Safest Link Building Technique in 2018?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by digitalraro, Jan 17, 2018.

    Hello all,

    I used to frequent the forum -- day and night -- about 6-7 years ago, but I have been away for a while as I was working on my business. The business is now established and has built some authority very organically -- all the links were actually created naturally, through time.

    I'm now looking to actually create some new links, but as you can understand I'm very hesitant due to the crystal clean profile we've kept for several years, and where any new links may stick out to the big G. I may be overthinking it, but at the very least I want to be super cautious.
    SEMrush
    What technique would you recommend based on the above? I'm leaning towards guest posting on quality sites, but wanted to see if there is anything else I should be looking into. On the same note, if guest posting is the way to go, then any advice on finding quality sites that would accept posts (paid or free)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Really, the only 'safe' linkbuilding technique is to entice others to link to your content. Some examples are linkbait, really good content, or similar.

    Every other method brings with it some risk. However, the most damaging thing is to have a spammy looking website. Google appears to be headed toward not telling us what we may be doing wrong. My answer is, everything in moderation is (usually) ok.

    The thing that you should avoid like the plague are automated tools that create thousands of "backlinks", as they are a dead giveaway that something is up. It may not hurt you, but it will have very short-term benefits, if any.

    Content Marketing is the safe technique to build the natural links. Broken Link Building, Infographics Submissions, and Video Submission will help you.

    Like you said, guest posting is one of the best methods to use to get quality backlinks.
    Go to Google and use footprints like these:
    • NICHE "Guest Posts"
    • NICHE "write for us"
    • NICHE inurl:guest-post
    That should get you started in the right direction.

    I will say guest blogging is the best link building strategy. for reason I can say for every blog we post unique and quality content, that Google likes. From different sites we can get traffic and lastly we wants our diversified backlinks collection means we are getting backlinks from different sites, so this good for SEO.

    Guest post
    Blog commenting
    Make sure that the links you build are natural and that Google doesn't conclude that you're trying to manipulate its search algorithm.

    It's case to case. But mostly, go try and increase your branding awareness in social media pages. Also look for partnership with relevant and authoritative sites.

    It sounds crazy and funny but i saw some sites are getting ranked with traditional mediocre techniques like copied content, huge content and classified postings.

    Article submission, blog submissions and bookmarking are safest seo technique.
