Hello ,

The backlink in the sense a link which one is coming from another website (website gets from another site). it makes a huge impact on your website’s ranking and searches result. we should be considered those sites very useful for our business niche and it’s really helpful to improve the website’s SEO ranking. It called as a “Valuable”

There are some reasons that you’ll look at before you decide the link is valuable or not. I would like to say simply if the site has “This content is valuable, credible and useful”. which means, these are the overall top three, officially confirmed by Google itself.

1 & 2: Links & Content
3: RankBrain

Coming to your question, comparing two sites, BBC is a trustworthy site. so you can go for it.

Hope you can understand my points. If you have any further clarifications, please read my answer properly and get back to me 🙂

Hello Nigetha,

You mean, if a site has ” This content is valuable, credible and useful,” it can be considered as a valuable content. Is this what you are trying to explain? 🙂

Hey ,

” This content is valuable, credible and useful,From Gowthamy

Before I suggest you the valuable site which you asked earlier, I just tell you what is the meaning of “Value” if you have the valuable content which is recommended by Search engine and it’s really useful for the target audience with credibility, you can use the word like “valuable”. otherwise, you can’t even define that is the valuable site. still, you have any doubts?

The 1st point is valuable for the website because of the BBC has
1.Page Authority – 78
2.Domain Authority- 95
3. BBC gives the outbound links are do-follow
4.BBC has all category. If we get the link from the right category, It’s fine
5. Brand Popularity is good
6. BBC’s SERP is good
7. A lot of the people engaged in there
8. If the website gets the backlinks from BBC, that’s naturally not the SEO purpose.

For these kinds of reasons, I chose 1st points. It will help the website natural & trust.

Hello, #Gowthamy, />
From my experience, I’ll suggest getting the link from BBC.com. bbc.com is the news sites so it’ll be suitable for all the niche. and also that news site is very popular and trusted site.

The reason of I’m avoiding your second option: That you mentioned that is a normal site and also that site has 4 blog posts from last year. So this site activity is very law and we can’t trust this site. That’s why I choose the first one.

I believe that you got my point. 🙂

Hey, Thusha!

Don’t you see like that product’s promotions on any news websites?

For example, Apple launch any new product, they will promote their product on news sites. Because from this method they can easily reach their audience.

Hello  

Well question, lets I’ll explain to your question, valuable link mean you need to consider the following points,

Site Relevance: If you get the link from Nich Site to your site, That really helps to the search engine Ranking. So the BBC.com is a news site, there we can talk all category of sites.

Authority & Trustworthy: Site’s Authority & Trust It’s more important to the website, if your build any link to another site you need to check the site Authority & Trustworthy. Therefore the BBC news site has high Authority & Trust better than that normal site. (that you mentioned)

Site activity: You mentioned that the normal site doesn’t activate regulatorily.

Finally, my point is the BBC links valuable.

Thank you.

Hi, @Yes, My suggestion is BBC.com through this site you can get more value for your site.

The following things are the reason to choose the first one.

this site having high PA and DA
this site giving the Do-follow for the Outbound links.
this site is more valuable, trustworthy, traffic, because of this news site so this site always has good traffic.

A link from a normal site which has 4 blog posts from last year. It’s not trustworthy comparing with the BBC. So I suggest the first option.

Hello Susi, 

this site having high PA and DA 
this site giving the Do-follow for the Outbound links. 
this site is more valuable, trustworthy, traffic, because of this news site so this site always has good traffic.

These points were really helpful. Is it like every news site is trustworthy and can be used in business?

@Gowthamy, Yes, It’s a great question, we can’t predict all the sites are trustworthy, we want to figure it out the trusted sites. there are ways here to determine the sites are trustworthy or not. Based on that, you have to find out.

Okay @Susi how do we find out? Any steps I could use?
