Creating a deep linking campaigns can be a rewarding experience, but it can also create frustration.
In this post I will try to inspire you to come up with new and fresh approaches to keep the fun going.
Getting the deep linking campaign right is not always easy when you need to come up with ways to market your company. A well managed deep linking campaign captures the audience’s attention. You need to keep the readers fascinated by the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
Use of your own employees in Portugal to manage projects outsourced to the deep linking agentOften, people in the Portugal-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what one would expect from a deep linking agent far away or what the people at the headquarters of your organization know about. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the deep linking agent. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be thought of.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a deep linking agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time spent and resources usedPutting the work out to a deep linking agent can certainly pay off, but it is still important that there are available resources that can handle this in a proper way on the part of the organization. If you already have limited resources, it is unlikely that this type of task will receive sufficient focus and attention from internal staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the project. The deep linking agent knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources necessary to handle the project in a professional way. It has always been clear to me that it is you who know your product and your market best, so if you have the resources needed, it is definitely the best thing to do it yourself. This is something that must be carefully considered before making a decision on how to proceed with deep linking.

Good deep linking toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a deep linking agent – whether this is handled by your department in Portugal, or centrally at the headquarter. Below is a handy checklist of things you need to think about, as well as the best tools you can use for either free or commercial tools where free alternatives are not available or significantly inferior to the commercial ones.
Ranks.nlRanks.nl has a number of professional SEO tools that I can really recommend. One of the tools I use most is Page Analyzer. With this tool, you can check keyword density on each subpage of your domain to optimize for keywords or phrases. If the deep linking agent you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. You can use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Portugal are doing, or what national and international competitors are up to. Links to your website and subpages are crucial to your search engine rankings, so this is important to keep tabs on.
Google AlertsTo be on top of things, it is important to know what happens as early as possible. Google Alerts sends you an email every time someone mentions the words and phrases you specify. This can be anything from trademarks that are important to you, people of interest or general words and phrases that are important to your business. You can have alerts for all employees, freelancers you use, your trademarks including websites you run and words and phrases you focus on. All of this gives you a good overview of what is being talked about that matters internally. Google’s notification is free to use and helps you to be early in terms of being on top of what your competitors in Portugal are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
