2. Link Building Strategies (Which Backlink Panda Uses).
We use the same link building strategy as Neil Patel mentioned in one of his blog posts. We have added a few extra high quality backlink sources and methods which helps you to rank faster in a natural Whitehat way..
These are sites which directly links to your website

Link Building Factors.
Authority of the Site.
Getting 10 links from high authority sites is better than 1000 spammy links from low authority sites. eg a link from backlinko.com has bigger impact than a link from backlinkpanda.com as of today in future we may update this kidding. Check the authority of site before building links which helps in passing the DA to your site.
Check Domain Authoriy using Moz Open Site Explorer.
Before getting backlinks you will have to figure out if both sites are in a related Niche. According to Google the backlinks which are not related to your site does not count they say “relevance is the new PageRank”.
Eg. A link from backlinko.com has more value to backlinkpanda.com than a backlink from samsung.com because both backlinko.com and backlinkpanda.com is related to SEO and Content Marketing. So focus on getting high quality backlinks from websites related to your site
Early ages of search engines stuffing anchor text with the target keywords and building tons of backlinks helped to rank in top pages. But that does not work anymore, there is a greater chance that you gets penalized by Google and other search engines. Google is updating the ranking algorithms day by day to deliver best search experience to the user. So keeping thinks just for google bot doesn’t work in 2018.
How Link Building works in 2018?
Getting links from relevant related sources is as important as using proper Anchor Texts. Building tons of backlinks with exact anchor keyword looks spammy in the eyes of Google.
How To Create Anchor Text Variations to look natural?
Branded keywords and anchor text:
When you are building an external link, you should use your brand name with other keyword variations. You could call this branded hybrid anchor text.
“Buy Backlinks BacklinkPanda” looks more natural to google than “Buy Backlinks“.
LSI Keywords and Long Tail keywords
Finding the best keywords for link building helps you to get more visibility in search engines hence resulting in more organic traffic.
But ranking those keywords which are high competition(E.g: seo, backlinks) which gets more traffic can be difficult here the Long Tail Keywords and LSI keywords helps you. These are the keywords which has low, medium completion that means they are easy to rank and if you find them right they can bring you huge organic traffic (Eg: best seo packages, build high quality backlinks, link building strategies).
Finding LSI keywords
Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) keywords are semantically related words, means related words to what the user searches. There is a simple online tool to find LSI keywords for your main keywords.
Finding Long tail keywords
While long tail keywords are the combinations that normal users often use for queriying like searches begining with How to, Why, Top etc.
The best and simple way to find them is using google. Search “how to” “why” with your main keyword and you will find lots of them.
I will be writing a specific article on Boosting Organic Traffic through LSI and Long tail Keywords soon.
Nofollow Or Dofollow.
Normaly Dofollow links are counted by google as a voting for your site.Always try to get natural dofollow links from sites whenever possible. Unless you are creating manual backlinks.
Nofollow Or rel=”nofollow” is given to the links which tells search engines “Don’t follow links on this page” or “Don’t follow this specific link.”. This means that Google does not transfer any Authority or anchor text across these links.
A proper mix of dofollow and nofollow backlinks makes your site backlink natural for google.
