Offpage – Link building best practices:

There are multiple ways to achieve the links, Two of them are:

  1. Competitor’s Backlinks Review
  2. Broken Link Building

1. Competitor’s Backlink Review & Link Building: 

For competitor’s back link, following process is perfected & is efficiently used to support our agency’s clients.

  • We will create back-link database after reviewing your competitor’s back link profile (& other relevant websites)
  • Prioritize the Link Building Opportunities (LBOs) & get your approval 
  • Build the links but if the website requires us to reach out to them then we search for their contact details (i.e. email, owners name) 
  • Customize an email & email to publishers – we will need you to provide your company email ID & BuzzStream account
  • Perform 3 iterations of the followup emails
  • Negotiate with the publisher (incase if there is a fee to build the link) to reduce the price of the link.
  • If a blog owner requires an article to build the link then the content will be your responsibility
  • Monitor the live links

Similarly, we perform the broken Link building for our agency’s clients & the process we have is:

2. Broken Link Building

There are two types of broken link building

I) Broken links on 3rd party website due to client’s website changes:

  • To perform this, we use Ahref tool. You need to provide the paid subscription of this tool.
  • We put the Client Company URL and go to the broken link tab.
  • We extract all the links. The extraction has URLs with 404 error and their DA.
  • We may get the long list. Therefore, we sort the list by DA and start analyzing each URL.
  • We remove all the links that have irrelevant content like Chinese language content, adult content etc.
  • We keep the links which has relevant content to client’s domain, and it has high Domain Authority.
  • Then, we perform the site analysis and find out which broken link can be replaced with the new website page, adding the potential new URLs in the Excel.
  • Now, we have a good list of broken link opportunities and we are ready to start outreach.
  • We customize an email to publishers – we need require end client’s company email ID & BuzzStream account.
  • We perform the outreach to get a live link from the broken link
  • We perform 3 iterations of the follow-up emails.

II) The Broken Links which were never pointed to Client’s Website:   

  • Perform Keyword research to get exhaustive list of keywords from Google
  • We use the Keyword list to find websites which has client’s brand mentioned
  • Then, we list out all the links and check for broken links.
  • We keep the links which has content relevant to client’s domain and it has high Domain Authority.
  • Now, we have a good list of broken link opportunities and we are ready to start the outreach.
  • We customize an email to publishers – we need require end client’s company email ID & BuzzStream account.
  • We perform the outreach to get a live link from the broken link
  • We perform 3 iterations of the follow-up emails.

– Similarly, we can perform the phrase search and get the resource pages.
