How to Build 41,142 Backlinks From One Simple Hack

How to Build 41,142 Backlinks From One Simple Hack | There has to be an easier way to get backlinks than doing a ton of manual outreach and creating a ton of new content. And there is. Today I’m going to share with you how to build 41,142 backlinks from one simple hack.

Kissmetrics –
Ubersuggest –
Canva –
Infogram –

Now what’s this hack that I’m talking about? I’ll go into detail on how to do it step by step and replicate the exact same results that we got. But this hack is infographics.

So back in the day I had this company called Kissmetrics and eventually, I bought the Kissmetrics domain and I redirected to including all the content.

But within a two year period, we were able to generate 2,512,596 visitors and 41,142 backlinks from 3,741 unique domain names, all from 47 infographics.

From a social media perspective in the last two years, these infographics have driven over 41,359 tweets and 20,859 likes.

The first step, what I want you to do is, within your industry, there are some popular keywords. Go to Ubersuggest, type in those keywords, real popular head terms.

Then I want you to go to the content ideas report and Ubersuggests, this will show you all the blog posts that have a ton of social shares, search traffic and backlinks based on keywords and popularity.

Look for any ones that are data-driven. Now, once you find the ones that are data-driven, I want you to go to those pages. You now have this blog post.

It has a ton of backlinks, a ton of search traffic, ton of social shares. That is data-driven. What’s wrong with the data? It’s hard to comprehend.

Next step, I want you to go to Canva or Infogram.

You can pick either solution, and I want you to go create an infographic with that data. Take that data, make it a very visual, easy to understand format. That way people can skim it, get the information. Make sure you cite your source, tell people where you got the data from. Mention the original source, link out to them.

You can’t just jack their content. And of course, sprinkle in any tidbits of value-added information in a visual way that you can add that they didn’t cover.

Typically, when you do this, people will want to share it, they’ll want to link to it because it’s more valuable than the text-based content. Who wants to read text when they can see everything in a beautiful image.

The next step, when you’re creating your infographic, has five to six main points.

That way it’s not overwhelming for people yet enough for them to be like, wow, this is cool. The five to six points need to flow together with each other. It needs to tell a story. I have an infographic from the Kissmetrics website on the meaning of colors. Which colors are used for luxury versus which colors are not used for luxury? All those things flow together. I can tell a story, creates a beautiful infographic.

The next step, go back to Ubersuggest. On that content ideas report, when you click the drop-down of links, it shows you all the people linking to that page. Now take that. I want you to head up all the people that linked to the original page and just be like, “Hey, I noticed you linked out to X, Y, and Z website.

I actually create an infographic with all that data. You can actually go here and bed that infographic into your blog post so that way people can understand the data and the message easier. If you use it, feel free to link back to my site. Cheers, Neil.”

You’ll find that a lot of people like, “Yeah, I already linked to the original. Why wouldn’t I link to also beautiful infographic, embed it into my website so that way I can get more traffic.”

The next thing I want you to do, when you have this infographic, also publish it on your site. That way people can link back, but use a plugin. If you’re using WordPress, WP embeds code generator.

That way you can create a simple embed code that people can just copy and paste and that way, hey, for the people that you didn’t email out, you’ll still get traffic back because all these people are linking.

They’re sharing it, right? Because some will link to it, some will share it, but it gets more people to your site. They can then copy and paste that embed code, also add it to their website.

Here are a few facts about backlinks.

First, Google’s Andrey Lipattsev has revealed that backlinks are one of Google’s top 3 ranking signals.

Second, the majority of SEO professionals agree that it’s not possible to rank in Google without any backlinks.

Third, there were quite a few SEO research studies that showed a rather notable correlation between the number of backlinks pointing to a page and the position of that page in Google search results.

In our own correlation study, we’ve also found that backlink factors correlate with Google positions a lot better than any other factors. Even the usage of an exact match keyword in your title, headline or even actual content of that page had a weaker correlation.

In that case, why did a third of SEOs in Tim’s poll vote that you can rank in Google without any backlinks?

How Many Anchor Text Rich Links Do You Really Need?

If you want to rank at the top of Google you need backlinks, but all backlinks are not equal. And when you’re building these backlinks, the text of the link can impact your ranking for any given keyword. And that’s called anchor text rich links. But how many of them do you need to really build if you want to rank at the top? Today I’m going to break down how many anchor text rich links you need to build.



So the first thing I want you to do is Google for the term that you want to rank for. And it could be any term, as you can see on my screen I Googled for the term SEO, and you could Google for multiple terms like SEO, online marketing and the possibilities are endless.

But I want you to focus just on page one. And when you look on page one the reason I picked the example of SEO is you’ll see multiple URLs from the same site. I want you to look at the top. URL from each website that’s ranking. If there’s only one, one domain per listing that’s fine as well. And that makes it easier.

But for any search query that you run that you want to rank for, if there’s multiple domains or more so if there’s the same domain ranking multiple times, use the top URL for that domain when doing the analysis.

So then what I want you to do is take that URL and then go to Neil, right? And put in that URL. And then I want you in the left sidebar to click on SEO Explorer, and then click on backlinks. Then you, and you’ll need to put in that URL. because this is the report you need to look at. And in this dropdown, under type put, and select exact URL. This will show you all the people that link to this exact URL. As you can see, there’s roughly over a hundred thousand backlinks and 9,000 plus referring domains.

This will give you a rough idea of what kind of links you need to create from an anchor text perspective. So when you’re building links, you can see that they’re using a lot of random variation as well, but more specifically they’re breaking down all right, well, or more so Ubersuggest is breaking down the terms so you can see SEO is a large percentage of the links. Now I want you to do this for each and every single URL.

What works for your competition, typically will work for you. If you see all their links not having anchor text rich keywords and they’re not including it, you don’t need to include the keyword a lot when you’re trying to build your links.

Now you don’t want to buy links. You don’t want to artificially inflate it. But the other thing that you’ll notice is none of the links all say the same anchor text for the pages that are ranking. Why is that? It’s not natural for every single link that you have to say the same anchor text. So that’s why it’s good to rotate it up when you’re trying to do your manual outreach and building links.

And in most cases, it’s not in your control, but you can try to persuade people and try to can tell them, hey, can you change it to the link text to say SEO or search engine optimization or beginner’s guide to SEO? A lot of times they’ll say no but a lot of times they’ll say yeah, sure. And they won’t mind.

But that will give you idea of how rich anchor text links you need when you’re trying to rank. And I want you to do this for any of the keywords that you’re trying to rank.

Go to page one, go through the top 10 results and then go from there, put it into Ubersuggest, go to the backlinks report and make sure that you’re selecting the URL in the type.
