Handling a balanced link building operation can be a lot of fun. It can also be very frustrating.
In this post I will try to give you inspiration with new and fresh approaches to have fun while working on it.
Managing a interesting link building campaign is not always easy when you need to come up with ways to market your company. When done correctly, a good link building campaign captures the target market’s attention. You need to keep the target markets immersed in the story, and they will continue to read if done right.
The project you are thinking of setting out to a link building agent can be time consuming and difficult to learn, but it can be well worth the time and resourcesPutting the work out to a link building 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 firm. If you already have limited resources, the project will almost guaranteed not get enough attention and dedication from in-house staff without adequate resources to handling the link building. The link building agent knows that these things are time-consuming and are knowledge-intensive, so they have put the resources needed to handle the project in a proper and 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 link building.
Is there any difference when using a link building agent in Spain compared to working with this internally?Should you hire experts from a link building agent in Spain or can one just as well use staff at the house to take care of link building in the organization?The questions you need to ask yourself needs to be addressed in a thoughtful way. Here, I will try to discuss some of the things you should be aware of before deciding whether a link building agent is needed or whether it is better using internal staff in the organization at the local branch office in Spain.
Use of own employees in Spain to manage projects outsourced to the link building agent
Often, people in the Spain-office can have broader knowledge of what is going on locally than what is reasonable to expect from a link building agent far away or what the people at the headquarters of your firm have detailed knowledge about. Although, this does not necessarily mean that it is good use of resources to engage internal human resources locally in relation to the link building agent. Below I will highlight some of the things that need to be agreed about before proceeding.
Good link building toolsThere are some things you need to be aware of when using a link building agent – whether this is handled by local staff in Spain, or centrally at the corporate 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 Spain 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 you need to know about links to your own pages and what your competitors locally in Spain 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 bunch 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 link building agent you are planning to use is at all professional, they probably use the tools available from ranks.nl – or similar tools extensively.
