Strategic Link Building

Strategic Link Building: Chilli Fruit’s Approach for Brand24

To improve Brand24’s SERP position, we developed and implemented a unique link-building strategy. Our tactics involved a mix of leveraging existing relationships, forging new ones, and focusing on quality over quantity.


Utilizing A-B-C Exchanges: This method of link exchange, also known as triangular linking, enabled us to avoid direct reciprocal links, a crucial step in creating a more natural link profile.


Creating New Partnerships: Our link-building campaign also involved the establishment of new relationships with notable sites such as Hubspot, Envato, and G2. These strategic partnerships helped enhance Brand24’s backlink profile and boosted its overall online reputation.


Quality Over Quantity: We adopted a meticulous approach in selecting domains for backlinking. Instead of focusing on a large number of links, we prioritized quality, aiming to acquire around 10 high-quality links each month. This approach helped maintain the integrity of Brand24’s link profile and delivered better long-term SEO benefits.


Selection Based on Bespoke Metrics: We employed a custom metric known as FRD (Filtered Referring Domains) to select the most beneficial domains for backlinking. This approach was supplemented by considering other factors such as organic traffic, Domain Rating (DR), the ratio of inbound to outbound links at both page and domain levels, content quality, and relevance to Brand24’s industry.

Through this strategic link-building campaign, we effectively improved Brand24’s SERP rankings, leading to an increase in organic traffic and more robust lead generation.

New Content

In addition to our focused link-building strategy, we also recognized the value of generating fresh, high-quality content for Brand24's blog. We reached out to Brand24, offered our resources, and began crafting targeted articles based on their specific keyword requirements.


Keyword-Centric Content: Brand24 provided a list of keywords, primarily marketing-oriented, that they wanted to target. Although not all keywords were directly related to Brand24, they aligned with the larger marketing field, thus making the articles valuable to their readers.


Integrating Brand24 Use Cases: To make each article more relevant and valuable, we incorporated applicable Brand24 use cases. This approach showcased the practicality and effectiveness of Brand24's offerings within real-world scenarios.


Feature-Rich Content: We designed the articles to be rich in features that enhance SEO. This included an FAQ section aimed at capturing featured snippets and 'People Also Ask' answers on search engines.


Utilizing SEO Tools: We used Surfer to optimize each article, ensuring it had the right balance and density of keywords. Additionally, we used Semrush for any extra keyword research that was necessary.


AI-Assisted Writing & Editing: To ensure consistency and high quality, the articles were initially drafted using AI and then fine-tuned to match the style and tone of Brand24's blog.


Internal Linking: All articles included internal links, which not only improve navigation within Brand24's website but also contribute to better site structure and SEO.

Through this dual approach of new content creation and strategic link building, Chilli Fruit has significantly bolstered Brand24's organic traffic, SERP rankings, and overall online presence.

Link Building Results and Analysis

Recovery and Revitalization of the Sentiment Analysis Page: Brand24's Sentiment Analysis page had completely lost its SERP position, a critical issue considering its high-converting nature. Our initial link-building efforts saw an immediate improvement, with the page returning to the 5th SERP spot. Despite a temporary downturn due to competitive catch up, a strategic restructuring and intensification of our efforts, primarily through the build-up of SaaS links, successfully returned the page to its 5th position. During the time, it has also been re-optimized by us. We stopped building links to this target in November 2022.
