Getting to the top of a search page on Google or any other directory requires a lot of time and effort, but your Northbrook Chamber membership can help.One factor that has a big impact on the algorithms to get you ranked higher on a search page is the use of backlinks. Backlinks are simply links from one website to another site. Since your Chamber membership includes a link to your business, you are already linked to an “authoritative” website in the eyes of Google. To maximize this relationship, it is impactful on your rankings to create a “backlink” to the Northbrook Chamber on your website. The easiest way to create this backlink is to follow these four simple steps:
- Login to your Chamber account and go to your Company Information page.
- Tap on the Membership Badge option at the bottom of the page
- Generate the HTML code by tapping the Generate link button
- Paste that code to the bottom portion of your website home page.
If you do not know how to paste HTML code to your website, ask your website provider for help.
Backlinks are not the only factor that can get you to the top of a search page, but it is always a good idea to use all the free resources available to help get you there.
