Why Backlinks Shouldn’t Be the Main Focus of Your Outreach Strategy

Outreach Strategy

Backlinks are awesome!

But forget them. Banish them from your mind because an insatiable desire for backlinks corrupts, turning you into a monster who forgets all about value, relationships, and treating people well. Your family doesn’t even recognize you anymore!

Dramatic much? Maybe.

Look, everyone tells us how important backlinks are. Backlinks boost our SEO efforts, making us more visible on Google. We all know this, and it’s no wonder so many of us are chasing them via outreach marketing, which is a great way of getting our content and brand in front of more eyes. It boosts our prestige, increases people’s trust in us, and ultimately it increases our conversions and sales.

8 Deadly Sins of Link Building

The ultimate aim of any website owner is to drive more and more traffic to his website and bring it to the top of search engines. There are many methods available by which one can achieve this but one of the most famous methods is link building.

Link Building

In fact, a study shows that 72% of CEOs believe link building is a key ranking factor. It is the process of linking your web page with third party web pages that have relevant content. This is an effective way in which a user can surf the internet. These links are used by the search engines to access one website to another.

Thus, link building will not only increase your website traffic but also enhance your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts and domain authority.

However, link building is probably one of the hardest parts of an SEO specialist’s job.

Link building can be metaphorically related to walking through a balancing rope. A perfect balance will take you to the other side. An inch here or there, you are bound to fall. If done in the right way, link building can tremendously boost your website traffic and improve search rankings.

However, there are certain NO’s of link building that if not adhered to, can ruin your entire SEO efforts and even negatively affect your page rankings. Below are the 8 deadly sins of link building.

The 12 Best WordPress Plugins You Need Right Now

Plugins are there to make our lives easier, and I, for one, make the most of them. There are thousands available to add extra functionality to your WordPress site, covering everything from extra security measures and site backups to image galleries and social media. The best thing about these app-style add-ons is how easy they are to install and you don’t need much experience to use them.

With all this in mind, it’s easy to get carried away browsing the plugin libraries. Instead of creating a bloated user experience on a slow-moving site, consider a “less is more” approach. I tend to keep a tight ship on how many plugins I use. My WordPress-based site isn’t jam-packed with them; if they don’t serve a real purpose or aren’t necessary as a stand-alone download, they’re out.

Chances are, many of your site features and elements are or will be powered by plugins. They are an asset to any successful WordPress website. Keep in mind that adding plugins isn’t like collecting Pokemon. Just because there is a plugin for pretty much every function or feature you can think of doesn’t mean you should indulge in adding them all. Using too many can eat up disk space on your site’s server, make plugin management cumbersome or slow down the performance of your site. Worst case scenario – they can open your site up to being hacked.

Limiting the type and number of plugins you use is a great first step to improving your website. In this article, I’m going to give you a list of only mandatory WordPress plugins you need to use on your WordPress site. This includes plugins that improve security, SEO, user experience and backing up your content, as well as saving time and improving conversions.

If you don’t have these 12 WordPress plugins already, you should install them now to keep your site ticking along nicely.
