I've read multiple articles about on-page/off-page SEO optimization and whatnot.
The thing that bothers me the most is linkbuilding.
Seems like there's no any meaningful info about linkbuilding besides that it's great to be mentioned on a "high authority" website. This way Search Engines will know that your website is a trusted source and your article is relevant to some topic, and so on and so forth.
However, what about getting links from smaller websites? Like small personal blogs or software blogs that are relatively new / don't have massive traffic, etc.
E.g. I'm running a blog for a SaaS that is a Twitter scheduling tool. Will it benefit me if my posts are mentioned on a relatively small blog of the same nature? Like if another social media scheduling tool mentiones my product and links to my website or blog posts. Or a somewhat notorious marketer mentions my product or blog post in their blog.
The thing that I'm curious about is that such similar tool / notorious marketer's blogs have to be relatively small, and shall not have like 100k visits per month or whatever is considered huge amount of traffic.
Does any body know the answer or can, at least, guide me through?
