Considering the large amount of good link building related posts I came across last month, I’m officially declaring October the official month of link marketing; Linktober :)
If you rather not buy your way to the top, you’ll have to learn the art of web promoting. And this art starts by fully understanding why people share stuff with each other, and/ or how you can persuade them into doing so. From there on, you can move on to creating the right content and thinking about the right promotion strategy. The actual contacting of webmasters, either by phone or email, is the last (but also very important) part of the process.

PS – Lots of people I talk to about link building are always on the lookout for shortcuts. There. Aren’t. Any. Nifty tools like this come close, but it will always be lots of work.
PPS – Shaun Anderson is giving away free link building ebooks this week. Yes, that’s even more link building tips to digest.
