Neil Patel here for another Q&A Thursday. I’m here with Adam LoDolce from Viewership.
0:30 This one is from Jonathan D’Arcio, and, basically, Jonathan has been doing a great job writing his blog on Medium, and he says, “I’ve been building high domain authority, over 50, backlinks to my site, but for some reason, the backlinks aren’t indexing.” He’s checked Ahrefs, and he sees that he’s missing a bunch. Long story short, he’s trying to find out is there a way to get your backlinks to show up faster.
1:00 There is a way to get your backlinks to get indexed faster. One thing before I go into how to do that, keep in mind, Ahrefs isn’t Google, SEMRush, Majestic, all these tools, even Neil Patel, I am not Google.
2:00 One, ignore if Ahrefs or SEMrush or anyone picks up the link it doesn’t matter, keep building amazing, high quality, relevant links. Two, don’t focus on domain authority. Domain authority, although all of us SEO’s talk about it, and yes, they say it’s the leading indicator if Google likes the link or doesn’t like the link, it’s not a number that Google uses. They have their metrics, and I bet it’s quite a bit off compared to what Google’s using. And if you look at Ahrefs, Moz and Majestic, their domain authority number drastically ranges.
2:30 You want highly relevant articles, like if you got press from the magazine or newspaper, or online version of it, and they link to you, and yeah the newspaper also talks about politics and all these other things, but that’s a cool mention, that’s a cool, awesome press piece, you got a link, that kind of stuff is amazing.
3:30 Another thing you can do is take that URL, plug it into your Chrome browser, and another thing you can do is take that URL, do a Google Search for that URL, sometimes it’ll cause them to pick it up faster. You don’t have to do much more than that, and you did some social shares, you got people to view it from their Chrome browser, you tried visiting the site, you searched for that URL. Eventually, you’ll get picked up. I don’t worry too much what’s getting picked up, what’s not, do your job of building good links, let the search engines do their job. It’s a multi-billion dollar company, and technically Google’s worth like seven, 800 billion, I don’t even know what they are going on their way to potentially a trillion dollar company. If…they wants to organize the world’s information, that means whatever site’s linking to you is included in that, and that’s their mission. Organize the world’s information,
4:00 One strategy that I’ve used when it comes to promoting, like press pieces, if you get an awesome mention, in let’s say New York Times or wherever, Boston Globe or wherever, you can promote that on Facebook and then anyone who clicks on that, then you market them another message. So basically, they’ve seen this cool press piece, showing your company and all the awesome things you do, then anyone who clicks on that, then you market them with direct marketing message, which basically, it raises your value or raises your authority and might improve your ability to get that backlink even further.
