5 Easy Link Building Tactics In 2020
Most of the effective link building tactics have a deep relation with something called outreach. It is basically a strategic approach for reaching out to blog or website owners related to your niche and then turning them into one of your backlink providers following some creative tactics.
In this case, the main problem every newcomer experiences is whom to reach out to. Well, to be frank, it is not that much tough that you may be thinking at this moment.
You should consider the following 2 things in mind while reaching out to people in your niche –
- Site owners who have already placed your targeted keywords in their blog posts.
- People who have already given links to other articles similar to your topic.
For this purpose, you can also use paid tools like SEMrush and ahrefs as these tools can save a lot of your valuable time.
2. Guest Blogging
If you are in the SEO or SMM sector for a long period, then it can be assumed that you already have the name of this great link building technique called guest blogging.
But, for the newcomers – you may be thinking – how does this strategy work?
Well, the procedure is very simple. You just need to write articles for other websites on the niche of your website. They will then publish your post on their blog or site. And, you will get a link from those posts to your site. It is as SIMPLE as that.
3. Broken Link Building
Broken link building is another powerful and effective link building tactic that you can apply if you know the right way.
This particular link building tactic involves the following simple steps –
- Finding out a suitable broken link on a website that has similar content to your niche.
- Create a similar content that gives a better presentation of the broken source.
- Ask for the site owners to create links to your newly created fresh content instead of keeping the broken link.
However, finding out the broken links can be quite challenging if you don’t use any tools like SEMrush or ahrefs. So, think twice before you attempt to start this link building tactic.
4. Unlinked Mentions
If you have quality content on your site or blog, it is very common that other site owners will mention your brand name or blog name in their posts. Sometimes, it is quite possible that they may forget linking to your site even after mentioning your site or brand name.
All you need to do is to notify them about the mentions of your brand name in their contents. This will help you in getting free backlinks for your blog or site.
5. Link Reclamation
We all know the fact that creating backlinks is a tough job. You have to be very careful about the links you get from other sites similar to your niche.
Have you ever noticed that you may have been losing backlinks over time?
Well, this mainly happens for the following 2 reasons –
- The link may have been removed from the source post or page.
- The source page doesn’t exist anymore.
Try to find out the exact reason and initiate a step as soon as you can.
