Thank this time again. How in the world do you come up such great piece of information regarding the same subject every time you write a post. Just how? Well to inform you that you already know. When it comes to link building Brian Dean is undoubtedly the Dean of this university. Thank you Brian. Nice update. Previously I was following the article 17 untapped Backlink Sources. But this article is lot more improved and organized layout and make it easy to read.
Thanks for helping us. Can you confirm, it has no values if I get links from different niche authority site? Do you think, there will be penalty issue in future if I get irreverent links? But the value will be much less than a link from a related site. Awesome post Brian. I have followed your guide about skyscraper method and its been working out well. Need to tryout the other methods mentioned in this post.
These strategies are a great complement to The Skyscraper Technique. This is quality information as always Brian. But i want to ask you one question i always wanted to ask after reading every back link gainer blog posts. In that case how much of value backlinks gained by your blog posts will bring in to the main website or a particular page in your website you want to rank for? Can we expect a detailed article on the correlation between backlinks gained by blog posts and ranking of product pages?
Not only is the information contained within this page extremely valuable, the page itself is also a textbook example of a power page. Thank you, Brian! Thank you so much but I think in my niche is little harder, I am working in Arabic info, and before I read this post I think it will be impossible to rank, but I will still working in that.
I fill my post with lovely info-graphic I hope all can see. Thank you again. Man Brian, this is a great post on link building. Hi Brian, great guide… lots to learn… Just one question… How do you make your email not read like the average bs outreach as most of us get in our spam boxes on a daily basis? Thanks Emil. Like all of my guides, this guide was a beast to put together. Thanks for an outstanding link building guide, I just love the guestographic part and will try it for building quality back links for my site!
I did some research on ur blog site and saw a some big performance issues. I will come back to you on that with some more details. Not only is it well written and detailed, but visually easy to read, navigate and follow along. A great, shining example of what fantastic content and complete guides should look like.
I especially appreciate the example scripts—with lots of opportunities for customization. Cheers, Kevin. Luckily, I have years of link building experience so I had lots of examples to include in the guide. Not sure I would have seen it otherwise.
Great stuff as always, Brian! In I started a niche. Poor content, non-related backlinks, etc. Only on-page seo.
Now, my BIG question: Vali, it depends on the links that you build. If you build editorially-placed links from related sites, you should be good. This definitely helps! Thanks Abdul. Yup, the real world examples are HUGE.
So I focused on what I learned about link building from my own real-world experience. Great sound advice as always. There is no denying that hard work and authenticity is definitely a part of great web publishing. Thanks, Brian, looking forward to the next one. Could be that you lost links, a competitor gained new links, technical issues etc. I appreciate all you do to realize presence in the world.
In my case for a great organization! Superb Brian. Comment section placed at the end of post. Sure, your post is a must-read guide when it comes to link building. Guest posting has its place, but its not one of my top 10 link building strategies anymore. Awesome piece of content about Link Building! Thanks Brian for sharing such great stuff. As always, a great fan of yours, Pankaj! Again super helpful guide to SEO. I have been regular reader of your posts and successfully used your tips to improve my site ranking.
Your blog is one big powerhouse for understanding everything about backlinks and link building process. Absoutely brilliant article, Brian. This was a very useful guide in helping to shape our current link building strategy, very much appreciated! Well said, Amber. Article quality is KEY. But content promotion especially link building is just as important.
A fabulous resource as usual Brian. Thanks a million. You put a ton of work into this. Much appreciated. All of your posts are awesome and give a great SEO knowledge every time. I follow your blog from the first day and it contains cool and interesting facts about SEO. One thing I wish you to discussed somewhere in your article. Now this is what happening in every website is charging fee. You need to admit this fact Brain.. That said, certain publishers do charge for links see the 4 case studies from the guide.
Brian, I admire your success and becoming seo guru for mases! Yes, I really do! It is not blog where you can create graphics, add cool stuff like lists posts etc. In webshop you present products and only content you have is description of products and categories. Do you have any guidance about building back links for webshop?
I think a little bit different approach should be used. Amazing content, so much value! And also, reading your great post makes me want to create even better content myself. Awesome, Joakim. Hello Brian, Thank you so much for this information, I really enjoy reading your posts.
Thanks much and keep it up!! Regards Rob. Hi Brian, This is extremely helpful. We have been using your blog posts and benefiting by following the ideas and suggestions.
Thank you for another practical post. Great job! Hey Brian, thanks for another great post yet again. No worries its not SEO and we wont be rubbing elbows: Will deffinitely use these tactics and see how it goes.
I intend to document the entire process months 1x per week. Sounds good, Igor. I think a lot of these outreach strategies could help you build some great links to your new guides. Hey Brain, All the post was awesome, found the information step-by-step. Could you please help me in understanding it.
Raj, if you have visual assets on your site, search for them with Google image search to see who shares them without linking. Hello Brian, I was using your broken link techniques its worked i got link from wikipedia. Now I am going work on other techniques you mention above. You are awesome. Thanks for share with us awesome content ever. Great post, Brian. By the way, what do you do to make other sites link to your infographic not just steal it.
Daria, thank you. Key is to just get as many links as you can by asking them to add an attribution link. As usual, Brian delivers. Great work again! This is the kind of content that you want to read more than once and call it time well spent with zero doubt.
Thank you, Brian. Can I ask typically how long it takes to work through any of the above processes please? But it does take time anything worth it does! Broken Link techniques would be useful sometime but its very hard to find out broken links in my industry.
Rameez, it can be tough to find broken links. But once you find one, you can pop it into Ahrefs and see all the sites that still link to the broken page. As usual, another great post from you brian! This post is something i want to bookmark and read more few times. This is exactly what I need for 2 reasons: But my question is this: I was really thinking that Google is now no more give priority to link building and i was going to stop doing it but your blog again changed my mind and also you provided some really good stuff.
So i will restart all the things and hope i will get better result. I hope so and i am hoping some more backlink strategy for cheaper clients. I hope you will also take care of it and create one good blog. But I got one question which is bothering me for a while. Because it seems like if you have one authority page the homepage for example everything else does not seem to matter that much.
I found a lot of subpages from some websites which are almost always in the top 5 positions in Google. It seems like al those subpages just inherit this trust and then it just does not matter that much how many backlinks there are to a particular page.
As long it is connected to the root domain. So basically, my content is better, I have more quality and relevant backlinks but still that page from another site with zero backlinks and zero text is ranking top 3 in Google and mine is nowhere to be found. I cannot explain otherwise why pages with zero backlinks and zero text can be ranking in top results in Google while providing nothing SEO wise no text and no backlinks. You are really crushing it. I especially like the use of visual content to make the post more appealing and easy to follow.
This is seriously awesome. Yup, a pro design like this definitely helps your content stand out. Thanks you Brian for this article. Hi Brian, I run a linkbuilding company in The Netherlands and have to admit your info is a real inspiration for us! Thanks a million! Took notes, but will re read and re read.. Thank YOU for sharing this! What do those emails usually look like? Also, how many outreach emails do you usually send?
I read all of your blogs, sometimes even 3 to 4 times.
In my personal opinion, you are even better than Neil and others. When a professional — like you — puts content like the one in your new guide at free disposition of his e-mail subscribers, one can rest assured, that the content in your STW courses is eaven far better!
That said, speaking from a British perspective, I am not alone in saying that link-building in the UK is like trying to climb Everest with an elephant on your back. But I have so far been unable to get one backlink, even with with meticulously and forensically targeted and constructed outreach. That leaves Brits to focus on on-page SEO, blackhat methods, first-to-market approaches, or just abandoning the whole UK game and doing business in the US instead. But I know lots of UK-based link builders that have a ton of success with email outreach.
Thanks Darren. Dean, i gotta know how much work goes just into designing the layout of your posts. They are pieces of art. The imagery, graphics, and design flow are just so perfect. Thanks for this mammoth link building guide, Brian. Covers all essential aspects of link building.
I read all of your blogs, it really helps me a lot! Hello Brian, This indeed more than a definitive guide to link building. Oh my God, this article is enough to turn into a course and sell it. You really gave out a lot here. Honestly, link building is still very important as far as SEO is concerned in and beyond.
I feel more excited than every before getting my incoming site to be live soon. Thanks Brian for keeping me on the lope.
Thanks, Brian. You have the Midas Touch with every post you create. Do you have any ideas or resources that you can share on how to implement social media into a link outreach campaign? I have a terrible time getting decent conversions from cold emails for my clients. One of your best posts in my opinion.
It is so great when a post cover a subject all the way. Sent out mail already and hopefully to get some good links. Thank you so much Brian, This link building guide will be another great and classic post. Big work…. I think this is a great source of inspiration for all the SEOs out there! Great guide as usual! Wondering if you use a tool like Ninja Outreach or Buzzstream to manage your outreach efforts or is it all manual? Fred, those tools are helpful if you send lots of outreach emails or run an outreach team.
I have a query about resource pages link building. In your guide, you said find the pages with lots of out bound links. Is it good to have your link on a page solely created for links? These type of pages people still use to exchange links. Would be great to know your take on this. You definitely want to avoid pages that use link exchanges.
Fortunately, there are plenty of legit resource pages out there. Great guide. Read it once, but bookmarked for when it is time to implement. I kid of put off link building for a while… and by kind of I mean I completely dismissed it.
Would definitely like to try the tools and techniques you mentioned for our new website. Especially one that is as popular as you are.
I am truly in awe of that. Thanks for the great information Brain. Authority everywhere. What a superb design with solid advice on link building. Brian, this is awesomeness just. A colleague we work with at techaai recommended this guide ounce again to me.
She already left a comment here [Ruth] noticed while reading through. Again i am overwhelmed! To be honest, we have been using your guides as a way to learn and improve our blog. One of the things we started putting into practice is writing epic content not just blog posts. This has worked like charm. Credit to you. We owe you a cup of coffee!!
Thanks alot. Keep digging for us dude! Amazing piece of content. Kudos to Brian for sharing such quality, in-depth information. I just wanted to recommend a scroll to top button if possible, would help a lot. Or is this only bc you are already advanced and have lots of backlinks to this page so no longer need to link out as a prereq to getting backlinks?
Great question, Brent.
I like to link out to curated resources because a it provides a lot of value and b is relatively easy to put together. As you said, this page has done well as a traditional GTGB so I thought it was time to add some more meat to the guide. Your website provides the best tips about SEO. Great article as always. You are insanely good at making linkbuilding sound as easy as cooking a dish from a cookbook.
Fantastic resource as usual. Anyway, I know social media is not your thing, but personally, my approach to SEO is to build a strong brand using social media, press releases and building profile and branded links. I think once you have a strong brand, your editorial link building campaign would be more organic, especially if the user is in a niche that has low search volume.
I love the design of this article. It makes the resource seem more valuable and trustworthy. Hi Brian, Another amazing article from you.
Hi, Brian. I really like the way you explained things about link building and all that content promotion. This content definitely teaches me a lot. I will surely share this with my friends and colleagues. Keep it up! You rock Brian. Up to P2 for link building now too! Very impressive. Quick question….
Would this comment count as spam? Since I use Majestic, the results from there are little different PrtSc on https: How to contact them? Your formatting for these in depth guides is outstanding.
Do you have any recommendations for guides on how to format this way with WordPress? Thanks in advance. Please tell me how do you create such awesome Chapter layout at the beginning of the post chapter 1, chapter 2…chapter 7. Which tool do you use? How do you get such cool icons? I close my eyes and design of your page appears in front of my eyes. I keep finding myself coming back to your posts and guides. Truly, they are THE most thorough and epic resources available today!
Thank you so much for compiling all of this information into one location! There are so many great strategies that it can be overwhelming. According to the Google Keyword Tool this keyword has zero searches, even globally. Hi Brian great article here, Does this mean that posting a great article on your blog is not good enough to attract links to your site?
My niche is pretty broad sleep related stuff and my main issue if segmenting it into topics that would be viable for power pages. The Ultimate Guide. I will now methodically apply the principles as practice for my recently launched site. Who knows, maybe I can be a case study subject for you too. These are great white strategies that I need to be taking advantage of today. Email outreach can feel like a pain but in reality is such a valuable use of time.
It only takes a few good links to juice up the rankings. Thanks for the update enjoyed this read as much as the last one.
I just started to use your strategies for a customer of mine and they are already starting to pay off. I live in the Netherlands and I have a question finding good quality sites. When I use the skyscraper technique here in the Netherlands and fill in a keyword. I find that the nr 1 resource often has a ton of links from link exchange websites like startpagina.
Brian, thank you again for your comprehensive and thorough work! Thanks again! This Guide has been more than a Gold Mine for us! It has helped us in building several white hat links for our own and many of our client websites.
Thank for your guide, Brian. But I was just wondering why it is showing the backlinks from ShoutmeLoud as a nofollow one…I couldnt understand whats happening.. Am I not supposed to get dofollow backlink from blog commenting?? I have the same problem as above that I cannot get a do follow link for blog commenting.
What am I doing or not doing? I had subscribe to your blog for some time now, but this is actually the first time I would be commenting. Hey Brian, thank you for this resource for link building. Not only do you write quality content, but it is content you can take action on right now to start getting links for any SEO campaign.
I know I have been wanting to write another blog post and when I came to case study 3, I was blown out of the water by how many backlinks you can get from an inforgraphic on your site. This content has some creative juices flowing. Thanks for writing this amazing resource for link building and SEO, Cheers!! Great content, I watched a youtube video of yours and came here. Will surely apply techniques to build my blog. First off, awesome work! I have a site that ranks well for U.
What would you suggest that I do in order to rank for other markets that I actually need to appear in. In addition to the UK, there are about 30 markets that are important for me. Fantastic article, as always. Quick question: When emailing likely linkers, what is the angle?
Are we asking them to add a link to a current piece of content, write a new piece of content that includes our content, or otherwise? Btw, Can you link out to my site?
Just kidding…. Thanks for this great content!!! Very detail, organized, perfect and full of information. As a marketer I also believe that it is very important to make a back-link to a good quality and relevant site. This guide is wonderful! I especially love the Skyscraper technique — brilliant! Then offer to tell your story and share lessons on podcasts in your industry.
I am falling in love with your website. Every time I read one of your articles I am both impressed and educated. Are there free or cheaper alternatives to try? Hi Brian, interesting guide and the whole website too. Thoroughly enjoyable read!
I like the non-pushy approach which I sure work really well. Even if your blog just had this post, this will be the best blog about link building. Hey Brian!
Thanks for the guide. I am looking forward to receiving more stuff hopefully at the same level in my inbox. I am curious about your take on web 2. I read many places that they are good for authority and are good resources when it comes to creating diverse anchor texts?
Anyway, thanks for this article — and the ton of new ideas it has given me. I might never get an answer to this, but what wordpress content editor do you use, to design and present such beautiful and well written content?
But I still have a lot of questions want to ask you. I hired a company to help me build backlinks, they start working on that already more than 2 months.
I also got their reports that they have already build a lot of backlinks for me. But my DA is still in 1. Is that normal or the backlinks are not good enough? Do you have any suggestions? Thank you very much! Hi Brian, I tried your skyscraper technique last year and had amazing results. Are embedding script backlinks seen by google at the same level of quality as a regular backlink? I am building links from forums, So i want to know how many backlinks should i build in a day.
Is there any limit of building links in a day? If there is then how many links should i build in a day to avoid getting spam. Another great round up of ways to build links. Its funny how most havent changed over the years at all but fewer people seem to know or remember them.
If like most people you already have plenty of written content, you can upload this to Narro for free and it will turn your blog posts into spoken audio formats using different accents. You can then submit these to apple podcasts and others and have a fully fledged podcast series from your existing content to link out from and too.
Thank Brian for your great post. I think this is nature but other hand it could be a duplicate of my content. Ignore or disavow that url? Thank you!
Great post. What are your thoughts on scholarship links? This is probably my most successful piece of outreach in terms of time spent and conversion rate.
My client operates in a very technical industry. That was until the client called me one afternoon and told me that the BBC had picked up on one of the stories from their PR company but not included a link. The client was asking if we had any BBC contacts that we may be able to hit up, so I started the process here to try and get in touch with someone.
The hook: While this was happening, I took a closer look at the coverage and the reason why the BBC had covered my client. The reason was that they had a genuine news story connected to the London Olympics, so it was pretty timely.
I had my hook! What I did: I used three techniques to do this: I went through these one by one and checked to see if they were linking to the client.
The outreach: I managed to find contact details for all of these and quickly started to email them. I thanked them for covering the story and using the photos; then politely asked for them to add a credit link for the photos to the homepage of my client. Out of the 16 emails I sent, 15 linked to me. I was pretty happy with that! This book covers all the basics that you'll need to know before you can even get started building links such as:.

In fact, when BuzzSumo analyzed 1 million articles , they discovered that list posts generated more backlinks than other content formats…outperforming quizzes, videos and even infographics. But most importantly, that post is a link magnet. It has over 5, links. Why It Works: Statistics and data are highly-linkable. When someone cites your data, they link to you. Needless to say, this post contains a boatload of original data.
Like I mentioned above, most of these links come from people citing a particular statistic from our study: 4: In-Depth Ultimate Guides What It Is: A comprehensive resource that covers everything there is to know about a given topic and then some. Why It Works: Ultimate guides pack an insane amount of information in one place. This makes your guide THE go-to resource for that topic.
