Providing Amazing Value
You can often get SEO backlinks SIMPLY by providing amazing value on your blog. The story of Houston reaching over 100 million views on LinkedIn helped us get backlinks, just because of the sheer value it provides.
If the product or service you provide is widely recognized, reaching out to a media website in your industry with a simple inquiry might do the trick.
This will allow you to get relevant SEO Backlinks while improving brand awareness.
I’ve successfully built out backlinks in the past, just by sharing an exciting case study about how our business helped others.
A lot of websites provide the option or will allow you to post on their blog, as long as you are able to offer relevant content.
Contact the website owner and offer to write an amazing blog post. When you do, simply provide an Author's bio that includes a link to your website.
Reclaiming Old Links
Sometimes, in the process of updating content, your link might have been removed from a previously linking page.
Depending on the tool you use, you should get regular updates about the status of your links.
If you notice you’ve lost a link, it’s best to check in with the previous website owner and fix the issue.
Using an Outreach Tool
Of course, there are also PR and outreach tools that can also help you land some great backlinks to your website.
I recommend Ninja Outreach and BuzzStream as the best SEO Backlinks outreach tool in the industry.
If you decide to use either of these tools, simply use the training tutorials, explainers and steps provided by each tool to improve your outreach.
STEP #4: ENSURE THE TECHNICAL STABILITY OF YOUR PAGES
There are a few rules to follow to ensure you don’t negatively impact your SEO backlink rank benefits during a website update.
You can use Google Search Console and check the crawl errors section for issues with your website.
STEP #5: STAY UP TO DATE WITH THE INDUSTRY
Last, but not least, make sure to stay up to date with the industry. Search engine algorithms and trends are always changing and what might have worked in the past, won’t necessarily work in the future.
