SEO and backlinks.

I've been working on my website, CustomDesign by Vickie. It's only about 7 months old, so I'm still working on content most of the time or at least trying to come up with new ideas that will draw interest.

The "Designers Gallery" is intended for all designers who wish to promote their product designs and stores.
I've asked that each who submit their store, to give me a backlink. Actually it's a must, now.
In the beginning, I didn't require it. But, I did ask, without much success. I'm not sure what the problem is, but backlinks are very important for SEO (search engine optimization) This benefits all concerned. If you have your store listed on my website, you will have a better chance at being found, if all stores have a backlink to CustomDesignn by Vickie. You might say, one hand feeds the other. It works!
If you're unfamiliar with how SEO and backlinks work, Google it.
I've also asked for contributors with ideas, again no success.
A mixture of thoughts and ideas can benefit us all. The bottom line is, we want our products and designs to sell.


  1. Backlinks are very important. There are two big things to consider when getting backlinks. One is you want a your link on a site or page with similar content. It must be relevant to your site. The other thing is the rank of the page your link is place on. A low rank page will not give much if any benefit. It can actually do more harm than good to have your links on low ranking pages.

  2. Oops I forgot another important thing for backlinks. You want your link on a site that does not add nofollow to them. If they do then the link isn't indexed by search engines.

    You may still get traffic from a nofollowed link. It just won't count as a backlink.

  3. I will have to try out this black list seo, or i might get a toronto seo service to come help me.
