43 SEO Experts Reveal The Best Link Building Techniques in 2019
If I were to predict the most popular link building technique in 2019 I would say Guest Blogs would take the top spot.
In 2018 we saw Google continue to clamp down on blackhat link building techniques with many in the SEO community reporting PBN’s losing a lot of power.
Links from authority sites continue to carry a lot of weight so people are going to be looking for any opportunity to be featured in an authority site.
While not all guest blog links are equal, when done right links from guest blogs can be acquired in a very natural way from authority sites.
Although I predict guest blogs to be the most popular method many SEO’s would continue to agree “content is king” and the truly best way to get high-quality links is through creating shareable content that others will love.

Digital Marketer Interview Series #149: Johnny Baskin
How did you start out as a marketer?
I first got started in digital marketing when I was searching for ways to promote my own websites that I had made. Eventually this led me to working with other businesses looking to answer that same question for themselves. My interest in both technology and business made digital marketing a perfect fit.
Looking back what is your hardest struggle when it came to delivering results?
The hardest struggle with delivering results is making sure that the expectations are set right from the start. I have always worked hard to make sure that we deliver on what we promised but when there is miscommunication about what was promised it can lead to disappointment. As I have gained more experience and worked with more businesses this becomes less and less of a challenge.

How A Local Business Can Improve Its Rankings
Local businesses that are looking to improve their rankings should make sure that their website and content online is very localized.
You should be mentioning the city or area that you are located in multiple times throughout your site.
I would also suggest making sure to check keyword search volumes in your specific region when first deciding which pages of your website you want to focus on and how to lay out your content properly.
Often targeting keywords with your region/city in the keyword name will be easier and produce higher quality results than more generalized keywords.
Local businesses should make sure they are getting listed on any local directories, especially directories specific to their area, this will have the two-fold effect of providing them with a backlink and also another place for potential customers to find them online.
If they don’t already have a Google My Business setup that would also be a priority to get done.
HOW TO RANK WITHOUT BACKLINKS IN 2021 – 50 SEO EXPERTS SHARE THEIR TIPS
As most SEO experts would suggest aside from backlinks I focus on on-page SEO including updating h1 tags, title tags, schema, link structure, and more.
Nowadays the SERP is getting more and more advanced and having good schema markup is becoming more important than ever before if you want to stand out.
Aside from technical changes to the site, making sure you have Google Search Console properly setup and a Google My Business is especially important for local SEO.
If you do those things your site should be pretty set to start ranking but it’s also important that your site provides a good user experience and gives people the information that they are searching for.
The natural effect of doing this will also cause you to get backlinks over time without ever deliberately building them.
The Importance Of Directories For Online Visibility
Online directories have been used by businesses for many years now to gain more exposure for relatively little work. Since online directories make it easy for users to find new businesses they tend to attract a good number of visitors that are highly interested. Getting listed in directories is typically a straightforward process and doesn’t take too much work. Directories also provide the added benefit of usually giving you a backlink which can help your SEO.
I highly recommend that local businesses take advantage of local directories for a boost in their rankings. At the end of the day, there is not much downside to getting listed in directories and most directories allow for free profiles so although they won’t make or break your business. I would recommend you go for it and get listed!
Outsourcing & Work Delegation Tips
There are many microtasks that our business outsources in order to make us more productive and ensure our team can focus on the big picture items. I will mention a few in this response.
I would say one of the most important tasks to outsource is content creation, in today’s world everyone is doing their research and finding companies online.
If you are not putting good content out there on a continual basis then you have no visibility online. Ideally, you should have a blog as well as an active social media page for your business.
The next item every business should outsource, once you have a few customers, is bookkeeping/accounting.
Pay someone to keep your books in order each month. If you don’t have many customers this shouldn’t cost you too much and will give you visibility over your business and how you can improve things.
Once you are producing great content, have your books in order, and are looking for how to grow I recommend you start a marketing campaign. This will amplify the content you are already creating.
You will likely want to go with either Google Ads or Facebook Ads. If you are looking for a lower-risk option, these are the biggest players. You should hire someone experienced to set up and manage these campaigns for you to get the best results.
Hope these three tips help you take your business to the next level.
