Quick SEO

While there are many theories about SEO, basics are quite simple. Top pages on Google for a search query have passed all the possible signals and algorithms which Google uses. Quickest way to optimize your site is to start with those. If you can get a link from one of those, or from pages they link to, you are off to a good start!

Get prospect pages within minutes

On-page SEO is completely under your control. Off-page SEO and link building on the other hand depend on people who you want to link to you, and this step can consume huge amount of time and effort without a guarantee of success. It is very important to select the potentially most useful pages for link building and outreach. If you narrow the selection to the best ones, you will spend much less time outreaching to less valuable resources. Top results may not be easy to get a link from, but pages they link to may be much easier. The more relevant the better.

8 steps for gathering link building resources

  1. Install an addon for a browser for plain link extraction, i.e.
    • Open Google Chrome
    • Install LinkKlipper
    • In its options add regex ^((?!(google|doubleclick)).)*$
  2. Search Google for your phrase(s):
    • either main phrase with settings to show 100 results
    • or several related phrases with settings to show 10-20 results
  3. Use LinkKlipper's option extract all links
  4. Remove blogger and youtube homepages from the extracted list
  5. Copy links into your examples topical crawl settings
  6. Run the crawl
  7. Download a list of prospect pages from the backlink tools page
    prospect pages
  8. Manually inspect the links to further eliminate non prospect pages (i.e. government site where there is no way you can get a link to your ecommerce site)

What above achieves is the following, for the list of 100 pages which actually rank the best in Google for your query phrase, our machine learning algorithm will learn what defines a topic for those 100 pages, and what other relevant phrases are significant for those pages. Then, using the optimized crawling algorithm, it will retrieve the most relevant on-topic content (which will cover other relevant phrases, not only the one you queried on Google). The prospect pages backlink tool will show you the most popular among these relevant pages which link to at least few relevant external domains, and are therefore likely link building candidates.

In other words:

  1. Our vector space based algorithm works on high dimensionally defined topic, not unique phrase.
  2. Starting from Google's top selection we position our initial crawl into Google's center for this phrase.
  3. Our optimized algorithm then smartly crawls around the center, while getting the most relevant and popular content.
  4. What this means, we do not get most relevant backlinks to those top 100 pages, but those pages being most relevant we get their outgoing relevant links and other nearby pages in the web graph (and prospect pages on the way).

One step for gathering link building resources

You can skip to the step 8 above right away, we'll do the remaining 7 steps:

  • For a single $ per query, with a crawl of 1,000 on-topic pages
  • For $5 per query, with a crawl of 10,000 on-topic pages
  • For $50 per topic (dozen related queries), with a crawl of 100,000 on-topic pages
  • For $100 per topic (dozen related queries), with a crawl of 1,000,000 on-topic pages

Step 9: outreaching

This is still the most important step. Once you find your prospect pages, don't simply spam them as it will be an opportunity wasted. Sometimes it is worthwhile creating a new page or even a new feature on your website which will make it more relevant to that prospect page, and which will make it more likely to get a link there. I have done similar things numerous times, and it almost always works.. Sometimes I spend days in implementing new content or feature, but then successfully get a high quality link.
