An excellent way to get traffic to your site is to appear on a resource page. But how do you do that?Here are some of things you need to ensure that your work on resource link building will hopefully bear fruit.
Create Something That Will be a Definitive Source on the Subject
That means that you should create what is known as a “skyscraper post”, which is content that is head and shoulders above similar posts on the same topic. You need to have even more original research and include things that will gain people’s interest, like charts and tables that bolster your information.
This way, when you do pitch yourself to those that curate sites, you will have something to point to in order to entice them to add you to their list. Having a skyscraper post will be something that they want to include on their list. But it’s not as simple as that - there are other things you need to do.
Carefully Research the Sites that You Want to Pitch
You want to demonstrate that you know who you are pitching. The last thing you want to do is irritate them by telling them about a site that does not come close to meeting their needs. Just like you wouldn’t pitch a horror novel to a romance book publisher (even about zombie love), you don’t want to have the wrong topic for these sites.
It’s pretty easy to Google the types of sites. Just put your topic and “resource page” or other similar terms in the search engine and then see what results that you get. After checking them to see if they also fit your criteria, then you can contact them about having your site on there.
Make Sure That the Resource Page is Top-Notch
Not only does your page have to be high quality, you should also ensure that the page that you are considering pitching has excellent standards. You also want to make sure that they update regularly, since that shows that whoever is running it is on top of things. But how do you do that?
You look for things like links to inactive pages or that they stay relevant to your topic. How often do they update things? If the last change was in 2015, then you best keep looking.
These are just some things that you can do to improve your chances. Good luck in your search.
