What is Link Building?

Link building services are ideal if you want high-quality backlinks to help rank higher in search engines, but are too busy to build them yourself. Let's face it; building backlinks is a time-consuming yet essential task for search engine optimisation.

Earning backlinks from authorative sites

The best link building services Australia offers should focus on earning backlinks from authoritative sites that people trust and respect.

Links should be related to your site, and they should be natural. In other words, the agency should NOT buy them. Any agency worth their salt knows that buying links is a black hat SEO tactic and can result in penalties from Google.

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious to learn more? Here are some of the most common questions we hear day to day.

How important is link building for ranking?

Are you wondering, why should I focus on link building for my website? Put it this way – backlinks are a vital part of Google's algorithm. Google uses more than 200 factors to rank your site, and it’s no secret that backlinks are a top ranking factor. Just check the top-ranking pages for your keyword, and you'll see they have a good number of quality backlinks. So, if you want to achieve high visibility and rankings in search engines, link building is an essential tactic.

So, what exactly is a backlink? Backlinks are when one website links to another. Google counts this as a positive vote when working out where to rank your site in search results. When it comes to the crunch, Google exists to provide searchers with useful, valuable results. Every high quality, relevant backlink shows Google that your content is valuable, trustworthy and shareable. But here’s the thing: it’s not the number of links you have, but the quality, relevance and variety of backlinks that really counts.

Focus on link building for your site and you can dramatically increase your domain authority, improve search engine rankings, enhance your online brand, and attract relevant traffic from the sites linking to you.

With a killer link building strategy, you can make sure your link is right there for the kind of people who will see real value in your site, products and services. We’re not necessarily talking about big audiences, but a focused audience who are more likely to convert.

Link building also helps you create a positive brand image online. Become a pinnacle of knowledge in your industry with informative and authoritative content that people want to share.

What are the most effective link building methods?

The most effective link building methods are the ones that focus on generating high-quality backlinks that are authoritative and relevant. This demands a personalised strategy that fits your business goals and audience – not a cookie-cutter approach.

Here at Online Marketing Gurus, we create a solid link building strategy by first doing a digital audit. We get to know your online marketing goals, understand your current link profile, and look at your competitors’ link profiles. This reveals the kinds of link categories we should be shooting for, such as influencer blogs, brand mentions, local citations, sponsorships, industry sites, and more. Then we tailor a link building strategy that’s sustainable and organic.

There are lots of effective link building methods we might employ. The first and most important technique is content marketing. High quality content gets you noticed by the right people, instils trust and offers value. So, if you are consistently creating quality content from day one, you will acquire natural links. Then there are proactive outreach methods. For example, you can look for broken links on other high authority sites and offer them your link as a replacement. Or you can find social media influencers and bloggers who will be interested in your content.

The fact is building links isn’t fast or easy. It takes TIME and EFFORT. One thing you will never find OMG (or any other reputable agency) doing is buying links. Google penalises sites they found to buy or sell links – that’s what Google’s Penguin update targeted. Buying links actually violates Google's guidelines: "Buying or selling links that pass PageRank can dilute the quality of search results. Participating in link schemes violates Google's Webmaster Guidelines and can negatively impact a site's ranking in search results."

How much does link building cost?

It depends. The best way to approach link building is as an essential part of a comprehensive SEO strategy. At OMG, we always quote SEO strategies according to how competitive your industry is and your specific business goals. As with all things in SEO, you get what you pay for. So be careful with agencies who offer cheap link building services – there’s a good chance they are cutting corners with black hat SEO tricks. And that will only wind up costing you a LOT more in the long term.

While we can’t give you a price for link building packages, we can tell how much to invest in your SEO strategy to unlock explosive revenue growth – contact us for your free 30-minute strategy call and 6-month multichannel growth plan. Our gurus will ask the right questions to find what you want to achieve and provide you with a roadmap and timelines to get there. Best of all, your strategy session is completely FREE.

What are the best tools for link building?

There are lots of tools designed for link building. Most importantly, you need to set up your website on Google Search Console. There are some incredible SEO tools on Search Console, with one of them being the ability to track your links to site. In other words, you can see the number of indexed links Google find pointing to your site.You can also use the Search Console to check the quality of backlinks and ensure they are high quality and relevant.

Outside of Google, one of the best tools is Ahrefs. In fact, if a link building consultant could only invest in one link building tool, it would be Ahrefs.Think of this as the world’s largest backlink index, which makes ita stellar tool for backlink research. It allows you to review the links pointing back to your site or a competitor’s site. Use this information to feed into your content strategy and link building efforts, as you can see what type of content is attracting links for competitors.

Another tool worth exploring is Moz Link Explorer. This lets you reverse engineer your competitor’s backlinks to see how they did it. Found an irrelevant or bad link? Create a disavow file in seconds using Disavow.it.

When it comes to creating great content and outreach, there are countless tools you can use. One of our favourites is BuzzSumo. It makes it easy to create content that people want to link to, and you can find influencers in your niche.

Why is OMG the best link building company?

There are heaps of reasons we’re the best link building company. But the most important one is this: we see the big picture. In other words, we don’t just generate links from any old site. We look at how link building fits into your overall SEO campaign and business objectives.
