Show your expertise. Therefore, you will attract the attention of editors and get the possibility to publish your material.

—     Do not mind if the backlink will be closed with nofollow attribute. You should not refuse to cooperate, even if your company name will be mentioned without the active links. Your task is to interest the audience and attract new visitors to the site. New users will naturally refer to publications they have read on your site.

 3. Make your content effective

Effective means not just helpful, but also working for you. You should plan a strategy of your content promotion to obtain links.

—     Use social media to promote your website. If your content is interesting and trustworthy, users will share it. However, do not forget to put social media icons to your pieces of content, so that it can be shared easily.

—     Use thematic forums and Reddit-like platforms. Your comments should be relevant and circumstantial.

—     Become an expert in your business area and work through traditional and online media. Give interviews, share insights, work to create the name for your brand.

Users will refer to your site not often enough, the authority of referring sites will be low, and some of the links will be closed with nofollow attribute. You will feel nervous and think about returning to the good old black hat strategy.
