Natural Link Building: Build Quality Backlinks The Natural Way

Natural link building is the cornerstone of SEO.

While it is true that there are plenty of ways to boost your site’s performance, natural link building will always be part of the equation.

But what is natural link building?

This post will explain what makes natural link building your best option for off-page SEO campaigns.

Natural Link Building Defined

In simple terms, natural links are backlinks that were acquired organically. 

And to qualify as an organic backlink, the URL should have no tracking parameters and must have been used without being paid for. You also cannot use monetization tools or third-party services to acquire the backlinks.

You want users to see your content, find it useful, and link to it because they know your page brings tremendous value to their audience.

That is why most organic links have high-quality content that’s full of useful information. 

And if you’re thinking of writing a guest blog post and build links to your website, then too bad. Backlinks, in this case, are considered unnatural links.

What Are Unnatural Backlinks?

Speaking of unnatural links, what are they? And how are they different from natural link building?

One sure sign that a link isn’t organic is when you see a tracking parameter in the URL. For those who are unfamiliar, it looks something like this:

  • Save

The extra string of characters at the end of the URL helps webmasters keep track of the performance of a specific page. 

So when someone adds URLs like this one to a page, search engines and users can quickly tell that the backlink is a deliberate choice.

But outside of tracking parameters, there are other ways of inserting unnatural backlinks to a post that are not as obvious.

Sponsored content usually have paid backlinks. If done well, a backlink would be unnoticeable and unintrusive. 

For example, Netflix sponsored an article from the Wall Street Journal about the proliferation of cocaine.

The reason? To promote its web television series Narcos.

There are no links within the article itself, and the reporting is as expected from a reputable news organization.

  • Save

But right in the footer is a link pointing to Netflix. 

Therefore, the quality of the report and the subtlety of the link don’t matter. This is blatantly an unnatural link.

Link exchanges—where two parties agree to link to one another—is also considered unnatural linking despite no money changing hands.

Is There Such a Thing as a Semi-Natural Link?

Yes, there is.

Remember when we talked about tracking parameters? Well, there are times when users would mindlessly copy the URL—tracking parameters and all—and insert it on the article they’re working on.

So now, there’s this gray area where the link is organic by nature, but the tracking code says otherwise. This is what’s referred to as a semi-natural link.

One possible way around this is having your URL with tracking parameters redirect to a version that doesn’t have it. 

So by the time that the page loads, the URL wouldn’t have extra characters that would raise any flags.

Good vs. Bad Backlinks

When aiming to get natural backlinks, you need to know the difference between good and bad backlinks.

Understand that a good or bad backlink in this scenario is not referring to the quality of the site where you find the link. 

A good backlink could come from a site that’s not performing well in the SERPs. And a lousy backlink could come from a high-DA (domain authority) page.

How is that possible?

Well, it all depends on the type of SEO you’re doing. Here’s an example:

If you’re trying to rank for a small town in the U.S., then it wouldn’t make sense to get backlinks from a high-quality site for an Asian website.

On the other hand, getting backlinks from a low-traffic site that caters to the residents of your place of business might be right for business.

However:

Google’s algorithm is sophisticated and involves a lot of factors. So while the scenario above is real for the most part, it isn’t always guaranteed.

That’s why you should always take a good look at your backlinks, observe how they’re affecting you, and disavowing only those that hurt your ranking.

The Ideal Natural Backlink

Other people will always link to a resource that’s helpful to their readers. This is also the case for posts that provide data that you can’t find elsewhere.

So if you’re drafting a post, consider the following points:

  • Write a post that people would happily share with friends on social media. A great piece of content is something users will have no problem sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and other social media pages. So after writing a post, go over it to check if it’s something people would likely share online.
  • Connect with your audience on an emotional level. It’s not enough for you to provide factual information. You also need to make your post connect on other levels. Share stories that would get your point across better. Make your audience laugh, cry, or get mad (whatever is appropriate for the post).
  • Provide a solution to a problem that currently has none. Sites would cite sources that have all the answers. So when you research a topic, see what others are saying and provide answers to questions that your competitors have failed to address.
  • Find an angle that other resources have not taken into account. When you discuss a topic one too many times, find a different perspective. This will help keep your post relevant and worth linking to.
  • Explain complicated ideas in an easy-to-digest manner (use humor if necessary). Even if you’re able to provide relevant data, it’s pointless unless you’re ready to explain it in a way that anyone could understand. 
  • Promote your posts so people can find them faster. People can’t link to you if they can’t find your content. So promoting posts is not even a question; it’s a necessity if you want to get a quality backlink.

The Importance of Link Building

Natural link building is the foundation of SEO. When search engines crawl a page, it goes beyond the content of the page. It also looks at how many pages are linking to yours. 

Google has emphasized the importance of links for quite some time. In this 2010 video, Matt Cutts (then an engineer in the quality group at Google) went into how links (and other factors) help with online searches.

Fast-forward to today, Google still emphasises the importance of backlinks, link juice, and referral traffic as seen in this updated video.

And remember, this was uploaded years after all the Google algorithm updates they’ve made.

So yes, natural links are essential because they help Google assess the quality of your page. And if you pass, there’s a good chance it will land you on page one of the SERPs for the term you want to rank for.

Natural Link Building Benefits

Outside of appearing on the SERPs, what are the advantages of natural links?

Here are a few:

  • Increased Site Traffic — The more users see you on the results pages, then the more people would be able to visit your page. And more users can discover your pages if you’re linked to by websites that they already frequently visit.
  • Better Social Media Presence — If people see other sites quoting you, then they’re more likely to share your pages on their social media accounts. This is especially true if you have graphics or videos that are easy to digest on social media platforms like infographics.
  • Loyal Followers — When people quote you regularly, they will view you as an expert in your field. Therefore, more of them will begin visiting your site to see what you have to say. This is good, especially if you’re trying to be an authoritative figure in your niche or industry.

Link Building Case Studies

Below, you will see link building examples with results.

Junto, an online marketing company, has released a link building case study. Here, it discussed how they were able to increase its client’s organic traffic by 55.9% over three months.

  • Save

The company did use guest blogging as part of their strategy. But they mostly relied on white hat SEO practices to accomplish their goal.

It performed keyword research and discovered relevant topics that their client’s competitors are not writing about. So Junto proceeded with generating high-quality content that they knew its target audience would be happy to read.

It also spent a significant amount of its time, boosting the client’s overall backlink profile.

In the end, it was able to get 43 backlinks from 15 different websites.

There’s also an experiment that was done by David Farkas of The Upper Ranks

Over a year, he posted articles on his site (in the medical/healthcare space). For six months, he developed 26 high-quality content and spent the rest of the year waiting to see if traffic would come in.

The catch is that he did not do anything to promote the pieces. He didn’t build any backlinks.

The site had nearly zero traffic.

It was at this point when David decided to make his posts more suited to natural link building. Specifically, he added linkable assets. Then he did some outreach to parties that may be interested in the content he had to offer.

The result?

He was able to get backlinks from over 100 domains.

  • Save

David’s traffic skyrocketed.

  • Save

The site’s organic traffic increased by as much as 2,000%.

Writing Content That’s Worth Linking To

As you may have realized by now, you need to create a solid article if you want people to link to you organically.

So how do you do that?

It’s not as complicated as you think. But it does take a lot of effort. Your posts need to have a clear purpose.

Here are a few tips that could help with that.

Do Competitor Research

You could start by looking at your competitors and analyze their link profiles. This would give you an idea of how they’re attracting links naturally.

You can do this using SEO tools like SEMrush.

  • Save

SEMrush isn’t free, so it is something you need to think about investing in. However, the data it delivers helps many businesses develop the kind of content they need to prosper.

It is worth considering.

And if you need more information on how it can help you, we’ve written a post on using SEMrush to spy on your competitors that you should check out.

Write High-Quality Posts

Once you have your data, you’ll know what topics to shoot for. But writing mediocre content won’t do. You need content that would surpass your competition.

Let’s say you’re writing a blog post. To gain any traction, it needs to be the best. This means the article should be long-form. But don’t just write a long post for the hell of it. It needs to have substance.

You also need to invest in captivating media content. Only use images and videos that are relevant and useful. And if necessary, you can also use screenshots, graphs, slideshows, quotes, and even user-generated content.

With great content, people will link back to you without the need for anything in return.

Decide What Type of Post You Should Publish

Another thing to consider is what type of post you should be publishing. Content doesn’t always have to be in blog form. 

You have a ton of options.

  • Interviews — You can talk to people your audience would be interested in. Then you can transcribe the conversation to make it easier for people to browse through. If you want an example of this post type in action, check this interview with Aires Loutsaris by SpeedBoostr.
  • Save
  • Infographics — Infographics are easy to share. Plus, you can display a lot of information that users could easily digest because everything is visually appealing. It’s not that hard to do. There are so many sites now dedicated to helping those who don’t have graphic design knowledge. Check out Canva’s Free Infographic Maker.
  • Save
  • Collaborations — You can try working with another person in your space to come up with a post that’s worth sharing. It could be an experiment you run together or a study where you pull both of your resources and merge them into one. It will be good exposure for both parties involved. You can even work with some of your loyal readers.
  • Case Studies — Case studies generate a lot of natural links because you’re giving information that other people don’t have access to. When users write posts and need proof to make their argument, they’ll pull case studies to back up their claims.
  • Resource Posts — Resource posts are content that has links to articles, tools, and tutorials that users would need to expand their knowledge. Having all the resources on one page is a good reason to be backlinked. Creative Boom, for example, has this great resource page for graphic designers.
  • Tutorials — Do you know how to do something proficiently? Write about it. People who would find your tutorial useful would link to it when they talk about it in their respective domains.
  • Reviews — Reviews are big on sites like YouTube. But they’re also just as significant in the blogging world. You can review products or services that people won’t readily have access to. Sites in the gaming genre have done a lot of reviews for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that people link to in their posts.
  • Save
  • Event Coverage — If you attend conferences a lot, then you could publish recaps of what has taken place during the event. Moz has an annual event called MozCon. And one of the attendees took the opportunity to post an update on what happened on the first day of MozCon 2019.
  • Save
  • Insider Scoops — Got the latest news about something your audience profoundly cares about? Then give them insider knowledge. Insider news is often quoted by bloggers, mainly if you’re covering a topic that their audience is excited by. This post by Tom’s Guide released leaks about the Galaxy S11, a phone that many users can’t wait to get a hold of.
  • Save

How to Build Quality Backlinks

Writing a high-quality post will only get you so far. There are plenty of ways to build quality backlinks.

Let’s explore your other options.

Use Social Media

Social media can do a lot for the promotion of a post. Infographics perform well on Pinterest. And there’s a demand for entrepreneurial articles on LinkedIn. 

  • Save

Tools like Buzzsumo will tell you what kind of content users are sharing on social media. Do some research and base your content around what people are talking about.

Be Consistent

Not only do you need to create high-quality posts, but you also need to push them out consistently.

Your tone also needs to be the same throughout your site.

This is because users will expect the same tone once they get used to your style of writing. Also, your post should be free of typographical errors. 

Use a free tool like Grammarly to review your posts before publishing. It’s easy to miss mistakes that can turn off your audience.

Repurpose Old Content

Do you have an old post that’s performing well? Then it’s probably worth updating it.

Or:

Convert the post into another format. You can use it to make videos, podcasts, or infographics. Since you already have the foundation laid out, converting should be easy. 

Old posts could generate more backlinks for you. And you won’t need to hire a writer to make it happen since the content is already there.

Publish Free Resources

Earlier, we talked about creating your resource page and how to get backlinks from it. But what if you want to be in someone else’s resource page?

That is possible.

You can repurpose your old content or start a new one then convert it into a free resource. For example, you turn a post into an e-book. 

When users find your free e-book, there’s a chance they will include it in a resource list.

Conclusion

Natural link building is a process that every SEO needs to know about. 

If you want to start ranking on search engines and need to increase your organic traffic, use this guide to get more backlinks to your site.

And remember that the best way to get backlinks is by publishing fantastic content.

  6. Hi Ankit,
    An awesome data backed post from you. Building back links is really necessary at a time when all others are building it. As Matts Cutts said, our links should be natural and this guide provides a natural way of building links.
    Hoping to see more such posts from you 🙂

  7. Hi Ankit

    A well crafted and well-thought post. A few tips are traditional while rest of the other are quite unique and you must have done a lot of hard work to research them.

    Another commendable aspect of the post is that a few initial tips you have elaborated with further tips and tricks to make it quite easy for readers to fully follow them.

    Getting natural back links to your blog has now become a heck of the task especially after the rule of quality over quantity. Now simply insertion of url of your posts to hundred of online places won’t give you the desired results.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this post quite attractive and informative.

    really informative + brief post about building natural backlinks. Its important to build backlinks to rank a site faster but the matter is that how to build them? And you described 20 ways to build them thats good- Keep rocking 😀

    Regards,
    Hammad

  9. Hi Ankit,

    What an awesome share and I’m honored that you included one of my links here as well. Very smart of you and this is definitely the “natural” way to go about building links.

    I remember my first experience with this and I was taught that the natural way was to interlink everything together. Of course things have definitely changed over time and I think I just got tired of listening to all these people giving their opinions and said to heck with it. I just started doing things more naturally like you’re sharing here and that’s when I really started to see things pick up.

    I mean we don’t all write about the same stuff yet we want our readers to learn right! So linking to other’s posts or doing what I share and telling my readers about great content I’ve run across is the best way to achieve this.

    All of your tips are great here and I think that if people just focus on doing things naturally and although it does take time it’s what will pay off in the end.

    Thank you again for including me here and have a wonderful week.

    ~Adrienne

  10. Hi Ankit Sir,
    This is a great article. Getting a backlinks may not such big issue but getting a quality backlinks is serious task. I have already read some article regarding this topic and this article is totally different from them. Almost every method you have shared are unique.

    Thanks Bro for this wonderful share.

  11. Hi Ankit,

    Create and connect. The 2 C’s underscore a few of your tips. I figure if you want to get natural backlinks giving something is part of the equation. Give value. Link to authority bloggers.

    Earlier today I received a quality backlink from an authority blogger. 3 weeks ago I linked in to his site. One hand washes the other. Give freely to receive easily.

  12. Hi Ankit,

    I didn’t aware of “Reverse Guest Posting” technique, it certainly looks a good idea to get quality content. But I have concern here, if your blog is new then how would you convince a good author/blogger to write for your blog?

  13. Hello Ankit,
    I have not heard of “Reverse Guest Posting” technique before now, surely I perceive it is a good idea for getting quality content housed in your blog. Like me, my blog is pretty new so how can my blog attract quality authors?

    Please take a look at my blog and tell me what you think i should do more, i will be very grateful sir.

  14. Ankit, great tips – I love #2. I love the idea of using a call to action button for this one. I also liked Ryan’s comment about giving freely. I truly believe in that as well. #16 is kinda funny – where did you find that research from? It does make sense I must say 🙂
    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your weekend there!

  15. hiiii Ankit sir…
    i am an IT Graduate students and trying to learn important think in the SEO, i am working in the SEO company, Every day i have to do quality & organic back link so it is good information. I will try to follow all the guide line which you mentioned thanks….

  17. Ankit, You gave a backlink to findmyfacebookid.com 😀 . This tutorial is very informative and it’s such a high content that people will obviously link to this page. Everything is content and what you are offering. Thanks for such a nice explanation.

  20. supreeth bharadwaj

    one of the most wanted and delightful post… well coming to the point newbies take backlinking as a spamming process, which actually is as beautiful as planting a seed and making it grow into a tree from a sapling,well spamming in this case is indeed planting weeds! well this post does make a beuriful garden of backinks for us
    thanks a lot ankit 🙂 wonderful tips
    regards

    • Hi Supreeth,

      I liked the way you explained the backlinks. New bloggers do whatever they can do get backlinks because they told getting huge number of backlinks can improve their search rankings. But this is not the actual case.

      They must learn about building quality backlinks. I love the editorial backlinks most and I recommend my readers to work on them.

      BTW, what do you think about Editorial backlinks?

      Do you think they have higher impact on our rankings?

      Looking forward to hear your thoughts.
      -Ankit

      • supreeth bharadwaj

        I am glad,

        Well coming to the point, yes editorial links are the best ever way to gain a natural backlink.

        But I think guest posting on high authority blogs can make back links which are effective but guest posting on a low authority blog can otherwise make low quality backlink causing a black mark!

        Indeed it can also help us build good ranking, and help increase our DA (Domain Authority) easily.

        Regards!
        -Supreeth

  21. Thanks for the informative post. I’m trying my best to build backlinks, this is gonna help me a lot. 🙂

      Welcome to my blog. I’m happy to know that you found my content helpful. Wish you good luck with your blog.

      Yeah, that one is funny right?

      What do you think about that strategy? Does gender really matters in that case?

  22. Hello Ankit,

    Due to my hectic tasks, I missed to leave my comment on this awesome post. Today, you shared this post again and thus headed towards it.

    I’d say that it is a great posts for bloggers to build natural backlinks. Link building should be done carefully to avoid getting penalized by Google. There are lot of ways to get backlinks genuinely and yes, I do agree with your every point. Guest blogging, blog commenting, social networking and conducting interviews are the good ways to create backlinks. I really liked your idea of generating backlinks through Alexa, blogger outreach and republishing the viral social posts. I’ll try to implement them. Thanks for writing such a great post for us, keep writing.

    • Hello Nirmala Mam,

      I appreciate that you found time from your busy schedule to comment on my post. I just noticed that you shared it too. Thanks for that 🙂

      Yes, all these are well working methods for me. Specially the Alexa one. I got featured on many blogs, got interviewed on many blogs and all those are high quality natural backlinks for my blog.

      Reverse guest blogging is also a great way to not only get backlinks but to build relations with other like minded bloggers too.

      I believe in writing linkable content. Content which people would love to share and link from their blogs as a good resource. Those backlinks have the more power then any other type of backlinks. I say them as editorial backlinks and I love them most 🙂

      What you think about it?

  23. Yeah, good idea bro. Bloggers always search for authority blog to link out their blog posts. Your blog is having killer Alexa rank and this trick would give benefits to progress it. All the best, glad that these ways to build backlinks are working for you. Keep your good work 🙂

    • Absolutely right mam. I also link to authority blogs and if I’ll make my blog authoritative, I’ll also get more natural backlinks. It works great.

      Actually linking to other blogs help us too to build healthy connections with great bloggers. They link to us in return and this is how we get more natural backlinks, more genuine readers and more link juice which is a great indicator for Alexa rank.

      Thanks for your revisit 🙂
