What are .gov backlinks?

Posted 2011-04-24 in SEO FAQ

A .gov backlink is a hyperlink from a website with the .gov domain name extension.

.gov domains are government owned websites. They usually carry some authority and weight and naturally can be very strong backlinks to have.

Beware paying for .gov backlinks

There may be perfectly legitimate offers for .gov links, but in many cases an SEO firm or consultant is forced to obtain .gov links using grey hat methods, or in the worse case black hat and downright spamming or theft. Go the extra mile if you're ever paying for any kind of advertising on a .gov domain name, and find out how these backlinks are obtained before you do anything.
