Similarly, building links with Website A costs too much and can be a hassle on your end because you don’t know what the value will be of the link before spending the money on it, so think carefully before pursuing these websites. Ultimately, you need to find a good balance. Yes, we all might have fast food sometimes (even if you don’t tell anyone…), but too many of these links can be bad for you.
Similarly, with every other type of link, from your local restaurant in Website D to the hidden gems in Websites E and F, you should strive for balance. Not just in the kind of websites you build links with but also in the time and money you’re willing to pay to pursue relationships with those sites.
And, keep in mind, you really don’t need to fine dine when doing blogger outreach. Going to your local sushi shop or hidden gem is almost always better for you (See: Websites D, E, F).
Sure, those sites don’t link to as many people as fine dining, Website A, sites do. However, they typically do links the natural way, which is ideal for you on the SEO end, but also because they’re just happy you gave them great content– so you get to save money.
