Here are the three main metrics you can use to measure the effectiveness of your link building efforts: the growth trend of new referring domains. Positive changes in landing page positions in Google Search. Engagement metrics are effective parameters for understanding how well your content works in terms of solving your readers' questions (and, subsequently, attracting them). The next segment of traffic you should focus on is referral traffic, which is primarily used for your off-site content efforts.
In your guest publishing and external content campaigns, you'll publish content to several external sources. In the body of your posts or in your author's biography, you'll find links that point to your site. By using the following KPIs, you can measure and report on the success of your link building efforts. When combined, they make a powerful argument for determining whether your link building campaign was a brilliant, glorious unicorn that sings or a wet and deaf chihuahua.
Trust me, you'll have both along the way. Getting a link on a competitor's blog is the magical and brilliant realm that every link building team should aspire to, but it's hard to do. Check your domain authority regularly to see if your content is doing its job of getting inbound links to increase your DA score; otherwise, your content may not be of sufficient quality to attract inbound links. Here, your objective will be to evaluate the number of links you have obtained per piece, as a measure of the effectiveness of each of them in obtaining links.
In addition, the site's publishers dissuade their readers from leaving the site (I've seen a lot of hidden anchor text in posts lately), so links to guest posts don't usually generate much traffic, by design. Keep track of every link you build manually in your outreach efforts, perhaps in a spreadsheet, so you can measure the growth of the list over time. The great thing about building useful links is that it can often lead to conversions because the links target consumers who are at the lower end of the conversion funnel and take them to pages intended for conversion. But how do you know when your link building work is successful and, more importantly, how do you demonstrate it? This question arises after you have developed the business argument, convinced your company or client of the possible ROI, and obtained approval and funding to start developing your content marketing program.
It is important to note that, in the case of this campaign, most of the links obtained (17) were not followers. Be sure to also report mentions of brands that don't follow you, even if they don't link to your site (but make sure to follow up anyway and ask for a link). Pay special attention to the number of links (don't forget to exclude those that contain spam), the number of unique domains, and the quality of the referring domains. One of the most important functions that content plays in bringing traffic to your site is to get inbound links from other websites.
Audience research, content programming, and content reuse are basic elements that must be properly combined. In addition, you can check with the website owner and ask them to add a canonical link tag that points to the original article.
