We help you to leverage this awesome platform to earn quality, not-gross backlinks from high-authority websites, boosting your website’s integrity in the eyes of your target audience and Google, and promoting your content to the top of the search results.

Terkel — everybody wins!
Journalists and writers are looking for people like you, and businesses just like yours.
They just can’t find you!
What’s in it for them? Your expertise.
Writers and editors have the challenging task of publishing a high volume of content every day.
These articles are being published on serious websites with a long history and a reputation to uphold, so they need to maintain a high standard of quality too.
It’s a difficult task to do alone, so to add value to their articles, and find expert insights, they rely on digital PR platforms like Terkel and HARO.
These platforms allow them to connect with a wide range of business owners, technical experts, influencers and authors, who help to add value to their content.
They do this by requesting insights and quotes from people like yourself.
Responses are typically short but need to be on topic and packed full of value. Oftentimes, thousands of people are responding in a short period of time, so to stand out you need to add a lot of value.
What’s in it for you? Link juice — the good stuff that helps your rankings!
The fastest method of safe link building
While not everyone is responding to Terkel for the purpose of getting backlinks, the platform isn’t a secret anymore.
Terkel is fast becoming a high competition method of organic link building as it’s one of the fastest when it comes to getting links published.
When responding to queries, everyone in the process needs to be considered:
- writers, and
Do everything right and you’ll be rewarded for the effort.
So is there a catch? Well, yes.
Link building via Terkel demands a lot of time, creativity, attention to detail, punctuality, and unique insights.
Competition is intense, and if you want to leverage Terkel to your advantage, you’ll need to be very methodical about how you work with the platform.
Cut corners, and your chances of getting backlinks are slim — no matter how much time you put in. Yeah, you can respond day after day, week after week and not have a thing to show for it.
The good news is that our team of trained ghost writers are ready to take care of your Terkel responses.
We know exactly how to get the results you’re looking for, as we use Terkel for ourselves and our clients every day.
Terkel link building best practices
Terkel queries receive thousands of responses each day. It’s obvious then, that, sifting through so many responses and finding something of value is a challenging task. The last thing you want to do is send a response that is generic, and lacking insight.
The key to getting published and scoring backlinks is to give both the writer and their readers a fresh point of view, while also giving them everything that they need.
Here are some best practices that we’ve identified during our time working with Terkel, HARO, Profnet, Sourcebottle and similar online PR platforms.
Time is of the essence when building links with Terkel. You really need to send responses at the earliest opportunity. The later you send your query, the smaller your chance of getting published.
Even if a request is even 24 hours old, it may be too late!
Our team is responsible for finding the right queries for your personality, ghostwriting your response, and replying on your behalf, on time.
Be relevant and valuable
The rule of thumb is to respond to queries within your niche and area of expertise. When we respond to queries, we aim for them to relate to your business and personal brands.
The more relevant they are, the higher your chances of getting a mention.
Of course, relevancy is subjective. Links from sites in related niches are still links. If we think we can get you a quality link by contributing a valuable point of view to a “fringe niche”, we’ll do it.
Keep it brief
It’s vital to keep responses short, crisp, and valuable. Your response may have substance, but if it’s a 25,000 word dissertation, it’s unlikely to get a mention.
The journalist simply doesn’t have the time to read through your response to find the gold that they need.
We go to the effort of researching each and every media outlet, in order to get a clearer picture as to what they want. Some are looking for a 2 sentence quote, while others may need longer than this.
It’s common for valuable responses with so much potential to be rejected just because they weren’t succinct enough.
If you want to get noticed, get to the point.
Our team is obsessed with crafting highly quotable, effective replies that writers and content managers love.
Cut the filler words
When we send out your responses, we’re critical about any words that don’t add value.
When the opportunity to drop value bombs is often limited to a small number of words, removing words that don’t add value is a key skill.
Add a great profile
Terkel makes it easy by requiring key information about you and your business when joining their platform. You can’t forget the basics, though!
A high quality headshot and link to a professional LinkedIn profile goes a very long way.
You don’t want to miss out on a link because of a low-res profile photo, or because the author thinks you might be a fake personality.
It goes without saying that if you want a backlink, don’t forget to add your website URL!
Common Terkel mistakes
A key benefit of hiring Dialed Labs to look after your Terkel SEO campaign is that you’ll avoid the many mistakes that people make when first using the platform.
Some of these include…
Contributing to low authority websites
Some of the sites within the Terkel database are very low-authority websites, and you don’t really want a link from them.
Your goal should be to win links from high-quality publications — ideally DR40 or above.
When we’re identifying the topics to write for, we filter them to be sure that we actually want a link from that website.
This process has helped us to win links up to DR96.
Waiting too long
As we’ve mentioned before, time is of the essence on Terkel. If you want the mention, don’t delay on the response.
It’s a simple rule, but not as simple in execution. We’re set up to ensure your responses are being sent rapidly, and we’re confident this helps us to land more links for people like yourself.
Lack of editing
Everyone makes mistakes. In writing this, I’m worried how many are on this page alone! 😅
Pitching your point of view on Terkel with easy to spot spelling or grammar errors isn’t going to do you any favors.
Our editors proofread the responses that are ghostwritten in your name before they are sent out to minimize this risk.
Our site has been on a continuous growth trend since!
One of the key things that held our site back from page 1 rankings was our backlink profile. We didn’t have enough high authority backlinks.
We understand the importance of SEO, but simply don’t have the time to do the work internally.
After speaking with Dialed Labs about our situation, we chose to build white hat links via their Help a Reporter Out service.
It took a few months to run its course but they certainly over-delivered. Our site has been on a continuous growth trend since then!
Terkel service FAQs
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about our Terkel link building service.
What exactly does this service include?
Here’s what’s your can expect:
- Premium access to Terkel, HARO, HaB2BW, ProfNet, and SourceBottle,
- Exclusive access to publications that don’t use the platforms above
- Daily monitoring of all queries to find the right matches for your personality
- A guarantee that we’ll always respond to the number of queries you’re paying for each month
- Real-time reporting of everything we’ve sent
- Real-time backlink tracking with Domain Rating metrics
- Email updates with published links as soon as they are discovered
What type of links can I expect?
Some come from DR90+ websites, while we aim to filter out anything that is DR20 or lower. The average Domain Rating of links earned via Terkel alone is DR50.
Other digital PR platforms may not convert as well but have higher averages, such as HARO at DR67, and Help a B2B Writer at DR70.
We filter out websites that we know will attribute your links with
ugc. Our goal is to win
dofollow links for your business, but it’s not as predictable as you might imagine.
Still, we feel a natural mix is important for showing Google that you’re not doing anything against the rules.
How many pitches will you send out each day?
It’s difficult to say. Some days it can include 10+, the next it may only be 1 or 2.
It all comes down to the number of request, and how many of these are relevant enough to your business or area of expertise.
Over a month however, you can be confident in our commitment to send 25, 50 or 75 responses, based on the plan you signed up for.
How long does it take to secure backlinks through Terkel?
Terkel is one of the faster methods of winning white-hat backlinks, but the true answer is “we don’t know”.
Some niches have a high volume of search requests and are published faster than others.
If we talk about all of the online PR platforms that we’ll use in your campaign, typically responses are published in 30-90 days.
This is why your campaign really needs 2-3 months before you’ll see much clearer results.
The funny thing is, some links can take months, to the point where you’ve completely forgotten about it. We’ve even had links that are published 2 years after the initial response!
Is this type of backlink building considered white-hat?
Yep, these are
#ffffff. We don’t pay a cent for getting you mentioned in these articles (or the associated link).
The only thing that we pay for in running your campaigns are the premium subscriptions to each of the PR platforms.
Can Terkel be used along with other link building strategies?
Diversifying your link portfolio is always a good idea. When you buy our Terkel link building service, you’re also getting our efforts in building links on HARO, HaB2BW, Profnet and other digital PR platforms.
This then, fits in perfectly with other link-building methods like guest posting and is a great addition to your overall authority building strategy.
If Terkel is free, why should I pay an agency for it?
That’s a good question. While Terkel does have a free plan, you can’t really get meaningful results by using it. You really need a Premium plan, which is $99 per month.
From there, your decision depends on how much time you want to spend. You have finite time, and winning links through Terkel takes a lot of it!
If consistent monitoring and completing time-consuming tasks is on your list of things to do, then it may be worth doing yourself.
But if you’re serious about scaling your marketing and website’s traffic, it’s probably something you should delegate.
In addition to this, due to the high competition nature of one of the few sources of truly white-hat link building nowadays, you can’t really afford to make mistakes.
To make your efforts worthwhile, you need to be creative, insightful, quick, and keep quality high. Setting up system for this costs time, money, or both.
In that light. It makes sense to hire an agency like Dialed Labs. It comes with some other benefits as well:
- You’ll win more backlinks because we’ve done the hard work to learn how to make your Terkel responses stand out from the crowd.
- We already have the systems in place — just give us an email address and some information about yourself and your business, and we’ll hit the ground running.
- There’s nothing more to do. No monitoring queries, no need to write compelling pitches while you’re trying to feed the kids, no need to send them out ASAP. We’ve got you covered, and we’ll keep you updated.
Can I resell your Terkel service?
Absolutely! Many SEO agencies and freelancers use this service already, knowing they can trust us to do the work each and every month.
With this in mind, all of our services are built to be resold.
With the option of a white label pitch and link reporting dashboard to give to your clients, they’ll never know that Dialed Labs earned these links for you.
Who writes the responses?
Our team all take part in training with a huge “ghost writing” component. They write after taking time to consider your, or your clients’ personal and corporate brands into account.
Our editors will then review these responses, to be sure they bring value to the article they will be featured in. You don’t need to do a thing!
If you don’t secure any links, do I get a refund?
If after 3 months of starting this service you haven’t seen a DR20+
dofollow link, we’ll gladly refund your first 3 months.
