What is Linkbuilding?
Linkbuilding consists of generating links to a web in order to increase the authority of it. There are several ways to get links to your website:
Create quality content
The best way to generate links to your website is by creating quality content. If you offer relevant information on your blog, it is very likely that your post will be shared on other websites of interest. In this way, you will generate links naturally.
The content must not only be well written, but must be optimized for SEO and shared on social networks. Otherwise, it will be difficult for other people to ever find your text to read it and, therefore, share it.
Posts as a guest author
Another way that really works is to write posts on other blogs as a guest author. In the article you write you can include a link to your website. It is important that the link appears naturally, without questioning its inclusion.
In addition, you must also take into account that the article provides content of interest, providing real value to the medium. Otherwise, you risk that the medium rejects your content as spam.
Creating links on quality website (artificial link)
Finally, there is also the possibility of including links on quality websites. Many websites allow the publication of an article that includes a link to your website. Most of the time, the content is written by the redaction of each medium. In this way, the media ensures that the content follows the same editorial line.
On other occasions, it must be provided by the client or linkbuilding agency. It is important that this text follow certain guidelines (original text, inclusion of determined anchor text, minimum length, etc.).
How to set up a good linkbuilding strategy?
To carry out a good linkbuilding strategy it is important that you select quality media. In addition, the content where your anchor text appears should be attractive to readers.
There are several metrics that can guide you on whether a medium is of quality or not. The most used are: Domain Authority, Trust Flow, Citation Flow and SEO Visibility, among others. It is important that this type of strategy is carried out by a linkbuilding agency or a professional in the sector. In the case of selecting poor quality media (with poor metrics), you would run the risk of being penalized by Google. In an other article of our blog you can find out a little more about the main metrics to take into account.
When doing linkbuilding, you must select the keywords with which you want to position yourself in the search engines. The anchor text is the text from which your link will appear. It is essential that you observe the behaviour of your keywords (positions in Google) while you carry out the strategy. In this way, you can decide the anchor text that most interests you to position. A linkbuilding agency usually has tools that follow the position of your keywords in the search engines.
Finally, it is important that the content in which your link is included contributes value and follows the editorial line of the medium in question. For this reason, we recommend collaborating with media that have similar themes to yours, providing interesting content that fits in with the theme of the web.
