Backlinks Company

FatRank is a Specialist Link Building Agency Providing Specialist Digital PR, Content Distribution & Link Building Solutions To Some Of The World’s Top Brands.

Improving link & social signals is a must for all websites who wish to be competitive in the search results. The term ‘link building’ is actually quite outdated, as it’s really about providing compelling reasons to attract links rather than ‘building’ them.

Link Building seems to be a problem for many people, even those who claim to be SEO experts. It is a major part of SEO and it is essential to any good SEO campaign. People argue that Links are no longer important but then they go and worry about the trust flow and citation flow of any links that might point to them.

These metrics are given out as Link Building is as important as it ever has been for anyone’s SEO campaign. It is no longer the case where a link is a link and you get value, it has to be relevant and of course, a domain with some good metrics will pass much more value than one with little or no metrics at all. Relevance is the key, quality over quantity and if you go with that way of working you won’t go far wrong.


Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England with a rich industrial heritage. The Castlefield conservation area’s 18th-century canal system recalls the city’s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry. The revitalised Salford Quays dockyards now house the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North and The Lowry cultural centre.

Media in Manchester

The ITV franchise Granada Television is partially headquartered in the old Granada Studios site on Quay Street and the new location at MediaCityUK as part of the initial phase of its migration to Salford Quays. It produces Coronation Street, local news and programmes for North West England.

Although its influence has waned Granada had been described as ‘the best commercial television company in the world’. Manchester was one of the BBC’s three main centres in England. Programmes including Mastermind and Real Story were made at New Broadcasting House. The Cutting It series set in the city’s Northern Quarter and The Street were set in Manchester as was Life on Mars. The first edition of Top of the Pops was broadcast from a studio in Rusholme on New Year’s Day 1964. Manchester was the regional base for BBC One North West Region programmes before it relocated to MediaCityUK in nearby Salford Quays.

Television in Manchester

The Manchester television channel, Channel M, owned by the Guardian Media Group operated from 2000 but closed in 2012. Manchester is also covered by two internet television channels: Quays News and The city will also have a new terrestrial channel from January 2014 when YourTV Manchester, who won the OFCOM licence bid in February 2013 begins its first broadcast but in 2015 when That’s Manchester took over to air on 31 May and launched on the Freeview channel 8 service slot before moving to channel 7 in April 2016.

Radio in Manchester

The city has the highest number of local radio stations outside London including BBC Radio Manchester, Key 103, Galaxy, Piccadilly Magic 1152, Real Radio North West, 100.4 Smooth FM, Capital Gold 1458, 96.2 The Revolution, NMFM (North Manchester FM) and Xfm. Student radio stations include Fuse FM at the University of Manchester and MMU Radio at the Manchester Metropolitan University. A community radio network is coordinated by Radio Regen, with stations covering Ardwick, Longsight and Levenshulme (All FM 96.9) and Wythenshawe (Wythenshawe FM 97.2). Defunct radio stations include Sunset 102, which became Kiss 102, then Galaxy Manchester), and KFM which became Signal Cheshire (now Imagine FM). These stations and pirate radio played a significant role in the city’s house music culture, the Madchester scene, which was based in clubs like The Haçienda.

Newspapers in Manchester

The Guardian newspaper was founded in 1821 as The Manchester Guardian. Its head office is still in the city, though many of its management functions were moved to London in 1964. Its sister publication, the Manchester Evening News, has the largest circulation of a UK regional evening newspaper. The paper is free in the city centre on Thursdays and Fridays but paid for in the suburbs. Despite its title, it is available all day.[219] The Metro-North West is available free at Metrolink stops, rail stations and other busy locations. The MEN group distributes several local weekly free papers.

For many years most of the national newspapers had offices in Manchester: The Daily Telegraph, Daily Express, Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror, The Sun. At its height, 1,500 journalists were employed, though in the 1980s office closures began and today the “second Fleet Street” is no more. An attempt to launch a Northern daily newspaper, the North West Times, employing journalists made redundant by other titles, closed in 1988.[222] Another attempt was made with the North West Enquirer, which hoped to provide a true “regional” newspaper for the North West, much in the same vein as the Yorkshire Post does for Yorkshire or The Northern Echo does for the North East; it folded in October 2006.

Manchester SEO Link Building Packages

Link Building Packages is one of the services that I get asked for on a regular basis. I provide link building services in Manchester to many Digital Marketing Agencies and for clients who have some good onsite SEO but possibly just lack the time and expertise to go about link building. It is time-consuming and can be hard if you have no links to return the favour from as no webmaster is going to swap links with someone who has nothing to offer in return.

Instead of structuring our pay-per-link building packages around a metric like Domain Authority, which is how most of our competitors conduct business, we take a different approach. After all, shouldn’t you ALWAYS expect the best quality links possible instead of paying for a certain quality-level (without a tremendous budget, you’ll only get semi-effective links)?

Our plans are priced around the competitiveness of your industry. The more competitive an industry is, the more time and resources it takes to actually generate links. This is why our link building pricing is broken into levels of industry competition, instead of meaningless metrics.
