Words with links also matters in SEO. When you are creating a backlink on your website, try to use the words of the same niche of the site at which you are creating the backlink.

When your blog have more then 200 Quality articles and you blog update on the daily basis, and you get some quality backlinks, your blog’s reputation will be increase in front of the google and other search engines.
