Specialist Link Building Agency for SaaS and Ecommerce

Rank Higher

Links remain one of the most important ranking signals. We manually outreach and build high-quality and topically relevant links that help rank your pages and content higher in Google.

FACT: Links continue to dominate the other ranking factors

Of course, the quality and relevance of your content, on-page optimization or technical SEO play a critical role in your site’s success in the organic search too.

But all things being equal, a site with a stronger backlink profile will always outrank its competition.

So, building and maintaining a strong and healthy link profile is crucial for achieving significant search visibility and driving higher organic traffic and leads.

As a backlink building agency, we have the expertise and knowledge to acquire the best white hat and topically-relevant backlinks to boost your authority, rankings, traffic, and leads. 

We’ve been helping amazing and growth-hungry SaaS and Ecommerce brands 10X their backlink outreach and get more links since 2010. Our outreach campaigns have helped clients increase domain authority and rank their critical content and pages higher in Google.

This, in turn, translated into greater organic traffic, attracted more relevant visitors, and delivered our clients more leads and sales.

We’d love to do the same for you too.

Our clients benefit from having lots of links from sites like these...

Link building testimonial.

“Link building is so tough! We’ve tried to outreach and secure links ourselves but we’ve quickly discovered how difficult and time-consuming it is to drive any significant results, particularly when you don’t have much experience. Pawel helped us scale link building efforts beyond what we thought was possible.

Pawel has an extensive network in SaaS (sometimes I feel like he knows everyone in the industry!!!!) and amazing outreach skills. With that, he’s been building high-quality and relevant links every month that keep pushing our content higher in rankings.

Honestly, if you’re looking to promote your content in Google or any other search engine, I can’t think of anyone better than Pawel to do it!”

Who We Are

Smashing Rankings is a bespoke link building agency based in Ireland. We help SaaS, ecommerce and online brands increase rankings for their most valuable content and web pages by manually outreaching and building high-quality, topically relevant backlinks. 

We specialize in building links to landing pages, category and product pages, website pages, guides, lead generation content, blog posts and more. 

In other words, we are not a typical SEO agency – a jack of all trades, master of none. We don’t provide any other marketing services apart from acquiring high-quality links for clients, and I’m proud to say that we’re really good at it.

Who We Help

We work with startups and established brands, developing custom link building strategies to each client based on our background in sales and cold outreach as well as years of experience in link building and email outreach. 

Our outreach campaigns and link building services focus on building backlinks based on three principles:

  • We build links from topically-relevant websites only , 
  • Each link must offer the strength and authority your campaign requires, and
  • Links must also offer traffic generation potential.

Additional services we offer include backlink audits and link profile cleanups.

What makes Smashing Rankings different?

A handshake icon communicating how our SEO agency is ideal for SaaS marketing teams.

Ideal for SaaS in-house teams

We’ve cut our teeth working side-by-side SaaS marketing teams and have processes that make achieving incredible results a breeze for you.

Extensive SaaS Industry Relationships

We’ve been working with SaaS brands since 2014 exclusively. As a result, we have a deep understanding of the industry plus hundreds of existing relationships with SaaS brands and blogs that we leverage in your campaign.

Background in Sales

Our background in sales and cold emailing means that we know how to write outreach email sequences that get response, simply. (In fact, our founder has written a book for SMBs wishing to get started with cold emailing.)

Focus on Meaningful Connections

We do not blast hundreds of outreach emails at once and hope for the best. Instead, we choose link prospects carefully and send personalized pitches, tailored to the person we contact, to ensure 10X success rate.

100% Confidentiality

We work in the shadows. None of the link prospects we contact on your behalf will ever know that you’ve worked with an agency.

Can we work together?

We hope so. But we also know that our link building services are not a good fit for everyone.

Depending on your goals or expectations, we might not be the partner you seek. Or the way we work might not match what you’re looking for in a link building agency either.

So, below we’ve listed information to help you assess whether we’re the right link building agency for your needs.

We might be a good fit if:

  • You have clear marketing goals to reach,
  • You have existing pages or content to promote,
  • You have an in-house person responsible for marketing. It could be the owner or another non-marketing person; we don’t mind, as long as there is a single, dedicated contact inside your team who will take the ownership of the project on your end.
  • You are ready to invest in link building over several months to achieve the long-term, sustainable growth.
