Your backlinks deserve higher DA.

At LinkGraph, we specialize in high-authority link building in contextually-relevant publications. Where links from The Hoth cap out at DA 50, we secure placements with DA 60-90+ , meaning better quality links and faster growth for your site. Unlike many link vendors, the majority of our content placements appear fully organic without guest post attribution. This editorial strategy lets us earn your site topically relevant links that improve your site’s rankings for the long-haul.

Your content deserves better writers.

Our editorial team of 50+ writers, journalists, academics, creatives, and content strategists write long-form articles, guest posts, and blog posts with a literary voice appropriate for premier, industry-specific publications. Unlike at the Hoth, you don't have to pay more for better writers. All of our content is written by the same team of highly-experienced content creators who ensure that the content where your link appears looks good and reads well.

Your team deserves more transparency.

At LinkGraph, we know transparency is important, so we created our customer dashboard that allows you to track the progress of your link building campaign in real-time. Our reporting shows your keyword rankings before and after each round of link acquisition. This way, you have full visibility into the process and can easily measure the results. It also allows us to show off our hard work and amazing digital PR skills.

Your company deserves more attention.

Our campaign managers provide the individualized, tailored strategy your site deserves. At LinkGraph, there's no ordering links off a landing page. We communicate directly with our clients so we can learn your growth and revenue goals prior to our link acquisition. We help clients identify the high-value keywords in their industry to ensure every white-hat guest post or marquee publication serves your backlink profile with relevant and diverse anchor text. Along with amazing results, our customer service is unmatched.

Additional Services to Get your Site to Page 1

LinkGraph is a full-service SEO, digital marketing, and web design agency. Beyond link building and SEO services, your campaign manager will look comprehensively at your site to ensure your keyword research is on track, your HTML code is optimized, and your web design and development provides optimal page experience for users and search engine crawlers. From local SEO to enterprise-level digital PR, we work with brands and business owners of all sizes.

There is Only One Right Way to do Link Building

Not all links are created equally. Although Hoth X Managed SEO is marketed as a white-hat service, their low-budget link options are not future-proof, because they are built on spammy blogspots with lower DAs. Many reviews of the Hoth will mention quality customer service but frustration with the links. The Hoth X’s core product just does not perform.

There is more to a quality backlink than just DA. High-quality links must come from reputable sites with topical relevance to yours, with active users and social engagements, and appear in-content on a page with PageRank. The Hoth X does not deliver on all of these necessities, and as a result, some of their low-quality links can even cause your website to be penalized.

It’s understandable why many webmasters are hesitant about link building: Because they have been disappointed by working with a legitimate seo company only to receive a subpar product. At LinkGraph, we take pride in restoring confidence in the power of white-hat link building to get increased traffic and conversions. Because of the comprehensive digital marketing and web design services we also bring to the table, we’re confident we far exceed any link building services Hoth X advertises.

How do the Hoth Foundations and the Hoth Boost compare to LinkGraph Campaigns?

These two Hoth services still cap out their links at DA 50, and don’t guarantee quality or active user engagement that your backlinks need. Hoth Foundations provides contextual links, but still on blogspots and through guest post attribution, weakening the strength of your links in comparison to ours. The Hoth X (or the discontinued Hoth Mega) similarly lack the product quality your site needs to have sustainable SEO improvement.


Do you deliver links in 30-days like the Hoth?
We do! But unlike the Hoth, LinkGraph gets you higher-quality links, great service, and all in the same timeframe.
Is your pricing similar to the Hoth?
Like the Hoth, LinkGraph offers competitive pricing, but for higher-quality links that don't go away. Most of the links you can purchase from the Hoth will appear on blogspots with guest post attribution, but we focus on marquee and premier publications that have more relevance to your industry niche. Depending on the level of seo services you need, we can design a link building campaign with your budget in mind.
Do you have tiered-pricing for content writers like the Hoth?
No. Because we specialize in high-quality link building, every piece of content we place requires the expertise of high-quality content writers. Unlike the Hoth, our white hat guest posts and articles all get the same level of attention and quality. Regardless of the amount of links you order or the size of your campaign, every guest post, blog post, or long-form article where your link appears has the quality writing necessary of evergreen content that lasts the test of time.
Do you have SEO tools like the Hoth?
We do. Our full-suite of free SEO tools is available in your customer dashboard. Do keyword research, check your backlink profile, or optimize your landing page copy with our proprietary software suite. You can also add the LinkGraph Chrome extension and check the content score of your landing page with 1 click.
How long are the contracts for your SEO services?
We don't require clients to lock into any year long contracts here. Whether you need our SEO services for 30 days or for the long-term, we work with clients to design campaigns that best serve them.
Does LinkGraph do local SEO?
Our local SEO services range from an existing citations audit, to GMB listings, to geo-targeted link building and guest posts. We have helped hundreds of businesses rank #1 for local searches.
