Finding the Right Sites for Backlinks
How do you know if a website is likely to create a link that would lead to your Joomla website? These sites are the kinds that are already up and running, linking to competitor websites but not to you. Chances are, they will be interested to link to your Joomla website because they’ll profit from it one way or another, but they just don’t know that you exist yet.
The best way to do this is to use a tool that filters sites that link to a set of competitor websites but not to you. There are many options out there, but one of the best SEO extensions Joomla users can rely on is the Ahrefs Intersect Tool. Basically what this tool does is that it lets you specify a number of competitor websites vis-à-vis your own to show which websites link back to the former only. You’ll get to see the exact number of backlinks and even view the specific pages where the links can be found. It’s pretty easy to use, and there’s even a simple SEO tutorial that can help demonstrate the process.
From there, you’ll want to study the pages where the links are, specifically looking for the authors of the articles that embedded these links. You can then contact these people and convince them to link to your website. In other websites there will be forums where posts link to the competition. You can join the discussion and link to your websites there. Getting your Joomla website linked to these sites will help you reach out to not only a more relevant audience but the same ones your competitors are reaching out to as well, allowing for a more competitive Joomla SEO.
