Where I used to link to other great link building related posts every week, this is the very first edition of Link Building this Month.
One of the best link building posts I came across last month is actually a presentation. Affiliate Summit published Wil Reynold‘s presentation titled ‘Changing the way we build links‘. Not only does Wil provide a few excellent tips, but he scored bonus points for embedding a photo of David Hasselhoff in a presentation about link building.
Garrett French, who has been nominated for a SEMMY recently with his guide to getting maximum link value from your content, recently launched a new blog at Ontolo.com. This month, he published articles about using link prospect segmentation to create content, conversations and high rankings, 12 powerful offers that build links in your link acquisition phase and 8 purchase influence indicators for links that influence rankings and purchase decisions. If you’re interested in reading slightly different posts about link building, I’d recommend subscribing to his blog.
Three interesting posts from the search engine algorithm category: Marios Alexandrou walked through a document about improving web spam classifiers using link structure and both Dave Harry and Bill Slawski discussed patents on reciprocal links.
- Rand Fishkin tested the value of anchor text optimized internal links
- Peter Young listed several link building tactics, including a few examples of some of these tactics
