Mentioned gaps, a strategy for companies with a local Physical store or, as mentioned in the video, SaaS (Software as a Service) products. Like Ahrefs itself.
We like the approach of using mentions as the main tool for brand awareness. It will likely be more relevant if you target a local audience, for example, in your city or state. You can also target multiple Geo’s if you use a mention strategy to make your site more popular through SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
Tip 3 – How to Find Guest Posting Opportunities on Active Websites
As mentions in Tip 2, guest posts increase brand awareness. Guest posts should not be considered just as part of a backlinking strategy. But rather as a means to increase your brand awareness online.
Many SEOs try to get backlinks with guest posts. Which is a pretty bad approach. Your website could end up suffering from severe degradation that your website will have a hard time recovering from later on.
Sam gives some excellent tips on how to find opportunities for guest posts. But you should keep one principle in mind: Guest posts shouldn’t be for link manipulation; they should be for brand awareness. So try to let Google know this intention of yours by marking your link as sponsored or no-follow.
