TrustRank:How Quality Backlinks with High TrustRank Can Raise Your Site's Rankings?

Quality backlink is one of the most important ranking signal for Google. The post Penguin backlink strategy involves relying solely on quality backlinks. A single quality backlink can outweigh several hundreds low quality backlinks. Hence, a proper link building strategy should be focussed on obtaining quality backlinks to your website by spending a lot of time on research. A good backlink must have a high domain authority, loyal followers, low alexa rank, high traffic, quality content, awesome social shares among the important signals. Sites that are already ranking on top 100 for your targeted keywords are the best sites to approach for getting a backlink. These sites already have a lot of trust with Google (as they are already ranking high) and they could help your site get a pie of the trust share they enjoy to raise your organic ranking. This TrustRank factor works as a strong signal for Google for the ranking of web pages.
