“We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson
How many sources are included on each list? Ten. You get ten URLs plus the other elements listed under each package.
How many lists can you purchase? That depends on the industry. Some industries are much easier to find sources for because there are more bloggers, news outlets, and educational outlets in them.
Will you resell my list to someone else after giving it to me? We do not compile and sell lists in the same keyword industry at the same time and leave a 30-day grace period between orders. For example, if you contract for a list of travel bloggers, we won’t reuse those sources for 30 days starting from the day we deliver the list to you.
What kind of sites are on the lists? Each Link Source list is customed tailored to your keywords and/or your industry. We find media outlets, business sites, social platforms, academic and government portals plus more.
Do all these sources accept content? We look for sites that feature content using your keywords or that talk about your industry. Some sites accept written content, others may take images, infographics or videos. If the site has never featured guest content we won’t list it but if they have, or they are a news outlet quoting sources, it makes the list.
So you don’t guarantee the site will accept our content or links? No, we don’t. We don’t know what type or the quality of the of content you plan to offer so we can’t guarantee anyone will take it. We provide sources, we give you tips on how to approach them, it’s up to you to wow them with your wares.
Can you find sources that only accept videos or infographics? Yes, we can.
How long does it take to get a list of sources? It usually takes five business days although a lot depends on how hard your keyword sets are. Sometimes we get it done in three days, most of the time it takes five business days.
What happens if I don’t like one of the sources you find? You can reject one source on the list and we will replace it but you need a pretty good reason why it’s not acceptable. Occasionally we list a site you already partner with, in that case, we’ll replace the link. But if you tell us you just don’t like it and provide no other reason, we will not replace the link and will not refund money.
We take great care to find and list sources we feel would be good content or link partners. Not everything on the list will be Harvard Business Review quality, you’ll find most of the sites are hard-working bloggers and media outlets who appreciate good content and guest bloggers. While there are a great many sites online, not all of them are “great” sites, it’s important you develop solid relationships with sites that can help you.
Are list prices set or do they change based on keyword factors? They do change based on the complexity of the industry and/or your keyword sets. We will always give you a quote before starting a service.
When is payment due? We ask you pay for your Link Sources list when the contract is signed. We use PayPal or you can send a company check snail-mail. We will not release lists until after the check has cleared.
How do you deliver the list of sources? We send them via email in an Excel spreadsheet.
Do you white label this service? Maybe, I’d need to talk it out to see the pros and cons here. If you are an SEO company, you can hire us to work on client projects, no one will know!
