What is an inbound link?
Inbound links direct traffic to your website from another website. The more links that connect to the site, the higher its domain authority will be in Google. With more high quality web sites linked to your site, you’ll gain credibility which in turn, will boost your search engine ranking.
High-quality external links appear when they come from reliable sources or well-referenced Google sites. This can be a directory, an influencer blog, a virtual diary, etc. Text anchors for incoming links should be meaningful and relevant to the topic.

5 easy ways to increase inbound links
1- Look to social networks
They’re everywhere and they’re huge… Social networks are a vast resource for quality inbound links. When you publish viral content and share on social networks, it’s a safe bet that it’ll be widely used, shared and distributed.
2- Write quality articles
When you create quality content, it’s more likely to be shared as a source or as a reference. For instance, expert opinions from a nutritionist about one of your products can help get you identified as an information source in an article.
3- Guest bloggers
This method has been used for so long and even though it is no longer directly useful for SEO, it works very well for branding / social-proofing! It’s all very simple: start by creating a high-quality article with a common link to your standard web content. Next, offer the article to different contributors in the same field. You can suggest that they contribute an article to be published on your blog.
4- Writing news articles
An article that’s the source for a news story will attain wider recognition (the novelty principle) and can be shared on other news sites. When we see news media as a source of quality inbound links, it’s a win-win situation!
UA directory has more to offer than phone numbers and addresses. In fact, numerous directories exist that allow Internet users to easily find and identify sites and businesses in the marketplace.
