Linkbuilding Research Is Only Ideation

There are many clever ways to find linkbuilding opportunities.

Crawl a popular site within your niche, pull how many comments their pages get, then explore those with high counts.

Analyze a Q&A site like Quora for a keyword topic, seeing what long-tailed phrases appear.

Tools like BuzzSumo can list pages by social engagement, and you can see keywords that rank on competitor sites through Ahrefs and SEMrush.

Despite the creativity behind these approaches, they only ideate on how to help your target audience. In the end, you need to put in the work to make something valuable. Linkbuilding research is the kindling, not the flame!

A good SEO will uncover possibilities. They won’t bring skills for designing an infographic, writing an expert guide, or shooting an explainer video. They can only predict and maximize the organic search potential of this creation.

Never miss a useful SEO insight.
