Textbroker Top 5 – Link-Building Strategies
You can ask five different content marketing experts about link building, and you’ll get twelve different strategies. So how can you pinpoint which ones are real, repeatable strategies and which suggestions are happy coincidences for the person who swears by them?
The reality is, it’s difficult to differentiate between link-building gold and the rest, and it’s impossible to just try everything – you could try new ideas every week for years and still not pinpoint the strategy that works for you.

- A strong link profile positions you as a market leader.
- It’s important to do your research – Identify links that show high ROI and replicate them with similar content or with content on similar target sites.
- Know that there are no shortcuts – link building is a long-term strategy.
