Backlinks are links on other websites that link to your website. The quality and quantity of your backlinks plays a major role in improving your website in Google Search. 

Beware, don’t buy backlinks. Buying backlinks can put your website at risk of Google removing it from Google Search. Typically these backlinks are on spam websites of very low quality. Black hat SEOs (unethical SEOs) try to trick Google into increasing the rank of your website by buying backlinks.

Hello there! My name is Connor. I found myself co-founding Tall Town Design in March 2015. Never really thought I'd be a business owner, but here I am. Not long after building a few websites I found myself obsessed with Search Engine Optimization, which is what I specialize in. I'm pretty much split between doing on-page and technical SEO for our clients.
