Frequently Asked Questions

Why is link building important?

Link building, at its core, is the process of acquiring hyperlinks from other websites to your own. It's a crucial component of any SEO strategy and plays an essential role in driving traffic, increasing visibility, and improving a website’s ranking on search engines like Google.

So why is link building important?

1. Enhances Search Engine Rankings:
One of the primary benefits of link building is its impact on search engine rankings. Search engines like Google use links to crawl the web, discovering new pages and determining how well a page should rank in their results. When your website has a high number of quality inbound links, it signals to search engines that your content is valuable and relevant, thereby improving your site's ranking. For instance, a study by Backlinko found that the number of domains linking to a page correlated with rankings more than any other factor.

2. Increases Website Authority:
Link building also helps to establish and enhance your website's authority. When other reputable sites link back to your website, it serves as an endorsement of your content's credibility and quality. This not only boosts your site's authority in the eyes of search engines but also in the perception of your audience.

3. Drives Targeted Traffic & Promotes Brand Visibility:
High-quality links from sites relevant to your industry can direct targeted traffic to your website. This isn't just any traffic; these are visitors who are likely interested in what you offer, increasing the chances of conversions. Furthermore, having your links on popular websites increases your brand's visibility and recognition.

4. Facilitates Relationship Building & Networking:
A common goal of outreach is to get a link, but there's much more to it than just this. Outreach can help you build long-term relationships with key influencers and journalists in your industry, and these relationships can mean that your business becomes highly regarded and trusted.

5. Provides Competitive Edge:
Finally, a robust link building strategy can give you an edge over your competitors. If two websites have similar content, search engines tend to favor the site with more quality inbound links in their rankings.

Link building is far more than just an SEO tactic. It's a crucial element of online marketing, contributing to better search engine rankings, increased website authority, and enhanced brand visibility. By investing in a solid link building strategy, you can create a strong online presence and set your website up for long-term success.

What is the difference between white-hat and black-hat links?

White-hat and black-hat links refer to the ethical and unethical practices, respectively, used in search engine optimization and link building.

White-Hat Links:
White-hat links are created following the guidelines set by search engines. They are ethical practices aimed at improving a website's search engine rankings while also providing value to users. These links are typically earned through quality content, user engagement, and legitimate outreach strategies. For instance, using HARO (Help a Reporter Out) to provide valuable insights to reporters is an acceptable white-hat technique.

The goal of white-hat link building is to create a sustainable online presence that delivers relevant content and provides a positive user experience. It's about building trust and authority over time, which can lead to higher visibility, increased traffic, and more conversion opportunities.

Black-Hat Links:
On the other hand, black-hat links involve manipulative practices that go against search engine guidelines. The aim is to quickly improve a site's search engine rankings, often without regard for providing value to users. Examples of black-hat methods include participating in link schemes or networks, using hidden links, and keyword stuffing.

While these techniques might provide a short-term boost in rankings, they carry significant risks. Search engines like Google have sophisticated algorithms to detect such activities. If caught, websites can be penalized, which may result in decreased rankings, loss of traffic, or even removal from search engine results altogether.

At Reporter Outreach, we only engage in white-hat link building strategies designed to give your website long-term growth and sustainability.

Do you write the content for each pitch?

Yes, we have a team of highly-skilled, native copywriters who conduct extensive research and write compelling copy.

Additionally, all of our content is passed through Grammarly and Copyscape to ensure the content is grammatically correct and free of plagiarism.

If you prefer to write the content yourself, we guide you through our process and optimize each piece of content for the best chance of getting published.

How long does it take to start seeing published articles?

For HARO link building campaigns, on average, it takes 3 weeks of consistent HARO outreach to start seeing published articles and high quality backlinks.

In some cases, it can be sooner, or longer, depending on the industry. We're at the mercy of each publisher's editorial calendar.

The key to successful link building is to build a consistent pipeline of HARO outreach for relevant requests. The work we do in month 1 typically yields links in month 2, and so on.

We do, however, see HARO links in a matter of a few days on occasion. We constantly monitor for mentions of your band using Google Alerts and other tools.

How do you guarantee links? 

Based on the package that you select, we guarantee that we will get your specified number of articles published with a link included.

However, we can't guarantee placement on a specific website, as we're at the mercy of each journalist and their editor.

We keep working until all of your links have been published, and we only count websites that are above DR 40.

If we get your brand featured and the site only mentions your brand without a link, that is considered free press for your brand and is not counted toward your link building purchase.

How do syndications work? 

Content syndication is the process of distributing an article to multiple websites. This can help increase exposure for your content and attract new readers, an added benefit of HARO link building.

As an example, let's say we get published on the media outlet, GoBankingRates, which has a DR of 80, and has monthly organic traffic of 2.4M.

The article gets syndicated to Yahoo, which has a DR of 92, and has monthly organic traffic of 61.8M.

Awesome, right? 

In terms of how this is applied to your purchase, only 1 syndication per article is counted when the site is above DR 70.

This ensures top-tier HARO placements, which typically have extraordinary monthly organic traffic, and can lead to referral traffic.

In this example, the syndication to Yahoo increased exposure 25x more than if it was only published on GoBankingRates.

What anchor text is used? 

The majority of the time, the link is branded anchor text that points back to your home page. This is out of our control, as this is the general nature of the way articles are written.

For example, the article will say something like: 

According to Johnny Appleseed, CEO of, "the best apples are Fuji apples."

However, if you have robust blog content, we can sometimes reference a blog post to support what we're writing in our pitch. In some cases, a journalist will link back to your blog post.

In this example, if you had some content about Fuji apples, we would try using that in our HARO pitch.
