    • Preparing Link Building Campaigns forCompetitive Markets
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing| a4uexpo Europe, Munich, May 2010
    • About this Session
      I’m Jane Copland
      I work at Ayima, an Internet marketing agency in London that specialises in organic SEO
      Prior to that, I worked at SEOmoz in the
      United States.
      This session is about planning link building campaigns
      Q&A starts now
      This shouldn’t be me standing lecturing for an hour!
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Five Most Common Link Building Mistakes
      This morning, I’ll cover the following…
      Building links too quickly
      Building too many links to competitive internal pages
      Creating an over-optimised backlink profile
      Not creating a diverse backlink profile
      Focusing entirely on one method of link building
      Not thinking of Google as if it were human
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • More pre-link building research
      I will also cover…
      Researching a site’s existing backlinks
      What to do if a site’s previous owners were spammers
      How much can you rely on a site’s old links?
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Building Links Too Quickly
      How do you get Google tocredit your site with the benefitof all these new links but notnotice the unnatural rate of growth?
      If this sort of growth did happennaturally, you don’t need to worry inmost circumstances.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Building too many competitivedeep links
      It’s usually unnatural if too many competitive links point to internal pages and not enough point to the home page / root of the domain.
      There are notable exceptions, but most commercial sites aren’t an exception.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Creating an Over-OptimisedBacklink Profile
      This is not the backlink profilefor creditcard.com.
      The first “brand mention” is the34th most popular anchor text.
      Smaller sites usually make this mistake far more often than bigger brands.

    • Do this instead…
      This is the backlink profile of egg.com. Egg.com is the highest ranking root domain (not domain.com/file.html) for [credit cards] in the UK.
      The best part is, this is easier to create! Why? Because it’s what happens “naturally”.

      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Creating a diverse backlink profile
      “Diversity” covers a range of different things…
      People tend to look at this column
      Google tends to look at this column
      Site-wide links have their place, but you can’t rely on them for link building
      Google also notices when a large number of you links come from sites hosted on the same server as your site.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Use multiple methods of link building
      Relying on only one method can severely limit your success
      The most successful link building campaigns make use of every avenue available to them.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Who created Google?
      Who works at Google?
      (Actually, they probably don’t. But let’s pretend)
      So who does Google think like?
      It thinks like a person. What you can’t fool a person with, you may not be able to fool Google with.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Link building differs depending on the domain
      How you build links and what type of links they are depends on what has been done tothe domain in the past.
      Backlink analysis is vital BEFORElink building commences .
      As with types of link building, use all the options and resources available for backlink analysis.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • Oh, crap.
      The person responsible for building links to the site before you was an idiot. Some ofthese are yours
      Or maybe a competitor bought loads of awful links for your site?
      Ask for removal! Although some people will ask for money to do this.
      Getting nowhere? You may find that Google has already discounted the links.
      Find yourself penalised / not ranking as well as you should and think it’s these links’fault? File for reconsideration.
      This is not an admission ofguilt! However, be aware thatsomeone might look at the site closely…
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • How much can you rely ona site’s old links?
      Google wants to be able to “reset the clock” for a domain when it sees thatit has been purchased by a new company or individual.
      Google is a registrar and thus has access to domains’ histories.
      Jane Copland | Ayima Search Marketing | a4u Munich, May 2010
    • If you haven’t been doing so already…
      Please start asking questions!
      No hands up:This makes me sad
      Please look more interested than these guys. Please.
