The Secret to Getting Outstanding Quality Backlinks
Discover how you can quickly gain access to high-value sources for potential backlinking partnerships that will drive more traffic to your MSP website.
As an MSP owner, you know the value of website traffic. It's the best way to attract new customers who need your products and services.
You may have a robust content strategy and a great website, but are you doing the right things to boost your search engine results?
One of the most effective ways to climb in the search rankings is to have a solid strategy for backlinks. The more backlinks you have on high-value sites, the more it helps your ranking.
""Quality backlinks are important as part of your SEO strategy, along with great content, to boost your MSP in the search rankings and beat your competition when it comes to Google search," noted Stuart Crawford, founder and CEO of Ulistic, the nation's leading MSP marketing firm.
But sometimes figuring out how to get backlinks is elusive. Fortunately, we have an approach that gets you access to valuable potential partner sites quickly.
"Backlinks are especially valuable for SEO because they represent a 'vote of confidence' from one site to another," notes a recent Moz.com article. "In essence, backlinks to your website are a signal to search engines that others vouch for your content."
How Do You Get More Backlinks?
You're going to use several third-party services to assist. The first is www.data-miner.io. Data Miner is an effective tool to scrape information from a Google search results page or another website. Create an account and be sure to set Search Settings to 100 to get a full page of search rankings.

Once the search results are up, activate the Data Miner Chrom extension. Click on the Public button at the top of the app and you'll get a list of extraction options. You want to choose Google Search Results -- Get All Links [YEAR}. Bookmark it for future reference and click the Run button.
