Link Building for SEO: How to Get POWERFUL Backlinks in 2020

– Today you are learning exactly how to create powerful backlinks to your site. In fact, I’ve used the strategy I’m about to show you to get links from sites like

  • Forbes,
  • TechCrunch,
  • Inc.,
  • entrepreneurship,

and more. I’m Brian Dean, founder of Backlink. Today I will show you some proven link building strategies and some advanced techniques I have never heard of anyone else. Keep watching.



We have a lot to cover in today’s article  so let’s get started. I started my first blog back in 2010. Behind it, the spammy black hat link building was all the rage. In fact, my go-to strategy was things like article directories and Link Ahram. Link Pyramid? That sounds amazing. These black hat contacts are working fine until Google releases its penguin update. This update eliminates 98% of my Google traffic overnight. That’s when I decided to join the white hat SEO.

Thanks to the White Hat Link building strategies I’m going to share with you, my organic traffic has grown like a rocket ship. I also started

  • rating competitive keywords like
  •  video SEO,
  • keyword research,
  • on-page SEO,

and more. Without further adieu, let’s get things done with strategy number one,

Link Roundup.

Link Roundup. Just imagine if people post blog posts for the sole purpose of linking to standard content, the type of quality content you already post on your site. That would be great, right? Fortunately for us, this is a real thing and they are called

link roundups.

link roundups. Link is an example of a linkup. What exactly is Link Roundup? Link roundups are

daily, weekly, or monthly blog posts that link to and link to the content you want.

For example, this is the link I made recently with a roundup. Now let’s end the exact process I used to get this link. First, you need to find the link roundup in your industry. Here are some search strings that work really well. Just pop these search wires into Google and you should do a lot of high quality rotation. Once you find the link that looks like a good fit, it’s time to get your content ready. This is an email script I personally use. You want to send the script to the person who runs the roundup. As you can see, this script is not strict or irrelevant. I just let this person know that my content is there and gently suggest that they join their


next cycle. If your post is a good fit for this person’s rotation, you will find a good link. That’s it.With that, it is time for our second strategy and

step 1 .Broken Link Building.

Broken Link Building. Broken Link Building is one among my all-time favorite link building strategies. Why? You see, when most of the people create links, they send generic pictures that provide zero price. am i able to have a link? many thanks . send it. Here’s a step-by-step process. First, inspect my links in Google Chrome.

Check Broken Link Building.

Check My Links is a free Google Chrome extension that looks for broken links on any page. I’ll show you how to use this tool in a minute. But for now, let’s move on to number two.

step 2. Find a site

Find a site from which you want to get a link. You probably already have some sites in mind. If not, just Google’s keywords related to your industry. The sites that show up in search results are great sites for getting backlinks.

For example, last year I wanted to make links to this list of SEO tools. I googled things like SEO checklists and SEO article.

step 3. check for broken links.

Next, it’s time to check for broken links. To do so, just visit some of the pages you have just visited on this site and run the CheckLink extension. This will show all broken links on this page. Finally,


step 4. tell the site owner

tell the site owner about their broken link and alternatively offer your content.

For example, once I find a broken link on someone’s site, I send them this email. Note how personal my email is. The more you personalize your email, the more links you will get . Anyway, once they reply to my message, I send them the URL of the broken link, I also pitch my SEO tools post as a replacement for the dead link. Because I added the worth first, then invite something reciprocally , people were happy to link to me. it is time for strategy number three,

to link to the podcast. a couple of months ago, i used to be finding out where a distinct segment site from my niche got their backlinks and that i noticed that an outsized portion of their backlinks came from getting to the podcast. So i made a decision to become more and more a guest on podcasts. In fact, I appeared on over 50 podcasts within the next year and 1/2. Not only did these podcasts send me some serious traffic, they also resulted in plenty of top quality backlinks. Develop our branded strategy, and move along side our next technology


Modes. A few years ago, I was looking for some productivity tips and I found this post by Marilyn Mann. In this post, Merlin created something called Inbox Zero, a productivity approach where you use your inbox as your list. But it didn’t catch my attention. What was surprising to me was that this simple idea produced over 5000 backlinks. When I looked at these backlinks I saw a pattern. Most people link to this page because it outlines a strategy with a unique name, Inbox Zero. That’s when I decided I would try to name my strategies too. Once I talked about strategy on my blog, I called it Flakbos technique. Where did it go? This post where I first mentioned the Flakbos technique has been associated more than 9,000 times. If you look at these contacts, 90% of them are because I gave my strategy a unique branded name.


reporters and bloggers.

Well, go ahead with strategy number five, be a resource for reporters and bloggers. This is the deal. Fortunately, it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Thanks to a free service called Harrow, it’s very proud. Like a dating site for public relations. Harrow connects bloggers and journalists with people who need to connect with people who want links and press mentions.



I used HARO to create links to meta news sites like To be clear, this strategy works and it is not always easy. But in my experience, this is one of the best ways to build quality backlinks. With that, let’s jump into the step-by-step process.

First, register as the source.

First, register as the source. Once signed, you will receive three emails a day from reporters looking for such sources. When you find an application that seems a good fit, send them your belt.

For example, a while ago, I saw Harrow’s request from someone who wanted to know the difference between graphic design and web design. So I submitted this pitch and I got this sweet link from, which is an authentic edo domain. Not bad.


Next, we have strategy number six, pre-outreach. A while ago, a reader of mine, Emil, was getting ready to publish this epic content. But for that to happen, it will need to build relationships. So Emil decided to promote his post even before it was published. This is known as


pre-outreach. This is how it has fallen down. First, Emal found blogs that wrote about employee well-being and sent them this message. Since he didn’t approve of the link, most of the people he talked to were happy to hear him. Then once the email was posted live, he sent a link to everyone who replied to his first email. And this resulted in a backlink to a group of community shares and a good perspective.

.edu resources page.

With that, it’s time for link building of the Strategy Seven, .edu resources page. It’s no secret that links to edo websites are so powerful. The question is, do you really want to connect university sites with you? How do you get Here’s how it works. Most universities have resource pages where they link to content that can help their students and teachers.Here’s an example of a resource page that links to content about nutrition & supplements.

For example, suppose you have a nutrition website. First, you want to find the resource pages as I just showed you. To do this,

pop the search string into Google. Then it’s up to you to see if any piece of your content is appropriate for this page. Finally, email the person who runs this resource page to this proven script. Now keep that in mind. This is bad news. The good news is that even one or two of these links can make a big difference to your Google ranking.

For example, I recently used this strategy to get a link to this resource page on the University of Michigan website. This single link made a significant dentin to my organic traffic. If you think it’s cool, wait until you see


how strategy number eight is the dynamic guy. The walking human way is simple. First, find webpages, resources, or businesses that are out of date, just renamed, or recently changed names. Then look for sites that are still linked to these old resources. Finally, tell people that they are linking to something that is outdated. A while ago, I read that a website for a major SEO agency suddenly shut down. This meant that they had a ton of pages on their sites that were no longer working, pages that many people are still connecting to. In particular, I found that their site had an infographic about SEO no longer working, which was correct because I had just published my SEO.


Focusing infographic.Nice.Th was the first step. Next, I had to see who actually connected to this infographic. So I dismissed one of the competitors and pulled out all their links. Finally, I emailed everyone who is still affiliated with this infographic. I told them that the picture was no longer working. I also told them that my infographic would make a great alternative to blue glass. As you can see, people were more than happy to link to me. When it comes to infographics, it’s time for our last link building strategy, Geography. Last year,

BackLink reader

BackLink reader Matt Laurie had a problem. Matt runs an e-commerce site yellow octopus in Australia that sells gifts and realizes something quickly, making links to e-commerce sites really difficult. However, who wants to link to a site that contains 100% of product and category pages? what did he do?


First, Matt collected an epic piece of content, the ultimate guide to Australian descent. This guide has everything that anyone in Australia wants to know about Australia. Now, of course, Matt didn’t just sit back and wait for the links to come in. It promoted its content with email access. Since Matt reached out to the right people and sent them personalized emails, some people even offered to contact his leader. All these backlinks promote Matt’s keyword ranking about what his customers search for the Australian gin every day. Even its contents appear in the most modest pieces. Now before we close this article , let me show you a nice bonus tip, looking for guest posting opportunities with Google Images. it’s fine. I said guest posting. Many people now say that when it comes to creating links, guest posting ends. But is that true? Not really. In fact, when you’re just getting started, guest posting is a great way to link to your site.

For example, when I first started backlinks, I posted like crazy to guests.I wrote over 50 guest posts & inter views in about a year. And the links posted by the guests gave my organic traffic an early boost. That said, I was very strategic about things. I made sure to write only guest posts for standard sites in my niche. So if you run a site about Paleo Diet and write a guest post for a site about iPhones, it will look like spam. But when you write mind-blowing guest posts for standard sites in your industry, these links help.


The question is,

how do you find sites on the guest post?

Google Images. Here’s a step-by-step process. First find someone in your niche who writes a lot of guest posts. Second, get the URL of the headshot that they use in their author bio. Finally, pop this URL in Google Reverse Image Search. And at the peak, you find a list of places that the guests presented to you on a silver platter. Very cool. There you have it,
