IS IT WORTH PROMOTING A SITE ON GOOGLE USING LINKS?
SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization”. In simple terms, SEO is work carried out with the site code, its text and search engines (Google / Yandex). The purpose of these works is to increase traffic to the site and, as a result, the number of requests from potential customers. Often, the task comes down to being “in the top” of Google or Yandex. Because if a site is in the top, it gets clicked on more often. For a long time, a reliable way to reach the top has been link mass - the number of links from other people's sites that link to your site. The more links, the better. The more authoritative sites link to your site, the higher you climb on Google's ranking algorithms. Huge budgets were allocated for links and they were purchased in the thousands. From our current and potential clients, we often hear the question: is it worth buying links? We did a little research to understand how well links can work and what kind of result they give in the absence of other actions.
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO UNDERSTAND IF THE LINKS WORK:
1. For 9 months we have purchased and placed 2,178 links to the site. 541 of them with anchor (when the link is attached to a specific word).
2. We created a satellite (a special site that collects traffic for specific requests and links to the main site. Such sites were very popular at one time). From this site, another 17,215 pages are linked to our site under investigation.
3. We watched the indicators closely.
WHAT WERE THE RESULTS FROM THE PURCHASING OF LINKS?
1. A slight increase in traffic (conversions to the site) from links. About 100 additional site clicks per month.
This is VERY little considering the amount of work that has been done.
WHY DOES THE LINKS WORK SO BAD?
In 2019 , the main key to getting to the top is website optimization and content on the website.
Links can work. However, in order for the links to work, it is necessary to invest in article marketing and to enter links in thematic publications on really authoritative resources.
For our clients, we do not offer bulk purchase of links, as many SEO studios are used to doing. We offer quality changes to the site and content that lead to a result. For almost every client, we have increased organic traffic from Google (clicks from search without ads) by 2, 2.5 times in half a year. If you want to see the cases, just write to us :)
WHAT IS THE USE OF THIS INFORMATION?
1. If you buy links, make sure they are posted on subject resources in subject articles. If not, cut your budget.
2. In 2019, it makes much more sense to invest in content without trying to cheat Google, play by its rules and get an honest result.
Internal website optimization - 80% success. Unfortunately, the result is not always immediately visible. So please be patient and get to work :)
