SaaS Platform Semrush Announces The Acquisition of SEO Platform Backlinko.com


Semrush, one of the leading online visibility management SaaS platforms, has announced its acquisition of Backlinko. Backlinko.com is a marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO) training platform that boasts around half a million visits each month. It’s an impressive and beneficial addition for Semrush.

Semrush Adds Backlink.com Into The Mix

Established back in 2012, Backlinko.com quickly became a ‘go to’ place for digital marketers. It’s dedicated to video marketing, SEO training, link building and social media marketing. These are all things that are beneficial to a marketing and SEO training platform, such as Semrush.

As of December 2021, Backlinko.com boasts more than 500,000 visits of unpaid traffic each and every month. It is regularly regarded as being one of the top resources for training, advice and strategy information for digital marketers. As a respected and trusted resource, Backlinko.com is a worthwhile acquisition for Semrush. 

The company’s acquisition stems from Semrush’s desire to inspire current digital marketers and to encourage future digital markets into the industry. Digital marketers require high quality tools and training, and experts in the field are hugely beneficial. By bringing Backlinko.com into the Semrush family, the company can offer much more.


Andrew Warden, Chief Marketing Officer of Semrush, explained: “Brian Dean is considered one of the top digital marketing professionals , and we are thrilled to bring him and his team into the Semrush family.
