How to Build 41,142 Backlinks From One Simple Hack
There has to be a easier way to get backlinks than doing a ton of manual out reach and creating a ton of new content.
Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m going to share with you how to build 41, 142 backlinks from one simple hack.
Now what’s this hack that I’m talking about?
I’ll do into details on how to do a step-by-step and replicate the exact same results that we got.
But this hack is infographics, so back in the day I had this company called Kiss metrics and eventually I bought the Kiss metrics domain and then I redirected it to Neil Patel.com including all the content.
But within a two year period, we were able to generate 2, 512, 596 visitors and 41, 142 backlinks from 3, 741 unique domain names, all from 47 infographics.
From a social media perspective, in the last two years, these infographics have driven over 41, 359 tweets and 20, 859 likes.
So you’re probably wondering how we did this.
Well, it was really simple, the first step, what I want you to do is, within your industry, there’s some popular keywords.
Go to Uber suggest, type in those keywords.
Real popular head terms.
Then I want you to go to the content ideas report.
In Uber suggest, this will show you all the blog posts that have a ton of social shares, search traffic, and backlinks based off of key words and popularity.
Look for any ones that are data driven.
Now once you find the ones that are data driven, I want you to go to those pages.
You now have this blog post that has a ton of backlinks, ton of search traffic, ton of social shares, that is data driven.
What’s wrong with data?
It’s hard to comprehend.
So now the next step, I want you to go to Canva or Infogram, you can pick either solution.
And I want you to go create an infographic with that data.
Take that data, make it a very visual, easy to understand format.
That way people can skimit, get the information.
Make sure you cite your source, tell people where you got the data from, mention the original source, link out to them.
You can’t just jack their content and of course, sprinkle in any tidbits of value added information in a visual way that you can add that they didn’t cover.
Typically when you do this, people will want to share it, they’ll want to link to it, because it’s more valuable than the text based content.
Who wants to read text when they can see everythingin a beautiful image?
The next step, when you’re creating your infographic, have five to six main points.
That way it’s not overwhelming for people, yet it’s enough for them to be like wow, this is cool.
The five to six points need to flow together with each other, needs to tell a story.
I have an infographic from the Kiss metrics website on the meaning of colors, which colors are used for luxury versus which colors arenot used for luxury.
All those things flow together, I can tell a story, creates a beautiful infograph.
The next step, go back to Uber suggest, on that content ideas report, when you click the drop down of links, it shows you all the people linking to that page.
Now, take that, I want you to hit up all the people that linked to original page and just be like, hey I noticed you linked out to X Y and Z website, I actually created an infographic with all that data.
You can actually go here, embed that infographic into your blog post, that way people can understand the data and the message easier.
If you use it, feel free and link back to my site.
You’ll find that a lot of people are like yeah I already l inked to the original why wouldn’t I link to also beautiful infographic and embed it into my website so that way I can get more traffic.
The next thing I want you to do, when you have this infographic also publish it on your site that way people can link back.
But use a plug-in if you’re using WordPress, WP embed-code-generator.
That way you can create a simple embed code that people can just copy and paste and that way, hey, for the people that you didn’t email out, you’ll still get traffic back to your site because all these people are linking, they’re sharing it, right, because some will link to it, some will share it, but it gets more people to your site.
They can then copy and paste that imbed code.
Also, add it to their website.
We do that simple tactic on the Kiss metrics website, that’s how we got over 40, 000 backlinks just from 47 infographics.
Still works today, people are too lazy to do it.
But if you do it, you can get more links from one simple tactic.
Hence, we still produce infographics at my ad agency, Neil Patel Digital, because they’re that effective.
