Links are one of the TOP 3 factors of rankings on Google.
My name is Doug Cunnington and I’m the founder of Niche Site Project where I talk about internet marketing, amazon affiliates, and project management.
If you don’t believe me – here’s an article by a google engineer all about ranking on google:
He talks about the top things you should do to rank on google – and even though he does write about how important CONTENT is – LINKS are also a key factor in the google equation.
Even though everyone may have differing opinions – here is the link to the video ‘Why Link Building Is Useless’ in case you are curious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH06B0N_Pjw
Link building, in my experience, has been a key element in making a successful niche site
Even if you want to do the bare minimum… adding links with good keyword research is always better than no links.
