articles related to link building and make a note of all the long tail keywords in the article.

What, All long tail keywords in an article, How they target more than 3 keywords ?

Can't get me ?

Actually experts never stuff keywords or stress a specific keyword. If they target a keyword " Link Building tips ", they wouldn't repeat it too many times. Instead they will take the help of LSI keywords.

LSI keywors are nothing other than synonyms or related keywords in Seo.

For example, If you written about " How to add Adsense ads in Blogger ", You need to repeat it for maintaing good keyword density. But visitors may feel bad, If they notice that you are stuffing keywords. That's why, it is better to use LSI keywords in the place of Focused keywords ( only sometimes, Never try ranking for multiple keywords )

So an example of LSI keyword for the above would be " How to Insert Adsense ads in Blogger.

You can observe that I have used a synonym " Insert " in the place of " add ". So we got an LSI keyword. But keep in mind that your keyword density shouldn't be increased than 1-2% including LSI Keywords.


But Why I am taking about this ?

I told you that reading articles of competitors and making a list of long tail keywords in the above step.

While reading the competitor's article, Make sure you make a note of his focus keyword and LSI keywords.

Then you can find long tail keywords easily.
