About HARO

What Is HARO?

HARO (rebranding to Connectively) is an online platform that allows journalists to request comments from experts of stories that they are writing.

For example, a journalist writing a blog about the cost of solar panels may make a request for comments from solar panel experts on the different types of installations and what factors would affect the pricing.

These expert quotes add Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (EEAT) to the article. HARO link building agencies answer these expert requests on behalf of website owners to build HARO backlinks.

How Does HARO Help With SEO?

Backlinks always have and always will be one of the most important Google ranking factors. In fact, in the midst of AI writing tools becoming so popular, the best way for Google to differentiate authoritativeness is using backlinks.

It’s why parasite SEO is such a powerful method. You’re abusing the backlink profile of websites with huge backlink profiles to rank for massively competitive keywords. In fact, it’s being abused so much by SEO’s, that Google is giving manual penalties to websites that allow it.

So, what does that tell you? Links are massively influential in the current search engine ranking algorithms. HARO helps SEO by building some of the most authoritative backlinks you can get.

Hard To Get

Because HARO links are from real websites that you can’t pay to get on, it means that links from this website are hard to get. If they’re hard to get, it means your competitors can’t get them. If you have these powerful links and your competitors don’t - you have an unfair advantage over them.

Chart icon.

High Traffic

Not every HARO link has high traffic, but they get a lot more traffic than other low-qualtiy methods like guest posting. High traffic and/or high traffic value indicates to Google that this is a high quality link and therefore passes more power.

Pie Chart icon.

High DR

DR isn't everything, but generally, the higher the DR, the better.

Structure icon.

High Referring Domains

Also known as Tier 2 links, HARO links often gain high quality links from other websites. This powers up the page and passes more power from the published links.

Do-Follow

It should possess the “dofollow” attribute. Not every link you secure through HARO will have this attribute, but our service ensures you only incur costs for those that do.

HARO Vs Guest Posts

There’s a lot of money to be made by selling guest posts - and we could definitely cash in by selling them - but we choose not to sell them. Why? Because guest posting is becoming less and less effective for SEO:

Course Down icon.

Many Low-Quality Sites Selling Links And Packed With AI-Driven Content

Each core update is killing a lot of these low quality sites that sell links and are pumped full of AI with no ambition to rank - only to sell a guest post link. The site might have value today, but in 6 months or a year that link is likely going to be devalued as the website loses traffic.

They've Been Spammed To Death

If you're Google and a site has 500 referring domains, but links out to 7,000 low quality spammy sites, you're going going to devalue that link.

A Lot Of These Websites Are DR Boosted.

You can go onto Fiverr and buy DR boosting packages for cheap. A lot of these sites do it to fool those buying guest posts into thinking their 40+ DR site holds an ounce of quality - it doesn't.

Fake Traffic

A lot of the organic traffic stats are boosted by ranking for high volume keywords that nobody else is ranking for.

HARO Alternatives That We Use To Speed Up Link-Building

Okay, if HARO is so good... What's the catch?If there is one fault of HARO, it’s that the speed that you can build links is slower than other methods - although, the power of these links definitely outweighs this.

Challenges And Solutions In HARO Link Building

Shield Warning icon.

Oversaturation

One of the primary challenges in HARO link building is the oversaturation of the platform, which makes it harder to get results.

As more people are using HARO for SEO to obtain high-quality backlinks, competition has increased, making it difficult to stand out. To overcome this challenge, we can focus on crafting unique, well-researched, and engaging pitches.

Additionally, consistently responding to relevant queries and customising our pitches for each journalist can significantly increase our chances of getting a link from their article.

Shield icon.

Finding Relevant Article Opportunities

Another difficulty faced in HARO link-building is finding relevant article opportunities. With a plethora of queries received daily, it can be challenging to sift through them and identify the ones that suit our expertise.

To tackle this issue, we can use the email filtering and labelling features in our email clients to organise the queries based on their relevance to our niche. This helps us quickly identify and respond to the most suitable opportunities, saving time and improving our chances of success.

Watch Round icon.

Time Management

Time management is another significant challenge when using HARO for link building. As queries often have tight deadlines, it’s crucial to allocate time efficiently to respond to them.

We can manage our time better by creating a schedule for checking and responding to queries, ensuring we set aside dedicated time each day or week. This also helps us keep track of deadlines and avoid missing out on valuable opportunities due to time constraints.

Handshake icon.

Long-Lasting Relationships

Lastly, building long-lasting relationships with journalists can be tricky in the HARO ecosystem. As many users are solely focused on obtaining backlinks, they forget about the importance of cultivating meaningful connections with journalists, which can result in missed future opportunities.

To overcome this challenge, we can maintain regular communication with the journalists we have successfully worked with, providing them with helpful insights and engaging content even after our initial exchanges.

This helps us build trust, demonstrate our expertise in our niche, and make ourselves valuable sources for future collaborations.

FAQ

HARO SEO: Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Links Per Month Can We Build With HARO?

It will take around 3 weeks to start getting results. After that, you can expect 2-5 links per month, depending on your niche and how optimized your LinkedIn profile is.

Can I Pre-Approve Pitches?

No, all of our HARO links are vetted for quality metrics before pitching. One of the most important things when responding to pitches is to respond FAST. Otherwise, your answer will be drowned in up to 80+ other answers.

How Involved Do I Need To Be In This Project?

You don't need to do anything, other than optimizing your social media / LinkedIn profile (we can assist) and providing a headshot. We take care of everything else.

Do You Cover Every Business Niche & Expertise?

We cover most niches, but can't cover niches like gambling and adult websites. If in doubt, please contact us first.

Can I Give You Dream Publications?

You can, but we don't guarantee anything. First of all, some of those publications may not use HARO and even if they do, it's 5-10% of landing a link on that site when we pitch it.

How Close To My Niche Will These Links Be?

We try and stay on niche as much as possible. For example, if you have a tech website, we'll pitch for tech requests. But we may also pitch for requests from marketing or business websites. The more you niche down, the longer it will take to complete your order.

Can You Link To Money Pages?

HARO links are only available on the home page. It's not good SEO to send all the links to your money page though. If you power up your home page with HARO, you can use good internal linking to push the power to your money pages. Sending too many links to your money page can burn it.

Can I Choose The Anchor Text?

As these as expert quotes, the anchors are all branded anchors.

Can I Re-Sell This Whitelabel?

Yes, we whitelabel this service to many agencies. You'll given a full link and pitch report with no branding on it. Your clients will never know we're involved!

How Long Will Links Last?

As these are genuine links, they should be permanent links.

Anyone that promises that every link is permanent though, isn't being truthful because you never know what's going to happen to a website.

Link removals, however, are extremely rare.

We don't charge for backlinks removed within three months of publication.

Do You Provide Refunds?

You can, but we don't guarantee anything. First of all, some of those publications may not use HARO and even if they do, it's 5-10% of landing a link on that site when we pitch it.
