3 Tips On Link Building

3 tips for online link buildingPeople often overlook link building. They mainly focus on creating content and other search engine optimization strategies. In order to increase your search rankings, you must put more focus on building links. You have to get out of the comfort of your website and begin to interact with other online sources. Here are some useful link building strategies to help you get started.

Use Infographics to Get More Links

Most people only recognize guest blogging as a perfect way to get links. Infographics can also help you build quality links in a way you cannot imagine. The process of getting links using infographics is the same as the one used in guest blogging. However, there is an extra step you need to take to get more links. This extra step is based on the fact that some web owners will attach your infographics and fail to give you a link at the same time. You need to contact such web owners and ask them to give you a link.

In order to get the link you deserve, you must get a copy of the file where all your infographics are hosted. Note, you must get the actual png and jpg files rather than the URLs. You can get this by right-clicking on the infographics and selecting “Copy Image URL”. After that, go to Google Images and look for the camera symbol located at the right end of the search box. Paste the copied URL and click search. You will get results of web pages that have matching images. Go to these pages and see if there are links pointing back to your website. If you find no link, then drop a quick email to the page owner asking him to add a link to the original source of the content.

Create Quality Content

You need to create quality content. The content should provide useful information to the readers. If your readers like it, they will most likely share it with friends, spreading if farther across the internet. Add social media buttons at the bottom or top of the content to make it easier to share.

Also, participate in creating collaborative content to help you get more links. Creating a collaborative content will enable you to use the expertise of other influencers to create a high-quality content. Such content will go viral, enabling you to earn more links and social shares. Also, the people you collaborate with have their own platforms and audiences, which will generate even more links. It is also worth mentioning that when creating content, you need to include keywords for search engine optimization.

Be Locally Involved

You need to get links from local organizations that give out awards or run contests. Your local chamber of commerce, for instance, has some programs that give awards to best-performing businesses in the community. If you happen to get an award or even a nomination for an award, you will get backlinks that have a stronger influence on local searches. You will also gain recognition and brand visibility in front of a highly targeted audience.

Apart from qualifying for awards and nominations, you need to be involved in activities affecting your local community and build offline relationships. Doing so will help you develop local links as more businesses in the area recognize your involvement. Some of the ways you can get involved include making donations to local charity organizations, organizing sporting events, participating in trade fairs, starting local scholarships of high school and college students, partnering with local journalists or creating a group or club related to your industry.

Parting Shot

Link building is challenging. It requires hard work, commitment, patience and resilience. If you are not ready for the highly engaging work that comes along with this, you may not succeed. Start today using the tips discussed above, and you will reap a lot of benefits in the weeks, months or even years to come.

Thank you for improving our SEO. You were upfront (which is more than i can say from our last agency) and honest. Thank you for pointing out the mistakes our last agency made using tactics frowned upon by Google and getting us back on the right track. 7 months with you guys has been better than the last year and a half with 2 other agencies.

I am glad i found you sooner rather than later our PPC spend was out of control and yall helped me increase sales while decreasing spend. I knew something wasn't right and yall quickly turned it around. I'm not going to try and do the "marketing" stuff on my own anymore.

Thank you to Kyle and his team for their hard work and dedication. Kyle literally spent the first 3 months being my main point of contact and he is the CEO! With a large budget like we spend its nice to know the owner of the company is available to take my calls and meet with me. He was in the office everyday we dropped in and our new account manager Ryan is just as good! The positive ROI has been amazing and i can't wait to bring my new start up on board from the begining when it launches in December of 2018.

Very pleased with the work. WMC has kept in constant communication with me about any changes, and although marketing requires a lot of patience, they have been putting 110% into their work with exceptional professionalism.This makes me feel like I am part of the family. Shout out to Kyle and Jess for making things happen. Jess is phenomenal.

Top notch customer service and very knowledgeable when it comes to PPC marketing. Austin is our PPC account manager and he is always available to take my call. Our business has tripled sales over the last 5 months. I highley reccomend you contact them the consultation was free and they are very laid back and not some huge 500+ employee agency that never has time for you.

We needed an Orlando marketing agency that could meet the daily needs of our company and we have met our match made in heaven. Website Marketing Company has not only done what we hired them to do but they have exceeded our expectations. Friendly staff and its right down the road from our Orlando office which makes it convenient.

We went through 4 "marketing agencies" before we finally had results with Website Marketing Company. All agencies are not created equal and we learned you get what you pay for. Other agencies locked us into a contract and charged extra fees we were not aware of before signing up. All of that is a thing of the past now with y'all. You were upfront and honest, no extra fees, no contracts and i feel at home. Prompt replies to my emails and a detailed breakdown in easy to understand language.

Our business has significantly improved due to the marketing strategy that you implemented. We even had a last minute change that needed to be made and we were able to call our account manager Austin on Christmas and he had the changes implemented the same same day! Thats customer service and can't wait wait for 2019.

This company was originally helping us with our SEO and website improvements, but they have now progressed into assisting us with our social media presence. I was completely oblivious to how effective social media can be for leveraging new customers. Over the past few months, they have been very successful in attracting and influencing new customers and building our organic presence. I’ve learned a lot about the right and wrong ways to improve our business thanks to Mike and the marketing team. Thank you for your honesty, transparency, and guidance! I look forward to a continued and prosperous partnership between the both of us. Best Regards,Angel

I would recommend them wholeheartedly if you’re running a local business! Cheers to SUCCESS!

I have a very busy schedule. Therefore, I do not like to spend my free time hassling my marketing company for updates regarding work I’m paying for. I had that issue with a few other marketing companies before finally migrating over to this company. They are organized and it shows because my status report at the end of the month is always detailed and pinpoints exactly what kind of results were achieved during that specific month. So far, they haven’t missed a month. My SEO has drastically improved and I’m looking forward to running more campaigns as they continue to prove they are capable. Special thanks to Austin and Peter for being consistent and personable to do business with.

If you’re looking to explode your rankings, this is the right company for the job. I own a dog sitting business and I’m partnered with corporate partners like Rover, but despite that, I knew my business could be improved even more. I handle my own social media marketing, so I really only needed this company for Google ranking purposes. They skyrocketed me to the number 5 position in my niche and city in just 2 weeks. I was probably on the 3rd or 4th page before that, so they really worked their magic. What’s crazy to me is, this is JUST the beginning of what my business’s rankings are capable of!
