HI: when you search on my company “mycompany. com” I have 4,360 links online.
When you search my competitor (and there are only about 5 or 6 in North America) they have 428,000 .
How do I even start to compete with that. I do have 3rd page on google and on yahoo and bing im on one for one of my key words, and they are also up there. I am emailing places I find their link to see if I can get a link, paid or otherwise, but how do you even set out to do 428,000 links?
Thank you in advance.March 30, 2018 at 6:40 pm #179933
Thanks so much for your question. Like most things link building takes time. While there is certain content that may go viral having an established brand expedites this. I am not sure how long your competitor has been active but that could certainly be playing a role in their number of links. There is also the possibility that they are able to dedicated more resources to their seo efforts and potentially have an entire team around it. First things first his craft your outreach carefully. Often the mistake many make in seo outreach is doing blast with no organic touch which can come off as annoying to those they reach out to. Now this does not mean you have to craft a message from scratch each time but have a base of why you are reaching out to them, feel free to give them a compliment about their own business and why you are reaching out and the benefit to them linking to you. If you are only talking about what it can do for you that’s likely going to get low positive feedback as they might not know you from Adam but actually know your competitor.
