I Need Links, which was established in September 2012 by rising SEO star, Matthew Platt, has already established a vibrant client roster, having built over one million links in its first quarter. An SEO professional with over eight years experience in the Industry, Matthew has worked for some of the UK’s largest digital agencies, overseeing SEO strategies for big-brand clients, including, Lloyds TSB and Dennis Publishing.

Matthew Platt, founder and managing director, said: “The search marketing sector has stagnated over the years because too many operators have relied on automated methods of link building. Many have failed to develop their offerings by taking into account developments within Google’s indexing methods. The creative and digital industries are burgeoning, but the provision of services in this sector must also innovate alongside it.

“I Need Links has been established to offer an entirely different approach to link building. We guarantee never to use automation – all of our links are crafted by hand. The business is all about offering a bespoke, cost-effective suite of services that will function as either a standalone SEO strategy, or as part of a wider integrated campaign.”

Despite its fledgling status, I Need Links already employs over 140 staff, from its bases in Manchester and India. The firm boasts an extensive range of services, including guest blogger outreach, and niche link building, which is bespoke to the individual criteria of its customers. The company also offers SEO auditing, brand protection and reputation management as part of its comprehensive suite of services.

I Need Links will be sponsoring a number of industry events throughout 2013 and is set to announce the launch of a new white-label offering to digital marketers
