Maybe this is a question which stems admittedly out of lack of proper knowledge regarding backlinks despite being involved in the industry for a relatively long time.
I have launched a new blog, I continue working on it tirelessly 12+ hours a day 7 days a week, much to the dismay of my fiance, who threatened, "its the blog or me..."Well the blog is still going! Which brings me to my question.
Despite the young age of my blog (3-months) I am receiving exceptional traffic numbers via socialmedia, mostly thanks to a number of viral posts all with 6k-12k+ shares (humblebrag)
I was pleased, even shocked to discover that I have recently acquired a very good mention and backlink from a very high and authoritative website (MOZ-RANK 77) which is sort of on par with the dailytelegraph.co.uk (although that is not the site)
I have received a couple of links, although not nearly as good as the above and I am sure many will agree that links such as the above are a rare find...my question...can I expect to see any short to medium gains from the above link in terms of a serp perspective?, or am I getting just a little to excited here...?
The niche is sport and the competition is rather stiff, not impossible to break, but definitely hard.
