I just couldn’t do it any more.

There had to be a better way.

It was December 2016 and in the past few days, I’d made my first attempt at scaling the process of building links for my blogs.

Everything I read from the SEO gurus said that I needed to reach out to link roundups and resource pages. Just email them and they’ll add your link. It sounded pretty easy and I knew the old ways of link building didn’t work any more.

So I did.

I manually went through Google searches for link roundups and resource pages in my niche and recorded them into a Google sheet.

It took much longer than I’d expected, but if I wanted to rank my website, I needed links, right? RIGHT!?

I even used Gmail’s canned email feature to send over 200 semi-personalized emails.

Dozens of hours down the drain.

Absolutely mind numbing work.

And what I did I have to show for it?

3 links.

3 links on crappy websites

3 links on crappy websites that, as of writing this, don’t even exist any more.

It was in this moment that I knew the gurus were full of crap.

MAYBE their form of outreach worked for their blogs about backlinks reaching out for backlinks from other blogs about backlinks, but I was trying to build a real website here. Not another SEO blog about how good my SEO blog is.

And what if I wanted to rank for something really competitive, I wondered?

I sat at my desk on a Saturday and wondered, “If I somehow landed a high-end client, how many of these emails would I have to send?”

I started this business for more freedom, not to become a slave to Google sheets and Gmail’s canned email function.
