Herd Links

Contextual links from popular forums and Q&A sites.

What it is & how it works

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. Google pays attention to the recommendations made on high-quality, highly moderated community sites.

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.

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.

Where are herd links placed?

High traffic sites

On average, the sites where we contribute content and place relevant links have over 350,000 visitors per month.

Quality over quantity

We only publish on popular, highly moderated community sites, steering clear from low-quality, spammy forums.

Niche relevant

Relevancy has never been more key in SEO, we find ways to naturally incorporate your links in live, relevant discussions.

Drip-fed links

We drip-feed your links at the rate of 1-2 per day to mimic natural mentions of your brand on community websites.

Dofollow & Nofollow

We use a natural mix of Dofollow and Nofollow links (roughly 50/50 split). As of March 2020, Nofollow links are now only considered as a hint, meaning they can still pass ranking value.

High domain authority

On average, the sites that we contribute to are DA 58+ / DR65+ — these domains have higher editorial standards and superior user-generated content.

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?2021-04-06T10:45:58+00:00

Herd Links supports the following niches at the moment — Marketing, Business, Tech, IT and Home Improvement. We do not support clients focused on local SEO at this time.

Is there a minimum commitment period?2021-02-21T20:27:34+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?2021-02-21T20:40:25+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 on the Basic and Boost plan to a maximum of 2, for best results.

What about anchor text?2021-02-21T20:42:31+00:00

By default, we use 10% exact match, 20% partial match and 70% branded and naked anchors. You can specify your own custom anchor percentages on the order form.

I run an agency, how do I order for multiple clients?2021-02-21T20:49:07+00:00

The best way to order for multiple clients is to complete separate orders for each one. 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 packages listed separately.

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.
