Backlinks are the lifeblood of higher Google rankings. Once you start getting them, organic traffic often grows together.

But not all backlinks are created equal. A lot of sites start off by building low quality backlinks. While they may move the needle initially, they can be dangerous because they can literally wipe your site off of Google.

So, you’ll have to learn how to build high-quality backlinks to your site. While these can vary from niche to niche and even from page to page, there are a few tried and tested tactics that can work for anyone with minimal experience.

They are:
► Links from organizations, communities or clubs that you’re already part of
► Guest blogging
► Podcast interviews
► Outreach

You’ll learn how to execute each tactic in the video.

    Hi Sam, how do you recommend using HARO as an agency? Be upfront about being a marketing agency on your profile and simply reply to emails with your clients quotes? Many thanks for the great advice in all your videos!

      Some agencies respond as the client, whereas other people are more upfront. No hard rules on what to do.
