FAQs
What kind of backlinks can I get?
Simply put, we help you get the most relevant, contextual backlinks from elite authors all around the world who can outreach and contribute quality articles on websites within your industry. You can work closely with the author to discuss what your link building goals are and how you'd like to get referenced. Just post a project and let authors know what kind of backlinks you’re looking for!
How much does Link-able cost?
Link-able is free to join and you can post as many projects as you want! However, you’ll naturally need to pay authors you hire for their work. Like most freelance job platforms, we take a percentage from the author's earnings so that we can maintain our platform and ensure each author performs the quality work they promised.
How much do authors charge for building me a single link?
Building links is not easy and we require all our authors to provide premium quality work. The cost typically varies depending on several factors, primarily the DA (Domain Authority) of the website and the link attribute (dofollow or nofollow). Most authors on our platform charge anywhere from $150 to $1000 for building a single backlink. Link-able is not ideal for those who have a low budget or looking to outsource work to cheap writers.
Can I choose which backlinks I want?
Yes! Authors will review your project and apply with relevant proposals. Simply review the proposals you receive and accept the one(s) you want!
Is Link-able good for local link building?
While you may get some proposals from authors to build local links, we’re currently not ideal for local link building yet.
Can I tell authors what anchor text my link should have?
Yes, but we’d recommend leaving the anchor text up to the author’s discretion on "how" they’d like to link to you. We've found this results in the best and most natural type of backlink. However, we’ll leave that up to you and the author to work out!
Is Link-able white hat?
Authors on our platform typically build backlinks via outreaching and guest blogging to create powerful PR, direct referral traffic, brand awareness, authority, and other benefits. Guest blogging is nothing new and many popular SEO agencies utilize guest blogging with their own in-house writers to build backlinks for their clients. If you're seeking dofollow links, it's difficult to say if this is white hat or not. According to Google's Webmaster Guidelines, Google states: "Large-scale article marketing or guest posting campaigns with keyword-rich anchor text links" are considered to be a link scheme. Technically, if you're not building guest blogging links in mass or using keyword rich anchor text, it's not considered a violation. Regardless, all authors on our platform are prohibited from paying publishers for placing dofollow links (buying backlinks) in our terms of service and we manually review each link built to ensure the highest quality possible. Each link is only added if it is relevant and will never appear spammy, promotional, or paid for in any way. Furthermore, you're always free to ask the author on how they plan on building your link.
Can I work with multiple authors?
Absolutely! This is actually preferred as it creates a very natural link building process. Every author is different and has their own unique writing style and personality. Working with a mix of random authors will result in building different links in different ways to your website.
How do I pay authors?
Paying authors for their work is quick, safe, and easy. You simply submit the author’s payment on our platform via Stripe. We’ll hold the author’s payment in escrow and won’t release the funds until the job is successfully completed.
Can I get a refund?
All payments are final once placed since it would be unfair to ask for a refund once the author has already started working. However, you will get a refund if the author cancels or can’t successfully complete their work.
Is there some sort of guarantee?
Yes, you are 100% protected by our Link-able Guarantee. This means we’ll hold the author’s payment in escrow and guarantee that the author will do the work as agreed upon and stated within their application. If not, you’ll get a full refund and the author will not get paid. Furthermore, we’ll continue to hold the author’s payment for 30 days after completion in case any disputes arise.
Will my backlinks be high-quality?
Yes! This is something we take very seriously at Link-able. We guarantee each link meets our quality standards and we manually review the work of each author you hire. Each author is required to submit their work to Link-able for review before publishing it. If it does not meet our standards, we’ll request revisions. If they fail to revise and improve it to our standards, you’ll get a full refund and we’ll even consider banning the author from our platform. We carefully vet and only accept skilled authors who produce quality work.
How do I get started?
Simply sign up for a client account and post your first project to get started. We'll then start showing your project to relevant authors and you'll begin receiving proposals from those who can build incredible quality backlinks for you!

How much can I earn for building a single link?
The cost of a backlink typically depends on a variety factors, such as the DA (Domain Authority) of the website you can build the link on and the link attribute (dofollow or nofollow). In general, the more popular and authoritative the website is, the more you'll earn. Most authors on our platform earn an average of $375 for each link they can build, but earnings can range anywhere from $150 to $1000, depending on the budget of the client.
Can I set my own price?
Yes, we allow you to set your own price. If you’re unsure what to charge, we also provide a suggested price based off of the current industry rates.
Is there a limit on the number of links I can build or the amount I can earn?
There is no limit on any of these. You can build as many links as you can (as long as it's relevant and makes sense to do so) and you can also earn as much as you can make. The sky is the limit!
How much does Link-able cost?
Link-able is completely free to use. However, like most freelance job platforms, Link-able takes a percentage of your earnings so that we can maintain our platform and continue providing quality jobs for our authors.
How do I get paid?
Anytime a client hires you to do a job, we require that they deposit the full funds ahead of time, before any work has started. We’ll hold the funds in escrow to ensure that the client will pay you for your work, and also to ensure that you will do the work you’re hired to do. This fairly protects both parties. Once you’ve successfully completed your work, we’ll release your payment to you via Stripe. Note that we do have a 30-day guarantee in place for clients, which means you’ll need to wait roughly one month after you’ve fully completed your job before getting paid.
Can I build nofollow links?
Yes, but it depends on what the clients need. Some clients may want dofollow links for SEO while others are ok with nofollow links for PR and direct traffic. Every client’s needs are different.
What if I only guest blog occasionally?
That’s ok! You can still join Link-able and find jobs for when you do decide to guest blog!
How do I get started?
Simply apply for your Link-able author account. After your account is approved (we will need to manually review your application and check your writing experience), you can then sign into your account and get started!
