Here we describe ten examples which are relevant to improve life science inbound marketing. First, let’s review some of the basics. A backlink is the same as an incoming link, and it is simply a web page hyperlink on text or an image to another site. For a text link, the anchor text is the string of words that are linked, and for a link on an image, alt tags in the html are used to describe the destination. For more details see this review of hyperlinks, and you can inspect the html for them on most internet browsers (for Firefox, use top menu Tools->Web Developer->Page Source).
