You're writing content but no one's giving you backlinks to boost your domain authority. Are you doing something wrong?

You probably are, and that's okay, I've been there too.

Hey everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and today I'm going to share with you how to create content that generates a lot of back links.

See, here's the thing, there's a lot of amazing informational articles out there, from blog posts on marketing to yoga, to cooking, there's pretty much information on everything, and because of that, people aren't going to link to you.

The people who've been doing this for five/10 years, they're going to generate way more backlinks because they've been around for ages and you know what?

If you don't have backlinks, you're not going to get amazing rankings, so what should you do?

Well, I have a simple tactic that'll help you generate back links.

Take your competitors' URLs, put them in Ahrefs, see who links to their most popular articles, take their articles that are informational based and step-by-step like the list and how-tos and create infographics from them.

You can use tools like Infogram, or you can use Canva to create your infographics. When you're using these tools, what will happen is you can create your fancy infographic, put your logo in it, and ask people for links back to your site.

If you do this for all of your competitors' most popular blog posts, you can do well and generate a ton of back links and get more rankings.

If they're ugly, no one's going to embed it on their site.

Don't use crazy neon colors or anything like that.

It has to be simple; the story has to be easy to follow along, it has to be more visual than text base.

As long as you follow that strategy, you will do well and generate links and start ranking high and what you'll notice is your infographic pages may not rank as high as you want, but your whole site will rank higher because you've just built up a ton of domain authority.

        Screaming Frog


        I would suggest you to use Uber Suggest tool because it is much better than other tools, I and many believe it. If you don’t believe 100% ownership of all the searches this tool shows, then you can use Arif Tool Free and use NailPatel Tool Free to know for yourself that NailPatel Tool is the best.

      Great vid, but slight confusion. @1:20 you say hit up each of the sites that link to your competitors and ask for a link….But how exactly do you go about doing that?

      What do you say? “Hey There, I noticed you linked to xyz site about abc topic. I created an infographic that sums up the key points in that article, would you mind linking to it?”

      Something like this?

      • Neil Patel

        Yes, exactly.

        Lovely video content! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about – Lammywalness Amazing Earning Guide (do a search on google)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for discovering an amzing automated SEO content submission software without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my m8 after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

      Another great video sir! I am your huge fan. Here’s a request, there are many newbie’s like me who want to start there online business and they have to learn SEO for rankings. But when I started learning about seo I didnt get a single source where I can start learning step by step. What I can get is all random videos (and blog articles) and no idea what they are talking about (as I didnt have any knowledge about seo). So if you can put your knowledge, tips and tricks step by step in a book or in a video series so that even a guy who dont know what is SEO can learn from that book/video series step by step. It will help lot of people.
      Thanks sir. You are doing great job.
      love from India.

      You give credit to them (no link, right?)
      And they will give you a link? Why should they?

      • Neil Patel

        Give a link. But you won’t always get links back.

      • Fabian M.

        Neil Patel Why?

    • Waqas Jamal

      Sir great video but I am little bit confused. My question is that If our page is not ranked in Google, so how will other people give link to our site

      • Neil Patel

        You don’t need to be ranking to get links. Sure, it helps for building links naturally. But if your blog is new, for example, and you have amazing content, then it is very realistic to get people to link to you even if you aren’t ranking.

    • ossama Alnuwaiser

      Great idea, I am gonna start doing that. Quick question what if you did that then a few weeks/month later couple of those websites remove there link to my website. Is there away to find out, which one are they?

      • Neil Patel

        You can keep track of your backlinks using Ubersuggest! Moz is also a great tool for that.

    • Ronnel Baluyut

      Hi Neil, Thanks for this very helpful video. I just want to ask if I do an infographic and post it on social media w/ the page link, is that counted as a backlink?

      • Neil Patel

        That’s a profile link!
