Keyword and network research

Before starting your link building campaign, we will identify which landing pages generate the most conversions and match priority keywords to each. This ensures we improve your search results where it matters and deliver the optimal profitability. We also identify top platforms where we can place your link content. This is through competitor backlink analysis, our existing network of contacts and by reaching out to journalists in your industry.

Network research

To secure backlinks for your site in a natural way, our experts will first use data to understand which websites are in your niche and therefore which are the most relevant to you. Our strategies are targeted and high quality.

Build a collaborative network

We don’t just stop at securing a one-time collaboration, we build long-lasting professional relationships between these websites and your business. This allows you to continue collaborating and building your audience.

Access our network

Through our years of experience in  manual link building in the UK and internationally, we have built an extremely strong collaborative network that we can tap into at any time. As our client, you would have full access to this.

Target keywords that convert

Our link building strategy starts with keyword selection. We target each piece of content to a specific keyword to maximise the benefit and increase referral traffic, ensuring we use the optimal mix of anchor texts and keywords for Google.

Discover your competitors' keywords

Articles linking to you can increase your keyword reach. We identify keywords missing from your site by analysing your competitors and looking for the keyword gap. We craft articles on these subjects, increasing the number of keywords your marketing campaign can target.

Resource pages

People love to link to helpful, in-depth pages. “How to” guides and listicles have been shown to generate the most evergreen organic backlinks and social media shares. We help identify then create content which has the most chance of going viral.

Some of the tools we will use

Manual link building outreach

You may have received badly written emails offering thousands of sites where you can place guest posts. The problem with such lists is 99% of the sites will have zero organic traffic, site errors, or no trust value. Instead of building backlinks from such lists, we offer manual guest blogging and thought leadership contributions in the UK and internationally. We approach high authority sites in your niche. This ensures your links are relevant, reputable and respected.

Genuine outreach

First we build a list of high-quality, relevant target sites. Our team then uses software and A/B-tested outreach methods to secure legitimate collaborations with top publications. This allows you to reach audiences previously inaccessible to you.

Relevant backlinks

Through a sophisticated outreach program, we arrange for links to be placed on highly relevant, industry specific sites. These are high-profile sites in your niche and those linking to your top ranking competitors.

Feature in places your target audience visit

Our team are excellent at negotiating placements in top publications and finding opportunities to be featured in places ordinarily unattainable. These are places where your target audience consumes content and are entering the buying cycle.

High authority sites

To ensure links offer maximum benefit, we use multiple quality criteria – Domain Authority (DA), TrustFlow (TF), organic traffic, recent changes in traffic, quality of content and quality of design. We filter out the majority of sites, leaving you with the best.

Build a strong domain that ranks high

Thanks to our off-site SEO, you will have a stronger domain that ranks higher for your target keywords. This will drive more of the traffic that’s important to you as we take a highly targeted approach in comparison to the standard ‘shotgun’ approach.

Full transparency

At MeasureMinds, we believe in providing full transparency. All content will be sent to you for approval before being published. Each month we will send you a spreadsheet of published links, their quality criteria, and your ranking for pre-agreed keywords.
