That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best link-building services – categorized by niches. We came across them while trying to outsource our SEO efforts. Of course, that was before we set up Smartlinks – which is also on the list.

Although there are plenty of good link-building services out there, there are also some that use questionable tactics and oversell spammy links. Sadly, it’s easy to fall for their gimmicks – which is why we've put together this list of services for you to avoid:

a) Low-Cost Services

Link-building is a cost and resource-intensive endeavor that requires:
  • SEO experts to perform audits
  • Outreach specialists to find(and finalize) relevant opportunities
  • Writers to create link-worthy content
…and link-building tools that help with prospecting and outreach.
If anyone tells you otherwise or claims to build X links for $5 or $10, you need to steer clear of them.
notion image

b) Negative SEO Blast Services

These services spam your competitors’ sites with low-quality links to reduce their rankings. They usually build thousands(or millions) of such links to trigger a penalty.
notion image
In addition to being unethical, this is also ineffective.
According to Google’s John Mueller, the search giant is pretty good at ignoring negative links – making these services a complete waste of time and resources. If you’re reading this, you’re certainly looking to avoid that.

c) Services That Use “Write for Us” Pages

Some agencies use the “Write for Us” page to find guest-posting opportunities. The problem with this is that:
  • The majority of these sites are built to sell backlinks. As a result, they accept contributions from anyone and link out to all kinds of domains(gambling, adult, etc.).
  • There’s a high correlation between manual penalties and sites with words like “Write for Us” and “Guest Posts” on their pages. Take a look at this video to learn more:
Video preview
Ideally, you'd want to work with services that blacklist these websites (check out their homepage and FAQs for more information). Also, as part of due diligence, you'd want to scan prospects shared by agencies for any red flags.
Link farms and PBNs are link schemes designed to manipulate SERPs. The difference between the two is that one is a network of websites linking to each other, whereas the other is a network of sites created solely to build links to one website.
As of 2016, both PBNs and link farms are considered link spam. Nevertheless, some agencies still use them for link-building.
If you want to avoid a penalty (or worse, a manual action from Google’s Web Spam Team), avoid backlinks from sites with:
  • Poor quality content
  • Low organic traffic but abnormally high DA/DR
  • Spammy, irrelevant domain names
  • A high number of backlinks(with irrelevant anchor text)
  • Anonymous authors

e) Services That Don’t Have Experience in Your Niche

Always look for services that have experience in your niche. To be clear, they don’t have to be niche-specific. However, they should have demonstrable experience(supported by case studies or testimonials) in your industry – since that would make them fairly well-equipped to deal with its unique challenges.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

Some common types of link-building services are:
  • Guest Posting Services: They publish your content on other websites and help you get backlinks(or brand mentions) in exchange. Their operations are content-intensive.
  • Link Insertion Services: They build backlinks from existing content with a few contextual changes. Their operations don’t require extensive content creation.
  • Link Reclamation Services: They monitor online mentions of your brand and reach out to sites that have mentioned your brand but haven’t linked back to your website.
  • Local Citation Services: These services ensure your business is listed in all the important online directories.
  • Digital PR Services: They combine public relations and SEO strategies to improve your brand awareness and visibility online.
Based on our experience, we suggest you consider the following when hiring a link-building agency:
  • Experience: Consider services that have a proven track record in your niche. An agency with a history of successful campaigns (supported by case studies and testimonials) is more likely to deliver quality results.
  • Replacement Guarantee: Ensure the agency offers a replacement guarantee for lost (or ineffective) links. This demonstrates a commitment to delivering value for your investment.
  • Reporting: A reliable link-building service should provide regular reports on the progress of your campaign, including updates on new links(with their anchor text, link type, and target page URL) and their overall impact on your SEO.
  • Pricing: Consider the pricing structure of the agency. See what’s included in the cost, whether it’s a one-time investment, and if there are any additional charges.
  • Customization: A good link-building agency should offer customized strategies tailored to your specific needs and goals. Ideally, you’d want someone who takes some time to understand your business and come up with a personalized plan.
