  • Applies to not only link building, but a lot of things digitalDoesn’t have to be eCommerce, but eCommerce is the example of the types of sites to research for today’s presentation
  • Things to touch on:These examples are here only so when you look at slides after presentation, you have some ideas to start you off with.Keyword planner has an option to choose from a product category, so you can find lots of different spaces this wayOptimal opportunities are niches that aren’t dominated by eCommerce giants, but instead medium sized, product specific eCommerce shops.So with that said, let’s dive right into some examples of eCommerce link building.
  • They sponsored a relevant forum, and most importantly, they probably got lots of clicks from their links.Revenue generated from those clicks can pay for the sponsorship itself, meaning from an SEO perspective, those are free links.Takeaway: find relevant forums that have vendor sections.
  • They sponsored a relevant forum, and most importantly, they probably got lots of clicks from their links.Revenue generated from those clicks can pay for the sponsorship itself, meaning from an SEO perspective, those are free links.You can use these forums to push new products, big content, etc. to get the ball rollingTakeaway: find relevant forums that have vendor sections.
  • Bloggers like to create product list posts like this; sometimes labeled as “wish lists”.You can find them when they first get published by setting up mention alerts, by adding all relevant blogs to your RSS reader, or using Ahrefs to see your competitor’s freshest links- 4 ways you can go with this:1) Send them the product they mentioned, say it’s because you love reading their blog, don’t ask for anything in return2) Send them the product, ask if they would be interested in writing up a quick product review of it3) Send them the product, ask for them to replace the link to competitor’s product page with one to you. Emphasize why your page is more helpful to readers, or if not, do a discount for their readers.4) Do a giveaway to their audience; you could also throw in one for the blogger as well. Would get multiple links.
  • Just another example; seems to be more seasonal relatedNot going to find these opportunities for things like i.e. AC repair parts
  • Custom landing pages for different organizations / schools / etc. you give discounts to goes a long way

  • This isn’t necessarily just ecommerce; can work for any spaceThe idea is finding content, translating it, and getting links from the original to your translated page (ask for permission first, of course)They messed up by A) not translating relevant content, and B) they only seemed to target links from the original page they were translating
