Free Content Advertising Authority Website

Last Update: January 25, 2019

It's been a while since I have blogged on WA, but today I find it important to share my way of getting important backlinks for your website.

Which backlinks are important?

  • Backlinks to related websites
  • Backlinks to websites with over 100.000 visitors a month
  • Backlinks to authority websites in your niche

Which backlinks are irrelevant?

  • Links to (unrelated) small websites (can do more harm than good)
  • Links to totally irrelevant authority websites

Backlinking to authority websites

3 Months ago I wrote an email to TheFreeSite.com with 500.000 visitors monthly, very relevant to my niche and 301+ cool amazing website tools page. I asked Marc McDonald; Would you consider paying attention to my Cool Amazing Tool Selection? 2 days ago I received the newsletter WITH my page in it! Free Amazing Website Tools!

I searched the TheFreeSite and I found a permanent link on the Misc.Freebies. Awesome!

How to find relevant authority websites?

Google your keyword phrase in the incognito mode and look which websites are on page #1. You can contact them using email or a contact form on the website and ask them to consider to check out your website and ask if they like the additional information or pay attention to your website/page.

Loes, thanks for sharing this information.

Lately, I have been read few blog posts, here and on other places on the internet recommending places that people can go to get back links. In some ways, I felt they were promoting random backlinks and communities set up the entire purpose of finding backlinks.

I was a bit confused about how "random" backlinks unrelated to a website's content or target audience could actually benefit some one's website. Google isn't stupid. They are constantly updating their algorithms. Yet, I am not an expert in SEO.

You are. So, I am glad that you are explaining the difference between good backlinks and bad backlinks. I only want the good kind.

Good afternoon Loes,

Long time no see, how are you?
I think I have good backlinks. What I have not done yet is to contact the owner of the website. I think my websites have to mature before they will look at me.
Really nice for you that you have been put on that website. It will help so much with traffic.

Great information here Loes, backlinks are a tough nut to crack as most sites with huge traffic numbers won't even return emails from someone with very little traffic or authority asking to link to their site but it never hurts to ask. I have gotten a few the way you explain here and they were definitely very helpful with rankings. People should definitely follow your advise!

This is really great stuff. I'm not so sure I agree with irrelevant authority sites NOT counting toward rankings, but that's not really important. I do, however, agree that if you get authority sites with over 100,000 visitors a month to link to your site, from anywhere on their blog or pages, it definitely counts in your favor to rank on page one. So this is so cool to see that you "get it", too!

Absolutely! I have several Link Partners who get over 1 million organic visitors a month and I can tell you that any time they let me guest post about my company, I always fly to the top of Google after they publish my article. So this backlinking stuff really works!

For ranking perhaps, but they sure care for traffic

There is a panel discussion on YT from 2016 with Google's representative saying that content and backlinks are number 1 & 2 ranking factors, in no particular order. Can send you the link. So backlinks are very important.

Good afternoon Bajram,

I do not understand what you mean. It might be a good idea to install Grammarly.
