There is no formal education or pathway into link building. Most professional link builders are self-taught or learned from a mentor who taught themselves — so if you want to enter into the SEO field (or need to bolster your own site’s link profile), it often means trial and error.

Today, I’ll share my own experience to (hopefully) help you improve your link prospecting so you can find better sites that translate into better links.
