Hi! I am trying to rank an English website in the US but I am also living in a Latin American country and working as a Pr Manager. I would like to use my contacts in the pr field to pitch a story that will link to my website but I wonder if it is a smart thing to do considering that the links will come from websites in Spanish with demographics in Latam while I am trying to rank an English website for US queries.
Besides this I haven’t got any backlink at all and I think I can get at least 10 with this tactic.
What do you think?
Don’t do it unless the vast majority of your backlinks is coming from Spanish sites. A couple foreign links are fine but if more than 20% aren’t from English sites it’s starting to look fishy. Domain age is also a factor, just be smart about it!
