Which Is Better for Your Website: Backlinks or Content?
Wondering whether you should focus on building content or backlinks? In this Ask an SEO article, you'll discover which one is more important.
How to Build Backlinks Without Paying for Them
Look, if you want to rank on Google you need backlinks. We all know this, it’s hard, and that’s why a lot of people pay for them, but you shouldn’t pay for them. Paying for them is against Google’s policy, it’s a great way to get your site banned, it’s short term, it’s one of the silliest things you can do. So, if you don’t pay for them how can you get them? Today I’m going to share with you how you can build backlinks without paying for them.
RESOURCES & LINKS:
Why The Links You’re Building Don’t Bring You Any Traffic : https://youtu.be/pymmd-3Hrvw
Here’s how you do it.
Step one, I want you to head over to Backlinks, it’s a free link building tool that I created for you.
Go to neilpatel.com/backlinks and in the search bar put in your competitor URL, it’ll show you all the people that link to your competitors.
Within there I want you to search for the pages that they have that are the most popular.
It’ll show you that, you can see all the links, all the links that people are pointing to other than their home page.
And through the Backlink’s report you can also see that, you can see the backlink count for the whole domain, a specific URL, and when you find the right articles that competition’s going after, you want to look at the backlink count for that URL.
Now, if you’re struggling to find really good pages, another easy thing you can do is when you’re already in the Backlink’s report, in the side bar click on top pages, it’ll show you the top pages that your competitors are writing on, look at the ones that are most similar to you and you can also click the backlinks button there, it’ll show you every single person that’s linking to that article.
Second step, whatever that article is that your competitors wrote that’s similar or related to your industry, I want you to write a better version of that article.
You know, if it’s 1,000 words I want you to make it 5,000 words.
Yes, I know that sounds crazy, requires a lot of work, but go in depth. And I’m not talking about just shoving in keywords and making it long for the sake of it.
I’m talking about great amazing content.
Well, when I’m saying write amazing content, I want you to do things like talk about, if you’re going to write on how to make pizza, break down everything to, how do you pick the vegetables.
Organic versus ones with pesticides. Do you need to drain out the water from the vegetables when you’re cutting them up?
What’s the right length to cut your cucumbers?
All the way to, how the water quality changes the taste of your dough. Do you use bottled water? Do you use tap water?
And then how do you put your toppings? How do you cut it? What kind of fork and knife do you use to cut a pizza? Do you use that circular roller thing?
I don’t know how to cook because I’m not a cook, but you get the point. If that’s how you make a pizza I just want super in depth, and I would try to go even more in depth than that.
I would also include GIFs, animated with images showing like the process of making the dough and spreading it out and tossing it in the air and then catching it and then my wife getting mad at me for making a mess in the kitchen.
Again, I don’t cook but I would be a fun experiment, why not try it out?
So, you would do all these things, and making it super detailed is how you create better content than other people.
Whether it’s images, videos that you also want to add to your articles.
Whether it’s having a custom designer go in there and create graphics for you, all that adds up.
You want your content to be better. This is the most important part in this step.
It’s not using my Backlinks tool, you can use anyone else’s tool if you want, mine’s just free.
It’s nothing else.
This step, the second one, is the most important.
Now, the last step you need to take, you need to email out everyone linking to your competition and break down why your article’s better.
Most of it is manual labor on your end, and that’s why a lot of people don’t have links. It’s because they don’t want to take the time to build all those links, it’s just so time-consuming.
With you, if you’re willing to do that, you’ll outpace your competition, rank higher, and gobble up their traffic.

01:49 Two Tips That Can Help Build Up Your Backlink Profile
One of the most important factors in determining how well your website is ranked by search engines is its backlink profile. This is a list of links that point back to your site from other websites. Your website will be more highly ranked if it has more high-quality backlinks than other sites with similar content.
The best way to get high-quality backlinks is through guest blogging on other websites in your niche. This helps establish a connection between the two sites and makes it appear as though they were created by the same authority on a topic. You can also get free traffic from other websites in a number of ways. You can write articles for them, contribute content for them, or create entirely new original content for them.
Another great way to build up your backlink profile is by creating content that people want to share on social media. When others share your content with their followers, this increases the exposure of your brand and increases the likelihood that people will click through to your website from different social media platforms.
You can also submit your content to directories. Submitting your content to directories will return a link with your site’s information and a description of your content. Make sure that the descriptions you write for each piece of content are well-written and informative. That way, people can easily find what they’re looking for on your site.
The fourth way to build up your backlink profile is by building relationships with other sites. If you have similar interests or goals as another site, reach out and ask if they would be willing to exchange links with you. If they accept, you’ll get an additional link from them.
Now, here are some tips and reminders you can follow to improve your efforts.
Make sure that all of your content is original. Copying and pasting from other sites is not going to give you any additional links. In fact, it’ll probably hurt your ranking! So, make sure that everything you post on your site has been written by you or someone else who is authorized to publish it for you.
Build relationships with other sites by leaving comments and engaging with them on social media platforms. This will help establish connections between their audience and yours, which will result in more traffic for both parties!

Link Building in 2022: 7 Easy Backlink Opportunities for Beginners
Have you ever heard of a backlink or link building?
That’s fancy jargon for something simple—
A link back to YOUR website from another website.
Here’s why you should care: Getting links back to your website is CRITICAL to Google rankings.
These links—a.k.a. backlinks—are a powerful signal to Google that your website has some clout.
If nobody links to you, Google figures your business is small potatoes… Because nobody’s talking about you.
So it’s essential, in other words, to get as many backlinks as you can—usually by asking them directly, or by making content that’s so great that other sites link to you on their own.
But what USED to work when you were trying for backlinks doesn’t work so well now…
So I want to share 7 of my best strategies—methods that are still working well—so that you can get backlinks more efficiently and effectively.
These are the same strategies that SEO experts are using in 2021, because they help you build powerful, high-quality backlinks that tell Google they should put you in the search results.
And, as you already know, more traffic means more business—so I know you’re probably itching to dive in.
Lucky for you, I prepared a video on this stuff… Check out and get started on building backlinks as soon as you’re done.
