Image Link SEO – How to get hundreds of Powerful links

What if I told you you could generate 1000’s of links, on auto pilot? You can if you have some high quality images, graphics or videos.

Using this tactic you can build up to 20 really powerful links and then earn countless more.

Image link building is by none one of the most effective link building tactics and is not used very often, or it is at least something that is not followed through.

Most do the first 30% of the hard work and don’t reap the full rewards.

Kinds of visuals used for digital asset link building include:

  • Logos
  • Infographics
  • Product Photos
  • Badges / Awards
  • Employee Photos
  • Graphs
  • Maps
  • Drawings

Photos and nice images are becoming really important in today’s goldfish generation. Content today needs to be engaging and easier to read – but that’s not why I’m writing this post.

I want to earn hundreds of links that are almost automated and white hat – dont we all?

A big problem for travel companies/writers is finding images for the things they write about

I went through 200+ free stock image sites to find which was

  • being used the most
  • which was the best free images
  • where I could sell my images
  • where I could build links

Good Image Directory Submission Sites Criteria:

  • Allow profiles
  • Have links to all the social profiles
  • Say they need attribution to the photo taker

Image Link SEO Strategy

The basis of this is to upload all my BEST photos in the last few years and upload them to these image sharing sites that require attribution to the photo taker (me or my website).

I make 100% sure to only set the rights to Creative Commons in the description.

After some time, bloggers and other websites will be using the pictures I uploaded. Sometimes they may be a little sneaky and not reference your site – you can find these sites by using a software.

An email to the webmaster to reference your site or give credit to the picture will almost ensure you get the link from the website. This can be done every 3 months and generate automatic links from awesome content (your pictures/images)

You can also get about 20 – 40 links for making profiles on these high DA stock photos sites

Sites give high DA60-80 backlinks to these photographers in articles when they use these images, so this strategy is mainly a long-term white hat. 😉

How to check if someone is using your image

So now that you have uploaded your best images and allowed anyone on the internet to use them, what do you do. You find the people using your resources and digital assets and you ask them for a link.

By using TinEye or Google Image search you can check if anyone has decided to use your image online. People are not going to use your image over night, it’s going to take a little time so I recommend checking if anyone has used your image, maybe every 3 months or so – try not wait longer than that as the older the post is, the harder it is getting the link.

So checking every 3 months is a little bit of a pain in the ass, so I recommend a tool called Image Raider. This tool gives you a decent amount of free credits to get started.

It’s pretty simple

Step 1: add your photos to Image Raider

Step 2: Set the frequency of how often you want it to check online

Step 3: Set your email so they can notify you

Step 4: Email the sites asking them to link to your site or threaten them with a DMCA (kidding about asking, fucken demand it – still kidding)
