SEO helps HVAC companies develop their brand by increasing website traffic and improving visibility on search engines. Content marketing, web design, social media, and local mapping all contribute to an overall SEO strategy for contractors. An additional element to SEO that cannot be underestimated is link building. Not only is it a fundamental part of website development but is also a primary way in which search engines interpret domain authority. Link building consists of the following:
- Entity Links: Navigation to URLs of company related entities such as social media pages, review pages, etc.
- Inbound Links (Backlinks): Navigation from a third party source leading to your website
- Internal Links: Navigation from one page on your website, to another
- Outbound Links (External): Navigation from your website to a third party source (non-company)

Why Link Building Is Important To Your HVAC Website
Link building is a method of forming URL navigation from one web location to another. Links are the basis of web browsing and direct users to their preferred destinations as they explore all the internet has to offer. Just as links help users browse the internet, they help search engines interpret websites and properly index them for optimal search results. Building links is important to HVAC website for the following reasons:
- Branding: Establish your brand online through authoritative associations
- Navigation: Internal links help users more easily navigate your website
- Relationships: Network with other companies to build authority and earn trust
- Traffic: Gain referral traffic from inbound links
Google crawlerbots use links to gather website information and discover new pages. This information is used to form rankings on search engine results pages (SERPs). While on page content is very important, it is much more marketable with a proper link structure. One factor Google is known to prioritize is the quality of backlinks. These inbound links from third party domains to your website, help establish trust and authority through association. Needless to say, the goal is to associate with high quality URLs rather than spam. At HVAC Webmasters we manage backlinks to ensure that your website is maintaining a quality link profile. We follow Google guidelines to disavow backlinks from low quality sources.
Key Factors of Quality Link Building
Though link quantity is a factor in building domain authority, generating random links will not help your website. In fact, Google reserves the right to penalize your website for such behavior. As part of their algorithm updates through the years, Google has cracked down on link schemes, link spam, and any other variation of manipulative linking practices. Instead of resorting to those unethical behaviors, HVAC websites should focus on the following:
- Anchor Text: Anchor text is the words or phrase from which the link originates on a web page, and taking advantage of keywords can increase its impact
- Authoritative Links: Links from larger websites hold more weight and if they are well-known, it will increase your ranking significantly
- Link Placement: Having links appear in the content of your web pages, is fundamental to ranking
- Relevant Links: Links on your webpages should be relevant to the heating and cooling industry
