What's Included in the Link Building Report
1. Monthly Summary
The monthly summary section offers an open space for you to add your own commentary and analysis of everything that happened in the last month with your clients’ link building campaigns. This is the perfect section to discuss overall performance trends and ranking change, among other key metrics.
You can also use this space to discuss your strategy moving forward and track against the goals you’ve set. Show your clients what your link building strategy looked like for the previous month and what pieces of that strategy you’re going to adjust for next month. You can talk about the research and outreach you did this month to identify new websites that will vibe well with your client’s audience.
The monthly summary is also the perfect place for you to outline the active link opportunities you’re pursuing with potential prospects. Are you planning on guest posting more or paying for sponsored posts? This summary can further highlight the efforts you’re making to maximize ROI, rankings and link quality.
2. Published Links
Generally speaking, most link building services will be based around a number of published links for a given month. Our report template clearly lays out the total number of published links at the top of the report, making it easy for clients to understand.
3. Backlink Summary
This section of the link building report template pulls in all of your clients backlinks across the web. You’ll get a look into how many new and lost links for the month. We also pull in things like follow vs. no-follow which is an important metric for any website to report on.
You’ll get to see the overall trust flow and citation flow of your clients’ websites. These are pulled in from our integration with Majestic. Finally, the backlinks summary page also displays the top anchors by domain. If you're in the link building business, you'll know that anchor text is an important thing to keep an eye on.
This is an optional section and might not be right for every situation. If you're just providing links and nothing else, you may not want to include it. But if link building is part of a bigger SEO campaigns, you may want to correlate links with ranking changes. You may want to just build out a full SEO report instead if you're including rankings too!
With our rank tracking tool you can automatically include local or global rankings for keywords. When paired with an anchor text report it gives your clients the full picture of their SEO.
