SEO Backlink Audit – Soft Surfaces

Having trouble ranking your website on Google?

Don’t worry; lots of companies find it difficult to get their sites ranking for keywords they know will make them more money.

We can help you improve your reach and drive a larger volume of enquiries to your company’s website. (Stay tuned to see how.)

At Fatrank, we have carried out an SEO Backlink Audit for Soft Surfaces Ltd website. They are a UK sport and play contractor who wanted to increase traffic to their website by improving their Google SERP rankings.

As part of the backlink removal service, we check the full link profile of external links pointing to their webpage they are struggling to rank with.

Here are our findings on the link profile for domain where they want to improve rankings for the term ‘wetpour’:

00:00 – “Hi you guys, it’s Dan here, and today I’m just gonna be having a look at the Soft Surfaces wetpour surfacing page; I’m just kinda doing a link audit and finding out maybe the reasons why it’s not ranking for the keywords it wants to rank for. So one of this page’s main keywords is WetPour.

So when I search that into Google here, as you can see, you’ve got the ads at the top and the map. When you get to the organic search, you’ll notice that Soft Surfaces is down there at the bottom, ranking number five. So there are actually four competitors there that are outranking them for what we looked at as being mainly link related problems.

So if I head over to Ahrefs here and analyze that for you, I’ll just head over to the backlinks of this actual inner page. And what this data will show is kind of the links that are pointing to this page itself and the quality of them. And that gives us an idea of what can be improved with this site.”

00:45 – “So the first thing that I’ll point out here in this middle bit here is the domain section. What the domain section is basically it’s just telling you how many links are linking to the links that are going to your inner page, if that makes sense.

So obviously, in this sense, you’ve got this link down here, which is the construction link; go into the WetPour page. And the domain section is showing that it’s only got one link going to this page, to the construction page itself. And if you have a look at the other ones, for example, you’d find that pretty much all of them are on domain zero.

Which obviously highlights that none of the backlinks that you’ve got to the WetPour page here actually have any external links going to them. So what this really means is that none of the links that you’re getting are being powered up, and that’s obviously leading to having too many low quality or weak links really.

Because obviously, regardless of what the link is, it’s not getting any power to that. So the UR here is not being improved, which is the UR rating, obviously that URL. And then that just leads to it being a bad link.”

01:41 – “So the first bit of advice I’d probably give for these is just to simply power up the links that you’re getting, because having backlinks go into your inner page without any strength to them, is gonna … It’s not really gonna have much of a positive effect on your site at all it’s not really gonna shift the needle at all, whereas having good backlinks with good links go into them and power going to them, will actually lead to seeing a lot more improvements for your website.

The second thing which I’d say is probably the more important thing with this when I look at it is more about relevancy. If you look at this left-hand side here where it says Referring page, and I just scroll down slowly, you’ll see that really the only link you can see visibly that’s actually relevant going through to the WetPour page, is this one in the middle here. And whilst the link itself is only a construction you know, kind of citation or directory type of link, it does have relevancy, and that’s really good.”

02:32 – “Whereas all the other ones, you have a look, you got a Russian site here, you’ve got a Polish site here, you’ve got an Asian site here. You’ve got even more sites down here that just don’t bear any relevancy to the keyword you’re looking to rank for.

So what I probably would suggest to improve this would just be to build some more links that have more relevancy. So, in this case, for WetPour, obviously WetPour is a playground surface. Having links from places like health and fitness type blogs that obviously are mentioning getting out and being active, being healthy. It kinda fits the bill really for relevancy.

So that’s the kind of stuff that, you know, we would probably recommend you build for. Just things that are relevant to the keyword that you’re actually trying to push for. So there probably the main two takes really from this whole video, is just probably the links that are currently there just don’t have enough power at all. There’s no domains linking to them, so they’re not gonna push any power through to the WetPour page here.”

03:26 – “And then additionally is just a case of the links that are there are just really not very relevant, and you need to build more links that are relevant to the keywords you’re looking to rank for, and are just relevant to your site in general. So that’s about it guys, thanks for watching, and I’ll see you guys later.”

A professional link building company can set up a strategy to roll out a link budget campaign for you to outrank your competition.

Signal Boy

Signal Boy is the best tool we’ve found to create momentum for your company’s social media accounts. Their services will raise brand awareness and get your business seen by potential customers.

The social signals directed to your site will add trust and drive engagement signals. Google loves to see these as it gives your brand more authority and makes you much more trusted.

Social signals are necessary for justifying backlinks. You could build links without social signals, but the backlinks you build won’t look natural and organic. This leaves you open to potential penalties from Google and ultimately a loss of the rankings you’ve worked hard for. (Yikes.)
