Is your website suffering from a lack of quality backlinks? If so, you might be scratching your head, wondering how on earth you can find the time to build more links. The good news is that it needn’t take hours of your time. With some targeted link building techniques, anyone can build quality backlinks. All you need is around one hour per day. That’s it!
Create Interesting Content
Content is still king. According to experts from the Big Foot Agency, the best way to generate high-quality links from influential websites and bloggers is to create high-quality content other people want to link to. You can easily write a piece of great content for your blog or website in less than an hour, or pay someone to do it for you. Be creative, say something different, and build your reputation as an expert in your niche.
Promote Content on Social Media
Writing great content is not the end of the process. You also need to promote it. Spend an hour promoting your blogs and articles on social media. Tell your fans about your post and let them know why they should read your latest blog. The more shareable your content is, the more links you can generate to your website.
Write Content for Social Media
Write targeted content for social media. This is a quick and easy way to build social backlinks. Google like social love and the more social media backlinks you generate, the better. Be careful not to overdo it, however, as social audiences have a low tolerance for spam posts.
Approach high-quality websites and offer to produce a guest post for them with a link back to your website. So long as your content fits their niche and offers value to their audience, they should accept your offer. Spend an hour a day writing guest posts or searching for high authority domains that might accept your content. Always be polite when approaching a webmaster with a request to publish a guest post. In most cases, quality talks, but if they say “no”, don’t pester them.
Many blogs don’t accept comments with links, but some do and it is worth commenting on niche blogs if you can include a link. Make sure any comment you make is relevant to the article. Say something insightful and offer other commenters helpful advice. That way, your comment is less likely to be deleted by the blog owner.
Regular forum members can create a user bio with a link. Spending time building a presence on a relevant forum can be useful in this regard. Each time you post, you create a new backlink. However, be wary of posting content on low-quality forums, as this could harm your SEO efforts.
Add Your Business To Directories
Finally, look for local business directories and add your business details, together with a website link. Google, Yelp, Better Business Bureau, Business Link, Yell.com, are all good places to start.
