How We Acquire Backlinks

When it comes to SEO, backlinks are the most complex area, especially when you’re paying for them.

Google punishes sites that purchase links and don’t clearly outline that they are sponsored links. But sadly, many SEO services will sell you a solution that isn’t in the best interest of your site. This ranges from thousands of links from places like Freelancer or Fiverr to dedicated specialists who buy domains and rent out the links. So much so that Google’s Head of Search & influential industry leaders have declared war on these methods.

There are only a few ways to acquire links in a genuine way – this is through recommendations and references.

With our weekly blog content, we structure it in a way that gets high approvals for referencing statistics, industry trends & facts. This is what Google looks for in a genuine backlink. While this does take time to acquire, it’s well worth the wait.

The Harsh Reality of Backlinks

To acquire genuine, high-quality backlinks over time, you need –

  1. An optimized site that’s regularly updated
  2. Existing organic traffic
  3. Consistent blog content published
  4. No spam backlinks

As a service, we cover everything needed to achieve this over the long term. We’re not going to sell you ‘rank fast’ solutions as that’s not how SEO works. This won’t work for everyone, but it will for businesses that are looking to rank for the long term, not just a few weeks.

We typically see the first backlinks from our work come through in month 3, as we need time to publish a consistent amount of content, acquire high-quality organic traffic & disavow any spam links. With ThriveWP, you have a long-term solution for backlinks, but it’s important to note that high-quality work takes time.
