Seo Souq’s Seo Dubai Tactics to Dominate the Search Engine in UAE

If you’ve got 2 minutes and you want to start ranking for major keywords on Google…

Then I’d like to make you a special offer right now. Here’s the deal:

At Seo Souq, we’ve helped hundreds of websites get jumps in search ranking and a profitable, predictable flow of organic traffic…

We’ve created thousands of high quality, white-hat links in dozens of industries…

And we are even the secret sauce behind several big-name SEO agencies (they hire us to get results for their own clients).

We’ve been able to do all this because Seo Souq is different.

Most businesses take a scattershot approach to SEO.

They run after the kinds of “easy” links that can hurt your rankings… they ignore the little-known strategies that really lead to more traffic and leads… they watch in frustration as terrible-looking sites continue to outrank them.

That’s not how we work. And that’s not what we offer to our clients. Which leads me to the special, introductory offer I want to make you:

A custom link report for your website.

This link report is the first, crucial step we take with all our clients — businesses who pay us thousands of dollars each month.

And right now, for the first time ever, we are offering this custom link report to any business that wants to start getting a flow of consistent, profitable, organic traffic.

Here’s how it works:

You take 2 minutes to tell us which ideal keywords you want to rank for.

Our link experts then dive into the research. They study your site as well as your top competition.

After in-depth analysis, using both publicly available data sources and our own in-house software…

We produce a custom, manual analysis of which types of links you need… how many links you need… and which pages on your site you need to link to in order to rank for your ideal keywords.

This is the opposite of a scattershot approach. With this custom link report, you know exactly what to do, and what you do NOT need to do to get the marketing return you are after.

Take a look at this real-life data report from our clients. This is the kind of traffic boost that happens when you start following our custom link report:

Starting next week, we will be offering our custom link report for $199. And it will be a steal at that price, because it can save you thousands of dollars and months of time on wasted SEO efforts… and more importantly, because it can lead your business to real profits.

But if you act now, you can get an even better deal. You can get the custom link report for $49 only. This offer is good only through next Tuesday.

To take advantage of this opportunity:

  1. Go to the link below.
  2. Fill out the form.
  3. Use the coupon code BFAUDIT and watch the price change to $49.

Once you place your order, you will get an email from one of our link experts. They will guide you through all the next steps — your site, keywords you want to rank for, or in case you don’t know those, the competition you want to outdo.

We will be performing and delivering these reports in the order that they arrive. This email will be going out to many business owners who have already expressed interest in working with Seo Souq, and the response is likely to be big.

In other words, if you want to get your custom link report, I advise acting now, so our link experts can get to work on your website before anybody else’s. Here’s the link to get started:

When planning my link building strategy for this new eCommerce site, I’m focused on 2 key things:

  1. Topical optimization
  2. Anchor text optimization

Being smart with anchor text keeps you out of trouble but topical optimization is what actually moves the needle.

If Google thinks you are an authority on a specific topic, ALL of your relevant pages start to rank higher.

Unfortunately, most marketers get this wrong because doing this in 2020 is way different than it was even in 2018.

Worry not because I’ve developed a scientific methodology for taking all of the guesswork out of topical optimization.

Here’s the truth.

I’ve failed to launch a content writing service twice for OutreachMama in the past 2 years.

Each time, I wasn’t happy with the quality or the turnaround time.

So I decided to go back to the drawing board to find the right people and process.

After making major progress, I tested the service on my own businesses.

And guess what!

The quality and turn around times have been outstanding!

Content I’d be more than happy to have my name attached to.

Now, I’m ready to bring this content writing service to you (with an exclusive 30% off early adopter discount).

You can sign up to the dashboard here and make your first order:
Use the discount code: 30OFFearlyadopter

Here’s what you get:

  • 600-4000 words
  • Significantly higher quality content
  • Researched and cited
  • Search engine ready
  • Sourced images
  • Edited and proofread
  • Unlimited revisions
  • Dedicated account manager
  • Contact with writer
  • 2 week turn around time
  • Satisfaction guarantee

You can order one-off articles, or signup for a subscription to get better rates.

Today, you’re going to see how I ranked for the keyword “SEO tutorial” to the top 5 in Google…

(In just 30 days)

The best part?

I only needed 13 links to do it.

Compared to how many links others on page 1 have (529, 96, 177, 125, 11,000, 466), ranking with only 13 seems VERY unlikely.

Yet, here we are. And this is how I did it:

First let’s rewind for a second.

From the day I started this “How I turned Linkio into an SEO authority site” case study, I said I wouldn’t be worrying about anything but homepage branded links for at least 6 months.

I ended up doing that for 8 whole months.

It felt like forever but like I’ve said in my previous emails, branded SEO will establish you as an SEO authority in your industry, and that makes it easier to rank.

So around month 10, I finally published this SEO tutorial article:

All in all, this article took about 60 days to make. There’s 9000+ words, 5 videos, a downloadable upgrade and crisp copy.

If you’re thinking that’s going a little overboard, just keep in mind that the best SEO strategy is still creating amazing content.

Everything becomes easier after that.

Next, I came up with an anchor text plan for my link building.

I took the page URLs that ranked on page 1 for the term “SEO tutorial” and calculated the average of their anchor text percentages with Linkio.

Anchor Type
Target Percentage






Note that since these are inner pages, keyword-based anchors are much higher whereas branded anchors are much lower.

This is in sharp contrast to how homepages should look.

(It’s because my homepage already has its ideal percentages that I’m able to get more aggressive with internal page link building).

With this game plan in mind, our link building strategy was to go after competitors’ backlinks.

We downloaded the backlinks for all the competitors who rank on page 1, filtered for the links that were indexed and dofollow (with Linkio), and then sent out a drip of emails to these bloggers everyday.

The emails basically introduced them to our SEO tutorial article and asked for a link on the same page that the competitor has a link from (basic skyscraper strategy).

As of the date I’m writing this, we’ve gotten 13 referring domains and here’s how our percentages look:

Let’s jump right into talking about our final link type, manually acquired contextual links.

These are also known as “earned” links.

You can get these by creating a kickass piece of content and then doing blogger outreach.

You can also get contextual links to your commercial pages but it usually requires payment or exchanges to make it happen.

Since contextual links (as a whole) will be your biggest SEO driving force, it’s important that you understand how to apply them.

Here’s a list of anchor types to use:

  • Keyword Plus Word
  • Only Part of Keyword
  • Brand and Keyword Together
  • Exact Keyword
  • Title Tag
  • Just Natural

Sometimes, if you aren’t applying the other types of link I discussed in earlier emails, or the number of links targeting one page gets high, you’ll want to mix these in as well:

  • Branded
  • Naked URL

(Use our anchor text planning tool to keep your ratios looking natural.)

When it comes to what pages to target, this is where things become nuanced.

You can break your website into 3 distinct categories:

  1. Homepage – where your brand power resides
  2. Commercial pages – where you target keywords that most directly result in buyers
  3. Content pages – the highest quality content on your site that covers your industry but is more informational in nature

Most of your manually acquired contextual links should be directed at categories 2 and 3 with one key exception.

If you have a brand new website, spend the first several months building links to only the homepage.

I call this branded SEO and it’s what turned OutreachMama into an authority site quickly.

I’ve written guest posting guides on how you can start building links like these.

OutreachMama also provides this service, so if you need pricing or have questions, just hit the reply button.

So there you have it.

Over the past 2 weeks, we covered citations, directories, social profiles, blog commenting, and press releases.

Today, I’m SUPER excited because I get to talk about my personal favorite link type.

Contextual links…the most powerful of link types.

First, what is a context link?

It’s a link you find in the main body of an webpage (not the footer, sidebar or menu).

Moreover, there are two types.

Organically and manually acquired.

Organic contextual links are the unicorns of SEO.

They are earned links without any direct effort on your part.

Basically, another blogger loves your content so much that they link to you.

These links are a rarity unless you are superstar in your industry.

In fact, only 20 of the 800 referring domains pointing to OutreachMama are organic.

When it comes to the anchor text category of this backlink type, it’s usually “whatever the hell the linking website wants.” (to put it in scientific terms)

You’ll usually see this anchor type:

  • Title Tag
  • Just Natural
  • Branded
  • Naked URL

If you get lucky, here’s what you’ll see as well:

  • Keyword Plus Word
  • Only Part of Keyword
  • Brand and Keyword Together

Generally, these articles are linking to your highest quality content.

You may also get links to your homepage as brand mentions.

Pretty much never will you get a link to one of your commercial pages.

And that brings us to the second type of contextual link that you actually can control.

Manually Acquired Contextual Links.

In the next email, I’ll tell you all about them and, more importantly, how to apply them.

So far we’ve covered citation and directory link building.

Next up is profile links.

Specifically, I’m going to show you how profile links fit into the big picture of link building and how to build them safely and quickly.

They are easy to build and while they won’t rank your website on the first page of Google anytime soon, they will help you increase the number of referring domains pointing to your site, round out your anchor ratios (if dofollow) and give off healthy branding signals to Google.

Where SEOs go wrong is trying to place keyword optimized anchor text on these pages.

The correct anchor text to use is as follows:

  • Branded
  • Naked URL
  • Naked URL without Http://

You want to only target the homepage of your website with these profile links.

Google recognizes profile pages on social media sites and to have your brand listed on 300+ profiles is a strong brand signal.

Whenever I’m working on a new or low authority site, I’ll use a service like KnowEm to create complete social profiles across 300 websites.

What you’ll get is a healthy mix of dofollow and nofollow links and indexed and not indexed pages.

To make sure you appreciate the value of it, you must first understand what they aren’t.

They are not transformational links.

In fact, they are considered foundational links.

Along with citations, directories and profile links, you are building the scaffolding of your website.

These activities put you on the map and make Google’s algorithms more receptive to acknowledging you as an authority, especially when you start creating keyword-rich anchor text links in link types I’ll discuss in a future email.

Next, I’ll finish off the remaining foundational links (press releases and Web 2.0s).

Have you recently heard someone recommend directory links?

Probably not, and if you did, be skeptical.

The fact is, directories have fallen out of favor due to…well..penalties.

But, you know what sucks?

They still work really well.

I’ve tested a cheap and spammy directory service called Directory Maximizer on some test sites with branded anchors and rankings went up (and stayed up).


We want to build long-term money making machines (and that doesn’t happen with cheap spammy links).

Instead, how can we apply this directory strategy for our long-term benefit?

You can manually find directories that are niche specific and still have Google traffic.

Search competitor’s backlinks for do-follow directory links using a tool like SEMRush.

Then run that directory URL through SEMRush to make sure it still has a strong traffic score.

Or simply Google “keyword + directory”.

Once you’ve got a list of sites, build brand-boosting links (NO keyword optimization).

So here’s what I’m going to do:

I’m starting off this backlink building strategy guide with important baseline information.

Link quality is important. You know that already.

In fact, there are several other factors too. Here are the key ones:

  1. The anchor text of the link
  2. Whether its nofollow/dofollow
  3. And whether its on a page that’s indexed by Google or not

Taking one step back, a link itself usually falls into 1 of these 8 categories:

  1. Citations
  2. Directory links
  3. Naturally earned contextual links
  4. Manually earned contexual links
  5. Blog comments
  6. Profile links
  7. Web 2.0 links
  8. Press release links

This is still probably pretty obvious to you.

Here’s where it gets good.

If you understand the interplay between link types and link factors, you’ll easily be able to carve out a supremely natural backlink profile, quickly and affordably.

And if any of the above sounds overwhelming at first, don’t worry.

I’m breaking it down for you step by step and bring it all together for you at the end.

Let’s start with the first key link factor – anchor text/anchor type.

I covered the 13 anchor text types in-depth in our anchor text optimization guide, but to summarize, the 13 anchor text types essentially fall into 3 buckets:

  1. Keyword related anchors
  2. Brand supporting anchors
  3. URL related anchors

Where link builders go wrong though is trying to keyword optimize certain link types that should only be used for brand support.

For example, a citation is a type of link that is popular in local SEO. It is a listing of your website on local directories, typically along with your name, address and phone number.

Amateur SEOs will try optimizing the anchor text for their exact keywords like “carpet cleaning Chicago”.

Meanwhile, every high quality local brand has either branded, Naked URL, websitename[dot]com, Naked URL without Http://, or Just Natural anchor text coming from those types of pages.

By trying to stuff in keywords, they’re actually decreasing their brand authority signals.

Not only that, but citation links are generally nofollow, so now they’ve failed to get a trust boost from Google, and the page passes no keyword rankings benefit.

Luckily for us, we won’t be making that same mistake.

It’s really easy to go out there and build these citation links for free but it’s just time consuming.

I’ve tried dozens of citation services in the past and I always go back to this service because of their solid mix of manual creation, quality, affordability and reliability.

Try them out for yourself, especially if you’re working on SEO for a local business.

Welcome to Part 3 of the Better Anchor Text series.

Most SEOs think there are only a few anchor text categories like branded, exact keyword, partial keyword, compounded anchor text, LSI, naked URL.

Not true.

After studying 100s of backlink profiles, we found that every single anchor text reviewed fit into one of these 13 categories:

  1. Title Tag

If you launch a page titled “A Robot Chickens’ Journey: The Best Years of Gobble’s Life”, that would be your title tag anchor text.

  1. Exact Keyword

This is when you use your main keyword(s) as your anchor text.

  1. Just Natural

The anchor doesn’t contain any of your key phrases. Examples include click here or this website.

  1. Naked URL

When you visit a webpage in your browser and copy the URL, you get the naked URL.

  1. Keyword Plus Word

It’s basically your main keywords combined with additional non-keyword-y words.

  1. Only Part of Keyword

Pretty self explanatory. The anchor could just be part of the keyword OR part of the keyword plus other non-keyword-y words.

  1. Branded

Do you run grubhub[dot]com? If so, your branded anchor text would be Grubhub.

  1. Brand and Keyword Together

You guessed it. If your brand is “Vintage” and your keyword is “Club Soda” This anchor text would be “Club Soda by Vintage”.


If your website url is http://[www][dot]fancypants[dot]com, the anchor text would be “”.

  1. No text

Some links contain no anchor text. You usually see this with image links.

  1. Homepage URL

Self explanatory. Includes the http://

  1. Naked URL without http://

Everything in your URL minus the http://.

  1. Totally Random

Quality sites generate random anchors sometimes. It’s natural.

So take a peek at your own anchor text profile.

I bet you can categorize each anchor into one of these types.

By now, you might be wondering “Great, but how does this help me rank?”

If you (yes, you beautiful) know what the ideal anchor text percentages are, you can model your backlink profile around them.

In fact, it’s the reason why OutreachMama ranks for great keywords like:

guest posting sites
blogger outreach services
guest posting services
link building software
link building tools

And it’s why I’m happy to spend over $2000 on a new piece of content, because I know we can rank it.

And the best part?

We created a free software that automates all of the anchor text planning for you.

I hope you found the list of guest posting sites very valuable. Thank you for checking it out.
