Hey Designer Shows How Even The Simplest Ideas Can Pick Up Links

966 Backlinks

Though I’ve shared a number of content curation success stories on this site, it still surprises me how well it can work.

Hey Designer put together a separate blog-like page on their website which simply curates the best resources related to Flexbox — a framework for web designers.

Despite its simplicity, the page has picked up 966 links from some of the biggest sites in their niche like WebPageFX.com, Speckyboy.com and even the official site, CSSFlexbox.com.

If you’re in a niche that is saturated with content on the same topic, this could be your chance to not only add value, but stand out in your space as well.

The best part is that you can reach out to everyone you’ve linked to and let them know about the page as well.

Some other examples of how you could replicate this idea include:

  • A curated collection of the best keyword research resources (SEO)
  • A curated collection of the best guides on where to go in Japan (Travel / Tourism)
  • A curated collection of the best homebrewing beer guides (Drink / Lifestyle)
  • A curated collection of the best curated collections (Internet Marketing)

OK I’m joking with the last one. Maybe.

Keep the design clean and simple and be sure to include a solid number of sources so that your offering has more value and you have a greater number of webmasters to tell about it.
