Backlinks 101: How to improve your Shopify SEO

However, acquiring backlinks is not an easy task. It requires a lot of time, effort, and strategy. Here are some tips on how to get more backlinks for your Shopify store:

  • Create valuable content that attracts and engages your target audience. Content is the foundation of any successful link building campaign, as it provides a reason for other websites to link to you. You can create content such as blog posts, infographics, videos, podcasts, ebooks, guides, case studies, testimonials, reviews, etc. that showcase your products, services, expertise, or industry insights.

  • Promote your content to relevant websites and influencers in your niche. You can use email outreach, social media, forums, guest posting, podcasts, webinars, etc. to spread the word about your content and ask for links. You can also use tools like BuzzSumo or Ahrefs to find popular content in your niche and see who has linked to it. Then you can reach out to those websites and offer them your content as a better or complementary resource.

  • Build relationships with other website owners and influencers in your niche. Link building is not just about getting links, but also about building trust and reputation. You can network with other website owners and influencers by commenting on their blogs, sharing their content, mentioning them in your content, interviewing them, collaborating with them on projects, etc. This way, you can establish yourself as an authority in your niche and earn their respect and recognition. They will be more likely to link to you or recommend you to their audience in the future.

  • Monitor your backlinks and analyze their performance. You can use tools like Google Search Console or Ahrefs to track your backlinks and see how they affect your website traffic, rankings, and conversions. You can also use these tools to find broken or lost links, spammy or low-quality links, or opportunities for new links. You can then fix or remove the bad links and pursue the good ones. You should also thank the websites that have linked to you and maintain a good relationship with them.
