Building backlinks for your brand by collaborating with other brands is termed collaborative link building. Here, a collaboration may refer to a backlink exchange (reciprocal link exchange/3 way link exchange) or a guest post exchange. Some of the world’s biggest brands are building links to each other to help build each other’s authority online.
Ahrefs studied the data of 140K+ websites getting 10K+ monthly organic traffic and checked for overlap between the sites they link to and the sites that link to them. The results were interesting – 73% of the sites had reciprocal links. Reciprocal links are a byproduct of the web. Don’t be afraid to ask for links from sites you are already linking to.
