Four Effective Tools of Analysis
Using a Backlink Checker On Baron Von Blaglink’s Blog
Sir Linksworthy’s early morning stroll is interrupted by the urgent tooting of one of the ArchDuke’s renowned carrier robins.
The knight quickly unravels the feathered messenger’s scroll and reads that the Archduke is exceedingly keen to discover why Baron Von Blaglink’s blog is currently ranking number 1 for the lucrative phrase “Sapphire Clogs”.
Our diligent link builder is soon on the trail, indeed later that day he manages to scale the wall of Blaglink’s castle and is able to peer through the window of the crafty Baron’s study.
The evidence is glaring – an open parchment lying carelessly on a writing desk points to a recently secured high authority backlink from a cobbler in Whistleton.
The First Documented Case of Blogger Outreach?
The next day after a pleasant gallop to the village of Whistleton, Sir Linksworthy is able to track down the blogging cobbler.
They are soon at a table eating at a local inn, there the knight is able to chat about the merits of the Archduke’s own “Clog Blog” over a hearty steak and ale pie and a pint.
A relevant, high quality placement is soon secured with a smile and a handshake, and link building history is made. Indeed, perhaps this was the first documented account of successful blogger outreach 🙂
