How we helped an e-commerce client build authority from scratch | Linkflow


A newly formed e-commerce company in the construction space reached out to us to begin a link building campaign. Their challenge was to rank for a wide range of commercially relevant keywords with high difficulty scores.

Established industry players including Amazon and Home Depot had a massive head start but our team identified opportunities to compete.

The Results

Over the course of 9 months, we achieved the following results:

Built 144 links with an average DR of 58
difficulty score
Ranking page 1 for a high-intent keyword with a 74 difficulty score
Went from single-digit DR to 25+
129% increase in site traffic

Note that these achievements are purely from link building–again, once content enhancements are completed, it’s reasonable to conclude that these results will be even more impressive. Still, it’s a great example of what can be accomplished through steady, strategic link building.

  • Websites starting from scratch face additional hurdles to rank. It’s important to set realistic expectations and to have patience while your site builds authority.
