When we’re talking about backlinks, it’s a simple term meaning we are using the reference of another web page to your web page.
“Outbound” links or outgoing are links from your page. Backlinks are also called inbound links (IBL), and sometimes these links are essential in determining the importance and popularity of your website for search engines.
Well, the optimized site makes your backlinks useful, so it means you don’t need so much to achieve your desired result. On the other hand that can save you time and money! You need to cover a bunch of stuff like fixing all technical issues, and User Experience issues (UX) and UX is correlated to SEO performance. Don’t try to speed thru this process, cause you will need to go back to it later like fixing the foundation of the new building. Its manageable money equals time.
Here are some UX issues that you need to look for related to SEO:
