Smart nonprofits know that building relevant links will help them become more visible in the organic search results. Ranking well in the SERPs is especially important to these organizations because they likely struggle with an undersized advertising budget and an oversized amount of rad activities, events, and actions that people should be able to discover via Google.
So this one is for you, my do-gooder friends. Here are some link building opportunities that work well for nonprofit organizations, some of which you can build in the time it takes you to call me a “sell out” behind my back (or give a poem to an orphan or whatever.)Read More
Let’s be honest: link building sometimes has a lousy reputation within the SEO and even online marketing world. Part of me wants to blame this on fools, misinformation, FUD, and Google. Part of me longs to turn this post into a lengthy rant that likely no one would want to read. Links are at the very core of Google search! Links are still the strongest signal we can give search engines as to our legitimacy, authority, relevance, and...Read More

I love link building. Although it’s hardly the industry I thought I would land in while I was...Read More

For many of us in the business, the process of modern day SEO includes the undoing of previous optimisation efforts. This generally means the undertaking of backlink analysis, link removal, nofollowing old links and disavowing spammy domains.
