There are two methods of link prospecting.
First, use Google queries. Enter them in scrapebox to get thousands of links. Then filter. Check DA, DR, ahref traffic with ahrefs. Find these websites emails with email hunter. And send mass emails with Gmass –> very easy for scale link building.
Second, reverse engineering (can use the shotgun skyscraper). This takes much time. You have to manually check your competitors for the type of backlinks they get. You can use link intersects between 2 competitors to find the same websites that link to your competitors (these sites are more likely to link to you)
- Guest Posting.
- Scale guest posting opportunities.Use search queries with scrapebox. Gmass emails a list of post asking if they accept guest posting –> filter a number of sites for before offering gp ideas.
- Reverse engineer the competitors to know which sites are easy to get links to.
- Sponsored GP. Should be done after sending gp several times –> asking if they accept sponsored GP
- Infographic link building.
- Use search queries. Run with scrapebox to find “keyword” + infographic (queries like this) to find infographic link opportunities.
- Reverse engineer popular infographic to find which sites link to them. Create a similar infographic like that, and email the website owners.
- Broken link building. Scrape broken links with Scrapebox.
- Use queries to search for resources links, asking for a link add.
- Check expired domains. Use scrapebox? Using ahrefs to extract backlinks. Then write a similar post on your site –> email, asking for backlinks.
- Link building to every post (the shotgun skysraper). Make an awesome post. Search for related posts on the internet. Check their backlinks. Find the emails and outreach for every post for your site.
- Forum & Group participation. Be active in the targeted group in your niche. Spend 15-30′ a day talk, discuss with the users. After a while, occasionally drop a link but still contribute to the conversation.
- Social Media Link building. Search for related topics. Email those who share the topic you wrote on your site. Find their email, and outreach them for sharing, add a link (if they have a website)
