Building backlinks is tough. In fact, creating a sustainable backlinks strategy In 2019, will likely get harder.

Google SEO is a competitive landscape and the people who are winning are those that are willing to put in the work.

But do they still deserve them today? In many situations, the answer is no.

However, there are easy ways to identify “low quality pages” and to use these as opportunities to create backlinks to your superior, up-to-date content.
