This means after accessing the content from the backlink they will be willing to browse through other pages on your website and revisit the next day. This is the ultimate goal of SEO. After successfully redirecting visitors to a website, the content has to be worth their time. So, you should ensure that you have created content that is valuable to your visitors.
Improving your SEO campaign with quality backlinks
