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.

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.

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.

7 False Expectations that Clients Have When They Hire an SEO Agency

Most often digital business owners don’t really know how SEO works, and so they underestimate its importance. While at the same time, SEO experts don’t take the time to explain all the details related to optimization, and thus don’t show its power and what it can do for a business.

How to Scale Link Building Activities for Long Term Success?

Within the broad arsenal of digital marketing tactics, link building still retains its place as a very useful weapon. Not only does it yield SEO benefits, high-quality backlinks can also positively impact digital PR endeavours and referral traffic results.

 Scale Link Building

It’s therefore hardly surprising that link building has become popular with businesses of all shapes and sizes. And when many take their first, tentative steps towards building links, their strategies tend to be quite bespoke, narrow in scope, and short-sighted. However, there comes a point when marketers need to think big and scale-up their link building activities if they’re serious about taking on the competition dominating the search engine results pages (SERPs).

Not so long ago, the idea of scaling link building activities conjured images of spambots, forum links, and mass-automated outreach emails. Due to smarter algorithms, tighter regulations, and a more acute public awareness about what automated outreach looks like, these tactics just aren’t viable anymore. It has become harder to pull the wool over the eyes of switched-on webmasters, and this has resulted in a greater demand for unique and well-constructed content.

So, against this backdrop, how can marketers scale their link building activities for long-term success?

Well, here are three tips to set you on the right track:

Just discovered how my top competitor is getting links via “Author Spying”!

I just stumbled upon a link building tactic that I think might be worth a goldmine (at least to me)! First, some background information to give you some context. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been actively scouring the internet for opportunities to build links for a site in the real estate niche – I’ve been browsing through forums and their marketplaces, reading articles on various link building strategies and even experimented with a few link purchases for some of my lesser known sites.

Giving you this background information because it’s necessary to realize the state of awareness I’ve been in while browsing through content online. During the day, I’d typically consume at least 7-10 articles in that niche and I’d always look at the outgoing links from within each article to figure, “why did this author choose to link to this article”. It bothered me not knowing how I could get my links featured in those articles when I had equally good and relevant content available on my site. Read More
