New General Link Building Queries

Advanced link building queries, for the link builders who use them extensively, remain a closely guarded secret. It’s easy to understand why. For one, they want to protect a valued link source from getting flooded with link requests from the general link-seeking public. Secondly, there are some choice opportunities out there that would lose their value if the entire SEO community happened to learn about them.

Another complication with discussing and sharing link building queries is that they’re often tailored towards the linkable and shareable assets of a particular organization. Further, two businesses within the same vertical may have widely different linkable assets, and therefore will need to seek different link targets, which requires different queries.

 Despite their link-protecting reticence and the complexity of communication, the 21 link builders I surveyed delivered a highly-valuable array of advanced link building queries. Thank you to all who participated!

Framing the process

In my questions, I asked link builders to respond within this framework:

Linkable Asset. Definition: what’s “linkable” varies from vertical to vertical. Cash is almost always a linkable asset, as are available jobs, events, expertise for interviews and many other forms of great content.
Link Target. Definition: what types of sites, pages, and people seek this linkable asset?
Link Prospecting Query. Definition: what queries uncover great targets for your linkable assets?
This framework couldn’t possibly suit every link builders’ style and expertise. I mention it because you’ll see it in some cases below.

Last notes before digging in – I missed getting queries from some great link builders due to time constraints imposed by my late start (apologies to those I missed!). If you want more sample queries from link builders please say so in the comments (and/or add your own) so I can build the case for a follow-up article. And in closing, I’d like to extend a thank you to the SEO Dojo for their warm welcome and link query suggestions.

Link building queries from 21 link builders

Query #1

Ken McGaffin, Keywords and SEO Blogger for Wordtracker Academy:
Here is a mini case-study on our Firefox plug-in ‘SEO Blogger’ which shows how we create linkable assets, queries and approach people for link building.

The link building project

‘SEO Blogger’ Firefox plug in from Wordtracker

At Wordtracker, we wanted to target anyone who published a blog and we were especially interested in business bloggers. We did a reasonable amount of research on the project and it kicked off with doing queries on Google.

We were interesting in identifying sites that had published articles on ‘business blogging’ or advised people how to blog. We identified our prospects using “intitle” queries on Google.

At the last count, this piece of work netted us over 1,000 links in just a few months.

The queries we used were quite simple but they produced an excellent list of target sites.

Here are the queries I used:

intitle:”business blogging”
intitle:”business blogs”
intitle:”blogging tips”
For each query, I’ll look at the first 100 results and then look to compile a list of what I think are the top 50 or so. I concentrate on the top 50 because it’s cost effective. If I get editorial coverage and links from among the top 50, then I know hundreds will follow their example.

You’ve got to have superb content and publicize it through multiple channels. That’s where we put in the bulk of our efforts. For ‘SEO Blogger’ we had a 7-step process:

Created a top notch, free plug-in.
We created a section on our Academy specifically to offer free blogging articles as well as a blogging download.
We also commissioned an e-book from Chris Garrett, “Blogging for Business” that would generate revenue.
About 4 days before launch, we contacted our top 50 researched targets, gave them some copy and invited them to be the first to try our new plugin – we asked them to write about it or tweet it if they found it useful. We gave people a strict embargo.
We wrote a series of customized press releases that went to the press list we’ve built up over the years. Note that we suggested how to link to us in all our communications.
This is the most important step – we responded to questions and queries almost immediately. That meant assigning people to take on that task. I’m convinced our quick responses helped build trust and relationships.
Finally, on release, we tweeted about the launch. Many of the bloggers journalists who we had contacted also tweeted at the same time. The results were fantastic – the synergy we got from these multiple channels is always what I’m after.
In summary,  I think you need to have a commitment to create great, free stuff in order to tap into these link targets.

Query #2

Shaun Anderson, of Hobo SEO Company in Scotland.

One of the simplest ways I use to build links for any business is finding colleges and universities who link degree students and alumni to to job opportunities, and promote their student discount partners online. I consider links from very real sites like these as authority building links.

Obviously the first thing to do is get used to publishing your job vacancies and any offers on your site, and then telling potential linking partners about them. TIP: never take these jobs offline either – just mention “Role Filled” and strike out the text.

Target Asset = Job Vacancy / Internships For (with your important keywords of course)
Key Link prospects = Universities and colleges, alumni sites
Link prospecting queries (in Google) = jobs degree, careers opportunities, careers advice, jobs degree, careers degree, careers advice + variations
View this example page typical of what you might find.
Another variation of this query occurs with colleges and universities who publish links to sites that offer their alumni special student discounts (so effectively, all you need is a student discount for products or services). This is useful even for small businesses in a very tight catchment area.

Target Asset = Student Discount For (with your important keywords of course)
Key Link prospects = Universities and colleges, alumni sites
Link prospecting queries (in Google) = student discount partners, student discount partners + variations
View this example page typical of what you might find.
Of course, in every case you need to dig around the site in question but offering a student discount to all colleges and universities and building a list of marketing communications offers at unis and colleges and contacting them asking for a link in their newsletter (which many have) in return for a student discount is going to be more rewarding than sending out 1000 unsolicited spam link request emails. TIP – don’t be cheap. The better your offer for students, the better chance you’ll get a link.

Ultimately these kinds of educational links are a win win – they are not hurting either site, and students get a good deal too. If you have good content on your site, you can just go right on and ask them to link to it if they already have a habit of linking out to similar sites to yours, or even send them articles about “How to get a job in {keyword} services” for their careers newsletter or resource section.

Query #3

Eric Ward, content link builder since 1994

Understanding how to use what Google will give you via advanced syntax queries is one of those private strategies where I don’t tell my exact approach, I only sort of hint at it. The specific queries I use are typically client/subject specific.

That said, I could share some vertical/marginally useful ones, say, if the content I am building links for is PBS’ content on volcanoes.

Then, an example target site would be this one.

And, I would have found that target site via a Google query string like this: [volcano learn diagram useful demonstration other links].

Now, this is a beautiful example, and it’s a real example, and it resulted in a topical link obtained, but…most folks who are building links are not doing so on behalf of PBS content about a vertical like “volcanoes”. So, while my example may look nice, and it worked for me because my clients are content creators like PBS, most folks will see my example and crucify me/it as being “unrealistic” for their purposes, since their content is not as “linkworthy” as PBS’s.

Query #4

Wiep Knol, newly of

Here’s a list of a few queries that I often use or have used in the past to find interesting websites. I left the most obvious ones out, because I assume that most people already know and use these.

Content targeted:

{keyword} “guest blogger” OR “guest post” OR “guest article” OR “guest column”
{keyword} “become a contributor” OR “contribute to this site”
{keyword} “write for us” OR “write for me”
{keyword} inurl:category/guest
You can refine these queries by using {keyword location} in stead of {keyword}, or by switching to just {location}.

Resource/ research targeted:

{keyword} “top * [tools/ articles/ websites/ etc.]” -> refine search to ~1 year ago. Contact anybody who shows up and ask if you can help with the 2009/ 20** edition of the article
{keyword} research -> see explanation above
{keyword} {location} resources OR “useful sites” OR links
{keyword} {USP} intitle:resources -> Use ‘green’, ‘cheapest’ etc as USP
.edu targeted: {keyword} “planned research” OR “upcoming project” -> might return upcoming research/ project/ whatever that can be useful (both for info and for links)
To find specific types of websites:

{keyword} “Powered by phpBB” OR “powered by vBulletin”
{keyword} “Blog powered by TypePad” OR “powered by WordPress”
Additionally, one thing that always works very well for me is asking the client what the most important industry related websites and blogs are, and which ones his or her favorite are. Then I do some searching in the LinkedIn connections and Twitter followers of the client and some of his colleagues, and look for connections with these websites. If I find a match, explain to my client how he can use that connection and turn it into a link. This not only results in links to the client website on highly relevant websites that he likes (=a happy client), but it also makes sure that he is building connections that will be useful in the future as well (= life time value).

Query #5

Ann Smarty, SEO Consultant,

target asset = new low-calorie chocolate product
key link prospects = mommy bloggers
link prospecting queries = [pr welcome], [submit * review], [pr friendly], [pr contact], [pr info], [get * reviewed], [allintitle:get * reviewed], [reviews inurl:submit]
target asset = a contest by fitness equipment store
key link prospects = bloggers who cover web contests with a link back to the host
link prospecting queries = [intitle:submit intitle:contest], [allintitle:submit * contest], [blog contests], [submit * giveaway]

Query #6

Debra Mastaler of Alliance-Link, link building services and training

We begin all custom campaigns by sending surveys to the client’s customer base, which cuts our prospecting time in half and pinpoints the sites and/or types of businesses we need to look for. From there, it’s a simple matter of doing basic research to match sites with our client’s demographic. I depend less on queries for this and more on tools like Quantcast and Compete. If I do need to query, I use all four engines (Google, Ask, Yahoo and Bing) plus DMOZ, Hoovers, Lexis Nexis and local directories. My goal is to find businesses with street and algorithmic credibility to pitch my promotions and content to.

Query #7

Melanie Nathan, consultant for Canadian SEO

Footprints: A footprint is simply common text than can be searched for thereby revealing all the places that use the same text.

For example, a Google search for [Allowed HTML tags:] will bring back all the sites and blogs that allow you to use custom anchor text when commenting.

If you happen to come across an authoritative site that allows you to automatically post content with dofollow links (for example, a classified ad), take note of the form they’re using as footprints left by the form software are easily trackable and can allow you to find other sites that are using the same form

Seo Link Building Tactics And Link Building Strategy

In Part 2 I described the most effective method for Link Building. It’s to support the Linkerati’s agenda – not yours. If you help them reach their goals linking back to you will be a fair exchange.

This is why you need to search for websites or blogs with specific articles you can add extra value to.

Following the steps in Part 3 you’ve created Link Building Queries and can run them through Google now.

Here’s how to filter the results for high link building probabilities:
Export Google’s Search Results – You can either do this manually and spend hours copying URLs from the SERPs onto your list. But you’d have to do this over again for each Link Building Query. The same can be achieved with minimum time investment using a SERP exporter tool such as the Google SERP Exporter. It’ll extract all root domains from the SERPs as well as erase duplicates. Copy all exported domains into an Excel spreadsheet and repeat the process for each of your queries.
Prioritize – This is by far the most time consuming process of the strategy. You either love to browse the web to check out new sites or might want to outsourcing this step in the future. But it’ll pay off.
To begin with quickly scan all domains on your list at least once. Make sure you delete all entries with low link building probabilities – the ones you know of. Those include sites with the sole agenda of making money or sites who might not link at all for legal matters – such as government organizations or nonprofits in some cases. This will narrow down your list quite a bit.
Now let the fun begin: Review each site on your list. Work them through one by one.

Scan for these criteria to identify powerful Linkerati:

The content of at least one page or post of the Linkerati website is congruent with the content you’re building links for
How large is the site’s audience? How many people does the author reach? Newsletter subscribers, RSS subscriptions, sans, followers or the number of comments per post are indicators you can take a look at.
Does the author want to be contacted? Are contact details or a contact form provided?
Is the legal imprint or other legal information published as HTML or as an image. Imprints in form of images are a clear sign for a SEO site. Don’t waste your time on them. In general there is no agenda you’d want to support.
How up to date is the site? Look for dates of the latest updates. Even scanning the content for year dates can help. Referencing of outdated resources indicates a lifeless site.
Is the site part of a publishing network – does it have siblings? In such a case you might be able to get links from the related sites as well.
Will laws or guidelines prevent the site from linking to you?
Does the site provide quality content and value to it’s audience? Actually read their content. Is it a site you want to be associated with? You might also take the overall impression into consideration

So, it is very much necessary for you to speed up your blog or site.

Absence of these tags will prevent the browser from knowing the size of the image before it loads. If the browser knows the size of the image, it will reserve the place for it and will load other elements of the page. Hence the loading of the page will become faster.

Optimized images or processed images will create lesser burden and will be able to make the website to open in a faster way. Hence, it is very much necessary to optimize the images, when you are uploading them to web i.e. to your blogs or websites.

Monitor Your Competitors With Ethical Tricks

Search engine optimization or SEO can be done by the website owners themselves. However, there are many others who would like to outsource this work to SEO companies. In both the case, the focus remains on the prime object and that is the website. The real challenge lies in the performance of the websites against all the other websites fighting for the top slot on similar keywords.

So, it is very important to judge whether or not a website has been performing well on the basis of White-hat SEO techniques. At this juncture, it is better to clear out doubts regarding this issue. Google, the undisputed leader of the Internet doesn’t approve black-hat SEO techniques and so, it heavily penalizes all those websites who they find are using any such similar tactics.

As a result, it becomes quite imperative to get oneself well-acquainted with all the basic intricacies of the SEO world. For instance, SEO professionals will have to find out about all the activities of their online competitors. This is because Internet users have so many alternatives to choose from that they’ll be spoilt for choices. In this regard, it is very important to mention that websites matching the tastes and preference of the consumers will be better performing ones in this virtual world.

So, it is crucial to monitor SEO-related activities of the rival websites. One has to widen his approach in order to track all such activities and implement SEO tricks based on White-hat rules or that are ethical. For that reason, companies offering products or services similar to them should be under their vigil. This is because these companies may outpace them on all or some of the targeted keywords, as far as SEO is concerned.

In addition to that, one needs to choose a good and competent SEO service provider since his websites may get heavily penalized by the search engines, if the company uses any black-hat techniques. Apart from monitoring the performance of rival websites, one has to look forward to the kind of business conducted online by the leading websites on the same keywords as of his. Even for such websites, one has to investigate whether or not these portals are using White-hat SEO techniques.

Search engines do not bother about creating a database of websites in terms of white-hat SEO or black-hat SEO. In other words, websites which violate the rules of ethical SEO are not segregated from the ones that confirm to the utmost standard of white-hat SEO. Moreover, spam filters fall short of resolving this issue. This is because a lot of good websites are dropped off the search results because of these filters.

As a result, it is the consumers who are the last resort for the search engines to improve themselves and weed out the bad eggs (in this case, white-hat SEO violating websites) from their search engine results page or SERPs. Hence, white-hat SEO should be considered as a long-term strategic commitment that should be applied right from the stage of designing the website.

It’s a misconception among webmasters that “Using  NoFollow attribute throughout the site preserve link juice and helps for high Google page rank ”. In fact you should use it sparingly, site-wide. If you want to practice SEO, which should be timeless, then this method is for you. This is a point, Google may consider to change the algorithm in near future. B’cos, if all webmasters practice NoFollow attribute, then how this page rank/ WWW will function ?

6. Make your comment section NoFollow: By default, almost all blogs have NoFollow attribute for comment section. But, you should double check for this. By following this method you can avoid spam mass and preserve your Google page rank.

Too Much SEO? Google’s Working On An “Over-Optimization”

Google’s Matt Cutts announced that Google is working on a search ranking penalty for sites that are “over-optimized” or “overly SEO’ed.”
Matt announced this during a panel Search Engine Land’s Editor-In-Chief, Danny Sullivan and Microsoft’s Senior Product Marketing Manager of Bing at SXSW named Dear Google & Bing: Help Me Rank Better!. The audio for the session has been published where I learned that Google has been working on a new penalty that targets site’s that overly optimize for search engines for the past few months.
Matt Cutts said the new over optimization penalty will be introduced into the search results in the upcoming month or next few weeks. The purpose is to “level the playing field,” Cutts said. To give sites that have great content a better shot at ranking above sites that have content that is not as great but do a better job with SEO.
Here is the audio clip, you can find Matt saying this about 1/3rd the way in. (Note: We’ve expanded it from what we originally posted,
The way that I often think about SEO is that it’s like a coach. It’s someone who helps you figure out how to present yourself better. In an ideal world, though, you wouldn’t have to think about presenting yourself and whether search engines can crawl your website, because they’d just be so good that they can figure out how to call through the Flash, how to crawl through the forums, how to crawl through the JavaScript, how to crawl through whatever it is.
And, for the most part, most search engines have made a lot of progress on being able to crawl though that richer content.
Now, what’s interesting about your question is you went a little bit deeper and you said, “Well, what about all the people who are sort of optimizing really hard and doing a lot of SEO?” And, uh, normally we don’t sort of pre-announce changes, but there is something that we’ve been working on in the last few months. And hopefully, in the next couple months or so, in the coming weeks, we hope to release it.
And the idea is basically to try and level the playing ground a little bit. So all those people who have sort of been doing, for lack of a better word, “over optimization” or “overly” doing their SEO, compared to the people who are just making great content and trying to make a fantastic site, we want to sort of make that playing field a little bit more level.
And so that’s the sort of thing where we try to make the web site, uh Google Bot smarter, we try to make our relevance more adaptive so that people don’t do SEO, we handle that, and then we also start to look at the people who sort of abuse it, whether they throw too many keywords on the page, or whether they exchange way too many links, or whatever they are doing to sort of go beyond what a normal person would expect in a particular area. So that is something where we continue to pay attention and we continue to work on it, and it is an active area where we’ve got several engineers on my team working on that right now.
