Copy our Google Sheet template here ►
In this tutorial, you’ll learn some Google Sheets formulas you can use to automate parts of your link building.

The example template we’ll be building will be to kick off a guest posting campaign in 15-minutes. In order to do that, you’ll need three data points.

The URL or domain of the prospect
Someone’s first name
and their last name.

You’ll learn which tools to use to acquire these data points within just a couple of minutes.

Once you have them, it’s time to create your own Google Sheets template and start getting backlinks.

If you’re an Ahrefs user, you can copy the sheet to your own Google Drive, follow the instructions on the Instructions tab and make reference to this video for specific steps.

Otherwise, you can follow along with the tutorial to set up Google Sheets for a guest posting campaign.

When you’re done, you’ll have a nice list of websites, names and email addresses you can add to your favorite outreach tool and start building some backlinks.

The best part is: you’ll be able to apply your Google Sheets knowledge to build other templates for link building in the future.

  1. Hey all. Hope you enjoyed the video. Here's a list of all formulas + the Google Sheet used in this tutorial. Enjoy 🙂

    Import just the title, URL, author name, and Domain Rating from a Content Explorer export

    =IFERROR(QUERY('CE Import'!B:P,"SELECT B,C,E,D WHERE D is not NULL AND D contains ' '"))

    Get the first word from a full author name


    Get the last word from a full author name

    =IFERROR(ArrayFormula(TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(D2:D," ",REPT(" ",100)),100))))

    Lookup email addresses to see if they're valid against your NeverBounce import

    =IFERROR(ArrayFormula(VLOOKUP(G2:G,'Email Validation'!A:B,2,FALSE)))

    NOTE: You may need to change cell references if any of the tools' export files changes over time.

  2. How to do keyword resarch?
    Ahrefs: use Google sheets formula like What's app text.
    Me: what Was that , I was dumb at Math formulas , is link building means formulas 😟

    Well Learn lot

  3. Great video but has this feedback been sent to the ahrefs dev team to provide this type of filtering and custom column ordering directly on the site to prevent these workflows from even being needed?
