Time is running out to join us (live or online) for all the inspiration and tactical know-how you need to succeed in 2023... and beyond.

Boosting your rankings on Google is vital: It means more traffic to your site and an increase in leads.

One of the most reliable ways to rank well is link-building. But it's not only the most popular link-building tactics that perform well. Some lesser-used approaches are just as good.

Though Google's algorithms continually change, digital marketers tend to use the same tactics over and over, including guest-posting, broken-link replacement, and the skyscraper technique (updating and upgrading existing content with new and better-quality backlinks).

And those tactics work. Except everyone uses them, and websites daily receive a flood of similar pitches and requests as a result.

Enter underrated link-building tactics that are just as or more effective and help you stand out.

An infographic by digital performance marketing agency Spiralytics outlines lesser-used but high-performing tactics, such as interviews, resource pages, partner links, image reclamation, profile links, linking out/ego bait, second-tier link building, and others.
