Link building is the process of acquiring links from other websites to your own. There are many techniques for building links, and while they vary in difficulty, SEOs tend to agree that link building is one of the hardest parts of their jobs. Many SEOs spend the majority of their time trying to do it well. For that reason, if you can master the art of building high-quality links, it can truly put you ahead of both other SEOs and your competition.
The higher the number of backlinks to your website (from reputable websites), the higher your SEO score (Domain Authority). Effective link building positions your website as a quality, trustworthy and relevant resource, which in turn drives your site rankings high on Google.
Here are three strategies for link building campaigns
- Create exceptional content such as infographics or blog posts people may be interested in linking to.
- Guest blogging in reputable sites and linking back to your site.
- Use of Ego Bait: Ego bait is a piece of content that plays on the egos of the people who are featured within that content. The hope is that, by being included, these people feel better about and are more inclined to share the content with a link.
