I have a high value website that ranks well on Google and gets a ton of organic traffic.
The crazy thing is, that website has done almost all of that on its own.
It's been around for a long time (decade +), but I had never paid attention to SEO and have never spent time any time or energy maximizing the website's SEO value.
I just didn't have the time.
I also was deftly afraid of angering Google by going against their terms and artificially inflating my website with temporary "high value links." This website was and is way too valuable to mess with anything "black hat."
I decided to find out what I could actually do legitimately when I realized how much extra room there was to grow and get even more of the free "SEO" traffic everyone craves!
Getting SEO value
First, I tackled the "on-site" SEO, where I paid attention to site & page structure and optimized for best practices. Since I didn't have the time or the up-to-date expertise, I did this all through a freelancer hired through UpWork.
Still, I knew that acquiring external links (links outside of my website's domain) was the key to actually maximizing my rankings and traffic.
The problem was, SEO is a loaded term. And "buying links" is not only loaded but expressly forbidden by Google.
You simply cannot go out and purchase high value links legitimately to your website and not expect Google to come around to knocking down your website eventually.
Yet, many of the services you see advertising SEO services don't care. They'll tell you they're doing 'white-hat' work and end up placing your website link in networks that will eventually get found out and banned by Google.
It's a ticking time bomb, but they get their money so they don't care.
So what can you do to avoid shady SEO services that will get you banned by Google?
You can do natural, legitimate outreach and ask blog & website owners to feature your link because it fits their content, is a natural offshoot of what they already do, and it "makes sense."
You can do guest posts on blogs that are in your niche, providing value to website visitors and the blog itself because you are adding something new, and you just so happen to be promoting your website with a natural link-out as well.
That's all so time consuming, isn't there an easier way?
It's pricy but oh so worth it. In fact, my ROI on links placed using this service is easily 3x. As in, for every dollar I spend acquiring a high value link, I get 3 in return in terms of traffic, and that's just in the short term!
It's the best natural link outreach service I've found, called OutreachPete.
It's expensive, but you have to realize the value of just one or two guest posts with placed links can skyrocket the value of your website in Google's eyes.
You don't need to get a ton of guest posts with links placed, just some carefully researched high value ones to get over the hump.
I can't recommend them enough, and as I said, the value they provide is immense.
Anyway, check out OutreachPete.com and see for yourself.
Don't be afraid to pay a little if you know you need to jump start your organic traffic, the value really is there, and it will last.
