The Anatomy Of A Proper Backlink

Both sites are related to automobiles and this would be considered a relevant backlink. However, you
could get even more relevant. Let's take the same auto repair website and instead get a backlink from a

website is linking to this other auto repair website, so it must be
relevant to auto repair". You see, part of the whole concept of
