Who knew spam mail could be worthwhile? Chipotle has a way to make the inbox-stuffing junk emails into support for our schools. They announced their email program “No Junk” this past Friday. All you have to do is forward your junk email to their designated address, firstname.lastname@example.org. For every 100,000 emails, the restaurant chain will donate $10,000 to nutrition non-profit The Lunch Box.

Build up your Backlinks with link juice!
The most important thing to know about link juice and authority sites is what they are:
Link Juice: The power of the page your backlink is from. The more weight, higher the quality, or higher PageRank of the page linking to you, the more ‘juice’ or power/weight is transferred to your page and site.
Authority Site: A website that is seen as trustworthy and influential by search engines, usually by the public as well.

Strong links in the backlink chain
Backlinks are references for your site. The more you have, the more users and search engines can learn about your website.
But while multiple backlinks is good, multiple backlinks from a diversity of sources is best. Four links from the same site can be read as just one reference by users and search engines alike.
Think about it; if a potential employer asked to see three references, you couldn’t list the same person three times, you’d have to find three different people to vouch for you. Backlinks work roughly the same way.
Take a look at your links; is each backlink from a different website?
If it’s not, you’re not alone. SEO experts say that multiple links from the same sources makes up hefty percentage of backlink problems.
So how do you diversify?

After reading the comments from Tuesday’s post, it’s clear that everyone is eager to learn more about how to improve their backlinks, but it’s also clear that many of you need more information about what a backlink is and how to get one in the first place.
A backlink is an inbound or an incoming link from another website to yours. Backlinks help establish the reputation of a website. They are extremely important for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) but they are also important in terms of general success of a site. They signify who is paying attention to the site and what websites or companies are associated with the site.
Linking to other sites also helps tell your users about your site. Your inbound and outbound links provide your users with a context for your site and its content.
Creating outbound links is simple; you can just cut and paste the URL onto your page. But getting a link from another site to yours often takes more effort.
