A healthy backlink profile contains a mix of do and don't follow links, with and without anchor text going to the root page and sub pages.

What Corinne Guest, Managing Broker - we actually discussed this yesterday. I believe some are to be no-follow links as well ... I'm working with an SEO person on this.

You should have a mix, but it also depends where the link comes from.

For example, if a newspaper website mentions you, you want it linking to the home page.

Like other people have mentioned, if the link references a specific geographical area, link to that page on your website.

Use your common sense and you will be okay.

If you have someone building links for you, make sure they know what they are doing and they explain their strategy thoroughly.

I second Corinne Guest, Managing Broker's response. Nothing annoys me personally than to click on a link that takes me to something other than what I was expecting to see.

As AI gets better, I strive for relevance -- I try to direct links to what I think is the best landing place for them (ie where people are going to best find what they're looking for)

We should take care of our own website and update pages regularly.  This helps with search engines realizing the site is active.

Combo for sure.  Having deep links (i.e. relevant and to interior articles) can really help with placement for those articles.

The backlinks to your website are part of it. To tractor beam the consumer that is surfing into your individual pages and not just the main domain front landing page. But the site itself... once you razzle dazzle to pull them in, you want them to hang around and graze and to return for more. The navigation better be smooth and easy and no one has to hit reverse. Confusion, complication and not predictable causes flit. There has to be content, imagery, helpful information way way beyond just real estate listings. The consumer does not have time to hit several sites and should not have to.

Do NOT have these people develop backlinks for you: ineedhits.com

I was flagged by Google for several years for this and am just getting back on my feet!!

Backlinks need to be from places that have some relevance to what you do.
