Link Building

It’s no secret that link building is the most important skill in SEO.

The Evolution of Link Building

1999
Link Exchanges

Webmasters began to realise they could quickly make their sites rank higher by creating loads of links back to their sites. One of the fastest ways of doing this was for networks of webmasters to ‘exchange’ links with each other.


Directories

Soon came the ‘SEO directories’ - they started springing up (and haven't stopped!), allowing webmasters to submit their sites to a directory that would link back to their site.

2001

2003
Blog Commenting

Blogging was growing as a trend and webmaster began to exploit it for link building purposes; a favoured tactic was blog commenting with links pointing back to a target site.


Article Submissions

A fusion of directory submissions and blogging, syndication sites that allowed article submissions began cropping up. Webmasters were allowed to submit content of low quality to sites that would provide a link.

2004

2006
Paid Links

As free opportunities became scarce, webmasters started aggressively targeting links to stay ahead of the competition. Paid listings and links became the norm. Anyone and any site would do!


Linkbait

The term ‘linkbait’ emerged in 2008 when Lyndon Antcliff made up a story for money.co.uk about a teenager stealing a credit card from his parents to pay for prostitutes. The story was completely fabricated (fake news isn't that new!), and designed only to build links, yet another "black hat" trend is born.

2008

2009
Guest Blogging

Webmasters began approaching the owners of other sites and asking if they could create a piece of content for them in exchange for a link . Although "Sharing is Caring" it wasn't long before this trend went the same way as the others and was ruthlessly exploited.


Link Building Software

Webmasters and now looking towards "SEOers" and began to equip themselves with more advanced toolsets that could identify link opportunities, broken link building started to become a more widely adopted strategy. If a site was linking to a domain that no longer existed, another webmaster would let them know the link was now broken, and offer their own site as a new link.

2010

2011
Press Releases

Although press releases had been used for link building more predominantly since the original ‘linkbait’ episode of 2008, the strategy started to become more exploited in 2011. Partly down to everyone wanting to have their own website with a voice and partly because more sophisticated tools for press release distribution began to emerge.


Blog Networks

Webmasters began building their own blog networks more aggressively around 2012. Private blog networks (PBNs)  are a collection of sites owned by the same webmaster, sometimes running into the thousands.  These PBNs would inter link and eventually link back to a target site in order to improve its rankings.

2012

2013
Content Marketing

Professional Markering Agencies enter the scene, although content marketing and link building are not the same thing it soon became a new tool for link building. An evolution of ‘linkbait’, you would see infographics, microsites and other creative assets developed and outreached with a view to building ‘quality’ links.


Brand Mentions

At this time social media was largely untapped, links from websites soon became mixed with URL sharing across social media. New software would search these platforms looking for mentions of a particular brand. If these brand mentions didn’t contain a link, the webmaster would ask if it would be possible to add one in.

2014

2015
Influencer Marketing

Again, influencer marketing was not a new concept, but more of an evolution of Brand Mentions. Digital celebrities would be asked to post adverts to sell products or services. Bloggers became Influencers, who became Micro Influencers, it quickly became inherited by link builders who would provide free product or cold hard cash in exchange for a link back to a target site.
