Competitive Backlink Audit/Analysis and Private Linking Strategy Sessions with Eric Ward


Did the Pandas or Penguins get your attention?

If your content is truly linkworthy, I can help you. Naturally. Natural link building sounds like an oxymoron, because for something to be natural it means it happened completely on it’s own, right? Not exactly. There are safe ways to accelerate the process of obtaining the links your site should naturally expect to get, and there are ways to implement content strategies that facilitate and speed the process of obtaining natural links. That’s where my two decades of experience come into play.  My site is proof my methods work.

My Linking Analytics and Strategy Sessions includes proprietary link audits, plus linking strategy reports created specifically for your site by me. Also included is ninety minutes by phone one to one with live screen sharing, recorded so you can watch it again later.

Eric’s process is unique and effective, and was a wise investment considering the outstanding results we obtained

Higher search rank is the residue of great content properly linked. I know what works and why, and I can analyze your site and industry link profile using my own proprietary tools and show you whether or not your site is on the right linking path or not.

Most sites are wasting time and money on linking tactics destined to fail. There’s a reason I have never used the tactics most link builders do.  Their tactics don’t produce merit based earned links. Among the techniques I will not and have never used are mass directory submissions, mass article marketing, link networks, link farms, anchor text requests or any other manipulated tactic.

Natural link building is not just about search rank either. If it was, the first three years of my link building career would have been pointless, because Google didn’t exist yet.  On the other hand, there’s a reason I’ve earned the reputation I have. See this search result for Link Building Expert Eric Ward. I don’t and have never thought of myself as an SEO. What I do is more related to public relations, marketing, promotion, and of course, links.

My linking strategy sessions are conducted live by phone plus utilizing either Skype or GoToMeeting screen sharing. The sessions include me performing proprietary link analytics for your site and your industry niche, then using those findings to produce a linking strategy fully customized for your site.  This link building strategy can then be used by you for in house link building, or RFP/proposal creation.

Sessions include…

100% custom designed for your site, includes Competitive Linking Analytics for your site, your industry, and competing sites within your industry niche. 

Creation of two custom linking strategy reports created by me just for your site, and ninety minutes live by phone with me to discuss my findings and suggestions.

- Live video / screen sharing
- I present a set of linking strategies designed just for your site
- Custom Reports:

1). Proprietary Competitive Link Audit

More about the Private Linking Strategy Session…

For me, link building is more public relations than SEO, and linking analytics, link analysis, and content publicity is not a fad, it’s a way of life. Part science, part math, part art. Since I’ve been building links since before Google existed, I have a different perspective than every other link builder working today. I’ve been creating long term linking strategies, building links and teaching others about creating publicity for web content for years, for some of the most well known web sites in the world, as well as for small topical sites known only where they need to be known to succeed.

The obligatory search result confidence builder…
Although I don’t put much emphasis on search rankings alone, I know many of you reading this do. So let’s have a look.

Organic rankings for for the search term: link building expert

Google search result
Yahoo search result
bing search result search result

Hopefully my site is somewhere in the top 3 for the above engines. At times I’ve ranked 1st on all of them at the same time. More often it fluctuates. For me the larger question is how can a one-man business like mine outrank thousands of much larger companies all over the world who also want to rank high for that term? The answer is pretty obvious; I know what works and why.

For those of you who like your search results a little more granular, click any of the following terms to see if I can be found at Google: linking strategy session | linking strategies newsletter | link bait strategies | link building training | custom linking strategies

Some of these rankings are great, some are good, some vary day to day. I try not to fret over it. That said, my rankings give me a unique insight into the engines, and allow me use what I know for my client’s sites. I have experienced based knowledge of what your site’s inbound link profile or link portfolio needs to look like, because my site and my clients have it. This does not mean I can replicate my inbound link profile for every site. It means I can show you what you need to do to create your own industry specific version of an inbound link profile that will help you.

If your content is truly linkworthy, I can help you get where you want to go.

Chasing butterflies…

Most people are after links for the wrong reasons and from the wrong sites. There are many companies selling linking services that are 100% worthless. Terms like Link Popularity, Pagerank, hubs, authorities, anchor text, etc. are used as if they are the all that matter. Marketers obsess over concepts like Pagerank sculpting, siloing, no-follow, triangulation, link architecture, link equity, redirects, and IP Blocks. Most of these terms do nothing more than give you a false sense of security, or more accurately, insecurity. As if by giving something a name will make it easier to understand, and by extension easier to sell to you.

I know what works, what matters, what doesn’t, and why, and I’ll put my knowledge about content linking and online publicity up against anyone in the world.

A practitioner’s approach…

I work with sites of any size, as long as the content is meritorious. I’ve worked with sites as large as and, and as small as I do this all day every day. I’m hands on. I do not farm my work out, I do it myself. I identify the best targets. I request the links. I send the site announcements. I know what it takes to get coverage and links in the right places from the right people. That’s why people hire me.  I know what the hell I’m doing and guarantee it.

I also train agencies, PR firms, site developers and individuals in the art of link building and online publicity. I’ve spoken at over 150 search marketing conferences, and my articles about linking and online publicity appear all over the world.  My linking services are mentioned in college courses about web marketing, and Websight magazine named me one of the world’s 100 most influential people on the web.

I mention all this to give you confidence, but I’m not foolish enough to believe my own press clippings.  I do know that if someone as respected as Danny Sullivan wants to call me the “World’s authority on linking”, I must have a clue or two.

Let me help you… 

I’ll use my own proprietary analysis/tools to examine the inbound links to your site and competitor sites. I’ll create and deliver to you a linking strategy developed for your site. I’ll spend 2 hours on the phone with you, discussing the findings and teaching you how to implement them.

That’s 90 minutes by phone plus a linking strategy you can take action on immediately.
