You may have well-written content, but sometimes content creation alone is not enough to make a website rank, especially in a competitive local environment. You may still fail to move the needle in terms of SEO, leaving your site unnoticed and collecting dust somewhere in Google’s back pages. That’s why you need a healthy link building strategy to help make your on-page SEO campaign efforts much more effective.
However, you need to be aware of a few things. Simply linking your content as much as possible won’t cut it. Ten years ago, the more links you had the better and easier it would be to outrank your competitors. But due to algorithm changes in Google, this is no longer the case. Today, link building is not so much about the quantity of the links you are receiving but more so about the quality. You don’t need a ton of them to accelerate your local SEO strategy. In fact, the more links you get can actually hurt you and make your content seem like spam.
Since throwing up any link on your site won’t be enough, you need to make sure the link themselves follow three core principles: authority, relevance, and trustworthiness. The quality of a link has everything to do with domain authority. The more trustworthy and influential the link, the more effective it will be. This is a measurement we use directly from MOZ and it is called DA or domain authority. Your local news stations and newspapers, for example, most likely have really high domain authority as their content is both relevant to current events and posted frequently.
Quality over quantity will put you in a winning position and that’s exactly what we do here at Service Inbound.
In addition to generating links, we will help you succeed through our Local SEO Linking Plan. We will start with a complete inventory of links you have compared to your competitors using SEO tools and provide a detailed checkup. Then, we’ll evaluate competitor link opportunities and bring you up apples to apples so you’ll be able to keep pace with the competition. We also build links in a natural frequency – if you’ve gone out and acquired 100 links in a single week, you’ll find it’s not effective. There is a certain link trajectory Google wants, and our team will make sure it’s completely right.
Our work ensures you’ll have links promoting trust and high domain authority helping your site reach new heights. With our help, it will become a valuable source of information and make for a better experience encouraging visitors to keep coming back. Search engines will also reward your linking efforts algorithmically and make your website perform better in search results. Remember: opportunities are out there for you to improve, and we’re the team to contact when you want to find them.
