Backlinks – Who Triggers Them?

Around 75% of backlinks are triggered by PR. Readers of news websites, top stories, google discover, among other trade websites are in my humble opinion: Readers, not potential customers.

People who follow the news or stories are exactly like people who surf Instagram for new photos, videos or stories.

Their behaviour and habits are mostly if not solely recreational.

The other 25% of backlinks are those coming in from private communities like Slack, very niche threads in forums like reddit (r/seo for example) , or industry-specific blogs, and sometimes from high quality closed groups on facebook.

Those are the backlinks you need to focus on getting for your business.

Anything else is just exactly like getting 647 retweets on a Twitter over-milked joke or meme.
