WhyIStartedABlog.com – Traffic through natural link building

Good Morning!  Today is day 1 of our case study for WhyIStartedABlog.com.  We will profile this site for the next year.  Our goal is to discover the natural link building techniques used to grow this site from invisible to unstoppable.

A few facts:

  • This is a new domain.  It has never been used before.
  • The domain has 0 authority and 0 links to it.
  • The content is all fresh.
  • There will be no ads on it
  • There will be a couple simple affiliate links


  • Use preciprocity to build Profile posts that link to well run blogs.  The profile posts will be an interview with a successful blogger.  We will hope that the blogger will publicize the post using social media and a link if appropriate.  However, we will not request this directly.

Attached is a screen shot from Moz showing where we are starting….
