Link Building this Month (10.2009)

2 Nov

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 :)

Let’s start with one of the best posts I’ve read in a while – Gab’s 101 link buying tips. Whether you buy links or not, there are lots of useful tips in there for everyone!

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.

And also:

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.

    Thanks for another great summary.

    I’ve been reading up on linking so much later and I couldn’t believe all the things I was doing wrong. Just by making a couple of changes from as simple as putting in targeted keywords in the link to the quality of the links.

    I am looking forward to next month’s summary and thanks for sharing!
