Handling a well set up deep linking operation can be a lot of fun. It can also be very frustrating.
In this post I will try to inspire you to come up with new and fresh approaches to have fun while working on it.
Managing a good deep linking campaign is not always easy when you need to come up with ways to market your company. When done correctly, a well managed deep linking campaign captures the target market’s attention. You need to keep the audiences interested in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
Use of your own employees in Thailand to manage projects outsourced to the deep linking agentOften, people in the Thailand-department 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 firm are aware of. Although, 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 discussed.
Is there any difference when using a deep linking agent in Thailand compared to having the staff working on this inhouse?Should you employ professionals from a deep linking agent in Thailand or can one just as well use someone in the company to take care of deep linking at the house?The questions you need to ask yourself has a number of aspects that you should think about. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a deep linking agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Thailand.
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
Putting 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 inhouse staff. If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from company staff without adequate resources dedicated to handling the deep linking. The deep linking agent knows that these things require a lot of attention and are knowledge-intensive, so they have dedicated the resources needed to handle the project in a responsible manner. I have always been of the opinion 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 Thailand, 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.
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 Thailand are doing, potential public relations disasters in the form of negative reviews and much else useful.
Majestic.comMajestic SEO is the world’s largest link index. Use this tool to find out everything of interest about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Thailand 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.
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.
