One of the main problems in the link building industry
Webmasters constantly delete or noFollow links (paid or free guest posts), redirect whole pages or their domains and hostings simply expire.
Base.me has existed as the advanced link building platform for the last 4 years, and it is currently used by many SEO and link building agencies that got access to it years ago in the closed beta. used by many SEO and link building agencies that got access to it years ago in the closed beta.
Some of the main link building problems Base fixes:
By having an extensive portfolio of (fully anonymized) confirmed / created links to dissect them in multiple ways, we were able to get some interesting data about links' health, delete percentages, noFollow rates etc.
We analyzed 5985 anonymized "guest post" type backlinks built in the 12 months period. Analyzed period: 01. Feb 2021 to 31. Jan 2022.
Some links were built 12 months ago, and some were built in the last 30 days of the audited period, but the monthly amount was generally around 500 new links added to the database.
All links at some point received the change of status from "Alive & DoFollow" to "Dead (link removed, link noFollowed, page deleted, website dead)" and that status wasn't changed back to "Alive" even after the follow-up crawl next day (to avoid false negatives from temporary 500 errors or similar).
|Timeframe/months||Manual outreach guest posts analyzed||Still Live and DoFollow||Dead (link removed, link noFollowed, page deleted, website dead)||Avg. global cost per link (paid or billed to the client)||$$$ agency needs to replace on their own cost|

“Our LB team grew from 4 to 10 link builders in one month, but with Base, we were able to both train them and overview their work seamlessly. As a result, new link builders, by simply using existing database, contacts and metrics, we’re able to create quality links literally on the first month.”
“Not only has my SEO team seen a giant jump in productivity, but we also figured out how to use Base for analytics purposes on outreach VAs. Now we can track the success rate and amount of work they do for each external VA and use this info to pivot outreach strategies easily.”
“Base allowed our link builders to claim LB opportunities or targets for specific clients, so other team members can’t contact the same website for the same client and create confusion, frustration, double work, and “link combat.” It literally saved me a ton of time on people problems management.”
