Starting a link building campaign

Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some advice. I started working at my friends company in the Sign Writing/ Printing niche, around the beginning of October last year. One of my roles has been to work on the website and SEO to improve search visibility.

I am now trying to post content regularly through Facebook and GMB and have been reaching out to customers to get reviews on FB and Google.

I would now like to start a link building campaign but don`t have much experience in this area. Can anyone recommend what types of link I should be acquiring and the best places to get them. I`ve taken a look at what Fiverr has to offer but not sure if this is considered black hat and I am risking a manual penalty.

  • Michael Martinez: I would think long and hard before putting all that work at risk with a link building campaign. If you don`t know how to do it then you`re not ready to do it, and reading how to do it on the Web is akin to learning how to set yourself on fire with a lighter and a bottle of kerosene.
  • Brenda Michelin: If you have not already, concentrate on putting really good, comprehensive schema on the site. Not just the ordinary microdata crap like WebPage, Breadcrumbs, etc., but really good Local Schema.
  • Rishi Lakhani: Stay AWAY from fiverr links.
    Read up some basic guides on link building first, there are plenty out there
  • Tim Capper: Instead of linkbuilding, I would personally focus on finding out what your potential customers search for online to find a product - create copy to engage with them during the purchasing funnel.
