Research shows that backlinks are more important than ever, in terms of ranking factors. It’s therefore wise to use a link-building agency who can secure high-quality links that will help you improve your search-engine rankings for the long term.
Link building is the process of creating and generating opportunities for other websites to link back to your website. It’s a key SEO consideration for Google because if other websites link to yours as a reference point, this demonstrates that you are an authoritative source of information.
By creating a strong referral network with lots of backlinks, via the process of link building, search engines improve your DA (Domain Authority). Domain Authority is one of the key components to SEO and improving organic rankings, so link building should be a core element of your organic ranking strategy.
They demonstrate to search engines the importance of a website, as well as its genuine authority about a subject matter
Where good backlinks are placed, organic traffic will follow. This will contribute to search engines making a site even easier to find
Faster indexing is a direct result of a large number of quality backlinks, making a website easier to discover search-engine bots.
All of these reasons come down to one thing: links are still Google’s number-one ranking factor, so without them, you will not succeed at SEO.
Do not waste money on poor-quality content placed on websites with limited traffic, low-ranking keywords and poor Domain Authority (DA). Focus on quality not quantity, and remember that your link-building efforts must look natural. This is where a quality link-building agency like Woo comes in. Typically we will follow the following process:
Before we begin, we learn about your business and who your target audiences are.
By looking at your nearest competitors, and the websites that are doing better than yours, we can help form a list of sites to target.
Armed with the knowledge of who your target audiences are, we identify the types of websites they spend their time on and start to develop a prospect list.
After studying the websites to see what types of content they publish, that would also be relevant to your business.
Before we create any content we pitch ideas to websites to make sure we have agreement and they are bought into what we are trying to achieve.
We use industry-experienced copywriters to create cutting-edge content with best-practice anchor text to ensure the content will be well received and your links look natural.
A copywriter is someone who writes text for advertising and/or marketing purposes. This writing, or ‘copy’, is used to help sell or give information about a product or service. Copywriters use a combination of skilful, persuasive writing, industry knowledge, research skills and excellent grammar to create engaging sales and marketing copy for your business.
A follow link tells Google to follow said link to another website. For example, if you had a backlink from another website with a ‘dofollow’ link, search engines and their crawlers would follow the link from Website A to your website, crediting you with a backlink and another ‘point’ towards your overall organic ranking.
A nofollow link is one that you place on certain elements of your website to tell a search engine (or more specifically, their crawlers) not to follow that link. For example, you may use a nofollow link to tell search engines not to crawl your login page because this would hold very little extra information and would not necessarily need to be indexed, but it would still allow people to follow these links.
An internal link is a link from one page on your website to another page on your website. The most common example of this is in a navigation bar or in the footer of your website. Internal links help your users to navigate through your website, but they also work by helping search engines to create a hierarchy, determining which content from your website should be indexed and ranked.
Anchor text refers to the hyperlinked words that are used within copy on a website. It is clickable, usually appearing as blue, underlined text and takes you to another page or piece of content either within your own website, or to a reference point on another website.
