My Top 5 Link Building Tips
Here is my top 5 linking building tips. There are of course many more link building tips out there but these are the ones that have worked best for me. If you feel all five are too much, just concentrate on one or two that you are comfortable with and go with that.
Link Building Tip 1. Make regular and compelling content
First thing first… Why would anyone want to link to lame content? You must make sure that what you have online is worth linking too. This doesn’t mean that everything you put online has to be amazing but you do have to ask yourself.. Would I link to this page? Is the content on this page worth sharing with my network? Remember, images, videos and infographics are shared the most. So make sure you put the time and effort into creating regular and compelling content.
Link Building Tip 2. Internal links
Do not underestimate the value of internal links. Make sure all your pages have a call to action sending them to a conversion page preferably. If your blogs mention anything from another blog post, makes sure you link the two together. I usually have a related articles section at the bottom of my blogs.
Link Building Tip 3. Broken Link Building
This can be time consuming but it has worked really well for me in the past. When you find a broken link on someones site, I’ve written a detailed article about the topic of the broken link and then contacting the site owner suggesting that they replace the broken link with a link to my site which is on the same topic.
Link Building Tip 4. Give Testimonials
You can have a section on your site recommending other sites and let those site owners know about your testimonial. Most people will link to your page as everyone likes a nice testimonial written about them.
Link Building Tip 5. Reach out to your Network
We all have friends and work colleagues who have their own sites. Most will be more than happy to link back to your site in exchange with a link to theirs. So have a good think about all the people you know who you could reach out to today.
Link building requires time and effort. It’s important to be consistent and not give up. Hopefully you can work your way through my top 5 link building tips and get yourselves some well earned links!
