Link popularity is simply a measure of the number of links and the quality of links that point to your site. The supposed impartiality of links has an effect on search engine rankings since important sites will attract many links and content-poor sites will have difficulty attracting any links.
Search engines have found that judging a site by who links to it is one of the best indications of the quality of that site. It’s a term used to indicate how many other web pages are linking to your site. It has become obvious that link popularity is very important for ranking high on today’s search engines.
Good quality links are necessary to achieve high search engine rankings, as they are an important factor that the search engines look for in reviewing the relevancy of a website. Your link popularity is one of the best ways to measure your website’s online visibility and overall web presence. Link popularity is improved by having links pointing to your website from any other relevant, high-ranking, popular pages other than your own site. This will greatly increase your site’s link popularity rating. Search engines use this data to help determine where your web page will rank in the search results (among other factors).
The philosophy of link popularity is that it assumes that not all incoming links are equal. An inbound link from a major directory will carry more weight than an inbound link from an obscure website page. In other words, the quality of incoming links counts more than the quantity of incoming links you have.
