How much does Link-able cost?
Link-able is free to join and use. However, you’ll naturally need to pay authors you hire for their work. Like many 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 their work?
This really depends on the individual author and the type of work done. For link building, the cost typically varies depending on several factors, such as 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. For content writing work, again, this depends on the author and the scope of work. Link-able is not ideal for those who have a low budget or looking to outsource work to cheap writers.
What kind of work can I hire authors for?
Essentially any kind of writing work that grows traffic! Primarily link building via guest blogging and content writing jobs such as blog writing, copywriting, video script writing, press release writing, product description writing, email marketing writing, social media writing, etc.
How do authors build my backlinks?
Most authors typically build backlinks via outreaching and guest blogging, but we allow any white hat link building techniques. You can always ask authors on how they plan on building your links just to be sure.
Is Link-able good for local link building?
While you may find some authors who can build local links for you on our platform, we’re currently not ideal for local link building yet.
Can I tell authors what url and anchor text my link should have?
Yes, we encourage clients to work closely with the author to discuss what your link building goals are and how you'd like to get referenced.
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:
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?
Of course! This is actually preferred as it creates a very natural and diverse link building process. Every author is different and has their own unique writing style, skills, and talents.
How do I pay authors?
Paying authors for their work is quick, safe, and easy. Simply deposit the author’s payment on Link-able and we’ll hold it (kind of like escrow) to ensure the author does the work as promised. Your payments are processed via Stripe, a popular and trusted 3rd party payment processing platform which accepts all major credit cards.
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
. Essentially, we hold the author’s payment and guarantee that the author will do the work as agreed upon and stated within their job contract. If not, you’ll get a full refund and the author will not get paid.
Will the author's work be high quality?
Yes! This is something we take very seriously at Link-able. We have strict link building rules and quality standards that all authors must adhere to for every job. If not, you’ll get a full refund and we’ll even consider banning the author from our platform.
How do I get started?
Simply sign up for a client account
and post your first project to get started. We'll review your project and then start connecting you with relevant authors who have the skills and talent needed for the job!
