We’re only halfway during the summer, but I think that this years winner of the SEMMYs is already decided. Rae Hoffman collected the thoughts of 11 great link builders (just like she did two years ago) and compiled something that I would call link building awesomeness. That’s about 100 years of link building experience in one article, so you’d better read it, bookmark it, print it and read it again.
The reason why group interview articles are so great to read, is because they are usually packed with real life examples (not guesses or assumptions), case studies, tips from the field and some form of link building discussion. Any link building strategy tips, advice on how to do research, or content marketing guidance you get from such an article has already been tested an tuned, so you can use it straight away.
