Not everyone sees the validity or importance of link building and is eager to get crackin’. For this reason, we commend your enthusiasm. Before you get carried away by the gusts of gusto, however, it’s important to understand a few things.
- It’s not easy to earn links naturally. That’s because quality content is rare and difficult to generate. Quality content, you see, serves a purpose and actually deserves links. It essentially answers a question and does so in a unique way.
- When you sign up for the task of manually link building, prepare to encounter hours of tedious work. You have to ensure that each website you’re attempting to acquire a link from actually has a decent page authority. Then you have to reach out to the webmasters individually and ask them to cooperate.
So wait, we’re saying you have to write emails to individual webmasters? Yep. We are. *Crickets*. It’s hard to figure out where to start sometimes, but the best way to just jump in and do it. We’ve compiled a starting point/idea generator for you. It’s not the solution to your problems, but it will give you an idea of what kinds of sites you should be reaching out to.
