How to Use This Tool

You need to rank up keywords that will move business forward, but the competitive SEO landscape is stronger than ever. By discovering the top-10 results for your target keywords and analyzing their specific strengths and weaknesses, you can make intelligent decisions to beat them out.

All you have to do is submit a target keyword and your page that you want to rank for this keyword. We’ll generate a report for you within 24 hours with the data you need to make the most impactful backlinking decisions possible.

How to Choose Your Target URL

The URL you choose is the URL you want to use to target your specific keyword. More often then not it won’t be your homepage. This target URL is a page that speaks to the need of the keyword you select.

If you don’t already have a page on your site that can be used for the keyword you’re trying to go after, then your first step would be to create a new page on your site to target that keyword. For example, if we wanted to go after the keyword “SEO content,” we’d probably use this as our target URL: https://www.basesearchmarketing.com/seo-content-writing/ not our homepage. Whether it be links or content, BASE can help with both.

What to Do With the Results

At the bottom of this “How Many Links to Rank” report, we will outline the ideal backlinking schedule you should follow in order to compete among the top-10 SERP competitors. We break down this schedule by Domain Rating targets (i.e. you’ll need 4-6 backlinks with a DR of ~30, 2-4 backlinks with a DR of ~40, etc.).

From there, it’s simple—BASE generates high-quality backlinks for some of the largest companies in the world. Schedule a call with us to discuss your report results and a specific game plan to help you compete.

Why Are Backlinks Important?

There are reportedly hundreds of ranking factors that influence Google’s algorithm—everything from page speeds to crawlability, from content quality to internal link depth. Each ranking factor has varying importance from SERP to SERP (Search Engine Results Page). However, a constant and essential ranking factor is backlinking.

Many experts believe backlinking to be among the top-3 ranking factors that Google analyzes when prioritizing its responses to user queries. Backlinks establish “external” credibility.
