We all know that SEO is a very fast field. And half of that is all about creating backlinks. You may not agree with this point but is a proven fact. No matter how good the quality of your content is, if you do not have an audience then your content holds no value. This happens especially when you are a new site. Having a new site means that you have practically zero audiences. Then in time like these, only one thing that can be done to gain audiences is by resource page link building.
So the question arises, where do you start?
The best way to create quality backlinks is by building links with the resource pages. In fact, in a study, it has been found that more than 50% of the webmaster confesses that the best strategy to have good quality and healthy links is to create backlink with the resource pages.
In fact, if say in simple terms, then this strategy is second only to content creation.
Creating backlinks with the resources pages means that you are referring to the other content of the same kind. This helps to boost your content credibility. What’s more, it also brings traffic to your site for your content. Hence, this way you can complete two objectives with just one social media strategy.
Let’s get down to the steps that can guarantee high-quality backlinks from the resources pages.
1. Finding relevant resource pages
You cannot just simply sit back and hope that our website will get picked by the other site. With this kind of passive thinking will surely affect your website. You need to be proactive in a matter like these.
Start looking for sine online that is closely related to your site. Make sure that the entire site needs to be related to your niche.
You can start off with the word that is mostly related to your niche. This way you will be able to pinpoint the exact websites that are similar to your website.
However, the SERPs will show all the result that having the keyword you searched for. You need to go through all the URLs to segregate out the best websites for you.
2. Customized pitching
Once, you have segregated the high authority websites that have the same niche as you. Then the only thing that remains is to pitch out to the webmasters.
But before sending a pitch to the webmasters, you should take out time to go through their WebPages to see what kind of links is shared on the website. This can give insight into what kind of link you should approach them.
And do not forget to customize your pitch as per the webmaster. To understand what kind of personality the webmaster has, you can read his reply to his users. This method can give you insight on what to write in your pitch to make it more effective.
3. Alternative search strings
I have already broken down the whole process of creating a backlink into two steps. The first step is finding relevant resource pages and the second step is to pitch them.
But just going with one keyword to find the relevant resource pages will not make the cut. So instead of going with one related key phrase, try several key phases. This will open up new relevant site possibilities for you.
4. Educational domain
It is ok to go with the common resources pages. But there will be a time that you will be out of option. So what can be done to overcome this crisis? The answer is very simple. You just have to try new domains.
Now instead of looking for a common domain like .com and .org, you can look for educational sites (.edu). Educational sites can also serve you as resources pages, provided it has content relevant to your website.
5. Related keywords
Now coming for the people who have a micro niche site that limits them to having fewer resource pages. The best way to overcome this crisis is to try out new search queries and related keywords to broaden your results.
Simply removing the quotes from the search query will help remove the limiter on the keyword and will show you every possible outcome associated with that keyword.
Resource pages would be first on your priority list of the creating backlinks. Take advantage of the search string that I have talked about in the article above.
Always go for the pages that are closely related to your website. It is best to make a list of the resource pages that are related to your website and then filter out the most related resources pages to pitch.
Make sure that you customize your pith according to the webmasters. This will surely help you pitch to be more effective. Finding the best webmaster that can offer you a deal is tough, but still doable. So just keep trying. With the best of your efforts.
