Backlinks
« on: June 08, 2018, 01:17:19 AM »
I have purchased a domain name with 7 backlinks. I put it into KeywordTitan and it shows the backlinks linking to the site. The links show the url of the page they linked to, eg, www.mynewdomain.com/encycl/cats/page123.html and the text that forms the anchor, eg funny cats. Is it important for me to recreate those pages? Will the backlinks disappear otherwise?

Also, the link page urls all end in .html. I have created the site on wordpress. I am able to create .html pages but is it possible to get those on a WP site?

You can add instructions to the htaccess file to 301 redirect all nonexistent pages to the home page. That will redirect the link juice to the homepage.
