What are Links with Traffic, and how do you get them?
This week I've been confused about a "new standard in links with traffic" when it was all about links getting traffic from organic rankings.
That was a sub-sub chapter of my Golden Rules of Link Building #5 from 2009, which we last updated in 2017.
So I made a video that explains
👍 what the two types of "links with traffic" really are,
👍 why the second type of "links with traffic" is so desirable, and
👍 why a random surfer would matter
👍 how you can find links with traffic (from organic rankings), for free, just using Google.
👍 how you can verify that links have traffic (from organic rankings) for free, only using Google.
👍 how you can ascertain links having traffic, with Ahrefs, SEMrush, Sistrix, and LRT
👍 why this essential link building feature is not unique to any SEO tool
We'll probably also republish the Golden Rules of Link Building based on this understanding that traffic links mean links from ranking pages for many.
I am looking forward to your feedback.
