The eDirectory system allows you to build .html code for use on external sites for a link back to your eDirectory system. Backlinks are links on other sites which point back to your site. This is important because major search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo! determine how useful or relevant your site is for search terms based mainly on how many other sites are linking to you for those terms.
The directory system allows you to create your own backlink code using .html, however, if you are not comfortable with .html you can use the Text area to have the .html code automatically created. The multi-lingual capabilities are available for the Backlinks feature, so you can have one unique backlink per language. This feature can be found in the Sitemgr -> Settings -> Backlinks.
In order to create a backlink please do the following:
Step 1. Type in the unique .html Code for the backlink and click Save, or if you are uncomfortable with HTML you can alternatively do the following:
1b. In the Text area, please type in the text that you would like to see for the Backlink. Click Generate HTML. In doing this the .html code will automatically appear in the HTML Code area. Click Save
Step 2. Copy and paste the code inside the HTML Code area onto an external site to link back to your eDirectory system.
