I use to gain high quality do-follow backlinks. So if you want this PDF, all you have to do

and comments, I will share the link of this PDF publicly in the description section of
this video. So now let’s go into my laptop screen where
I show you step-by-step on how you can create high quality backlinks for your website and
drive massive traffic. So in this video, I’ll be talking more about
backlinks, how to find backlink opportunities, how to create the backlinks, the best method
and the best strategies. Before I tell you about creating backlinks,
I have to mention one thing. That specifically in India, I have had so
many interns and all the people are talking about “comment backlinks” “forum backlinks”
and “directory submissions”. Honestly guys, these are the worse backlinks
that you can make. These used to work in 2011 and 2012. But especially in 2019, none of these works. And rather than help your website, these will
rather give you a Google penalty. And your website will get zero traffic. So guys, please, please, please stay away
from comment backlinks, or forum backlinks and directory submissions. And all these digital marketing institutes
are still teaching these methods. So guys since you’re my students, I highly
recommend you guys to please stay away from such kinds of backlinks. They’re not worth it. Since this video is part of our affiliate
marketing mastery course, so let’s see how to find the backlink opportunity for the same. So let’s say you are targeting an article
like “best dslr in India”. To find the link opportunities, what you have
to do is first search for your target keyword, let’s say you are searching for “best
dslr in India”. Open the article that Is ranking number one,
copy the URL, open ahrefs, go to site explorer, add the URL here and click on search. Now this will give you all the referring domains
that are pointing to this particular article. Now I am using ahrefs, I know it’s a paid
tool and not every one of you can afford it. I will be showing you the free alternative
as well which is Ubersuggest. So let me first tell you about ahrefs. Now this is the best technique to find backlink
opportunities. Now since these websites are already linking
to your target article, it’s much easier to email them, or contact this website and
ask for a link to your website as well. And also you have to make sure that all the
links that you are building are “do-follow”. You can then export this list as well. Here the anchor text is best DSLR. So it’s a keyword-reach anchor text and
also the domain authority of the website that is referring to this particular article is
also very high, 64 domain rank. So definitely the website, the quality of
the article- so one- whenever you are looking at backlink opportunity, you have to look
at 3 factors. First is the domain rank or the domain authority
(DR). Here the domain rank of this particular website,
which is referring the backlink, you can see it’s 64. It’s very high, that means that the quality
of the backlink will be really high. Secondly you have to look at the relevancy. Here you can see that the article is referring,
that is giving the backlinks as “best digital camera in India”. So definitely the relevancy is also very high
because the backlinks are targeting towards the DSLR –related article, right? So both these metrics are really amazing. The domain rank and the relevancy. The third thing that you have to look at is
the anchor text. Here, the anchor text is “Best DSLR” so
the keyword that is used to make the backlink is the anchor text. Similarly you can check all the other referring
domain as well. Then what you can do is just open the website
here, find the email address. To find the email address, there are multiple
domain extensions. You can also use a Google extension called
“email hunter”. So all you have to do is find the email address
of this website, and send them an email that you are also looking for a- that you have
also written a high quality article and it will really be nice if they can link back
to your article or any other they that they’ll be able to link to your article. And now since this website is a very high
authority website, it’s highly unlikely that they will reply to your email. So guys, one thing I have to tell you is that
creating backlinks is not that easy. Because people think that creating backlinks
is a piece of cake, but then again it’s difficult especially in 2019 when backlink
is becoming more like a price commodity. So don’t think that you’ll be able to
create hundreds of backlinks in few days. It takes a lot of time and patience. Like I use a particular software for sending
all the emails. I use a software called “ninjaoutreach”. Earilier I used to use “BuzzStream” as
well. Both of these are paid tools. These are used to send email scripts to thousands
of people at a time. And if you’re looking for a free alternative,
you can use “GMass”. It’s a free alternative software. With these tools, you can create various campaigns,
various templates. You can create- so like for this campaign
I added 250 blogs in here and I sent them- almost 165 emails were sent. So what it does it- all of you have to do
is add all the website, like here I can see, I can open this particular campaign. So to all these websites here, my email was
sent. And I was asking them for a link one way or
another and few of them replied to me and then my team handles them. They give the follow-up, sometimes people
ask for money, sometimes people ask for guest- sometimes they just give the link just because
the article has a really high quality. So this is the software I use, it’s called
“ninjaoutreach”. I will be creating a very comprehensive tutorial
on how to do this. Apart from that you can also check YouTube
videos on how to use “ninjaoutreach”. But this is a paid tool, you have to invest
some money for that. Second alternative is Buzzstream, it is also
a very nice tool. I used to use it early. This is just an alternative for “ninjaoutreach”. If you are looking for a free alternative
you can use GMass. So guys the best technique is to look at your
competitor’s backlinks and pitch them to get your backlinks. So now the next question in your mind will
what exactly to email to these guys. So I will be creating a repository… so for
that I have created a PDF file where I have added all the email scripts that I am using
to send to my prospects. So to get that PDF file all you have to do
is like the video, and comment on this video “yes, I want it”. And I will share the PDF with you in the description
section of this video. So if you’re not using ahrefs, if you’re
not investing in ahrefs and you still want to build the backlinks so there is good news
for you. So there is this tool called Ubersuggest by
Neil Patel. Just until last night, they were not offering
the backlink opportunity. While I’m recording this video, just today
they have launched the backlinks feature as well. So here I can see that I’ve added this website
called “techradar.com” I can see that for every article, like I’m in the top pages
section, that in every article, how many backlinks that this article have. So it has 225 backlinks. All I have to find the backlink opportunity
is click here on “view all”. So these are all the websites that are referring
to this particular article. Similarly you can do this for any articles
on this particular domain. You can also export these backlink opportunities
to excel sheet and download it for later reference. And it also gives the domain score like the
authority power of the backlink and the link type, whether it’s a textual backlink or
an image backlink etc. And also the anchor text, like what exactly
is the keyword which is used to build the backlinks. So guys, whenever I am building backlinks
for my affiliate website. My process is to first make a list of my competing
domains. People who are already ranking in Google search
engine. Then my next step is to take each domain,
add it to the site explorer in ahrefs and download all the referring domains that are
referring to this particular website. Then I sort them from no-follow to do-follow. Like, I only click the do-follow backlinks
and then I add all those domain names in NinjaOutreach here. And then I start sending them my emails script
of asking for a backlink. Honestly guys, I cannot give you a one best
recipe for building backlinks that will work. Also guys, very important tip. Stay away from websites like Fiverr… when
you’ll be searching for “backlinks” here, they’ll be so many options like “I
will boost your Google ranking with SEO backlinks” and so many other shitty services. Guys, trust me, these will not help your website. Instead of helping your website, they will
give you a Google penalty. So stay away from these services which are
very cheap. Trust me, that is my experience talking, stay
away from such services. Similarly, there’s another website called
“SEOClerks”. They also offer backlinks. Guys, these cheap backlinks are not worth
it. The best kind of backlink is one that is highly
relevant to your article. Which is coming from a high domain website,
and also has a good anchor text. Also there is something called PBN which is
something called “private blog network”. Once you start building the backlinks, sooner
or later you’ll hear about PBN. You can also buy PBN links to get your website
ranked. But this comes under the gray hat area or
rather purely black hat. So what this does is- you might be able to
rank your website for a- maybe a month, a couple of months, so maybe even for a year. But then again, it depends on the luck. If a new Google update comes up and your PBN
is blacklisted, then your website ranking will go to 0. And also there are chances that your website
ranking will never improve with PBN links. So I will highly recommend to stay away from
PBNs, or Fiverr links or SEOClerks links. They will not help your website, they will
rather give you a Google penalty. So my best strategy is to first, go to ahrefs,
add you competitor’s URL here in the site explorer. My strategy is to make a list of your competitor,
and add their domain names one by one in ahrefs or Ubersuggest, whichever one you are using. Download all their referring domains, and
start emailing them one-by-one. If you’re using a free or alternative, you
can use GMass. If you’re using automated software like
me, you can use NInjaOutreach or BuzzStream. And for all the email scripts that I am using
to build backlinks, all you have to do is like the video, and subscribe to the channel
and comment with “yes, I want it” and I will share all the email scripts, in the
description section. Now for the next technique to build backlinks,
you need to put in some efforts in the beginning. But it will drive you free traffic, as well
as few initial backlinks, whenever you’re building your first Amazon affiliate website. So the technique is about creating a very
comprehensive article on the top experts on your niche. Your website could be on any niche. It could be guitar niche, it could be fashion
niche, or it could be dog niche or anything. So the idea is to create a very comprehensive
article of all the blogs that exist in the dog niche, or whatever niche your website
is in and feature them in your article. So for that, what you’ll have to do first
create an excel sheet like this. So here, the last name, first name, contact,
the email address, the URL of the website you’ll be featuring and the type of website
it is it could be blog, it could be commerce, etc. We’ll be focusing primarily on blog and
the domain authority. Because this is a very important metric. We need backlinks from high authority websites,
so that the backlink power is high. So let’s say your website is in the guitar
niche. So all you have to do is search “top guitar
blogs” and open all the articles that rank. Then what you have to do is, go through each
of the blog that is listed on this article and add them to your excel sheet. So like here, the first is premiere guitar. So add the premiere guitar domain URL, type
of the website it is, and also check the domain authority using all the extensions on the
website. Then find an email address. So let’s say if dwe go to the website, so
we’ll just- so let’s say we just go to the website and we’ll copy the URL. We’ll add this to our list here. Similarly, we’ll try to find the contact
address. So to find the contact address, there’s
a very amazing extension which is free. All you have to do is search for “email
hunter chrome” and click on this first result. And add this extension to your chrome. Add this extension and this will really help
you in finding the email address of the majority of the websites. Apart from that, you can also search for “contact”
and check the contact page. Most of the time, the email address will be
present in the contact page as well. Or you can use other extensions as well. So this way all you have to do is, populate
this excel sheet will all the blogs. So from 1… to 2… to 3… to 4. And that’s- similarly make a list of at
least 100 to 200 blogs here. So not just this article, you should check
all the articles which should feature the various guitar blogs. So this way you’ll have a very comprehensive
list of your targets that you can focus on. If you don’t want to do this work yourself,
you can also outsource this on any freelancing website like “Freelancer.in” or “Upwork”. Now the next step is to create the article. This again you can write it yourself or again
outsource it on iWriter. Like the one I mentioned on another video. So all you have to do is, for every URL here,
just open the URL and make a short description, take a screenshot of the home page and similarly
a short description about the website. You can do it yourself or you can outsource
it. And this way you can add a very comprehensive
article on your website, your affiliate website. So this way you’ll have a very comprehensive
article of top expert blogs on your niche. Your niche can be anything. So once your article is done and published,
now comes the part of promoting it and also getting backlinks for it. So for that all you have to do is, once your
article is published. So there are few email scripts that you have
to use. Like in the sheet we also added the contact
address here, right? So this is where we’ll be using it for all
the people who have been featured on your article. You have to email this email script to all
of them. Like email subject “we love your awesome
blog!” and here, “hi, name- name of the person”. You’ll be substituting the name field for
the name here. “Love what you’re doing on the site name”. Here you’ll be mentioning the site name. Just wanted to give you the heads up that
you were featured in my new article, add the article title here. And the- your article link here… And I really hope it will deliver some new
visitors to your site. So this way in a way, you are boosting the
ego of the other person… that they have been featured on your blog. So everyone loves appreciation, so they are
likely to share your article on various social media platforms and they would give you a
reply. There will also be people who will not be
replying to your email. So you can also send a follow up and I highly
recommend you guys to do a follow up, because I’ve seen at least 20 – 30% people replying
to me when I send the follow-up. So in the follow up, you just have to send
the “I was thinking about you” in the subject line. Hi (name), just checking to see if you have
received the last email that I sent you. And again, mention the link. So this way you’ll be able to reach most
of the bloggers that have been featured. And either they will be replying to you or
thanking you or some of them will even be sharing your article. Now comes the backlinking part. So using this technique you were able to build
relationship with these few expert bloggers on your niche. Now, all you have to do is send this particular
email script to them. Hi (name). Glad you liked it. I’m a big fan of your blog. By the way, I’m still new to this whole
blogging world and I would love to contribute a guest post on your blog. Give them 3 ideas, some really good titles
which they are more likely to approve on their website. And this way you can do a guest posting on
their site. And in the guest post you can include a backlink
to your homepage, or to an article that you are targeting. So I know this particular process is a little
lengthy one because you have to first complete this excel sheet then you have to get this
article written. And then you have to promote it, send the
emails. But then again I have seen the conversion
rate is comparatively higher, compared to the other methods that we do for backlink
building. So this will really help you in getting those
initial backlinks when your website is new. And… so I highly recommend this technique. One other thing that you can do is that you
can also send a badge. Like you can create a free badge on Canva.com. You can add text here like top expert 2019,
whatever year it is going. Top dog food expert if your niche is dog food. And you can also send this badge along with
the email that you have been featured in the blog. So many people add this badge on their homepage
or on their site. This again will help you get few backlinks. If anyone embeds this badge on their website. So this was the technique of building backlinks
to top experts kind of articles. So you can use this technique as well, whenever
you are starting a new affiliate website. Now the next technique will be guest posting
and I love guest posting because the conversion rate of getting backlinks is comparatively
higher, because you are also providing a high-quality content to the other person. So it’s a win-win situation for both of
the people. So to find a guest-posting opportunity, all
you have to do is enter the niche. Your niche here- you can- your niche could
be anything. It could be guitar with the double quotes
and the guest post. So all these websites are accepting the guest
post. All you have to do is make a copy of this
particular tab here, and you’ll get a copy here. And again, instead of this, we’ll rename
it to guest post opportunities. And again, we’ll make a comprehensive sheet
of all the opportunities that we could find. So go from each article by article. Again you can do this yourself or you can
outsource it through freelancers. All you have to do is go to the website. Go to the contact or the guest post here. And you’ll see that they might even have
an email address, like here is the email address “[email protected]”. Copy it at the contact data, add the name
like “Josh” the URL of the website, domain authority, etc. Make sure you do ask comprehensive research
as possible. Try to find as many opportunities as you can
find. I’ll recommend you guys to outsource this
work by creating a video tutorial and outsourcing it for freelancing websites. So once you have this done, all you have to
do is send them emails for a guest posting page. And in the guest posting page, you’ll be
asking them that you want to send a high quality article on their website and that in return
you just want a do-follow back link. I’ve seen that I have been able to convert
2 – 3 persons of my emails in to actual backlinks. So guest posts is something that I highly
recommend to you guys. I will recommend you guys to start with the
top expert, then also do the technique that I did in the start of this video, of looking
at the backlinks of your competitors, while side by side doing the guest posting. If you want my email template on how I build
my guest post links on my website, then you can like and subscribe to the channel and
comment “yes, I want it”. And I’ll share all the email scripts that
I’ve shared on this video and also many more emails that will really help you in building
backlinks for your website. Now the next technique is guestographic. In guest posting you are sending an article
to your website. In guestographic you are sending an infographic. So what to do is, create an amazing infographic
on your website. Honestly there’s this amazing article by
Backlinko.com on how to get backlinks using guestographics techniques. I highly recommend you guys to read this entire
article. It’s an amazing resource and I use this
technique myself. I know it will require you to create an amazing
infographic but then again, creating backlinks is not that easy. You need to invest some time, or energy or
money. If you want to scale an Amazon affiliate website. So I highly recommend you guys to read this
article on Backlinko.com on how to get backlinks. Using the guestographics technique. The technique is all about creating a high
quality infographic and then promoting it, just like you are reaching out for a guest
post. And many of the websites will start giving
you backlinks and then they’ll feature your guestographics on their website. The best part about guestographic is for guest
post technique, you have to write a new article for every website. But with the guestographic one infographic
once, and you can get as many backlinks as possible using a single infographic. So that’s the best part about guestographic. You can even go one step ahead if you can
create an animatic infographic. Now I know that creating something like this
won’t be possible if you don’t have the design background, so you can outsource it
and create an amazing infographic- animated infographic like this. So creating backlinks will be much more easier
if you go one step ahead and create something like this and do the outreach process and
send those email scripts. And many of the people will be happy to lend
to you. Like this is another amazing inforgraphic. So find ideas on how you can create an animated
infographic for your niche. And then use the outreach process to build
backlinks to your site. And one last thing that I highly recommend
you guys to do is go to this website, Backlinko.com. And read all their articles. Like go to the blog section and read all his
articles. Similarly go into “ahrefs.com/blog”. And read all these articles as well. They have some really, really amazing tricks
on how to build high quality backlinks. And this will really improve your SEO game. Similarly there is this 3rd website called
“robbierichards.com”. And I highly recommend you guys to again visit
and read all the articles of this website. So these 3 websites, if you are reading all
the articles, these are more than enough for you to find all the tactics that actually
work in building backlinks. These are the pros of SEO- these guys know
how to rank their articles to number one for very, very high competitive keywords. And guys, there is no magic ways to backlinks. I cannot give you a list of websites where
you can directly go and sign up to get backlinks. Backlink is a very slow process. I have a team of almost 9 people working for
me just for SEO itself. And trust me there are days when we are not
even able to build single backlink. Even with the 9 member team. So if you’re going the white hat way, if
you’re going with high quality and low quantity. Then, it’s a slow area. But then again the results will be amazing,
because once your website gets ranked, you will be getting the free traffic, for all
the years to come. So now let’s go through the Top 10 SEO tips
that you have to keep in mind, while building backlinks. Number 1, focus on quality not on quantity. One quality backlink is 100 times powerful
than 1,000 low quality backlinks. Number 2, focus more on do-follow backlinks
and less on no-follow backlinks. This does not mean that you won’t be building
nay no-follow backlinks, because even having 100% do-follow backlinks will look shady in
the eyes of Google. Number 3, have patience. SEO is not a sprint, rather a marathon. You cannot expect to see results in just few
days, rather, the results will start coming after few months. Number 4, don’t just focus on off-page SEO
or creating backlinks. You should also your energy on on-page SEO. Like writing an SEO-friendly article, internal
linking and doing SEO audit. Point number 5, a relevant article for a low
quality website is more powerful, than a non-relevant backlink from a high-authority website. Point number 6, don’t create all your backlinks
using the same anchor text. Rather, diversify your anchor texts, throughout
your backlinks. Point number 7, don’t buy backlinks from
any of these services like Fiverr.com or SEOClerks.com. Instead of helping your website, this shady
backlinks will rather give you a penalty from Google. Point number 8, I have seen in many YouTube
videos who call themselves SEO gurus, they ask their viewers to go to the comment section
and make comment backlinks. Trust me guys, they are not worth it. You should never make comment backlinks. First of all, they are no-follow and they
will not help your website, at all. Point number 9, if you really want to be good
at link-building, you have to invest some money on a good SEO tool. The tool that I recommend and personally use
is ahrefs. This tool alone is helping me create backlinks
for all my affiliate websites combined. Point number 10, you should also have 20%
of your overall backlinks, pointing towards your homepage. It’s all about looking natural and organic. If you are building all your backlinks to
just the articles and not the homepage of your website, this looks shady. So make sure 20% of your backlinks are pointing
towards your homepage and the rest 80% are pointing towards the, articles. So what are your next steps? Click here if you want to watch our complete
