Google’s algorithm reviews over 200 factors when ranking a page. Link building is one of the quickest and most effective ways to help your website rank on Google.
Top 5 tips to create a link building strategy
1. Build relationships
People are more likely to link to your website if they have a relationship with you. Before asking anyone for backlinks, start building relationships with businesses, bloggers and influencers in your industry.
2. Create a blog
The benefits of blogging can be an entire article on its own. However, when it comes to link building, posting frequent high quality content with backlinks to your site can work wonders.
3. Write a guest post
Craft an article about a common problem faced in your industry, offer a solution and include a backlink to your website. By posting this article on a credible website, you not only build a link, but you build a high quality one.
4. Give a testimonial
Write a testimonial for a client or company you’ve worked with and post it to either their website or a website relevant to your industry. Be sure to include a link to your website!
5. List your company website in an online directory
If you can find a credible, industry-specific online directory, be sure to list your website. Not only will this drive traffic to your website, but it will also help you rank on Google with your link.
