We analized the data for linked phrases with Google Search Console. We compared the period from September 26 to October 2 (a day before campaign start) to February 20 to 26, 2022.

All these are educational articles on health, interior or lifestyles websites:

Let’s dig deeper into the data now:


Semstorm is an SEO/SEM tool that is used to analyze and optimize websites for better visibility in search engine results.

We often use it to analize backlink profile as well as to draw conslusions regarsing the visibility and traffic.

The charts show 5 arrows representing the moments when articles were bought through Linkhouse.

The amounts allocated to the campaign by the client were relatively small: 145 USD, 157 USD, 120 USD, 110 USD, 145 USD.

The chart above shows the estimated traffic and the number of phrases in the TOP10. Estimated traffic is calculated based on positions and search volume, providing a more realistic visibility metric.

Changes in visibility, such as moving from TOP10 to TOP5, won’t be visible on the chart, so estimated traffic can indicate such changes.

Semstorm data is reliable and can be verified by everyone with an access to the tool.

Google Search Console

The chart above shows the total clicks for the entire website. The arrows indicate the start of each of 5 campaigns.

The corelation between clicks and link building campagins is directly visible.

Also, Google Search Console is a basic tool for analysing organic position of the website in the search engine.

Year on year increase

See below, the year-over-year increase in clicks (November 2021 to November 2022). It was 77% and was recored just asfter two link building campaigns.

Additionally, in the period from February 2022 to February 2023, there was an impressive 99% increase in clicks!

Core Web Vitals

It it worth noting that, the website does not meet Core Web Vitals requirements, which is why the report below shows 0% correct URLs.

Core Web Vitals are indicators developed by Google to visualize website quality.

The chart illustrates the indexing of the website according to Google Search Console. The number of indexed pages decreased by 20%.

The number of indexed pages has remained the same over the last 3 months. The website expansion did not have an impact on visibility and traffic. The increase in subpages at the end of February is related to products added to the website.

Link building campaign summary

External links are one of the three groups of algorithmic factors used by Google (the other two being technical elements and content). In the analyzed period, the changes mainly affected external links, which is why the effects of the link building efforts are visible on the linked URLs.

The website experienced a slight increase in visibility when the client started the campaign. Since then, a consistent growth has been maintained for both the website and, importantly, for the linked URLs, which are crucial from a business perspective. The links had a positive impact on blog articles, products, and categories.

We are also aware that during this period, Google released several algorithm updates (including the Helpful Content Update and SpamBrain). Updates are a natural part of the Google ecosystem, and what matters most is the effect we achieve after the updates, which is undeniably positive for the mentioned website.
