I have been running a link building campaign since December. After reading the topic about whether brokenlink building is worthwhile, I started to wonder about my campaign. Its a little bit hard for me to benchmark how the campaign is going without knowing how my peers are doing.
I have been targeting websites linking to competitors using ahrefs and began the campaign focusing on lower DA websites <30DA. Now that I am doing a significant update to my website, I am going to be targeting higher DA sites. We did manage to get a 70+ DA government link which accidentally got into my prospecting list which I am happy about!
We are checking for broken links and sending a broken link email if one exists or else asking them to also link to us.
I have someone working 30 hours a week. In 6 months we have sent 3200 emails, 308 links.
