Hi Everyone,

I'm running a second site, but without any backlinks, I'm ranking for some money pages. However, it's going really slowly.

So, I'm thinking of starting doing Haro, so if I start doing it and I increase my DA site, can I stop afterwards the Haro link building without any risk?

I'm referring to the link velocity?

Sure you can stop it.

Getting links through HARO is hard tho - just saying in case you are doing this for the first time.

Thanks mate :)

I'm already seeing success with Haro with another site, so I wanted to be sure that this was a safe route to follow.

What about the "backlinks from guest posts", Can I stop them after over a year of backlink acquisition?

This is a pretty basic SEO question so i suggest you go over a few guides in the forum but you can stop adding new links anytime you want.. there are no penalties for that. It's just that the link juice will stop as well.

You stop building links and soon you will start losing rankings too.. it's as simple as that.

@INCC Thanks for clearing that out. I guess that was a big misconception on my part.

However, the competitors are not doing any backlink efforts on that aspect, they're either lazy, not willing to invest, or abandoned their sites, which seems the case.

So for now, I don't have to worry about the competition. I'll concentrate my efforts elsewhere.

That been said, the juice is passed on to the homepage, will that have any slight effect on the overall article's pages?

If your keyword difficulty is low then sure you dont need to put that much effort in.

Juice always passes from the home page to the inner pages, might not be as much as you hope but it does.

The keywords are long tail low difficulty, with little competition.

I'm aware that the juice passed is very little, and that's enough for me. However, if I have no links on my homepage pointing towards my articles, will my article still benefit somehow of the juice that is passed to the site's homepage?

link velocity simply means the speed with which you build links, so you're not referring to the link velocity in your question. You're asking whether your links will stop giving you link juice (authority, page rank, DA or whatever you want to call it) after you stop building them, and the answer is NO.

As long as the link provider doesn't nofollow / remove your links and as long as those links are indexed in google and still live on the page where you get them from then you're good (you can stop building them and you'll still receive the link juice of the existing links for as long as they exist and meet the aforementioned conditions)

Your answer made it crystal clear for me. Thank you !

Just one more thing, if there are any anomalies or inconsistencies with the "link velocity" for acquiring my backlinks, does that have any negative impact in SEO?

What I meant by anomalies in link velocity is that the link acquisition doesn't follow a growing or steady curve of new added backlinks.

For example, if this month 7 backlinks were acquired, and the month after there weren't any. This sort of anomaly !

that's not anomaly. On the contrary, it's good SEO practice because you don't want to create easily identified patterns because detecting patterns (well, patterns that google consider unnatural) is how google can tell who's building links and who isn't.

So anyway, being inconsistent with link velocity is ok and won't affect your SEO

HARO Link Building is actually one of the most legit ways you can acquire links.

However, it's not as easy as you think.

You have to have pages that are worth linking to.

You also have to establish your credibility and authority within your niche.

Another potential risk with HARO is that not all niches get the same media coverage.

While there are many legit niche blogs that use HARO for interview resources and even stripped down content, a lot of the main users of HARO are looking for specific news leads and they're following certain trends.

So the key here is to make sure you have already properly positioned your site to take advantage of HARO.
