You’ve likely received an email with a subject line like “Building quality links on trusted and high authoritative websites” or “Blogpost/Links.” Heck, even search quality representatives at Google get these embarrassingly lazy emails to try and sell high DA (domain authority) links.
Here’s an example I received this morning:
I appreciate being part of your team, mate. However, I’m not buying the BS.
We know what linkbuilding is, and it’s not following up to a poorly written email and handing cash to a stranger.
We know that linkbuilding, especially for law firms, is difficult. So difficult, many law firm marketing agencies won’t even bring it up to you. Go ahead – ask em. What is your SEO agency’s strategy on earning your website links?
I’m hoping their answer didn’t involve replying to Deep and spending your hard-earned money on the small chance of getting that buzzfeed link…
For the record, Google is very good at ignoring these types of links. You may even be penalized for breaking their quality guidelines.
Please, don’t fill Deep’s pockets.
