Rank Guardian – More Than Just Links

First of all, you still need links. Let's get that out of the way.

As recently as July 20th 2016, one of the most well known SEO journals reported that links are still incredibly important.​

This is great news, because links are one of the oldest ranking methods in the book, and we are far from unfamiliar with the process of link building.

What Most People Do To Build Links

Let's not go into details about white-hat vs black-hat links. Let's assume that if you're on this page, you want to build some links. You're willing to pay for them, and you don't care what type of links they are as long as they're safe, effective, and don't cost a fortune.

When it comes to paying someone to build links for you, this is what most people do.

  1. They pay for the links.
  2. They select the URL(s) they want to rank.
  3. They specify the keyword/anchor text they want to use.
  4. They wait.

Sometimes this works. If the URL is well selected, the anchor text is done OK, and the links are actually effective. 

Doing this requires you to put a lot of trust into the link builder. You have to trust that their links are not spammy, they actually work, and that the anchor text you use will not land you an optimization penalty.

When PBN's are involved, it gets even more risky, because you have to wonder if the quality is any good, and if the network will get discovered.

Long story short - Most people are fumbling around in the dark when buying links.

Like I said earlier, sometimes this works.

Most of the time though, it doesn't.

Here's why.​

Five Reasons Why Blindly Buying Links Doesn't Work Like You Want It To.

This is based on my own experiences buying links, and working with many other beginners.

1.) If the rankings don't improve, you won't know why.

Have you ever bought links from someone before and barely saw an increase in rankings? What was the reason? The links were bad? Your target URL had bad on-page SEO? Your site was too young? You chose the wrong URL to target first? 

The truth is, you probably won't ever know, and the link seller certainly doesn't want to get involved with investigating.

2.) You won't learn anything about link building.

While many decent link builders will use their blog to educate you about their services and link building in general, this might not teach you how to analyze the real results and learn from the process.

3.) You won't "own" the process.

There's nothing wrong with outsourcing any aspect of your business, but you've got to be involved in the process and be able to identiy what is and what isn't going according to plan.

What happens when your first wave of links doesn't get the desired results? You don't know whether to order more links, whether to target different URLs, or whether to move on to a different seller.

4.) You won't have any sense of strategy.

Link building has quite a few different methods and strategies, and when you just send links (blindly) towards your URLs and hope for the best, you have no sense of strategy.

Most people who buy links will choose 4 or 5 different URL's to target first, and this isn't the most effective method. It's much better to target 1 or 2 first, then move on to the next target after. You need a strategy and if you are blindly buying links, this won't materialize.

5.) You'll get restless.

This is perhaps one of the most frustrating parts about buying links without fully understanding what is going on; you lose faith and move on to something else.

This could be a different site, a different link vendor, or a different venture altogether.

Link building takes time to see results, and when you are included in the process, you are much better at staying patient and finishing the job.

So What DOES Work?​

If this sounds familiar to you, then let's look at what you should do instead.

You need to be involved in the process of link building. This means being able to hire someone who will give you their opinion on strategy, types of links, link volume, and frequency.

You want to be able to discuss which URL is the best to target first, how often to build links to it, and you want to be given a rough timeline for when you might see movement in the SERPS.

This doesn't necessarily mean you have to go out there and hire the world's best SEO expert and get them to report to you at all hours, but the general concept is the same.

Work with someone who includes you in the process and doesn't just take your money, build the links, and then let you hope for the best.

Most reputable link builders WANT you to get results, but their service is productized, often commoditized, and they just don't have the bandwidth to work closely with you.

However, if you can connect with a proper SEO expert and be included in the link building process, then you'll be well on your way to not only getting better results, but understand the whole process as well.

This is where Rank Guardian is your...Guardian.

Using Rank Guardian To Fulfil Your Needs

It says it right at the top of this page.

"More than just links"

This is what we were aiming for when we set Rank Guardian up, and this is what we've created. When you buy our links, we don't just ask you for your URLs and then go off and build the links.

We TELL YOU what URLs you should target, and then we ​tell you roughly how long this might take. Between us, we've analyzed enough SERPs and done SEO long enough to know whether those 5 mediocre PBN links you bought from somewhere else are going to work for you or not.

We can suggest the best package for you, based on a sustained link building campaign. We don't want to just build a bunch of links for you as expensively as possible, but we also don't want to build links if they're not going to work.

When testing this service, we turned down multiple sites because we didn't think we'd be able to rank them for the budget given.​

​For those sites that we DID test though, check out some of these results.

Site One​

This site is dominating rankings and even ranks on page 1 for a brand name. Second only to the brand name itself. Traffic has soared too (see below)

Site Two

This site is a work in progress but after 2 rounds of links has seen very positive results.

Site Three

Another site in progress but already made some good gains and has seen a massive traffic and income increase.

As well as links, this site benefitted from our on-page advice. There was an almost instant uptick after some simple changes were made prior to the first links going live.

The site you see in the first testimonial is mine. I have owned it for over a year and have built plenty of links to it myself, with mixed results. I was starting to think this site was unrankable.

When I agreed to test this service, I was blown away by how quickly my site flew to page 1 for multiple keywords. Even ones we didn't target went straight to page 1. 

Rank Guardian is now a large part of building out my own portfolio, and supplements my own efforts very well.
