One very basic tactic I’ve used for years which still works for link building ideas today.
Looking in different global markets at competitive verticals.
1. Pick a term let’s say “website hosting comparison”. Usually go with high CPC terms from
Ahrefs also look at difficulty scores.
2. Use Google Ad Preview tool, you can also see organic listings https://adwords.google.com/apt/AdPreview sure you can use a VPN as well.
3. Check different markets - U.K, US, AU, CA, EU.
4. Pick the top 10 results and start prospecting in each region for link ideas and patterns.
One thing many link builders do is they don’t think Global they only look in the local market.
