Build Links From Outdated Resources
This is one of the most unknown methods. Do you know that is a helpful method to create a high quality backlink?
Yes, it is.
This method means you can get links sites that are stopped working or outdated. This is just like getting a goldmine.
Here are the steps
Your first step is to find sites in your niche that have:
- Changed names
- Moved to a new URL
- Stopped offering a service
- Stopped updating a resource
- Shut down
In the second step, you have to find sites still linking to the old, outdated URL
You may think how to do this?
It’s simple. Just put the outdated URL into your backlink checking tool of choice.
You can use Ahrefs for this. Then, check out all the websites that link to the old URLs.
From these sites, you have an opportunity to get a link.
In the last step, reach out and get your links.
Your last step should be reaching out to all of the people that still link to the outdated resource.
You just have to aware them about the outdated link and gently suggest that they add your link to their site.
Because you added value to their site twice once aware then about the outdated link and again by showing them your valuable resource — people were more happy to add a link to your post.
The most important step in this process is to find out the outdated links. Broad your vision and you will definitely find one.
This will boost your link profile and you can find links from sites like .edu and .gov.
Use proven content formats
You may think what is a proven content format?
Yes, there is study. BuzzSumo recently did a study of 1 million articles and blog posts.
They discovered that most content on the internet is completely ignored. In fact, they found that 75% of all online content have ZERO links.
In this study they discovered that the following content formats generate lots of backlinks:
- List Posts
- “Why” Posts
- “How to” Posts
List posts perform consistently well as a content format. According to your post try to list-out some list kind of article and make it super throw.
Quiz, infographics increase user engagements and increase the chance of social media shares.
People like list type of contents because it gives a serialize view. The list type of content is easy to scan for a person as compared to just lengthy content.
Next time on-words, when you are going to write a content try to add these type of content formats.
Some SEOs says that guest blogging is dead. But it is not true at all. It was there and it is still there.
Yes, it is very hard now but not completely dead.
Guest blogging is one of the trusted ways to build high quality backlinks to your website.
Generally, the websites who accept guest post rank higher in Google. Means their domain authority and page rank is high. This is what every guest blogger wants.
Who doesn’t need to get a backlink forma high domain authority site?
Yes, it very hard to find these type of site in your niche because most of the site have stopped accepting guest posts.
But the tree is still alive although the leaps are dried.
Invest some time to find out these type of website who accepts guest post. More important is to find a good website in your niche.
I agree that it is hard to get these type of website but not an impossible one. You will get your reword what you have invested in form of searching.
If it is easy, everyone doing this. So keep it in mind.
If you write a great article in your guest post, then you can even get more people to link to it. The more authority your guest post is, higher will be the backlink quality. It will transfer more authority to your website.
The more you guest post and get a backlink to your site, better will be your link profile.
Many people asked me is blog commenting can be used to build backlinks? Is it a strategy to build a backlink in 2018?
My simple answer is yes, but there are some stipulations.
The stipulations are:
Don’t spam your link by commenting everywhere you saw a comment section. Try to comment in your niche and write a valuable comment.
Don’t waste time to build no-follow comments. These are useless for building backlinks.
Try to build more do-follow comments and it will help you build quality backlinks.
This method is too old and some SEOs said that is no more. But it is alive still.
Some recent Google updates may ignore these comment section backlinks. It is seen that people are just spamming around. So we may assume that Google may ignore this comment section backlinks in the future but not clear yet.
This is a secrete method and fewer people known about it. So apply this method before it rushes.
What is this method?
Based upon your niche develop a strategy that has something unique about it. You need not create a new method. Instead of this, you can give a unique name to an existing method.
Let’s take an example and you will clear about it.
SEO expert Brian Dean (founder of Backlinko) has developed a technique. Actually, the technique is for boosting search traffic.
He named that method as “The Skyscraper Technique”. Believe it or not, this name only is super hit in SEO industry. The post only has more than 3,561 social share and tons of backlink.
You may get my point. Just be innovative and name it.
No need to give a most creative name.
Other than that, just make sure to use one of these words in your strategy name: method, system, technique, approach, and blueprint.
You get the idea.
If you’re serious about building high quality backlink strategy then you should align social signals.
Social signals aware search engines how active and updated your website is. So it is good for you. More active your website on social media, the better your rankings.
I’m not saying that you need to be active on every single social platform. But the reality is the more places you present and updated, the better you can engage your audience.
You can automate the whole process by social media automation tools.
