How do I find relevant outreach for backlink without any paid SEO tool?
How do I find relevant outreach for backlink without any paid SEO tool? And finally how to choose which one should I link to?
Use the Google search bar to start looking for websites that you would like to link to you. Then start emailing them and asking how much they charge for link.
First, you need to identify a list of target keywords in your niche. This is very important if you want to see relevant sites in your results. Then, expand it using Google's own related searches at the bottom of the Search Engine Result Page (SERP) or the suggestions it provides in the search bar. There are also tools like keyword everywhere that can help you with this.
After that, identify what kind of link you want. Are you shooting for a resource page backlink? A link insert? A guest post perhaps? It's good to know this beforehand so your prospecting is focused. Of course, if you see sites in your results that might offer a different kind of backlink you're looking for, you should still take note of those. I usually just put a note in my sheet.
Once you have your keywords and have identified what kind of backlink you want to pursue first, use Google's advance search strings per keyword to gather sites to get backlinks from.
As for how to choose the sites, that's entirely up to you and what you plan to use to convince them to link to you. Typically, you want to reach out to sites that are relevant to establish authority. You don't want sites that are about fighting whilst you're in gardening. It'll look unnatural. Avoid sites that looked spammy or site that is part of a Private Blog Network (PBN). You also don't want to waste your chances at higher Domain Authority (DA) (a Moz rank) sites if you're unsure how to get links from them yet. You don't want to be blacklisted. On the other hand, you don't want to waste your time on sites with DA below 10 as well, especially if their estimated traffic has taken a hit recently or has been going down (I only know how to check this using paid tools like Ahrefs or SEMrush).
Once you have a list of vetted sites, then it's time you get their contact info. Use advance search strings again or tools that are either free or offer a free trial/free look-up. If you can't find their contact info, try reaching out via their contact form. If none, tough luck. You just spent all that time prospecting and vetting with nothing to show for it. C'est La Vie
Thanks a lot!!
No worries. Hope you get the job! I know other people have mentioned that you might not be qualified for the position. They might be true. But it's also true that you might catch up quickly, do well in your assignment, and land the job. What's important is you keep learning. You miss all the shots you don't take.
Thank you so much for the kind words. It means a lot.
