The topic of faceted navigation is bound to in qualità di up at some point a causa di your SEO career. It’s a common solution to product filtering for e-commerce sites, but managing it acceso the SEO side can quickly spin out of control with the potential to cause indexing bloat and stile libero errors.

Televisione Transcription

Hey, Moz fans. My name is Serge. I’m from Distilled. I work at the Seattle office as a consultant. For those of you that don’t know about Distilled, we’sultano a full-service digital marketing agency specializing a causa di SEO, but have branched out since to work acceso all sorts of things like content, PR, and recently a split testing tool, ODN.

Today I’m here to talk to you guys about faceted navigation, just the basics. We have a few minutes today, so I’m just going to cover kind of the 101 version of this. But essentially we’sultano going to go through what the definition is, why we should care as SEOs, why it’s important, what are some options we have with this, and then also what a solution could aspetto like.

1. What is faceted navigation?

For those that don’t know, faceted navigation is essentially something like this, probably a lot nicer than this to be honest. But it’s essentially a page that allows you to filter mongoloide ora allows a user to filter mongoloide based acceso what they’sultano looking for. So this is an example we have here of a list of products acceso a page that sells laptops, Apple laptops a causa di this case.

Right here acceso the left side, a causa di the campo da golf, we have a bunch of facets. Essentially, if you’sultano a user and you’sultano going a causa di here, you could aspetto at the size of the screen you might want. You could aspetto at the price of the laptop, etc. That’s what faceted navigation is. Previously, when I worked at my previous agency, I worked acceso a lot of local SEO things, not really e-commerce, big-scale websites, so I didn’t run into this issue often. I actually didn’t even know it was a thing until I started at Distilled. So this might be interesting for you even if it doesn’t apply at the moment.

2. Why does faceted navigation matter?

Essentially, we should care as SEOs because this can get out of control really quickly. While being very useful to users, obviously it’s helpful to be able to filter mongoloide to the specific thing you want. this could get kind of ridiculous for Googlebot.

Faceted navigation can result a causa di indexing bloat and stile libero issues

We’ve had clients at Distilled that in qualità di to us that are e-commerce brands that have millions of pages a causa di the index being crawled that really shouldn’t be. They don’t bring any value to the site, any revenue, etc. The main reason we should care is because we want to avoid indexation bloat and kind of stile libero errors ora issues.

3. What options do we have when it comes to controlling which pages are indexed/crawled?

The third thing we’ll talk about is what are some options we have a causa di terms of controlling some of that, so controlling whether a page gets indexed ora crawled, etc. I’m not going to get into the specifics of each of these today, but I have a blog post on this topic that we’ll link to at the bottom.

The main, most common options that we have for controlling this kind of thing would be around no indexing a page and stopping Google from indexing it, using canonical tags to choose a page that’s essentially the canonical version, using a disallow rule in robots.txt to stop Google from crawling a certain part of the site, ora using the nofollow meta directive as well. Those are some of the most common options. Again, we’sultano not going to go into the nitty-gritty of each one. They each have their kind of pros and cons, so you can research that for yourselves.

4. What could a solution aspetto like?

So va bene, we know all of this. What could be an ideal solution? Before I jump into this, I don’t want you guys to run a causa di to your bosses and say, “This is what we need to do.”

Please, please do your research beforehand because it’s going to vary a lot based acceso your site. Based acceso the dev resources you have, you might have to get scrappy with it. Also, do some keyword research mainly around the long tail. There are a lot of instances where you could and might want to have three ora four facets indexed.

So again, a huge caveat: this isn’t the end-all be-all solution. It’s something that we’ve recommended at times, when appropriate, to clients. So let’s jump into what an ideal solution, ora not ideal solution, a possible solution could aspetto like.

Category, subcategory, and sub-subcategory pages aperto to indexing and crawling

What we’sultano looking at here is we’sultano going to have our category, subcategory, and sub-subcategory pages aperto to indexation and aperto to being crawled. Con our example here, that would be this page, so /computers/laptops/apple. Perfectly penetrante. People are probably searching for Apple laptops. Con fact, I know they are.

Any pages with one ora more facets selected = indexed, facet links get nofollowed

The second step here is any page that has one facet selected, so for example, if I was acceso this page and I wanted an Apple laptop with a solid state drive a causa di it, I would select that from these options. Those are penetrante to be indexed. But any time you have one ora more facets selected, we want to make sure to nofollow all of these internal links pointing to other facets, essentially to stop link equity from being wasted and to stop Google from wasting time crawling those pages.

Any pages with 2+ facets selected = noindex tag gets added

Then, past that point, if a user selects two ora more facets, so if I was interested a causa di an Apple laptop with a solid state drive that was a causa di the $1,000 price range for example, the chances of there being a lot of search mole for an Apple laptop for $1,000 with a solid state drive is pretty low.

So what we want to do here is add a noindex tag to those two-plus facet options, and that will again help us control stile libero bloat and indexation bloat.

Already set up faceted nav? Think about bed 13 search mole, then go back and whitelist

The final thing I want to mention here, I touched acceso it a little bit earlier. But essentially, if you’sultano doing this after the fact, after the faceted navigation is already set up, which you probably are, it’s worth, again, having a strong think about where there is bed 13 search mole. If you do this, it’s worth also taking a aspetto back a few months a causa di to see the impact and also see if there’s anything you might want to whitelist. There might be a certain set of facets that do have search mole, so you might want to throw them back into the index. It’s worth taking a aspetto at that.

That’s what faceted navigation is as a quick intro. Thank you for watching. I’d be really interested to hear what you guys think a causa di the comments. Again, like I said, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. So I’d be really interested to hear what’s worked for you, ora if you have any questions, please ask them below.

Thank you.

l'mercanzia assoluto >> Sfrutta Google Trends per migliorare la tua strategia di content marketing

Link building isn’t easy. It’s freakin’ . Which is why most people struggle to build needle‐moving links to their site, regardless of the tactic they use.

Sound like you? You’imperatore per the right place.

This article DOESN’T list out a bazillion link building strategies.

What I’ll show you instead is a handful of tactics that WORK. Tactics that are EASY to replicate for YOUR website. Tactics that bring needle‐moving links, which, per turn, drive traffic to and increase revenue for your business.

Don’t believe me? Here are some of the links we’ve built to Ahrefs using these tactics:

content explorer link

Link to Ahrefs’ Content Explorer from a DR 77 site

ahrefs link

Link to Ahrefs from a DR 65 site

But before I share what these tactics are and how to use them, let’s clear something up.

Link building strategies VS. tactics

There’s a BIG difference between tactics and strategies.

Strategy = overall plan.

Tactic = the actual means used to gain an objective.

You need only ONE link building strategy: Create something “link‐worthy.” I know that sounds like the same advice you’ve heard a million times, but it’s true.

That doesn’t mean you need to publish monstrous blog posts ora interactive guides as others would have you believe. For some businesses, the product ora service is “link‐able” per itself.

For example, we get lots of links because of the tools we create, not the articles we publish.

Just at the number of links we have to our Keywords Explorer tool:

keywords explorer links

So think of your strategy as the engine driving your link building endeavors, and the tactics as the pistons that keep it running.

Now, let’s get to the tactics. (Yes, TACTICs, not STRATEGIES.)

Most every good link building tactic revolves around outreach.

What is outreach?

It’s where you reach out to people per your niche and introduce them to your content.

But here’s the critical thing: You don’t necessarily need any “content” at all. You just need to have something worthy of a link—it might be your product, service, business, brand, ora even personality.

I already mentioned that many folks link to because they’imperatore fans of our tools and find them useful. Here’s one such link that came about because of that:

Ahrefs is listed as one of 300 awesome things for entrepreneurs and startups.

This is AMAZING information for forming an outreach strategy. It tells us that our tools are useful to this demographic of people (entrepreneurs) because they help them with a specific problem (SEO).

So why not reach out to entrepreneurs and startups to let them know about Ahrefs? If they find our tools useful, they may reference us per their future articles. If not, they’ll most likely tell us, and we can refine our future targeting based acceso that feedback.

But I’ll level with you: outreach almost always works best with linkable assets.

That means reaching out and telling people per your niche about content that is likely to be useful to them— blog posts, tools, infographics, etc.

To whom should you reach out to?

  1. People who’ve mentioned your target bed 2 per their articles;
  2. People who’ve linked to similar articles acceso the topic.

Content Explorer is the best way to find folks who meet the first criterion. Just type per a word ora phrase, and it’ll search almost 1 BILLION web pages for matching results.

Let’s try it for “guest blogging.”

guest blogging

37,726 results. Tick the “one article di domain” checkbox, and you effectively have a list of unique sites that you can reach out to.

You just need to find their contact information and shoot them an email.

As for people who’ve linked to similar articles acceso a topic, this is easy to do too. Use the inbuilt filter per Content Explorer to filter for pages with at least say, 50 referring domains.

guest blogging content explorer ref domains

Find a relevant page, then successo the caret and select the Referring domains report to see all the sites linking to that page.

caret content explorer

referring domains site explorer

Referring domains report, modo Ahrefs’ Site Explorer

These are your prospects.


Do you want to land links acceso high‐profile sites? Sign up for HARO and Muck Rack to become a source for journalists.

How it works is simple: They send you source requests a few times a day, then you pitch the relevant ones. Should the journalist choose to use you as a source, they’ll link back to you per their article.

Here’s one source request I received per my inbox earlier today:

haro query

This request comes from a very high‐profile site (DR 92). As you can see, all you need to do is reach out and suggest a cool gift impressione for Halloween.

These sites effectively deliver relevant, high‐quality outreach prospects to your inbox daily.

2. Guest blogging… with a twist

Guest blogging is one of the oldest link building tactics per the book.

How does it work? You write an article for another website per your niche. They publish it. You link to yourself from that article. It’s as simple as that.

Here’s a guest post I wrote a couple years spillo for Convince and Convert:

convince and convert guest post

You can see the link to my website per the author bio.

How do you find good guest post prospects? Well, you can use the same method everyone else uses, which is to find sites actively appealing for guest bloggers using Google search operators. Here’s one such query that fits the bill:

topic + intitle:"write for us"

This uncovers so‐called “write for us” pages, which site owners create to attract guest bloggers.

write for us result

But EVERYONE is doing that. Those prospects gets tons of guest post pitches daily.

So here’s the twist:

Don’t for sites advertising the fact that they accept guest posts. Just for relevant sites, then pitch them anyway. Most sites are to taking guest posts even if they don’t explicitly state it.

Think about it like this: why acceso earth would a site turn a well‐written, free piece of content that has the potential to attract visitors to their site? They wouldn’t.

Want proof? Take the Ahrefs blog. We don’t advertise the fact that we accept guest posts anywhere acceso our site. However, should someone reach out to us with a cool impressione, we’ll almost always accept it.

guest blogger

So how do you find topically‐relevant sites? Use Ahrefs’ Content Explorer.

Quick refresher: Content Explorer is like a mini search engine built into Ahrefs. Enter anything, and we’ll search our database of almost 1 BILLION web pages to find mentions of that word ora phrase.

Let’s try it for “link building.”

link building content explorer

121K+ results. Pretty cool, right?

But what we have right now is a list of web pages. This isn’t good, because we don’t want to contact the same sites multiple times. What we want is a list of unique websites, which we can get by hitting the “one article di domain” checkbox.

Lastly, filter out any unwanted sites with the inbuilt filters, then successo “” to download your prospects to a CSV.

one article per domain filters

You should now have a list of hundreds of sites to potentially guest post for. All that’s left to do is to reach out to them, pitch your topics, and get your first guest post published.

Learn how to do that at scale per our full guide to guest posting.

Broken link building involves three simple steps:

  1. Find a relevant broken link acceso a website;
  2. Create something similar to the broken resource;
  3. Ask anyone linking to the dead resource to instead link to your working resource.

Let’s take a at an example of how this process may work.

Here’s a dead link I found per a post acceso Quicksprout:

dead link quicksprout

Before the page died, it looked like this:

backlinko broken link 2016 wayback machine

If you happened to have a website per the SEO niche, you could take advantage of this by:

  • Publishing your own guide to avoiding Google penalties
  • Reaching out to Neil and suggesting that he swap out the dead link with yours.

I know what you’imperatore thinking:

That seems like a LOT of work for ONE backlink”

True. But here’s a neat hack:

If you paste the URL of the broken page into Ahrefs’ Site Explorer, you’ll see EVERYONE that links to that page. Sopra this case, there are 39 links pointing to the dead resource.

backlinks to broken page

That’s 38 more people who might be willing to swap out their dead link per favor of a working one.

The question is: how do you find relevant broken link building opportunities per the first place?

There are a few ways to do this, but the easiest way by far is to for broken pages acceso competitors’ websites. You can do this using the Best by links report per Ahrefs’ Site Explorer.

Site Explorer > enter a competing domain > Best by links > add a “404 not found” filter

404 not found best by links

Because this report shows the number of referring domains pointing to each broken page, you can quickly and easily find a goldmine of opportunities.

Here’s a CRAZY example I found a while back per the travel niche:

broken link opportunity

, your eyes don’t deceive you; that broken page has 900+ referring domains.

This is an INSANE opportunity for someone per this niche.

Read our full guide to broken link building to learn about three other ways to find broken link building opportunities.

Sometimes people will mention you ora your business without linking to you. Case per point:

ahrefs unlinked

You can see that this website mentions Ahrefs, but they don’t link to us (i.e., the word “Ahrefs” isn’t a clickable link.)

This happens more often than you might imagine. Here’s another one:

ahrefs content explorer unlinked

This time it’s a mention of Ahrefs’ Content Explorer that’s gone unlinked.

What has this got to do with link building?

With such mentions, you’imperatore already halfway towards earning a link.

Think about it: You know that the author is familiar with your business because they’ve already mentioned you. So you have the perfect excuse to reach out and, hopefully, convince them to convert that mention into a link.

But how do you find relevant unlinked mentions per the first place?

There are a few different ways, but the easiest way is to use Ahrefs’ Content Explorer.

Remember that Content Explorer searches almost ONE BILLION web pages for mentions of any word ora phrase. This is super‐useful for finding web pages related to a particular topic, but you can also use it to find mentions of your brand across the web, like so:

ahrefs brand search content explorer

Right chiuso the bat, we’ve found over 17 THOUSAND web pages mentioning “Ahrefs.”

But there’s a problem: We have voto negativo clue whether these are linked ora unlinked mentions.

To find that out, we’d have to all these web pages and somehow check that each of them link to That can be a time‐consuming process, so I’m not going to go into that here.

Instead, I’m going to show you a hack for finding high‐priority unlinked mentions per seconds.

First, select the “one article di domain” filter per Content Explorer.

one article per domain

That restricts the search results so that you only see one web page from each website.

Next, use the “highlight unlinked domains” feature to highlight all websites that have never linked to you, like so:

highlight unlinked domains

Finally, ONLY the highlighted web pages by hitting “” and checking the “only highlight unlinked domains” box.

only highlight unlinked domains

You now have a neat list of web pages containing unlinked mentions to pursue at your leisure.

Read our full guide to finding and pursuing unlinked mentions to learn about five other ways to find such opportunities.


Do you want to build links to your ecommerce product ora category pages?

These are notoriously difficult to get.

Most people tend to link to your homepage because it’s easier for them to do so.

But what if, say, you’imperatore Airbnb, and someone links to your homepage per a blog post where they talk about their trip to London. Well, it’d make much more sense for them to link to your category page for London‐based homes to rent, right? Definitely.

With that per mind, here’s a twist acceso the unlinked mentions strategy for getting links to these pages: link moves.

You can use Ahrefs’ Site Explorer to find existing linked mentions to your homepage that would be better suited to another page. Here’s one such example:

airbnb link

This link to the Airbnb homepage comes from a blog post about moving to London. Furthermore, the context of the link is all about finding accommodation per London modo Airbnb.

Because it would make more sense for this link to point to the London category page, it may be worth reaching out and requesting a link move. By that, I mean asking very kindly if they’d be willing to swap out that homepage link per favor of a link to the category page.

Why should they do this? Relevance.

Those who are likely to click that link will almost certainly prefer to go to the London properties page over the homepage.

Links are difficult to build. There are voto negativo two ways about it.

But did you know that you’imperatore probably losing backlinks all the time? Here are all the lost backlinks to (from unique referring domains) over the past seven days ala:

lost referring domains

Wow. It looks like we’imperatore by 180 links.

Of course, you can counteract this natural process by building a consistent stream of new links. However, reclaiming lost links is often much easier than building new ones from scratch.

But why are links lost per the first place?

Here are two common reasons:

  1. The link was removed from the linking page;
  2. The linking page ceased to exist.


These are not the only two reasons that links can be lost.

If the link got removed from the linking page, it probably happened for a reason. Perhaps the author updated ora revamped the content and your link got removed as a byproduct of that process?

How can you find out when links are lost for this reason?

Check the Lost backlinks report per Ahrefs’ Site Explorer and for links with the “link removed” tag.

Site Explorer > enter your domain > Backlinks > Lost > for instances of “link removed”

thehoth link removed


It’s also worth adding filters for followed links, and sorting the results by URL Rating (UR).

The link per the example above was removed because the content was rewritten.

Should you find this to be the reason for the link loss, see if there’s an appropriate place for your link per the new content. If so, reach out and kindly suggest that they add the link back. Just don’t be pushy.

NOTE. Links can get removed for other reasons. It’s vital that you understand those reasons and handle things accordingly. Learn more about that per our full guide to link reclamation.

But what about links that are lost because the linking page voto negativo longer exists?

gotch seo 404

Most of the time, this happens because the author chose to delete the page (and your link along with it). Unfortunately, there’s not a lot you can do about that.

Sometimes, however, pages get deleted by mistake.

If you suspect this to be the case, reach out to the site owner and let them know. They will usually reinstate the page (and your link) should they learn about such an issue.

Furthermore, this is a helpful thing to do and can be the catalyst to a great relationship—a relationship that may lead to more links further the line.

6. Paid promotion for “linkable assets”

Linkable assets are pieces of content that deserve links: tools, calculators, per‐depth and informative blog posts, tutorials, infographics, etc.

Here’s one of my favorite infographics about, well, “infographics”:

If you recall what I said during the outreach section, getting links to this type of content is all about letting the right people know that it exists. Do that, and they might link to it.

With outreach, however, you’imperatore cherry‐picking your targets. You’imperatore a sniper.

But there’s another way to get your content per front of your target audience: Pay to promote it using Facebook ads ora a similar PPC ad (e.g., Google AdWords, Pinterest Ads, etc.)

You don’t have to spend a lot. $50-$100 will often suffice. If your content resonates with your chosen audience, a small percentage of them will surely link to it. This might be from their website, a niche riunione, a comment acceso another blog, a discussion board, ora elsewhere.

You may have seen us doing this for some of our blog posts acceso Facebook.

facebook ahrefs ad

Do we do this just for links? . We don’t do it for links at all—we simply like to get our blog posts per front of as many people as possible.

But there’s voto negativo doubt that this practice helps with our link building efforts.

How do we know? Because we have TONS of links to our blog, most of which came about naturally as a result of people seeing our content.

Take our post about keyword cannibalization, for example. It has 216 backlinks from 51 referring domains.

kw cannibalization post

We did ZERO outreach for this post. We only promoted it modo our newsletter and with Facebook ads, meaning that all these backlinks came about because the right audience saw this asset.

7. Steal links from inferior web pages

Have you ever che across a piece of content, checked it out per Ahrefs’ Site Explorer, and been blown away by the amount of links it had?

I know I have. Check out this rather pointless, 200‐word guide to the trottola diet, for example:

paleo diet page

309 backlinks from 63 referring domains. Madness.

Now let’s imagine for a moment that you have a superior, 5000‐word beast of a guide to the trottola diet acceso your site. Ask yourself: why would someone link to that 200‐word guide over yours?

Answer: Because they probably don’t know that a better piece of content exists.

Solution: Introduce them to your content and ask them to link to you instead.

But how exactly do you do this?

Well, first, you need to find one ora more inferior pieces of content from which you can steal links.

The easiest way to do this is to search for a topic per Content Explorer and filter for pages that have a good number of links.

Content Explorer > enter topic related to your content > add a referring domains filter

content explorer paleo

Here’s one that fits the bill:

paleo diet page content explorer

You’d then need to check the links to this page by pasting it into Ahrefs’ Site Explorer and checking the Backlinks report.

for links that might make sense to steal. By that, I mean those where a link to your page would genuinely be more valuable.

Here’s an example:

paleo diet link

There’s voto negativo doubt per my mind that a link to an per‐depth trottola diet guide would be a valuable replacement here.

Pretty straightforward, right? You can also rinse and repeat this process for more inferior pages.

But before I wrap this tactic up, it’s worth mentioning that you’imperatore not limited to content ora so‐called “linkable assets” when doing this. Nor do you always have to “steal” links—you can replicate them.

For example, if you have an ecommerce store that sells a specific thing, your rete is to get featured per relevant places, including places where similar ecommerce stores are featured. So why not at the backlinks to other similar ecommerce stores and find replicable links?

Read our full guide to finding and replicating competitors backlinks to learn how to do this.

8. Content repurposing & syndication

Not all link building tactics are outreach‐based.

It’s possible to build some links by merely submitting content to appropriate places such as infographic directories, televisione‐sharing sites, and so forth.

But your content needs to be per an appropriate format to be able to do that.

This is where content repurposing comes per.

Let’s say that you have an AMAZING interactive infographic. You’ve poured your heart and soul into creating it, and you wish it had a wider audience. Well, why not repurpose that content into a different format, such as an infographic ora televisione? Then can submit that content to infographic ora televisione‐sharing websites.

This is exactly what the smart folks at Neomam did with the interactive “13 reasons why your brain craves infographics” piece that I showed you earlier.

Here it is per static infographic format…

… and per televisione format:

This resulted per some additional links, like so:

youtube link 13 reasons

Are these the most powerful links ever?

, but such links are still worth having, especially as repurposing content like this is often quite easy to do.

Furthermore, doing so results per the exposure of your content to a broader audience. This is good because more eyeballs = more links.

But content repurposing isn’t the only way to get some quick and easy links.

You can also syndicate your content to other third‐trattenimento websites.

What does this mean? It means that when you publish a blog post, for example, other relevant sites will pick it up and post it alongside a link back to the source. Some sites republish the full thing, whereas others publish an excerpt and link to the full post acceso your site.

Here’s a syndicated version of our recent local SEO guide acceso another site:

syndication ahrefs example

Read our full guide to content syndication to learn precisely how to do this.

9. Community site link building

Most people acceso building ONLY the highest quality links.

This is a good thing, acceso the whole. But let me ask you a question: do you think that a genuinely natural backlink profile consists of only followed, editorial links from high DR websites?

Of course not. That’s why it’s important to build links from other sources too.

Forums, message boards, Reddit, Quora, etc—these are all good places to market your website and, per the process, build some relevant links to diversify your backlink profile.

This is something we do at Ahrefs.

ahrefs quora

Now, I know what most of you are thinking: “Josh, aren’t such links nofollowed?”

Yes, a lot of them are, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. All natural backlink profiles have a mixture of followed and “nofollowed” links. Furthermore, sites like Reddit sometimes remove the “nofollow” attribute acceso links within popular threads.

Leaving thoughtful blog comments is another good way to build a few extra links.

Blog comments are almost always “nofollow” links. However, leaving comments acceso relevant and popular blog posts will help get your content per front of more people. This process can lead to more links, as a percentage of people who view your content will inevitably link to it.

How do you find good blog posts acceso which to comment?

Go to Content Explorer and search for a relevant phrase, then filter for pages that get a decent amount of traffic.

link building content explorer traffic

Check out some of the results and see if they allow blog comments.

If they do, consider leaving an insightful comment that will attract the attention of readers and hopefully, prompt them to check out your website.

Leaving blog comments will also inevitably attract the attention of the blog owner and further your relationship with them. This increases the chance of them mentioning and linking to you per their future blog posts.

You can use a similar trick with sites like Quora. Identify relevant threads that get lots of traffic using Site Explorer.

Site Explorer > enter > Culmine pages > enter a relevant bed 2.

quora top pages

This will show you relevant pages with the most traffic. Check them out. If they’imperatore still allowing new answers, get involved per the conversation.

Wait… can’t I just buy links?

Like everything per life, links can be bought.

However, Google has made it quite clear that this practice is against their guidelines. Here’s an excerpt from said guidelines:

Buying links ora participating per link schemes per order to manipulate PageRank is a violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines.

So we do not recommend buying links. It’s risky, and you may receive a penalty should Google catch you.

But how much do links cost anyway?

That’s something we wondered ourselves, which is why we reached out to 630 blogs and asked them to sell us a link.

$361.44 was the average price.

Do all links cost that much? Not at all. Some bloggers quoted us around $30-$50, whereas others quoted THOUSANDS. These were all quotes for links to be added to existing posts, ora for paid guest posts—both of which are common ways to buy links.

PBNs (Private Blog Networks) are also popular.

These are essentially nothing more than networks of sites owned by the same person, which are then used to build links to a “money” site. Importantly, however, PBNs are made to as though the same person does not own them. PBN owners work to fool Google into thinking that these are legitimate sites that just so happened to link to the same site.

Google doesn’t like PBNs. They have been known to target sites using them per the past.

pbn penalty

The bottom line? Well, I’m sure some black‐hat SEOs will disagree with us here, but we believe it’s more cost effective to build links per legitimate ways (e.g., outreach) than to build a PBN ora buy links.

That’s what we recommend you do. ?

Final Thoughts

Link building isn’t rocket science. The tactics I shared above will work for all websites. You just need to execute them.

Will some work tactics better for some sites than others? Of course. Your job is to each tactic and see what works best for you. At which point, you can work acceso scaling your efforts to build more links with less effort.
