Backlinks Acquired Through Outreach
Hispanic Scholarships for Students

URLs that end in .gov or .edu are recognized and trusted by Google to be of high authority. It is not likely that random people will have access to these URLs. It’s a great tactic and many businesses utilize this technique to build their backlink profile.

Links from Latino Career Service websites
There are Spanish and bilingual job sites as well as Diversity job fairs. These Jobs and Careers for Latino Professionals present a link building opportunity for your business. By posting job boards in iHispano.com or Latpro, you can earn backlinks from high-authority job sites.
Links from Wikipedia
Here is another way to receive links that are of high quality to add to your profile. Wikipedia is the seventh most visited page on the Internet and ranks quite high as a search result every single time. The links that you can acquire from Wikipedia and Wikipedia en español will be connected to the blog posts and resource pages on your site, either from body text or the external links section of wiki pages. But it’s important you follow the editorial guidelines to add Wikipedia:External links.
Benefits of creating a Wikipedia page and backlinks are many, including:

- Influences People more than your Website
- Always appears in top search results
Reclamation of Links
The tactic of link reclamation is another option that does not require a ton of work. Instead, you will need to do a little bit of data mining and outreach. Your job will consist of acquiring uncredited brand mentions. The results of this search will show all of the websites that have mentioned your company. There are also mention monitoring services (Google Alerts) that will notify you each time you are mentioned by other sites and blogs. You can contact the webmasters and ask them for a backlink to your source page earning valuable backlinks. Remember that Bloggers and Influencers are your friends.
Affiliate Link Building
This is the last technique for link building in the Outreach category. We can navigate through all of the articles by there location, when they were written, topics and domain authority. After we gather all the information we need, we can then send out the emails needed to start our affiliate link building. However, I don’t blame you if you don’t place this tactic at the top because the affiliate links are mostly nofollow links and the workload and time efforts to acquire them may not be as cost-effective.
Backlinks That Are Submission-Based
The Use of Infographics
Good infographics are often shared by viewers. You can find located on HubSpot three blog posts that show you how to develop infographics that people want to share. To create more resources through guest blogging opportunities, make use of infographics. When you opt for infographics you don’t have to present new blog posts to everyone that you reach out to. Also, if you have a bilingual website, you can create English- and Spanish-language versions of your infographics, that way you can expand your reach to cover the entire spectrum of Latinos. The more you create valuable sharable content, the more people will link to your web pages.
Hispanicize Wire Submissions
