Our backlink philosophy
The goal is to get as many high-quality, natural backlinks as possible. The important distinction is that the backlinks are natural. Many SEO companies pay for backlinks, which may help temporarily in the short term but lead to problems long-term.
One of the best ways to get high-quality, natural backlinks is through creating valuable content that your target audience will love reading.
Many businesses put too much emphasis and money behind backlinks. One of the quickest ways to improve your SEO is through content. By optimizing your current content and creating new content (which is often much cheaper than backlinks, which average ~ $400 per backlinks), you’ll see quicker results.
