How to Build 41,142 Backlinks From One Simple Hack


– There has to be a easier
way to get backlinks than doing a ton of manual outreach and creating a ton of new content. And there is. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m going to share with you how to build 41,142 backlinks
from one simple hack. (upbeat music) before we get started,
make sure you subscribe to this video, that way when I go live and share more
content, you’ll get notified and if you’re on YouTube,
click the alert notification. Now what’s this hack
that I’m talking about? I’ll do into details on
how to do a step-by-step and replicate the exact
same results that we got. But this hack is infographics,
so back in the day I had this company called Kissmetrics and eventually I bought
the Kissmetrics domain and then I redirected it to NeilPatel.com including all the content. But within a two year period, we were able to generate 2,512,596
visitors and 41,142 backlinks from 3,741 unique domain names, all from 47 infographics. From a social media perspective, in the last two years, these infographics have driven over 41,359 tweets and 20,859 likes. So you’re probably
wondering how we did this. Well, it was really simple, the first step, what I want you to do is, within your industry, there’s
some popular keywords. Go to Ubersuggest, type in those keywords. Real popular head terms. Then I want you to go to
the content ideas report. In Ubersuggest, this will
show you all the blog posts that have a ton of social
shares, search traffic, and backlinks based off of
key words and popularity. Look for any ones that are data driven. Now once you find the
ones that are data driven, I want you to go to those pages. You now have this blog post that has a ton of backlinks,
ton of search traffic, ton of social shares, that is data driven. What’s wrong with data? It’s hard to comprehend. So now the next step, I want you to go to Canva or Infogram, you can pick either solution. And I want you to go create an infographic with that data. Take that data, make it a very visual, easy to understand format. That way people can skim
it, get the information. Make sure you cite your source, tell people where you got the data from, mention the original
source, link out to them. You can’t just jack their content and of course, sprinkle in any tidbits of value added information in a visual way that you can add that they didn’t cover. Typically when you do this,
people will want to share it, they’ll want to link to it, because it’s more valuable
than the text based content. Who wants to read text when they can see everything
in a beautiful image? The next step, when you’re
creating your infographic, have five to six main points. That way it’s not overwhelming for people, yet it’s enough for them to
be like wow, this is cool. The five to six points need to flow together with each
other, needs to tell a story. I have an infographic from
the Kissmetrics website on the meaning of colors, which
colors are used for luxury versus which colors are
not used for luxury. All those things flow
together, I can tell a story, creates a beautiful infograph. The next step, go back to Ubersuggest, on that content ideas report, when you click the drop down of links, it shows you all the people
linking to that page. Now, take that, I want you to hit up all the people that
linked to original page and just be like, hey I
noticed you linked out to XY and Z website, I
actually created an infographic with all that data. You can actually go here,
embed that infographic into your blog post, that
way people can understand the data and the message easier. If you use it, feel free
and link back to my site. Cheers, Neil. You’ll find that a lot of people are like yeah I already
linked to the original why wouldn’t I link to
also beautiful infographic and embed it into my website so that way I can get more traffic. The next thing I want you to do, when you have this infographic
also publish it on your site that way people can link back. But use a plug-in if
you’re using WordPress, WP embed-code-generator. That way you can create
a simple embed code that people can just copy and paste and that way, hey, for the
people that you didn’t email out, you’ll still get traffic back to your site because all these people are
linking, they’re sharing it, right, because some will link
to it, some will share it, but it gets more people to your site. They can then copy and
paste that imbed code. Also, add it to their website. We do that simple tactic
on the Kissmetrics website, that’s how we got over 40,000 backlinks just from 47 infographics. Still works today, people
are too lazy to do it. But if you do it, you can get more links from one simple tactic. Hence, we still produce infographics at my ad agency, Neil Patel Digital, because they’re that effective. Now if you need help with your marketing, check out my ad agency,
