TO NOT BUILD THEM AT ALL!

Matt Cutts Spreading FUD
A WebmasterWorld thread has
some fears that I see are beginning
to worry some publishers and
webmasters - the fear of linking to
external sources.
With Matt Cutts and the Google
spam team pretty much saying you
need to nofollow everything out
there, well, with the exception of
real editorial links (who is to
decide what is editorial),
webmasters are simply scared.

Content: Creation & Marketing
Publishing
content
that people
love will
allow you
to “earn”
links, not
too
mention
social
signals

Case Study: Infographic Journal
How Do We Do It?
Each post is pushed to IJ’s social media sites - Facebook, Twitter,
Google +, Pinterest & Tumblr.
Each post is pushed to personal social media sites - Facebook,
Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn & Pinterest.
Infographics that are really good are submitted to StumbleUpon.
Use StumbleUpon’s “Paid Discovery” for really, really good ones.
Occasionally do manual outreach via Twitter and/or email.
On rare occasion do the “Boost Post” option on Facebook.

@DavidWallace
Content Ideas
•

Resourceful Posts (Articles, Lists, Hot-Tos)

•

Guest Posts

•

Memes (Ego Bait, Interviews, etc.)

•

White Papers

•

Webinars

•

Images (funny, unique, animated)

•

Videos

•

Infographics (static, interactive, animated, video)

Make sure content originates on your site.
You “own” the content and visitors are drawn back to your site.
@DavidWallace
Content Marketing 101
•

Share on Facebook; consider utilizing Facebook Ads or Promote option under post.

•

Share on Twitter; consider utilizing Sponsored Tweets.

•

Share on Google + (both personal and company pages).

•

Submit good content to StumbleUpon. Use Paid Discovery to draw more attention.

•

Post to your Pinterest and Tumblr accounts. Link back to original.

•

Send an optimized press release via online PR sites such as MarketWire & PRWeb.

•

Reach out to “like-minded” bloggers to see if they will link-to or do write-up.

•

Utilize “guest blogging” to re-post video and infographics on prominent sites.

•

Having a large network of followers (influential status) will help promotion efforts.

•

If you lack influence, it might be wise to hire someone who does to share content.

•

Infographics - include an “Embed Code!” (infographicjournal.com/embed-code-generator/)

Links With Social Media
Using Social Media Profiles To Build Links

@DavidWallace
Links With Social Media
Links With Social Media
Using Social Media Profiles To Build Links
• Set up as many social media profiles as you can
• Fill in all information (i.e. real name, URL, location, bio, etc.)
• Upload an avatar
• Post/publish content where applicable
• Get profile URLs indexed

@DavidWallace
What No Longer Works
• Paid Links

• Sponsored Blog Reviews
• Article Marketing (Spinning)
• Directories
(except major and niche)
• Comments
(did they ever work at all)

@DavidWallace
Google Penalties
• Google is Not Fair!
• Is it a “real” penalty or a “fake” one (FUD)
• Use Backlinks Tool to analyze links
(Ahrefs, Majestic SEO, Moz)
• Identify site-wide links & links in
footers and navigation
• Identify links surrounded by “bad”
neighbors
• Reach out to webmasters asking them
to “nofollow” or remove links.
• In your outreach, DO NOT threaten
“Disavow!”
• No webmaster response – either remove
linking page or change URL or Disavow
• Document everything!

Ultimate Guide to Google Penalty Removal
http://moz.com/ugc/ultimate-guide-to-google-penalty-removal
@DavidWallace
Key Takeaways
• Don’t build links – earn them!
• Use creative content combined with strategic marketing to
earn links and social signals.
• If you must manually build links, use social media profiles.
• Google Penalties: Don’t freak out, document everything and
be nice!

Proactive Link Campaign Tactics - PubCon Vegas 2013

  • 1. Proactive Link Building Tactics Image Source: http://www.quicksprout.com Presented by: David Wallace CEO/Founder - SearchRank @DavidWallace
  • 2. What Is the Best Proactive Link Building Technique? TO NOT BUILD THEM AT ALL! Image Source: http://timbickers.com @DavidWallace
  • 3. Matt Cutts Spreading FUD A WebmasterWorld thread has some fears that I see are beginning to worry some publishers and webmasters - the fear of linking to external sources. With Matt Cutts and the Google spam team pretty much saying you need to nofollow everything out there, well, with the exception of real editorial links (who is to decide what is editorial), webmasters are simply scared. Search Engine Roundtable Aug 14, 2013 @DavidWallace
  • 4. Content: Creation & Marketing Publishing content that people love will allow you to “earn” links, not too mention social signals Image Source: http://www.smartinsights.com
  • 5. Case Study: Infographic Journal The Stats: • • • • • • • Site turned 2 years old on 9/28 Have never done any link building 0 posts to 3,500+ 7 to 10 posts published daily 0 backlinks to 68,000 Current Alexa Rank of 32,730 100,000+ monthly visitors @DavidWallace
  • 6. Case Study: Infographic Journal How Do We Do It? Each post is pushed to IJ’s social media sites - Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest & Tumblr. Each post is pushed to personal social media sites - Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn & Pinterest. Infographics that are really good are submitted to StumbleUpon. Use StumbleUpon’s “Paid Discovery” for really, really good ones. Occasionally do manual outreach via Twitter and/or email. On rare occasion do the “Boost Post” option on Facebook. @DavidWallace
  • 7. Content Ideas • Resourceful Posts (Articles, Lists, Hot-Tos) • Guest Posts • Memes (Ego Bait, Interviews, etc.) • White Papers • Webinars • Images (funny, unique, animated) • Videos • Infographics (static, interactive, animated, video) Make sure content originates on your site. You “own” the content and visitors are drawn back to your site. @DavidWallace
  • 8. Content Marketing 101 • Share on Facebook; consider utilizing Facebook Ads or Promote option under post. • Share on Twitter; consider utilizing Sponsored Tweets. • Share on Google + (both personal and company pages). • Submit good content to StumbleUpon. Use Paid Discovery to draw more attention. • Post to your Pinterest and Tumblr accounts. Link back to original. • Send an optimized press release via online PR sites such as MarketWire & PRWeb. • Reach out to “like-minded” bloggers to see if they will link-to or do write-up. • Utilize “guest blogging” to re-post video and infographics on prominent sites. • Having a large network of followers (influential status) will help promotion efforts. • If you lack influence, it might be wise to hire someone who does to share content. • Infographics - include an “Embed Code!” (infographicjournal.com/embed-code-generator/) @DavidWallace
  • 9. Links With Social Media Using Social Media Profiles To Build Links @DavidWallace
  • 11. Links With Social Media Using Social Media Profiles To Build Links • Set up as many social media profiles as you can • Fill in all information (i.e. real name, URL, location, bio, etc.) • Upload an avatar • Post/publish content where applicable • Get profile URLs indexed “The Ultimate Social Media Profile Chart” http://www.searchrank.com/social-media-profile-chart http://knowem.com @DavidWallace
  • 12. What No Longer Works • Paid Links • Sponsored Blog Reviews • Article Marketing (Spinning) • Directories (except major and niche) • Comments (did they ever work at all) @DavidWallace
  • 13. Google Penalties • Google is Not Fair! • Is it a “real” penalty or a “fake” one (FUD) • Use Backlinks Tool to analyze links (Ahrefs, Majestic SEO, Moz) • Identify site-wide links & links in footers and navigation • Identify links surrounded by “bad” neighbors • Reach out to webmasters asking them to “nofollow” or remove links. • In your outreach, DO NOT threaten “Disavow!” • No webmaster response – either remove linking page or change URL or Disavow • Document everything! Image Source: http://sem-group.net Ultimate Guide to Google Penalty Removal http://moz.com/ugc/ultimate-guide-to-google-penalty-removal @DavidWallace
  • 14. Key Takeaways • Don’t build links – earn them! • Use creative content combined with strategic marketing to earn links and social signals. • If you must manually build links, use social media profiles. • Google Penalties: Don’t freak out, document everything and be nice! @DavidWallace
