Link building comes in many shapes and forms and as you probably know by now, less is more.
Google killed off the whole notion of building links on a large scale years ago, meaning the idea of thousands of bookmarks or hundreds of article directory links is dead in the water. Even guest posting en-mass isn’t really an option unless you have a chunk of very good quality blogs.
However, as we said less is more.
Link building from authority blogs is the way forward and though on paper may often seem somewhat costly in terms of time and effort, pays back dividends in terms of results in the short and also in the long term.
Benefits of Authority Links
Google wants to trust your site in a very similar way to the way people do. Before the web even existed, publicity and trust was created in offline advertising i.e newspapers, magazines, brochures etc. If you were mentioned in the paper, you could say it built trust among an audience. Additionally, if you were mentioned in a trade publication, the same is true.
Buy Authority Links
In essence, the likes of the Huff Post and Buzzfeed are just the modern day equivalent of these the newspapers and magazines of old. Getting a mention in one of these – whether it’s an authority news site or the online equivalent of a trade publication, is worth its weight in gold and will carry a lot of power in the immediate and also going into the future. It’s the sort of online real estate that can really help website or a blog push its way to the top of the search engine results and in turn help dominate rankings.
Getting These Links
Needless to say getting these sort of links on authority sites is the hardest part. The likes of Forbes, or Entrepreneur.com don’t give out links on a willy nilly basis to any old business. It’s all down to the journalism of old really and you need to manage to pique the interest of a journalist to get them to take notice of your site.
This means either doing something interesting or having some form of contact with the journalist. Our link building services provide the latter and we have contact with writers on a number of these authority sites and are able to pitch your site to them and in turn gain their interest, a contextual mention and a link that will drive traffic to your site and help you make those sales. These services can work very well for local SEO link building or national and international campaigns.
