For many bloggers and website owners, finding a method to monetize their sites in the beginning can be a challenge.

For a blog or website, this is like the external links to your homepage. They are the doors to your business, the more you have, the more potential exposure you can generate. Therefore ultimately leading to more traffic.

One word is used to describe these links, Backlinks, a pretty self explanatory term.

But how do you generate these backlinks? [Read more]
