How to Increase Your Rankings From Tier 2 Links

What’s one of the best ways to grow your search engine rankings? It’s from building links.

But it isn’t just about how many sites link to you. It’s also about how authoritative those sites linking to you are. And more importantly, how authoritative those web pages linking to you are.

One way to help boost the authority of the sites/web pages linking to you, is to build links to them.

For example, if there is an article on Entrepreneur.com article that links back to my website, I then Google for articles that contain similar keywords.

Once I have a list of similar articles, I put those URLs in Ahrefs to see who links to them. I then reach out to each of those sites and encourage them to link out to the Entrepreneur.com article that mentions me.

By using the template that I mention in this video you’ll find that you can also build links to the web pages linking to you.

Over time as I build more links to the sites linking to me, my ranking climb. Why? Because the pages linking to me are continually growing in authority due to this tier 2 link building strategy.
