Beginner Link Building Strategies Round Up by SEO Hero
SEO Hero says: the word ‘spam’ has a negative payload and in this case it is a little negative. When used in the right way, commenting on blogs or news articles is not spammy. Let me explain what you should do to avoid ending up with a penalty from Google and becoming a SEO hero yourself.
Google has very smart computers with a very smart algorithm which is easy in recognizing a certain pattern like spamming shows. Be very careful with leaving your links and follow the SEO Hero tips.
To give you a head start: .gov and .edu are the most valuable top level domains that you can get a link to your website from. Google thinks that getting mentioned on a website with this extension does mean that the educational or governmental website is speaking highly of your website or service.
But are these gov and edu links really valuable? To be honest, not always. The domain from NASA space agency has a PageRank 9 from google. But when are in selling cars or mortgages, then it just isn’t interesting at all. You have to find the best websites or blogs in your niche and then determine if you are willing to pay for a link on that website.
It is a given fact that edu and gov domains have a lot of traffic, thus a lot of potential customers to your business. Together with good page authority and domain authority it might be a good place to have a backlink at.
Speaking of SEO, finding the right keywords and key phrases (long tail keywords) is crucial in finding the best place to answer a question. What are your potential customers looking for? What type of questions would they be typing in to a search engine? U can use a tool like Google Keyword Planner or Ubersuggest to find these kind of long tail keywords.
Another method to find the questions is to start with the answer. What answers does your website give? This might sound a bit strange but image this. On your website is an article explaining a process in your company. This process is a kind of explanation of something.
One of the hardest places to get links is in your own neighborhood. The local media like television and news websites are on a tight budget and they almost always charge you for placing an article on their website. But, most companies are looking for customers in their own area, like stores and restaurants. There are a few methods you can try to get links with.
Links to your website that you can really use can be defined by three key points. First of all, the link has to bring referral traffic. Next to that, the link has to bring visibility to your target audience and the final key point is that the link has to build reputation for your brand or company.
The back links that cover these three basic ingredients are the best back links of which your site will most benefit from SEO.
Link wheels are perfect as a SEO strategy. Although they are often overlooked, they offer great value to increase the domain authority of your site.
Basically a link wheel is a pattern of links pointing from one website to another and finally linking back to your site. You can say that site A is linking to site B which is linking to site C and site C is linking to sites A and B and your website.
The best link wheels contain a mixture of links from different types of media. Possibilities are almost endless!
