I strongly recommend that you do not use external links that point to another website. When we include outbound links to our contents, it leads to bad SEO technique. Use only when necessary and always use the nofollow tag for outbound links. You can also specify the external URLs with plain HTML text.

Important: Never use nofollow tag for the authoritative website like Google and Wikipedia. If you have created your blog on Blogger or Wordpress, then never use nofollow for these sites as it will have negative impacts on your blog SEO.

3. Techniques For Getting Backlinks

Find articles on other blogs related to your niche and leave smart and relevant comments by using the links from articles that you want to get ranked. For this, you can search for high-quality blogs that occupy higher domain authority score. But keep in mind, not all blogs allow other links except the homepage links in the comments.

Well, how simple is it? We can create an internal link in any amount in every article you write, as long as the article is related to the article being discussed. Give a clear explanation, such as read,  please read, refer to this article, or another word. Do not write same anchor text for your internal links.

4. Strategy Behind Long Tail Keywords

Long tail marketing strategies for SEO & SEM often return higher conversion rates by up to 200% as compared to short tail generic keywords. These keyword terms can be extremely profitable for SEO. With SEO, it is easier to rank well on Google for these keywords due to the low amounts of competition. The strategy behind long tail keywords is finding key terms that visitors search in every day and weeding out or combining the most competitive keywords.

Longtail keywords are less competitive and thus easier to rank higher with other words and easier to be shown under the "People also ask" page. These days, short tail keywords are almost impossible to rank well and typically a site would almost need a miracle to happen in order to unseat or replace top ranked site for the given keyword. The long tail keywords should be placed in the page header, article title, and of course multiple times throughout the article. But keep in mind, without original content these longtail keywords simply will not work for SEO.
