How To Get Powerful Backlinks From Sites That Seem Impossible To Build Links On

By Chris Lee 118 comments

monoflat_icons_124If you’re an SEO, you know that it’s almost impossible to get links on these types of websites:

  • EDU sites
  • Career sites and job boards
  • Government sites
  • Organizations
  • Leagues
  • Associations
  • Websites of big companies and corporations

They usually have massive link profiles, and getting a single link can really affect your site’s search traffic.

By Chris Lee 140 comments

2015 was the best year of my online career. By far.

I learned and accomplished more last year than all of my time spent in internet marketing combined.

The 2 major highlights being…
1. Growing my Adsense niche sites business to over 5-figures per month.
2. Starting the RankXL blog, and reaching 6-figures in the first 13 months.

While the spotlight of my blog posts have always been on my niche sites, I’ve been getting a lot of requests lately if I could talk about how I grew the RankXL blog.

It’s not something I really talked about before, but RankXL just recently passed its first birthday a few months ago so I think the timing’s right to do a one-year(ish) review.

By Chris Lee 78 comments

monoflat_icons_38If you’ve been following my blog posts, you’ll know that outreach is my favorite way of building high quality backlinks to a site.


It’s the most effective way to get powerful links from REAL websites with REAL traffic.

Over the years, I’ve acquired links from EDU sites, popular blogs, and company websites all through using various forms of outreach.

And recently, I’ve been using guest posting strategies to build links on the blogs of big corporations with huge domain authority.

A single link from sources like these can really impact your rankings. And these are all links that I never would have gotten if it weren’t for the outreach campaigns that I ran.
