One of the challenges many website owners have is creating natural or quality back-links from sites with good reputations. One of the first things you should do is submit your site to Security Verification sites that offer security and reputation verification for your domain.
There are several high ranking Security Verification websites that you should get you sites on immediately for some valuable back-links to your site.
Adding the Sites Meta Tag Verification to Your Website
With all the sites listed below, you will have to verify your site by adding a meta tag to your pages head section.
If you have a HTML site, you will want to add these tags in the head section of your website.
If your site is made with WordPress and are unsure how to add a meta tag to your home pages head section, there is a plugin you can add that will allow you to simply add the meta tag. One of those plugins is the "Meta Tag Manager". After installing it you will see it in your 'Settings" section.
Security Verification Sites
Many people use plugins on the their search pages, like Alexa, Norton, McAfee and the like that give a "quality" or "security" rating for your site. This basically provides the searcher a site a trust score to your domain in the search results.
The other big benefit to this is when you register on these sites, in almost all cases you can create a profile, adding your domain name giving you an invaluable back-link as well as a "verified trust rating".
