Today’s question was originally asked in Clarity. I answered it there but am reposting it here with additional feedback. It’s a longer question than normal, so bear with me…
Is it possible to increase my site’s SEO by getting blogs/other websites to provide backlinks to my site? I have a strategy in mind to increase my site’s SEO. Basically I want to position my site on the top few Google results for a particular keyword. Eg: Toys.
If I provide bloggers with unique articles, all related to Toys, and ask them to set the same keywords in addition to providing a backlink to my site, will it be possible for me to increase my site’s authority for the word Toys?
In other words, If I can get 5,000 blog articles to point to my site with the same keywords, can I make it to the top of Google’s search results if a user searches for Toys?
