Link Building this Month (04.2010)

4 May

Using the right link building tools can make link building so much easier. And I don’t necessarily mean the tools that most people have already heard of, but it’s the smaller, lesser-known tools that can make a difference. Luckily, Debra has shared another bunch of non-standard, outside of the box link building tools, which you can use to build amazing backlinks.

The biggest ‘problem’ with tools, however, is that tools can’t do the thinking for you. Tools can provide data, but you’ll have to analyze most data yourself. Tools can provide insights, but you’ll have to draw conclusions yourself. Tools can provide link targets, but you’ll have to do the negotiating and/ or cold calling yourself. Obviously, this is a good thing, as this is the point where creativity comes into play.

And also:

PS – If you think I missed one or more interesting link building articles last month, feel free to mention it in the comments ;)

    Yo ho brother Wiep – thanks for the round up as always. Garrett was on a tear huh? Anyway, thought I’d take you up on the offer and mention that there was a section and resources (of course) on link spam in a WS post I dropped;

    As with the rest of the post, it is always good to gain insight into how penalties/filters/dampening might work. Oui?

    Anyway, submitted for your consideration ;0)

    Have a great week if I don’t see ye around.

    Nice list as every month :D Ken Lyon’s one is my favorite.

    For what is worth I have written about what content attract links: (trying to go a bit beyond text).
