How To Build Links To Niche Websites (Part 1)

Google’s generally advice to website owners over the years has been to “create good unique content” and you will be rewarded. We all know this to be bogus – and if you didn’t know this by now – welcome to my blog. For at least the next several years we’ll continue to see updates to the Google algorithm and everyone will continue to sound the “death of SEO” alarm, but what will continue to be among the most important ranking factors will be the number and quality of links pointing to your website. Because after all…

It’s not the quality of the product that matters most, but the marketing behind it


That philosophy rings true in most markets, but especially with niche websites. No matter how good your website is about dual flush toilets, no one cares enough about what you’re writing to link to you. The same can be said for millions of other topics that can be used as the basis for building a niche website on and that’s where these article marketing tools can help.

Now, if you’ve spent any time reading blogs about how to make money with websites then the first part of this blog post has probably not come as a surprise. Most everyone understands the importance of links but what most people don’t know is how to actually build links in a scalable way. The most common answer to this problem has always been to outsource link building and/or use software to help. Since I’ve had success with both of these solutions I thought I’d take it a step further and document most of the major software based article marketing / link building services in a public case study.

The goal of this case study is to find the top article marketing tools for link building based on data I collect.

What Services Will I Use?

Unique Article Wizard - $67 per month
My Article Network – $67 per month
Build My Rank – Starts at $59 per month (10 free links trial with no credit card) – Sadly I just got an email a few days ago they were closing new user registration so I’ll have to hold off on Build My Rank for a while.
ArticleRanks - Starts at $39 per month
Distribute Your Articles - Starts at $99 per quarter
Traffic Kaboom - Starts at $197 per quarter
SEO Link Monster – Starts at $47 per month and $147 per month after that
Digi Traffic Accelerator – $19.95 per month (currently half off)

My monthly bill for just link building services will be roughly $500 a month (and I might add a few more services if there is enough demand in the comments). I will be using affiliate links during this study while referencing the tools I use so I appreciate the support when you buy through my links and as an extra bonus I plan to create and give away instructional videos where I’ll show you the best way to maximize your results with the software I find is best that you can watch yourself or hand over to your VA’s so they can do the work for you (just another way of saying thanks for the support). I’m doing this study because link building in general (let alone software assisted link building) is something that I’ve found most people don’t understand so I fully expect this to be one of the most popular case studies I share on this blog so don’t be afraid to ask questions.

What Other Expenses Will I Have?

I’ll be paying for a few dozen domain names, TextBroker.com for some of the content creation and using my full time VA to help with setting up the websites and writing some of the content etc. but I’ll be the one running the software tools for this study so that I can be absolutely sure everything is done the way I want it to be.

Total monthly expenses should run me roughly $1,000 per month, but again I’m spending my money and (in some cases wasting my time) so you don’t have to. You don’t need all of these tools listed above. At most you’ll only need one or two of these services – only if – you’re really interested in building out niche websites as a business model as opposed to going for a more authority focused model without building links through software etc. In that case, stay tuned for a follow up blog post where I cover other link building alternatives.

How I Will Conduct This Experiment?

I’ve thought about this for quite a while and I’ve looked at other experiments and I’ve discovered the best way to do this is to focus on three key areas:

1. The number of backlinks indexed from each service
2. The page rank for each of these backlinks from each service
3. The keyword rankings I get from using these services

I’ll be using ahrefs tool for backlink analysis, but if you want me to check out another program simultaneously for this case study let me know in the comments below. I’ll look at these three criteria over a time period of at least 90 days – so I expect to spend at least $3,000 on this experiment. I’m going to be buying brand new domains with a plan to launch the case study March 1st so I’ll have all of the domains and keywords picked out ahead of time.

In rating the tools I’ll not only looking at the above factors but I’ll also be looking at how easy it is to use the tools as well. If there are two tools that provide roughly the same results but one takes less time and is less confusing to use then I’ll be recommending that one instead.

Overall Summary

The results of this experiment should provide a lot of helpful data for those of you interested in building backlinks to your websites so I’m pretty excited about getting this case study underway. Once I’ve found the best services based on my data I’ll host a webinar and walk you through the various tools I think are the best and show you more of what I learned etc. and provide video recordings for anyone who decides to buy the tools I recommend (again as just another way to say thanks for the support). My goal here is to cut through the crap and invest a lot of my own time so you don’t have to.

Please note: There is no way that I can reveal the websites, keyword choices etc. while I’m conducting the study for obvious reasons and because it opens the study to external factors (limiting variables will already be difficult enough).

If you want to make sure you get all of the case study updates join my email list here. What do you think of how I plan to conduct this case study?

Off Topic PS: Be on the lookout for an email from me early next week inviting you to a webinar where I’ll be showing off some awesome new software that’s been created to help with Amazon focused keyword research. The week after that the WordPress theme I’ve been working with on a partner on should finally be complete as well! We’ve had about a dozen beta testers helping us test it for the past several weeks.

  1. Wow Chris, that’s a ton of work you are getting yourself into. The results will be immensely appreciated by those of us without the huge budget to use all these tools.

    Thanks for putting your resources ‘out there’ to show what works.
    Showing the ease of use of these tools too will help in deciding which to run with.

    Will follow this case study really closely.

    Cheers.

One service you may find interesting is LinkAuthority – it’s a little more involved but seems like it’s worth the premium. I know you already got a lot on your plate but it’s worth taking a look at.

    1. Hey Matt, I’ve read other studies and I’ve seen some good things said about these different services and often times people end up recommending one over the other (in opposition to each other) so I’m just really interested in seeing if the reason for the mixed results is because those bloggers had something to gain by recommending one over the other or not.

      We shall see… :D

  10. Chris,

    This case study looks awesome. But the only exception which I see here is all these are paid services.I agree that these services do provide excellent results but one can afford those services only if they earn money.People who are new to online marketing may not have that much money to afford.

    Can you please consider writing an exclusive article on strategies for Free Link Building ?

    Have seen this kind of article from Pat but would love to have them from your experience.

    1. The old adage is often times true – “it takes money to make money.”

      In the case of making money online I’d refine it to say…

      “it takes a little money to make money.”

      Domains + Hosting = Can’t live without

      But unless you have a true marketing plan and really unique approach towards building links to your website then it really is impossible to expect natural links to the hypothetical niche website about “dual flushing toilets”

      So I would argue (and we’ll see once this study is done) is that if you’re serious about niche websites (in particular) one or two of these tools would be difficult to live without as well (Again – only if you’re serious about niche websites specifically)

    This sounds like an awesome project. I have used(am using) a few of these programs, and I will be interested in seeing if your opinions jibe with mine. (And of course there are some that I HAVEN’T checked out yet)

    Anyhow it sounds like a great experiment and one that should produce some very useful results. I look forward to seeing how it goes.

    Is it possible to add High PR Society to your list for testing? On the fence for this service as well and would like to get your feedback on it.

    Their site is http://highprsociety.com/

    Based on your list above I’ve gotten good results using both UAW and BMR and the combination has served me well.

    Look forward to your case study updates!

  15. This is really exciting Chris. I really think the next step for all my niche sites is some serious link building using software. What is stopping me at the moment is the monthly cost and it scares me that’ll lose a lot of money. I guess I just need to take the plunge after you recommend one of these services. In the meanwhile you think it would be a good idea to get some of these services though fiverr? One off projects.

    Reply
    1. I normally have done one off packages before. But again it’s all about scalability and I think that a few of these software solutions will turn out to be good winners (at least in the niche website game)

      Reply
      1. Okay – I guess I’ll just take the plunge then and get one of these software packages and see how it works for my niche sites. Hopefully I can get myself onto page 1 of Google for some of my sites and then I’ll make my money back and be able to afford continuing to purchase these services.

        Thanks. Look forward to seeing your results.

  17. Hey Chris,

    This is going to be an awesome case study!

    I’m particularly interested in how you will go with Traffic Kaboom. I signed up to it around a month ago and the first thing that struck me is that they are a lot more strict on the quality of the spun articles that we submit. I think they actually have a human read what we post and if any synonyms are not quite right they reject the article.

    We have no chance getting anything approved there with auto-spun stuff, so i’d love to hear how you handle it.

    Cheers

    1. Hey Steve,

      What I’ll probably turn this study into is multiple reviews of all the link building services to mention nuances like you said so I’ll have the case study I finish first and I’ll write the individual reviews while I’m doing the case study to publish those after I publish the results.

  18. Hi Chris,

    Since my earlier post, I have been wondering about link diversity. Some of the services are oriented mostly towards one type of link (DTA/social links, for example). Do you think that the best approach will be a combination of services? Have you considered doing a follow-up study with combinations of the best 3 or 4 services? You could make it a WSO or by subscription-only project to help with your expenses.

    Reply
    1. Yes the best strategy is almost certainly building links from a combination of different sources, but I’m really trying to limit variables as much as possible. What I’ll probably do is a combination of a follow up case study using additional link sources and/or (if I have time) running a second case study at the same time showing the article marketing sources + other link building methods.

      If I do that later option my plan will probably be to do that to some older niche sites that I had up late last year with content, but haven’t built any links to yet.

      Also – I don’t think I have any plans of selling the information (if I did perhaps I’d do it really low priced maybe) but I’d prefer to just rely on people signing up through my affiliate links based on what I recommend to be the best.

      Reply
  19. Great project Chris! I use traffic kaboom and it works quite well, only issue is getting some articles approved which can end up time consuming.

    Can’t wait to see your results, there are plenty of good services out there but it is hard to know which will be the most efficient for yourself or VAs.

  23. Hey Chris,

    Great scott! You are ridiculous aren’t you? But seriously, thanks from everyone for taking a bullet on the massive costs of this experiment. I’m sure you’ll recoup it with all the affiliate sales, if your past content is the judge you’ll be providing great advice so I hope everyone who purchases repays you for it..

    I’ve been thinking about a link builder of some sort for a while now, I’ve just been using Fiverr and getting others to submit for me though. I wouldn’t say I’m “into” niche sites as such, but I certainly dabble.. the plan is to setup about 1 site a month, so I’m on the fence as to if something like this will be worth it for me.

    Will be reading your coming articles thoroughly…

    Oh.. one question, what are you using for keyword research? Something like Market Samurai? Or Long Tail Pro?

    1. Hey Ralph,

      I just read through some of those comments, I guess that’s why I’m not someone who is promoting these programs without trying them. I’d be more apt to call these grey-hat tactics than straight black-hat but let’s face it the goal is to game Google basically.

      Sadly I just heard BMR closed their doors to new members so I’ll have to remove them for now.

        BMR have only closed temp while they build the network out further or so the sites says)

        if you inside I think you should still include them.

        Ill say for a fact buck for buck BMR crushes the otehr guys. Its not a close call its awesome. Sure ou need to use it correctly and vary up the anchor text etc but… its worth every cent

    I just started going through all your podcasts. Great information so far.

    I’m curious, have you tried software like SE Nuke X, Xrumor, and scrape box? I’d be curious to hear a case study on those, too. When I read what these services do I often get the feeling they’re simply using these software packages.

      Reply
  27. Hi Chris,

    Hopefully, you’re buying multiple domains in the exact same niche to test these services? Or is your intention to use multiple keywords across multiple niches with different search/CPC data?

    What I’m getting at, is that it’s more useful to see if you can rank “dog training” better with BMR vs. UAW for example, by targeting BMR at dogtraining1.com and UAW at dogtraining2.com.

    It seems like you already have a plan though, so I don’t want to derail that. After working hard at it the past couple of months with my niche sites, the thing that I’ve learned is just to test, test, and test again!

    Andre

    Reply
    1. One idea I had was to pick three niches that I would test each network on using three different domain names for each link building service, but really it’s impossible to account for all variables.

      I don’t think I’ll try and target the exact same keyword but I’ll be going for the same niche, same keyword volume and same competition though.

    His approach is a bit different when it comes to how he links back to his niche site and it might be an approach you might want to try out in your case study.

  40. Hi Chris … I didn’t read through all the responses … but how about doing another experiment such as this WITHOUT spending money on anything?? (or at least a minimal as one can)?

    You mentioned you plan on spending approx $3000, plus what $500 a month for other expenses…it great that you have the resources! BUT that’s not realistic for many marketers, especially the newbies that are just starting out.

    Dont get me wrong, this should be a great case study and I am sure with your experience and resources you will succeed!!

    This case study, and if you did one with all free tools and minimal out-of-pocket expenses, would be an even better experience for your readers!!

    My point: you show someone how to do it low-cost and be successful, then another with resources showing an even greater success story … shows the benefits of scaling up!!

    Just a thought and wishing you the best!!

    1. Hey David,

      Well the point is that I’m spending several thousand dollars so that everyone reading my blog won’t have to. I’m going to find the tools worth using and then only recommend those. (I’ve never said you’d need all of the tools – at most like 1 or 2 article marketing resources)

      But this method does work for niche websites. I’ve taught one of my best friends how to make money with Adsense and he’s averaged over $1k a month using the stuff I taught him… so it does work. I’m just setting out on this experiment to find exactly which tools are best to use.

  57. Hi Chris, do these methods still work after the latest Google Penguin/Panda updates

  58. I think some of the link building tactics posted here might no longer work due to recent Penguin and Panda updates, but making quality content and semantic link building tactics would still work today.

  64. I don`t want to sound like a party pooper but if you use these tactics google will surely penalize your site. Google has put a stop to all link building software and now wants only natural links pointed to your site. thanks…

  65. Chris –About populating a new Amazon mini-site with content: If I’ve prepared, say, 6 keyword-focused information articles related to the product I’m about to promote, should I publish all 6 articles at once or over a period of time?

    1. Hey Joseph, Sadly no. This was one of the things I got side tracked on last year + shortly after posting Google owned a bunch of the networks I was going to test.

  69. Hi Chris,

    Building links to other niche websites is something we can ignore as part of SEO.
    There are also some other factors to optimize our websites or blogs such as social media promotion, guest posting etc. But links building is still quite relevant in the efforts to get high rank in the search engines.
    Thanks for sharing this useful posting.

  70. Hello Chris,

    Very nice list of tools to use for backlinking purpose.
    I have used UAW with fairly success.
    I am going to give ArticleRanks a try. I have heard good stuff about this tool.

    Cheers

  71. So I’m curious – do any of these work these days, or did Penguin render all of this pretty much dead in the water?

    Thanks much!

    1. Most of what I’m doing for SEO now I don’t talk about on the blog. Perhaps I’ll do a webinar sometime with no recording.
