How many links will it take for my site to rank? What strategy do I implement to get top rankings for my keywords? If I had a grape for every time I heard this question, I’d be the happy owner of a lovely vineyard by now.
My answer to this question is unequivocally the same: It depends. It depends on the keywords you want to rank for. It depends on how many backlinks you currently have. It depends on your competitors strengths and weaknesses. It depends on your site’s user engagement stats. It depends on the amount and quality of content on your site. It depends on the quality of your current backlink profile, how many authoritative links you have, and how many are low quality links that need to be disavowed.
