Getting found on Google consists of 2 things: 1) content and 2) links. Since inbound links act as a voting system or currency for search engine algorithms, it’s imperative that SEOs acquire high quality inbound links on a consistent basis. One way to produce inbound links is to create an educational infographic for bloggers to use in their articles.

Aaron Wall’s PPC Blog had an awesome infographic on “How Google Works” today and I felt the need to share this as an example of how Professional SEO’s get quality inbound links. The picture above clearly describes How Google works to the average Googler who may be interested learning more about the powerful search engine.
