Grow Your Traffic and Sales in Germany
Indigoextra has 15 years’ experience in link building and during this time we have refined our link building strategy to give you the best return on investment. We focus on quality over quantity, building links that improve your position with Google, increase traffic, and ultimately generate sales.
Our content is written by native German speakers educated to degree level or higher. Our copywriters either live or grew up in Germany or Austria and have substantial experience in marketing, SEO &/or translation.
German Backlinks from High Authority Sites
A lot of companies offer German link building focusing on volume, however bulk link building campaigns no longer work. Similarly focusing just on one aspect, like Domain Authority, to measure a site’s quality risks that you will inadvertently find sites with a high Domain Authority (DA), but that are lacking in other areas.
Over the years we have built up relationships with hundreds of German webmasters who look after over a thousand quality German sites. This allows us to choose websites that:
- Are relevant to your industry.
- Have a high Domain Authority and TrustFlow.
- Receive real organic traffic from visitors in Germany or Austria.
- Contain quality content.
- Are regularly updated.
Before we continue, let’s quickly define some important SEO terms:
- Backlink – A link from another website to your own site.
- Domain Authority (DA) - A search engine ranking score developed by Moz that indicates how well a particular site is likely to rank in the search engine results pages (SERPs). Domain Authority is on a scale from 1 to 100, the higher, the better.
- SEO – Search Engine Optimisation, the overall on-page and backlink factors that determine how well your website will rank with Google and other search engines for important keywords. Learn what makes German SEO unique.
- Traffic – Monthly visits to your website.
- TrustFlow (TF) – Similar to Domain Authority, a scale from 1 to 100 developed by Majestic that indicates how trustworthy a particular site. The algorithm is based on the fact that trustworthy sites tend to link to other trustworthy sites.
The Types of Link We Offer
Our experience is that building a diverse range of links creates the best results on Google. We therefore offer a diverse selection of links with packages that are carefully constructed to boost your website’s position as quickly as possible within your budget. Links include:
Guest posts on high authority sites
These are the core of our backlink campaigns. We will write articles of 500-1,000 words and place them, along with an image for each guest post on a relevant blog or other website. Each guest post will include a link to your site written in a natural fashion.
For longer articles we create an original image to go with it, as this helps ensure the article is completely unique. All guest posts will be on DA25 or higher sites and we also check TrustFlow and traffic to be sure sites are high quality. If you want to buy German guest posts with specific DA/TF/traffic requirements, then just let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.
As mentioned above, bulk link building campaigns are no longer effective. When doing directory submissions, we therefore select the best German directories and write unique content with every submission.
We write detailed sales pitches describing the unique selling points of your business and include a screenshot or logo with the submission, as well as any other information the directory allows us to submit.
We then check the submission afterwards and send you a report of live links when the submission is accepted.
We will research, write, and design an original infographic, then market it on image sharing sites, as well as sharing it as a guest post on a couple of high authority, high traffic sites.
Our copywriters and graphic designers are used to working together to ensure that content adapts well to a visual image. Where appropriate we will use a colour scheme that matches your own, so that as well as improving your SEO, the infographics will also improve your branding.
See a couple of infographics below as examples of our German infographics. These are for two eCommerce shops, one selling wrapping paper and the other where you can buy personalised gifts and reusable water bottles.
Social Media Marketing
Another type of off-page SEO is social media. In Germany only 22% of individuals have a Twitter account, compared to 45% in the UK. We therefore focus our German social media campaigns on Facebook and LinkedIn.
If you already have an English language social media presence, then it can be simplest to keep a single company profile in one language. Rather than develop a second profile in German, one option is therefore that we complete shares in other relevant groups. This has the advantage that the shares will reach people who have effectively already said, “I’m interested in this product/service.”
If German speakers are likely to have different interests to your English speakers, we can also create and market social media profiles for you on Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms.
Other SEO Services We Offer
As well as German link building campaigns, we can also provide a complete SEO Strategy implementation. This will include an SEO audit, copywriting and English to German translations.
Our SEO audits are led by an SEO consultant with 18 years' experience. We will review your website and determine the best strategy to follow in order of priority.
