Extreme Link Prospecting With SEOQuake

Search for Link Prospects

Link prospecting is definitely one of the most critical parts of targeted link building, as this is the process that initiates your campaign’s goals, specifically in acquiring valuable links from high quality and relevant websites.

Setting a plan in finding opportunities for link acquisition is important, since this helps your link development campaign grow its own strategy, in ways such as:

  • The methods that your campaign will most likely involve to acquire links (based on your link prospects).
  • The approximate amount of links that you can acquire in a certain period of time (based from your industry’s online competitiveness, demand and activity).
  • In segmenting high priority and low priority prospects (that can help elevate your campaign’s productivity and results).

These past few months, our team has used several link building tools, like Raventools and Citationlabs (and they were really awesome), to semi-automate our link prospecting efforts. However, there’s this one method that actually helped us gather hundreds/thousands of highly targeted link prospects in just a few minutes – that I did enjoy abusing as well – through SEOQuake’s SERP overlay feature.

Here are some of the things that I really liked about this link prospecting method:

  • Returns highly relevant link prospects
  • Fast
  • Free

The things you need to execute this method:

  • Google Search
  • SEOQuake for Chrome (you can download it here)
  • Microsoft Excel

Step 1: Google Search Settings

First off, you’ll need to let Google show at least 100 search results instantly. You can easily configure this through Google’s Search settings, on the upper right corner of Google’s webpage.

Search SettingsOn Google Search’s preferences, disable Google Instant and modify the number of search results by allowing Google to display 100 results per page.

Search Preference

Step 2: Start Searching for Prospects

Once you have configured Google to display 100 results per page, you can now then start looking for link prospects by using keywords that specify your link targets (“keyword + determiner”; ex: “gardening blog”)

Search for Link Prospects

Pro tip: Be as specific as you can with your search queries for Google to return highly relevant pages. You can also use advanced search operators to ensure that you’ll get what you’re really looking for (such as allintitle:, inurl:, site:, etc…)

Step 3: Scraping/Exporting Search Results and Site Data Using SEOQuake

On the top part of the search results, SEOQuake has a feature that will allow you to view the results in CSV format.

 SEOQuake CSV search results

Copy the entire thing and paste it all in an excel spreadsheet.

Copy the CSV data

You can actually save the data directly through the plugin’s SERP feature, though it will ask you to send the request via SEOQuake’s server (so you might as well want to do it this way).

Once you have pasted the data to an excel spreadsheet, it will look something similar to this:

Ok, so the list looks like crap, and you will have to fix it by separating the contents of each cell into several columns – and here’s how:

On your excel spreadsheet, go to “Data” and choose “Text to columns”.

data to text to columns

Click on “Text to columns”, then choose “Delimited” for your data’s file type and click Next.

Choose Delimited

Check on the “Semicolon” option, as it is the delimiter used in the data, and then click Next.

Choose Semicolon

As you can see above, it will let you see a preview of the outcome of your data when choosing for the delimiter to be set.

After clicking the next button, click on “Finish”, and you will have a better looking list of link prospects that will look something similar to this:

List of link prospects

The list of the URLs of your possible link targets will include site metrics such as the number of pages indexed by Google, Pagerank, Alexa Rank and many more, just like how SEOQuake’s SERP feature shows these metrics through Google’s SERP display.

You can also configure SEOQuake to only display parameters that you’ll want to use when prospecting for link opportunities through its browser settings (on the upper right corner of your browser).

SEOQuake Settings (Chrome)

You can choose the parameters you only want to show up on Google search results:

SEOQuake Parameters

Step 4: Expanding your List

Creating your initial list of link prospects will only take you a few seconds (based on what I’ve done), and of course you’ll also have to segment/sort that list out (which I will be explaining on the latter part of this post). Moreover, expanding your list is not really hard, as there are many options to choose from to make the most out of this method, such as from:

  • Other semantically related search terms that your campaign is targeting to rank for.
  • 2nd to 5th page of your initial keyword search (which means 100 – 400 more possible prospects, though these sites may be of low relevance or quality).
  • Through Google’s suggested “related searches”, which you can see below the search result pages (this could give you hundreds or more prospects to your list).
Searches relatedJust repeat the process by copying the results’ CSV data and pasting them to your list, and you’ll eventually have a larger list of highly relevant link prospects.Larger list of link prospects

Step 5: Segmenting your list

The easiest way to sort your list is through segmenting your data through the Alexa Rank’s column, as it provides unique set of numbers that will allow you to classify highly authoritative sites (single to 4 digit numbers) from average websites in your industry.

This area of your list will also allow you to determine high priority prospects, low priority prospects, duplicate domains and irrelevant authority sites (Facebook, Youtube, authority news sites, etc…).

In filtering your excel list, you can first start by highlighting the Alexa Rank’s column.

Highligh Alexa Rank Column

Click on the Alexa Rank’s entire column (on “column G”), go to “Data” and click on “Filter”.

Filtering your listClick on the arrow placed on the Alexa Rank column’s right corner, and then choose “Sort Smallest to Largest”.

Sort list smallest to largestYou will now have your list sorted based on each domain’s Alexa Rank. In this ordered list, you can separate high profile sites as well as sites that wouldn’t be that relevant for your campaign, wherein you can just start working on the sites that you can realistically build relationships with or acquire links from (probably sites that have 4-6 digit Alexa rankings).

Sorted list of link prospects

Bonus Tip: Reverse Engineering Competitors’ Links

You can also use this method through Google’s Blog Search to find blogs linking to your competitors (by simply using the search command “link:www.yourcompetitor.com”) and include these results to your list of link prospects.

Reverse Engineering Links through Google

Again, you can use the process I’ve mentioned above and continuously improve your list of link prospects by scraping sites linking to your competitors.

    Great post. Might have to add it to my compulsory reading list for new starters! Question though:

    I’ve never found the Alexa numbers reliable enough to use in any useful way. I know that your usage above doesn’t really require much accuracy, but was wondering whether that would still have been your first choice of metric before the demise of YSE.

      Thanks for dropping by Mat.

      About your question:

      I don’t really use Alexa rankings as a metric when gauging quality prospects, I just chose it for the reason that domains (your prospects) – on your list – will definitely have a unique Alexa rank, which would make it easier when used in segmenting the list 🙂 In terms of site metrics, moz’s page and domain authority (PA & DA) seems to be the most efficient ones to use.

      Hey man, thanks for the awesome comment!

      I do use mozbar’s SERP overlay when prospecting for link opportunities, and Justin Briggs just discussed it on his recent post (on how you can scrape search results with each URL’s PA and DA):

      http://justinbriggs.org/18-tools-to-speed-up-link-building

      The great thing about SEOQuake is that you can create your own parameter (and I’m still at the process of making moz’s PA and DA show up on my SEOQuake bar instead of the defunct YSE link data), I might share it next time any way 🙂

    I like how you search and gathered all the link prospects with the SEOQuake tool and organized them in an excel sheet. However I think most of these links will not allow a dofollow link back to your site.
    Maybe there are some exceptions for certain niches that will bring a good amount of dofollow blogs but most of the time you won’t find the right blogs.
    Am I right or am I missing something?
