Link Building, Baiting and Development Services
Link building is an important part of any SEO strategy as it requires time, investment and the development of powerful and effective link bait. Traditional link building methods are very ineffective, especially in competitive market places. New link building methods come via content based strategies, competitions, social media connections and more.
However, link building has to be done with caution, as Google’s evolving algorithmic updates can penalise website that actively participate in link building schemes. Assertive Media uses content and contact based strategies to build compliant links for client websites. Assertive Media offers a professional link building solution via compliant methods which are designed to attract links instead of direct link building.
Why does my website need links?Links are a fundamental part of search engine optimisation, they contribute to a domains authority and give search engines an additional way to evaluate domain trust. Link building is a complex process as the way links are accumulated, the location and placement of accumulated links and the anchor texts used all need to be done in a certain fashion (Depending on industry) to achieve successful results.
Incorrect link development tactics can lead to Google manual / site wide and partial penalties which will create search result fluctuations and poor keyword performance. Without links a website is unlikely to position well for target keywords (unless they are highly niche). Links combined with high quality content and good on site structure are the perfect recipe for search engine success.

How link building will help your business
Link building will help your business indirectly by contributing towards your websites positions in natural search. Increased organic positions will help to generate a larger return on investment, so links are a key part of the strategy.
Link baiting will also increase brand awareness between bloggers, industry contacts and web visitors. Putting link bait in the right place can lead to a large increase in brand awareness. Here at Assertive Media we do both.
Is link building safe after Panda, Penguin & Hummingbird?
Yes, despite it being widely disputed. Link building can be compliant with Google providing that links are not built in such a way that they are seen to be in the interests of ranking. Link building has to follow a number of protocols to remain a safe option including link building speed over time, anchor text usage, website IP neighbourhoods, relevancy between websites, linking website content update frequency and much much more.
Assertive Media builds clean, compliant links using various content strategies, social media, infographics, PR and other channels. All links are vetted and any that are not perceived to be of value will be nofollowed or disavowed to remain compliant.
How are good links defined?
A good link is defined as a link that comes from a reputable and respected website / source / article / content. Links from respected websites or highly authoritive websites carry with them an element of trust, which is needed to improve rankings regardless of speculation. A good link is a link that comes from a page or a domain where it has existed for a long period of time, has a reputable content base, a reputable external link profile and has maintained frequent content updates and theme integrity over a long period of time.
I've heard websites are penalised for link building?
Although this is true, websites are penalised for linking in such a way that it is purposely engineered to improve their rankings, this practice is not tolerated by search engines like Google. Instead, link building and website link growth has to appear natural, which is why we do not operate intensive link building campaigns but instead implement a link building strategy over time, which has good results.
