SEOButler Survey: Agency Linkbuilding in 2017

Last week we asked industry experts what their preferred link building methods were, the result was a phenomenally diverse post with 16 experts sharing about all kinds of backlink methods. From using Private blog networks, to outreach and even building relationships with influencers in order to attract links in the long term.

And as fascinating as that was, we just had to know. What is your take on it? So we conducted a survey in different parts of the industry, to get at least a small sample of opinions on link building.

The findings, have been added to a wonderful infographic for your reading pleasure.

The Butlers Thoughts:

It is undeniable that there are various backlinking strategies out there. It is also very difficult to gauge which one may be the most effective, taking into consideration that the desired outcome may be very different from agency to agency.

After reviewing these survey results, I believe it is undeniable that both outreach links as well as links from private blog networks are vastly successful link building methods.


I believe that there is somewhat of a change going through the industry, a change that is happening in the mindset of digital marketers who previously may have been relatively frivolous with the types of links that they would send to their own or their clients websites.

No matter if those people are using outreach or pbn links, the quality of those links are now required to be of a much higher level. And that shows in the way people are building links.
