Link Building this Month (02.2010)

1 Mar

The long winter days seem to have kept quite a few folks inside, considering the large amount of great in-depth link building articles I came across last month. When even Bing starts writing about link spam, you know it must be pretty cold outside…

Although I don’t spend as much time on online marketing forums as I used to, I still try to read the most interesting threads on a few forums. WebmasterWorld is one of these forums, and threads like this link building case study thread are the reason why. And if you happen to like reading case studies just as much as I do, here’s two more.

Another great read is this NY Times article about a Penn study on virality. The researchers studied a list of well-e-mailed articles, checking it every 15 minutes for over 6 months, analyzing the content of thousands of articles and checking for factors like the placement in the paper or on the Web home page. Great stuff…

    I particularly enjoyed the Blogging Etiquette link — thanks for sharing.

    On another note, I hitch-hiked through Eindhoven when I was in my early twenties…

    It is rare these days to come up on a blog post with a series of links that cause excitement and child like excitement to read, digest and implement some or all of the wisdom gleaned. This blog post is whopper sized in beefy, healthy, eager to read link techniques. This is excellent late night reader and appreciate your post.
