After 18 months I believe its time to work on my stores SEO (I know, I should have done it sooner).
Im just wondering if anyone has any tried and tested methods to getting backlinks to your website. My website is a fitness clothing/ gym apparel / sportswear business.
I know there are many buckets to try and fill for better SEO but could anyone give me an insight to some methods I could do myself. Last month we begun blogging, which I think is a step in the right direction.
Would appreciate any comments,
One of my long-time clients is within the fitness apparel industry. Though I personally do not run SEO for him, I find success via Facebook ads and niche Google ads. I know that my client recently switched his SEO management over to a new freelancer and results have skyrocketed within the past 3 months.
If you would like me to put you in touch with him, please let me know. You can reach me at UriWeinber@Gmail.com
This is not at all a sales pitch - just figured he is an appropriate contact to speak to with experience in the industry.
Have you thought about creating infographics to get backlinks? Publish helpful fitness infographics (packed with info and statistics) on sites like http://visual.ly. With Visual.ly's embed code for your infographic, you never know how many backlinks you'll receive when others embed your graphic on their sites. Here's one I created for plumbing professionals:
Just one idea you can try! Good luck to you. ?️
Hi Tom! Maggie, a Shopify Partner here :)
Yes, I agree backlinko is a trusted source of backlinking. While I do not recommend ads as backlinking strategy [backlinks as default should be giving you credits for the years to come, and ads will stop once you stop paying]. What I recommend is connecting with your target audience and be present in the places where they are active [discussion boards, members clubs, advice forums] and give your advice there, posting regularly, building your authority and posting links to your site, if relevant. Optomize your content, so it's shareable, blog regularly and be active on social media. These are the best ways to earn relevant becklinks.

To get some relevant links you need to do some research on web and find out the related blogs, forums and take part in discussions over blogs via blog commenting, and in forums as well. Apart from this, if you want to put some extra efforts and speed up the process then here are few additional things you can do:
1. Guest Blog postings
2. Managing your website blog and linking back the product pages with correct anchor text
3. Sharing blogs and products on Social media
4. You can create profiles with your website homepage link on several social websites
5. Check your top competitors' backlinks using any good backlink checker tool, and try to build links on the same places
6. Give your expert advice by publishing a helpful Article on some popular sites on web
7. even there is lots to do...
Yes, I agree backlinks is a trusted source of backlinking. A backlink is a link from one website to another, and when done right, high-quality and relevant backlinks can help you to increase your website's ranking position within search engines. Backlinks are the bread and butter of every SEO expert’s toolkit. Try these 7strategies to get your website ranking higher in no time!
1.Develop Shareable Content
2. Write Guest Posts
3. Create infographics
4. Become a Source For Reporters and Bloggers
5. Backlink from Your Own Website
8. Write Guest Posts on Other Blogs
9.Track Your Competitors’ Backlinks and ‘Steal’ Them
there has been already a lot of strategies mentioned (guest blogging, checking backlinks of your competitors, sharing your blog posts on social media, etc.).
How about connecting with some active bloggers and influencers who are interested in fitness (and could be a fit with your brand)? You can also check fitness studios you think could be willing to cooperate with you (sharing your blog posts, including your brand/product in their blog posts, recommending your products to their customers).
If they find your product/brand interesting and think that for their audience/customers there's a fit and that they might benefit for it, they might be willing to cooperate with you. I have some positive experience with this, however, it takes quite a lot of time to find the right bloggers/influencers/websites who will be willing to invest time in discussing the cooperation with you and take further steps.
Btw. it doesn't mean that you have to pay them for it (I don't mean this kind of cooperation), what worked for me was that if you explain the benefits for them clearly and they think there's a fit, they will be happy to cooperate with you.
The useful methods to build quality backlinks are:
Guest posts on related websites
Build links with web2.0 submission
Broken links method
Email outreach to influencers
Create Competitors’ Backlinks
Thanks & Regards
