Professional Link Building Services

Link Building is one of the most important SEO strategies to attract visitors to your site. Link building should be the core of any online marketing campaign. Once you create a site that you feel visitors are looking for and have written keyword rich content, link building is necessary so other sites and users can find what you have to offer. Furthermore, Google and other search engines are known to trust websites with a high number of quality incoming links counting as ‘votes’ from other websites.

Depending on the business niche, a webmaster may need to obtain hundreds or thousands of links to make their website shoot up to Google’s top spot. This is not an easy job, nor can it be done overnight, however it is manageable. Many of your competitors have 100’s of backlinks (if not 1,000’s) securing their top search engine rankings. SEO by the Hour provides link building services that can give you immediate results and help your site catch up with the competition that is already enjoying top position revenues.

Why Link Building?

Not only do you need powerful and thoughtful content, you need links from other sites to prove to the engines that your websites is worth attracting visitors. WHO gives you the links and WHY they give you the links are the keys to a successful link building campaign. To rank well on search engines, you need backlinks (links that when clicked on lead back to your site). Backlinks are considered votes in the search engine bots’ eyes. Over time, the search engines had to find ways to filter through millions of sites with content relevant to users’ search queries. How do they choose which site should be #1? Most of the time, the #1 site is the site with the most industry related ‘votes’ (backlinks). Other sites must vote for you. This is why link building is extremely important. It’s a popularity contest. Besides having the best content, you need other sites to verify that by linking to your site. Google assumes if website ‘b’ and ‘c’ both have links pointing to website ‘a’, then website ‘a’ must be a reputable site that has other websites finding use in its content. After all, why else would another website/webmaster link to it? With all the recent algorithm updates and changes in link acquisition, it’s important to hire a link building expert to help you achieve top results.

A successful SEO link building campaign depends on two overall factors: the total number of links you have, and more importantly, the quality of each particular link.

Guest Authoring and Blogging

Guest blogging has a variety of benefits in both SEO and in online promotions. SEO-wise, it can help with link building and Promotion-wise, it can serve as another way to obtain target visitors.

Guest Blogging and SEO

Originally getting links from any kind of a website helped with your SEO rankings, then only relevant links, then only high PR relevant links, then high Alexa & high PR links, then all of the above plus relevance and/or from topically related domains. Currently highly relevant links from sites that are obviously human edited and supported by other humans are the best links to get. Guest blogging happens to be the most effective and popular way to obtain these highly relevant links. Getting a link from a related blog that has a list of subscribers helps for a variety of reasons.

  1. They show that someone in your niche vouches for you
  2. They show that someone with a reputation vouches for you
  3. They show that someone that has built trust vouches for you

These are the simple reasons why high subscribed niche blog links help with SEO.

Guest Authoring and Promotion

Obtaining links from blogs provides many benefits to your online marketing initiatives. When you are recognized by bloggers in your niche, getting blogged about can almost compare to sending out an email blast. All of a sudden you notice a spike in traffic coming from readers, emails, and the blog itself. To top it off, the visitors are people already interested in your niche. If your website and content are legit or buzz worthy, these visitors will repost something about your company to their blog as well, or even Google Plus, tweet or share your website on Facebook and other social media websites. Many top bloggers, new sites and other websites check other bloggers’ blogs routinely to see what they are talking about. Getting mentioned on one of these blogs can go a long way (viral).

We can help you become a guest blogging pro, or guest author for you. We do everything from finding the top bloggers in your niche, sending emails and corresponding with them, to actually writing content for those sites and encouraging readers to share the posts, which contains links back to your website.
