The 3 Pillars Of Our Link Building Approach

Sustainably get more organic traffic & leads by adopting a new way of link building.


User centric link building

User centric link building provides the highest quality of links you can get without sacrificing long term success.

We build links that Google loves because they are focused on improving the user experience.

Adopting this approach will not only increase organic traffic long term but will turn your site into a trusted brand linked to by the most desired publications in the world.

In-Depth Competitor Analysis

We use the strength of your competitors against them by analysing what they do well and applying their learnings to boost your backlink profile.

Competitor backlink analysis is a great foundational tactic to help catch up with those that are ahead of you.

Combined with user centric link building it will get you ahead of your competition in no time.

Constant Feedback Loop

Our link building approach is highly focused on high quality content to attract links from the most desired publications on the web.

Therefore we constantly analyse your competition and the overall market to give you real time feedback on what content strategy yields the best links.

Our topic suggestions will then fuel many of our future link building efforts.

We use our connections to real journalists to get your brand mentioned in relevant, highly respected media outlets. This not only gets you a powerful backlink but increases brand awareness and trust as well.

Who We Are

AKITA is a bespoke style link building agency. We pride ourselves on taking a completely manual, customized approach with every one of our clients instead of working off a list like many other link building services.

Every client we take on gets a dedicated project manager who does fresh outreach for every project we take on. That means we don’t work off of lists; in fact, we think link marketplaces represent everything that is wrong with the SEO industry.

Your project deserves to have a fresh, customized campaign. We get you links that nobody else can get with our user centric link building approach that aligns with Google’s own quality guidelines.

Who We Are Not

We believe traditional link building is broken. Companies who build links off of a list and allow you to pick the links and anchor text you want are playing with fire.

Anyone with $100 and a site can get links on these sites; which means there is no editorial process and no quality standards. Google can easily spot these types of links, because most of the time these sites exist just to sell links. 

These types of links are ineffective and worst case can get your site penalized. We are not this type of link building service.

How We Work

Please note that AKITA strictly focuses on links. We don’t do content, and we don’t do technical SEO. We work with clients who already have a content strategy in place and sound technical/internal linking infrastructure. We provide the horsepower.

Every client we onboard gets a dedicated project manager. Their job is to comb your site for linkable assets, perform competitor analysis and build a monthly outreach list of editors, contributors and journalists that we can build a relationship with.

We only go after links that pass through an editorial process. We believe these are links that stand the test of time.

Why Choose Us?

AKITA has been one of the biggest names in link building for the past eight years. We’re trusted by major brands like USATestPrep, eToro, Dundle and more.

Our clients stick with us for the long run, even without contracts because we produce huge, heavy hitting links month after month and they reap the benefits of major traffic increases which leads to more SQLs and more revenue.

Frequently Asked Questions


Good question. The obvious answer is – great links. By great we mean:

  • From a high quality website
  • With a high authority (DR)
  • That is topically relevant to what you are talking about
  • With relevant traffic from countries you are targeting
  • Without any spammy content
  • That is not a link farm, PBN etc.
  • That has an actual editorial process before publishing content (again, quality!)

That was the obvious answer. Now let’s talk about what is not so obvious (but even more important).

You will get:

  • Peace of mind: We are incentivised to keep you around. You stick around because you love the links we build, not because of a contract (we don’t have lock-ins). So our sole focus is to build the best links you have ever seen that won’t put your brand at risk. We do all the quality assurance and treat your business like it is ours so you can sleep soundly at night.
  • Time: You don’t have to manage us. We are professionals who have been in this industry for years. All you need to do is to check your report once in a while. We do the rest so you can focus on what is important to you and your business.
  • Expertise & experience: If you had to undergo heart surgery, would you hire a random person from the street or the best heart surgeon you could find? Exactly. We are the equivalent of a heart surgeon. We just operate on the open heart of your site. We have done this before. Many times. And we know what we are doing. Let us take care of you and we will make sure you can not only keep running the marathon of business. You can outperform everyone else.

There is a lot more you will get that is less visible and it is easy to focus on metrics only. Let’s jump on a call and talk. It is the fastest way to see if we are a good fit for eachother.

Before we outline how we see success let’s be transparent here. Growing organic traffic is not only dependent on great links. If your technical SEO is flawed or your content isn’t keyword optimised, the best links won’t help you.

That said what we want to see for you and all our clients is a few things:

  • A steady increase in organic traffic (and your KPIs like “demos booked”)
  • Your site is beginning to catch up or even outrank your competitors in relevant search terms
  • Organic traffic is beginning to play a larger role in your organisation and is helping to reduce customer acquisition costs from other channels

Again, this is a team sport! You will have to do your part (content, tech) or this won’t work. We provide the rocket fuel. You will have to bring the rocket.



We don’t work with everyone. In fact, we say no roughly 70% of the time. For one simple reason. The one determining factor if we are a good fit is – mindset.Sure, you need to have a content strategy in place and you need to either publish regularly or already have a solid backlog of content on your site. But even then, mindset is what makes the difference.

‍Why mindset? Because we don’t follow the old ways of link building. Where anchor text ratios and over-optimisation was a game people loved to play, convinced they could outsmart Google.Shocker – you can’t. Not for long anyway. And we only work with people who have a long term mindset.

‍So what are we looking for in an ideal client?We believe in building links in a natural way. In links that are highly relevant to target and source page context. So ultimately links that make sense for the end user. Because that is who Google is optimizing for and so should you.

That means taking a more organic approach. Building links to relevant informational content instead of money pages only. To give editors control over anchor texts instead of stuffing your own “ideal keyword” in a place where it doesn’t make sense.

‍Ultimately it means giving up a bit of control.Sounds scary? Yes it does! But thats how we get the really great links.Ask yourself this – if you were an editor of a major website (think Forbes etc.) – would you even consider adding a link that is not contextually relevant to the article you are writing? No? Exactly! So why force it?

‍Link building is all about the right mindset. Book a call and let’s chat.

No, and here is why. Many agencies and freelancers recycle old opportunities by building huge lists of sites on which they sell placements over and over again. We get it. It’s easy – but also dangerous.

‍The easier it is to get a link on a website, the more people will do it and the more obvious it is for Google to spot backlink profile manipulation.We focus on finding new, unused opportunities for all our clients. We do the hard work so you don’t have to. And so you can sleep soundly at night without worrying about a possible penalty.

We believe that building a natural, diversified backlink profile is the only way to guarantee long term growth without getting penalised. Therefore we use a wide range of strategies which all yield very different types of links. While HARO might get you powerful links to your homepage, guest posts can build links to deeper pages on your site and so on.

We don’t limit ourselves to a specific kind of strategy. Instead we use all tools at our disposal to build natural, relevant and highly authoritative links to your site


Fairness is one of our core values so we tried to create a pricing model that is transparent and based on our performance.

‍Before we get into link pricing you need to understand that we have a minimum spend per month that starts at $3000. This is the amount you need to allocate on a monthly basis on a per project basis. We don’t work on projects with a lower monthly budget.

‍That said your monthly budget works as credit and whenever we build a link, the price for that link is deducted from your credit.Each link has it’s own price, based on Ahref’s Domain Rating (DR) of the linking domain. We use DR as our pricing metric because it is industry standard and easy to understand.So the stronger (higher DR) a link is, the more expensive it will be and vice versa.

‍The price of that link will be deducted from your budget each month and we will continue to build links until the budget is used up.If we ever fall short of using all your budget, the remaining credit will roll over to the next month. If you decide to cancel we will refund the remaining credit back to you. So you never overpay and always know what you paid for.

Sounds fair?

We currently accept payments by credit card via Stripe. When you start an order with us, it automatically sets up a Stripe subscription which will charge you on a monthly basis until you stop working with us.


We offer real time reporting for all our clients. When you sign up with us you get access to your own customer portal where you can communicate with your project manager as well as check your reporting at any point.

‍Whenever we build a link, this report will get updated immediately with all the relevant information like anchor, DR, target page etc.


Yes we do, under certain conditions. Your clients need to be in the SaaS space and you need to be ok with how we work (we see ourselves as a full service agency so micromanaging our link building process won’t work for us).
