Get the services you need and a backlink

Search in Google for things like the following;

  • previous clients
  • testimonials
  • portfolio 

If you do you see portfolio type pages, strong pages with few links offering services which are often affordable, how about trying out a service and getting a valuable backlink?

BacklinkAfter using services it often pays to submit feedback in the form of a testimonial that could be used either on a portfolio page or even a homepage with your website link.

For example:
With products/services from £20 and a PR5 client page

In a climate where good links are hard to come by, if you seek out reputable services and give feedback & testimonials you can get great strong backlinks, for free. Even if you don’t need some of these services it almost works out pretty cost effective to try them at times.

  1. But I guess you’d want to try your hardest to retain creative control over the contents of the link. In most portfolios they just link to the site with “view website” or “” as the anchor text, which isn’t contextual.

  2. You perfectly conveyed the message and i don’t think it can be put into better words.

    Comments and Testimonies are best way to get back links but the people do not like to put in effort. Neither they appreciate the effort of writer of the post by reading nor they care. As a result they revert to spamming, which very unfortunate.

    Only proper effort and hard work gets rewarded and everyone should remember it.
