Advantages of manual purchase
Link mass should meet certain quality requirements. Choosing a web-source for hyperlinking, a webmaster usually points out the following characteristics:
- Relevance to the promoted resource.
- Geographical, language and domain characteristics.
- Monthly traffic.
- Site authority (PR).
- Domain age.
- Resource condition and general impression.
- Spam ratio.
Websites revision starts from applying a number of filters. Final selection is meant to suit the required SEO criteria and topic.
Next step is checking the resulting sites manually before final link placement. A web resource that initially seems to meet all requirements might contain errors and low-quality content, be overloaded with advertisements or the website is in a state of utter forlornness as well.
Site stocks contain web resources that meet their own particular requirements. Therefore the final selection of the highest-quality sources can only be carried out manually.
Point out that automatic link building system sometimes tolerates subject matter difference of donor sites and acceptors. It mostly happens when a stock lacks required thematic sites. To avoid any risks and use only appropriate topical platforms for link building, you should choose manual means of effective promotion.
Using a manual link building method, a webmaster controls the balance and account expenses. There is also an opportunity to check if the requested price conforms to the quality of the suggested sites. Moreover, the promotion of peculiar pages and key queries may be emphasized while managing the budget.
Automated link building systems freeze an amount of money on your balance for a payment. Accordingly, it is quite hard to ensure economic budget distribution.
Mind that sometimes systems keep on writing off money even after you have deactivated the automatic purchase mode. A possible reason for that is that a system accepts the payment to the application which was approved after project deactivation.
Suspending automated link building for SEO, make sure that you cancel all the unnecessary applications.
Link building is a flexible process which requires constant correction. Resource positions in key queries may rise and fall. Regular dynamics control lets you decide whether to enhance or to bring down the optimization of certain anchors.
Apart from query monitoring, there is a range of factors that influence the purchasing strategy. One of them is the choice of landing pages and distributing links. Another point is the ratio between anchor links, links without anchor text and commercial links within a project.
Purchase algorithm is an important aspect of external optimization. Natural link building is a gradual process. Therefore, purchasing links from stocks needs neatness, discretion and a systematic approach.
The number of links that you can buy at a time varies depending on a total link mass. The peculiarities of a certain promoted site matter as well. A business card website and a major internet shop with seven years of experience require completely different approaches. Forming an algorithm of permanent links, an SEO specialist reviews the following parameters:
- domain age and authority;
- link purchase frequency;
- maximum available link quantity to be purchased at a time;
- maximum permitted progression in purchased link quantity for a time period.
Automated link building systems imply their own algorithms. Considering that there is no universal method for different websites, it is quite complicated to figure out their effectiveness. Individual approach it the ultimate decision when choosing an algorithm.
The alternative semi-automatic method is also a good option that allows to automate application placement but permits any payments before they are approved by the account owner.
