The Client

Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service focused on vacation rentals.

Industry: Travel

Location: San Francisco, California

Services Provided: Link Building


Airbnb knew they needed link building, but didn’t have the time to prioritize it internally. They were on the lookout for a link building partner they could trust with their recognizable brand.

Growth Summary

We were contacted to help Airbnb expand their link generation efforts and, more specifically, generate links to their city pages.

For a brand like Airbnb, links aren’t necessarily hard to come by. That said, what is hard to come by is links to their city pages such as “Austin vacation rentals.”

We ideated a process to monitor Airbnb searches online, identify opportunities to follow up and then ask for links to the site. Where location-specific opportunities existed, we asked for specific links to those relevant pages.

Using their experience in working with big brands, we were careful and precise around Airbnb sentiment online and made sure to only reach out to targets who had not mentioned the company before; we also mentioned the company in a positive light.

The results were outstanding. The three-month project resulted in 110+ earned links to the site and more than 40 links to their city pages.
