Your Guide to International Link Building

International link building is a long-term marketing strategy designed to build high-quality links on websites hosted in different countries and regions.

Ahrefs contributor Michal Pecánek has published an article featuring nine surprising aspects of international link building.

He says, “In this article, we’ll go through nine aspects of international link building with the help of four SEO and link building experts who collectively share insights from more than 20 global markets.

And we can start with the most controversial tactics right away…

1. Buying links is very common

Let’s be honest—link buying is in the arsenal of many link builders. Aira’s annual survey reports that 31% of SEOs buy links. This number can jump to a whopping 74% for link builders, as shown in a recent survey by Authority Hacker.

That’s a huge number for English websites, but I’m convinced that this number is even higher for non-English content. Let me explain.

The fewer link prospecting opportunities there are, the less creative you can be when building links. You’ll waste resources trying to create fantastic link bait or launch ambitious PR campaigns in most niches in many smaller markets. Link buying often becomes an attractive (yet risky) tactic when your options get limited.”

Your Guide to Using Meta Keywords

Meta keywords are a <meta> tag option that can give search engines more information about a page’s content.

Semrush has published an in-depth article explaining meta keywords and when to use them.

The Semrush team says, “Some people suggest using meta keywords for competitor research.

They advise looking at meta keywords on competitor sites to work out what keywords they’re trying to optimize for.

But we think this is rarely the right approach.

That’s because:

  • Most sites don’t use meta keywords tags these days, so you won’t find any keywords there most of the time.
  • Some sites even include junk or irrelevant keywords in their meta tag fields.

A better approach to doing competitor research is to use a professional competitor research tool.”

Your Guide to International SEO

International SEO is the process of optimizing a website or blog so that search engines identify which countries you want to reach or which languages you should use in your business.

HubSpot contributor Eli Schwartz has published an article on International SEO highlighting how you can optimize your website for other countries.

He says, “Google and other search engines are programmed to tailor results to the user’s language and geographic location.With international SEO, you can communicate to search engines that your site caters to visitors in a certain country or to those looking for your products or services in a particular language.

Language targeting, rel=”noopener” target=”_blank” hreflang tags, certain URL structures, and other localization signals all play a role in international SEO.

What’s the difference between International SEO and Local SEO?

The biggest difference between local and international SEO is scale. While local SEO is focused on keywords and target audiences within a narrow geographic area, international SEO targets audiences across diverse geographic regions.”
