In her Learn Inbound talk, Laura discusses how marketers are guilty of focusing solely on links generated when briefing or reporting on their Digital PR/Content Marketing activity. Her talk covers the other value this activity adds and how you can demonstrate and leverage it for clients.
- Google doesn’t rely solely on the volume of links as a metric, so instead of focusing on 100’s of backlinks, you can achieve a better result by focusing on the most valuable ones. The quality of the links, not quantity is what matters.
- To strengthen digital PR, a focus should be made on the following: creating credible citations, building brand awareness, trustworthiness and expertise, and working on ways to take up SERP real estate.
- Domain Authority doesn’t reflect the quality of a website as a terrible website can still rank well. Be sure to check your website’s reputation using a tool such as SEMrush.
