We’re all on the lookout for authority when it comes to backlinks. Common terms like high pr backlinks, high pr domains, high quality pr backlinks, alexa backlinks and authority backlinks are just a sample of phrases that are in the link building conversation.
If you’re a blogger, a website owner, someone who builds PBN’s, a local business trying to improve their online presence or even an SEO agency, the stark reality is that owning a website means you need links. There’s no getting around this reality for anyone.
While there are all kinds of backlinks available online to connect you and your site to, there are good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods if we look at the two most straight forward spectrums in link building.
If you build links in good neighborhoods, with time you will move up in the serps (search engine results pages) for your keyword terms and phrases. Alternatively, when you build links in bad neighborhoods, all sorts of bad things can happen to your rankings. You may even get deindexed from Google’s search results.
Ouch.. and once that’s happened, you’re going to spend 2 to 3 times more energy and effort trying to fix what went wrong.
For those that are not aware, let’s define good neighborhoods as places that are in the same niche that you’re in and the bad neighborhoods are places that have no relevance to your niche or in the most laymens terms it could be said this way.. they are places that are not in your niche at all.
With that said, high pr pertains to page rank which is a metric that is really not openly utilized by Google anymore, but it still gives some indication of the more modern metric which is commonly referred to as DA (domain authority) or PA (page authority). This corresponds to a websites ranking power.
Typically coming across high PR websites usually corresponds with high domain authority as well. Furthermore that corresponds with overall website authority. The more authority your backlinks have the easier it is for your page that you’re trying to rank to climb the serps to ultimately increase the traffic flowing to your site for your keyword phrase that you’re targeting.
As I’ve mentioned before in another post, beyond the sources for high pr backlinks that I’ll list below, you can make it even easier on yourself to target more high pr backlinks by using a tool called SEMrush. I use this tool daily not only for my competitive research but to identify where my competitors are getting their backlinks from too. SEMrush makes finding niche related authority sources a fairly simple and fast process.
With that said, here’s nearly 100 sources for high pr backlinks.
Now while I’ve listed these site resources to indicate where high pr backlinks can be acquired, I also want you to be knowledgeable and fully aware of the full scope of the conversation on link building. Beyond just trying to manipulate your SEO portfolio with the intention to increase power to rank but the other aspects of the conversation that you may not be aware of too.
Assuming that you don’t know much about backlinks, there are free and paid backlinks. As you can imagine, paying for links probably isn’t a good thing in the eyes of Google.
With that said, here’s what Google says on the topic of link schemes: Google Policies on Link Manipulation. However, the reality is that this is highly practiced online and there are many outlets where you can find paid backlink services. Ultimately, it may meet your backlinking needs in the short term but it’s a long term strategy that will do more harm than good.
Here’s even more information by way of video that gives you a more in-depth explanation beyond what I’ve mentioned in my statement on this as well. With that said, here’s a video that further explains link manipulation.
Another reason why I mention this is because on the topic of high pr backlinks or authoritative backlinks, in full and complete transparency, the truth of the matter is that you can find services for them on many forums and even on service marketplaces such as Fiverr and their alternatives as well just as I mentioned before prior to listing the video above.
So yes, there are risks associated with targeting high pr backlinks and that is something that you must weigh into your overall strategy as you develop and implement your particular linking plan as to whether it’s worth it or not.
Beyond that, please understand that what I have said in the past is something that I really want you to hear. Link with a purpose to help and not just to be self-serving. Granted as you build links and acquire backlinks, some will be good, some will fall into that just okay category and some are going to be golden.
Always, always, always, link to places that are in your niche. Always link to places that are relevant. If you use free or paid high authority backlinks, my advice is to use them to help you rank for low hanging fruit or on easy keywords to help you rank faster, but understand the risks associated with that strategy too.
On another note of pertinent linking advice, if you have a food blog, don’t link to a car blog. It’s that kind of linking, regardless of what kind of authority the target site may have that will do harm to your own website.
With that said, there’s so much more that can be discussed on the topic of linking, but for now I’ll conclude this in saying that you should stay as whitehat as possible in your linking strategy and consider the risks of link manipulation too as you go about your own link building campaigns for your respective websites.
