When trying to climb the ranks of Google, there is one key element you need: relevant and high-quality backlinks. This is precisely what you will receive when opting for our link building package. Every link we create adds value, trust, and authority, providing you with results that truly matter.

Link building helps boost your pages to rank higher on Google’s search results while also benefiting your internet marketing strategy. Outreach is a crucial element of your campaign, and our blogger outreach link building services will not only provide new ways to introduce your brand to different audiences, but your brand appearing on relevant and high authority websites will help improve your domain authority on Google – maximising your online visibility.

When Heart + Paw approached us to help improve their SEO and improve their brand growth, our goal was to aid them in earning their place on Google. This included making sure their website was set up correctly for technical SEO and on-page SEO and laying out the foundations of their website so that they can continue to expand to more locations. From this, we created a content template to help them to continue their growth when new locations are added to their business. We developed a content marketing strategy to provide compelling reasons for websites to link back to them. We understand the best way to deliver a successful link building service is by building relationships, not just links; this allows their brand to maximise its ROI.

Investing in the long-term will provide results that will continue to make a difference long into the future, making sure Heart + Paw will benefit from links that will last.

The Total Number Of Keywords in the Top 3 positions in Oct 2019 Compared to May 2020, Went Up By 1600%


We first performed thorough competitor research to understand the gaps within Heart and Paws backlink profile better. From here, we could see that we needed to build links on authority sites within the health, family and lifestyle niche to gain more traffic to the site and expand on the current keywords.

This is where in-depth research takes place, looking at the types of articles that will link into companies within the marketing sector – the why, where and how – enabling our team to build a comprehensive list.

Our team also conducted detailed keyword research to target the right keywords for Heart and Paw and the keywords they should be ranking for.


Additionally, we implemented a technical audit on the site to find any issues with their on-page SEO and any serious errors within the back end that may be affecting the performance and usability of the website. Once we conducted our audit, we reviewed both on-page and off-page factors and located any issues. We then highlighted the areas where improvements will dramatically affect the performance of their digital presence. This process ensures that the website is completely SEO friendly from the outset.

Within the audit, we suggested on-page content recommendations, ensuring that the website is fully optimised for their target keywords and is a template that lays out the foundations of their website to expand to multiple new locations, increasing their brand growth.

Next steps

Once the content was live on-site, and we had implemented all the technical recommendations, we began building the link building campaign, and the outreach team worked their magic!

This bespoke approach not only gives great results but also guarantees they are receiving white hat link building. Our outreach team can build relationships with influential journalists, bloggers and editors to gain a high authority guest post placement, giving a personal touch to these critical high authority sites. The end result? A higher SERP position for Heart + Paw and increased visibility. After all, few people visit sites appearing on pages lower than the first!
