Link building is probably the hardest part of SEO, as, unlike other on-page SEO techniques, this is out of your control. Fortunately, there’s guest posting for building links.
You write guest posts for other high authority blogs and they benefit because they get fresh content and you benefit because you get a backlink to your website.
But the biggest issue with guest posting is the amount of time and money it takes. You need to not only do the outreach but constantly write guest posts. If you do this by yourself it can take up a lot of time and if you hire someone, it can cost a lot of money.
Fortunately, guest posting isn’t the only way to build backlinks. There are several other alternatives that work. Here are some of the best…
You will be surprised at the number of sites that will directly link to you without you writing a guest post. If you publish a high-quality blog post on your site and reach out to relevant blogs and ask them to link to you, you will be surprised at the number of people who will.
Good bloggers are constantly looking for sites to link to as linking out is good for SEO. So, if you make it easy for them by sharing links to good content like yours, they will gladly do it.
