Link Building Services

Here at Assertive we offer professional link building services alongside digital PR. We’ve honed and refined our link building so that we can deliver high quality links that drive strong organic ranking growth. Our link building is based on quality and sustainability.

High Quality Link Building Services for Businesses Looking to Scale Organically

Let’s get one thing straight; when it comes to link building, the one size fits all approach doesn’t work. Why? Because your industry is central to the type of content you produce and which publications you feature on.  

It’s a complex process that demands a lot of commitment and technical ability. But relevant links are essential to Google and other search engines determining where your website ranks on the results page.  

Great links = higher levels of authority and trust, more traffic and higher success rates.  

Poor links = low levels of authority, a very confused Googlebot and potential penalties if you use black hat techniques.

Sykes Dream Cottages

Assertive was to deliver a new website & SEO strategy for Dream Cottages. It was essential for the website to rank and for end-users on the website to find it easy to find properties, book and pay online.

We have worked with Assertive for over 5 years now and can’t fault their attitude and commitment to what they do. They know what they are doing and are able to communicate on a level commensurate with their client’s knowledge; which for me was key. They are results-driven and always contactable.

Client Name – Sykes Dream Cottages

Dream Cottages are Dorset’s largest holiday cottage agency with over 300 properties.

Better than a link building agency, why you should choose assertive.

“Assertive’s link building output was incredible, we actually earned more links from their manual outreach then we did a full scale digital PR campaign with another agency”

– NM Motors

Assertive offers a range of link building services to suit all of your websites needs. We know that every company is different, so we don’t have a standard package but a bespoke plan that will give you the best chance of achieving your goals.

As an experienced link building company we know that you want so much more than a few links. Advice, ongoing support and a multi-pronged approach from an experienced marketing agency should be a given, but so many companies offer substandard services.

At Assertive, we combine content marketing with a range of outreach techniques and white hat links to ensure you can climb up the search engine results pages.


We’re not just a link building agency, we’re a full service SEO agency and as such, it allows us to combine our full expertise to ensure links built remain on par / above Google quality guidelines.

We’re not just about traditional link metrics – TF, DR, UR, CF and all sorts of link abbreviations, we’re about building links between content that has synergy, content that is related and genuinely beneficial for end users.

Outreach (not just Blogger Outreach)

And why’s it so important?

Blogger outreach is one of the most sought after link building services we offer, and many regard it as a valuable tool in any link building campaign. By producing original content and placing it on relevant publications, your business gains the exposure it needs to grow. 

We prefer using high-quality content that we can approach prominent publications with rather than using back door techniques. Not only does it ensure you promote trust within your industry, but it also allows you to become an authoritative source of information and increases brand awareness.


We’re All About Dedication  


We’re not going to lie; reaching out to publications and getting a coveted guest post spot takes a lot of dedication and commitment. But when it happens, it’s worth it for our team and clients. 

Each of our outreach experts knows how to approach publications and put your company in the best light. Behind the scenes, your content team is going above and beyond to make sure the blog posts we present to authority sources are too good to turn down.

Broken Link Building Service


Broken link building is useful for businesses because when you approach people correctly, they’re likely to agree to add your links. But how does it work? 

The chances are, you’ve probably clicked on a link only to find that annoying page not found message. There are many reasons why publications might have broken links, but a lot of webmasters fail to notice them. 

At Assertive, we have a dedicated team of specialists that monitor websites relevant to your target audience and identify opportunities to provide webmasters with alternative links. 

The approach is beneficial to all parties involved, so it’s such a popular link building strategy. 


We Don’t Do Blackhat Here


A common worry of our clients is if a broken links campaign can result in penalties. The short answer is no, it can’t. Assertive only works with reputable publications, and we’re willing to put the extra work into sourcing broken links and increase your ranking.  Every single link we produce is genuine, and we’re proud to be able to help you achieve your goals the right way. 

Resource Link Building

Every time you read a publication, the writers either link to relevant sources or provide a resource section on their website. Each resource link takes you to an authority website relevant to the topic/industry, which means people that manage to build a successful resource link building strategy get a lot more traffic.

To be honest, people avoid resource link building because it’s challenging to connect with the right publications and create a relevant piece of content.

Building a network of publications takes a lot of time – which is why you can benefit from our extensive network. We’ve been in the business for a long time and have a network of publications and influencers in various industries to liaise with and get your links on the right magazine or blog.

Our writers can create authoritative pieces of content that people will want to include on their resources page, and we’ll always do the most we possibly can to increase your visibility.

Curated Links & Outreach

The outreach process we use in our curated links service is similar to finding and replacing broken links. Curated link building involves taking content that is already indexed and published, then changing it to include extra content.

With the webmaster’s agreement, we can add editorial links to established content – which can result in a higher level of authority and more visitors.

Instead of writing a new post, our content creators have to walk the fine line between adding a fascinating new paragraph and respecting the current content. For this reason, a lot of SEO marketing agencies prefer to stay away from curated links.

Our enthusiastic writers are always up for a challenge. Their combined industry knowledge and expertise mean we can offer a curated link package for people who want a speedy approach to link building.

International Link Building

Scale your business in international markets.

If you have dreams of becoming the next Richard Branson or Elon Musk, you need to cater to a global audience. International link building uses the same techniques as traditional link building, but we tailor it to meet your target audience members’ behaviours in each country.  Using this service, you can scale your content to an international level and feature on significant publications worldwide.

The Collaborative Approach

We have international contacts that are always useful to reach out to. Our team members can use their connections and knowledge of other countries to identify the best outreach opportunities for your brand.

International link building is a long-term strategy, but if you want to increase your brand’s exposure, it’s a very useful approach.

Don’t settle for poor quality links.

We can deliver links that move the needle when it comes to traffic & relevance.

For over 13 years, we’ve provided our clients with premium link building services but believe that quality work shouldn’t only be available for nationally recognised brands with large budgets. We pride ourselves on our combination of quality and cost-effective prices. Something’s working because most of our clients stick with us for over 5 years! We’d love for you to be among them, so it’s only right that you should see what our loyal clients have to say.
