What’s Herd Links?

Don’t be fooled by the unfamiliar name! This isn’t another one of those junk-worthy backlink services that do nothing but extend your disavow list. Herd Links is a service that mimics the natural third-party mentions you get when people are talking about your brand on the internet.

Quality forums and Q&A sites are places where people share their experiences, opinions and recommendations. Sites like Quora, Reddit and popular niche forums drive millions of visitors every month and create quality backlink and referral traffic opportunities. In the era of E-A-T, Google pays attention to the mentions of your brand on all corners of the web.

When people talk about your brand positively on high-quality, respected community sites, we believe Google uses this as a signal to determine your overall ranking ability.

Unfortunately, forums have a bad rep when it comes to links, thanks to being abused in the past as a spammy link-building tactic. But not all forums are created equal. Many have evolved into content goldmines, full of useful, cited resources. What’s more, Google treats user-generated content in the same way as Main content, which means the same principles of content relevancy and quality apply.

Herd links are contextual link placements from top-quality, highly-moderated forums and Q&A community sites. These links diversify your link profile and can even lend some serious authority and ranking weight to your target pages.

The sites we use to place links for clients are highly moderated. This means it often requires a covert, multi-step approach to place a contextual link successfully, from warming up accounts to engaging in follow-up conversations (often placing more than 50 comments before an account is ready). A process and system we have perfected over several months.

Spammers go for low-quality, easy wins. We avoid those sites and focus on creating real accounts that engage with real people. This builds the credibility and trust needed to place relevant links for your brand on exclusive websites.

Google wants to see a natural link profile, Herd Links helps you diversify your link sources in a natural way and contribute to ranking growth.

What works when it comes to SEO can often be counterintuitive and impossible to predict. This is why a data-driven approach is paramount. With this in mind, scroll further to see our case studies of customers.

What other brands are saying

“As you might be aware, we’ve worked and continue to work with numerous agencies for our SEO and link-building efforts. I try to stay on top of the work, and I have to say you’ve built a fantabulous team. You and your team are doing some amazing work, especially when it comes to picking the most pragmatic areas of focus that yield results. Possibly one of the best and most sorted external organizations I’ve worked with. Kudos to that!”

“It’s generally true that bought links are bad links- a problem that SEO-driven marketers have been trying to solve for years. Growth Partners Media is the exception that disproves the rule: it’s a great investment in your site’s link profile and search visibility, delivering high-quality inbound links that pass the ‘organic’ sniff test and contribute predictably to rankings and traffic growth.

We’ve worked with the GPM team to build dozens of authoritative inbound links from heavyweight sites, with a particular focus on their Herd Links offering, helping us to scale our organic search channel without scaling headcount. Our organic traffic has exploded. Going from just over 2,000 when we started with Growth Partners to over 80,000 monthly visitors at the time of writing.”

Herd Links FAQ

Why do I need Herd Links?2021-02-21T23:19:55+00:00

As Google’s algorithm becomes increasingly complex, attaining and maintaining coveted rankings requires a multi-pronged approach. Consider your links as people vouching for your brand. If you’ve published an awesome guide or created a truly useful tool — it wouldn’t be difficult to get people talking about it. In the internet world, this talking translates into links. So it would be natural to assume that Google looks to more than just high-quality editorial sites when considering rankings (from a link-building standpoint). Enter Herd Links. These links mimic the byproduct of people talking about your brand on community websites… linking out you!

Herd Links are unique because they provide dual benefits. They naturally diversify your link profile AND can send serious authority to your target pages. Herd links are quickly becoming the savvy marketer’s secret weapon in the battle for top rankings.

What niches do you support?2021-08-19T15:20:15+00:00

Herd Links supports the following niches at the moment — Marketing, Business, Tech, eCommerce. Sometimes we take on projects in other niches, we approach these case by case. We do not support clients focused on local SEO at this time.

Is there a minimum commitment period?2021-10-05T16:54:09+00:00

No minimum commitment periods, cancel anytime. We know this works and we’re excited for you to try it out for yourself without being tied down.

What if some of my links are taken down?2021-02-21T20:31:38+00:00

We replace your links for you, no questions asked. This happens fairly often since the sites we post on are highly moderated. Just let us know through your portal or by dropping us an email and we’ll get it sorted.

How many URL’s and keywords can I target?2021-10-05T16:56:28+00:00

Once you’ve been sent a link to your order page, you’ll be able to input your keywords and URL’s. You can add up to 5 URL’s from the same domain and up to 5 keywords for each URL. We recommend limiting the number of URL’s to 2 for 10 links and up to 4 for 20.

What about anchor text?2024-02-20T17:55:01+00:00

We use a healthy mix of anchors for any given campaign. Between partial match, generic and branded, giving you a balanced mix of anchors. This is all done in a strategic keyword-driven manner (to help you rank your target pages). We’re super careful when it comes to exact match, using it sparingly.

I run an agency, how do I order for multiple clients?2021-10-05T16:53:41+00:00

The best way to order for multiple clients is to complete separate orders for each one through the order form we send you. This way you can pick a plan to suit your clients’ needs and specify their target URL’s and keywords separately. This also allows for easier tracking and reporting since you’ll have access to our order portal with your client’s orders listed separately. If you’re looking to order multiple services for multiple clients, we’re happy to negotiate a package deal for you. Simply reach out to hello@growthpartners.online and we’ll go from there!

How do I keep track of my orders?2021-02-21T20:52:49+00:00

We send you a spreadsheet and a PDF report once a month detailing the links we’ve built for you. This will be emailed to you and can also be accessed from your portal. Your portal is your single source of truth to check your order history, active subscriptions, invoices and more.

Reporting & order management  

What if there’s a problem with one of my orders?2021-09-07T17:02:37+00:00

We’ll do our best to fix it for you. Simple. We’re all human here. Sometimes we make mistakes! You can simply respond to any of your previous order emails from us and it’ll get automatically appended to your account. Or you can log in to the portal and send us a message from the relevant order page.

How do I receive my reports?2021-09-07T16:55:32+00:00

When you submit your order for the first time, you automatically create an account with our order management portal. This portal allows you to access your order(s) through a simple online dashboard. Within your order page, you can view the current status, recent updates, and all historical email communication between us — all in one place! Your monthly reports (PDF and tracker sheet link) are emailed across to you through our portal. This way, your report updates automatically append to your order page (as well as being emailed to you) for easy access at your convenience.

How do you handle reporting?2021-09-07T16:47:06+00:00

Our reporting system is simple but effective. We use Google Sheets and PDF reports to send your monthly project updates. Both of these are useful and serve a specific purpose. The sheet trackers provide live, 24/7 visibility over your campaigns. These sheets are automatically updated from our master spreadsheets as we land links for your campaign(s) in real-time. They’re well structured and provide easy sorting for links between billing periods too.

Our PDF reports are a lot easier on the eye than spreadsheets. They present your project data in a visually appealing way, making them ideal for internal marketing meetings, passing on to your team members…etc. As with any PDF, they’re easy to store, download and copy for various use-cases.

 

Payments & subscriptions

Do payments come out automatically?2021-09-13T09:52:28+00:00

Yes, they do! Our services work on a recurring subscription model. In some cases, we will pause your renewal on our side. For example, if there was a delay in getting your order to you for any reason. In this case, we’ll let you know we’ve paused your subscription and give you a heads up on the renewal date after we’ve sent out your report. Typically this will be around 3 working days after we’ve fulfilled your services for a given monthly billing period.

What if I want to cancel?2021-09-13T09:53:23+00:00

We don’t believe in locking in clients to contracts and commitment periods. Though the majority of our clients stick with us for at least 6 months. If you aren’t happy with the service we’re providing, you can cancel anytime!

How do the payments work?2021-09-13T09:52:06+00:00

We use Stripe integrated with our order management portal called SPP. This allows us to combine your project data and payment details in one simple form. Stripe is one of the most secure and well-known payment processing systems. We accept all major credit and debit cards. After each successful payment, you will receive an email receipt with a PDF invoice attached to your designated email.
