Link Building this Week (06.2008)

8 Feb

A great post I came across last week was Neyne’s post about unconventional link attributes. He discusses the temporal element of link value and illustrates this with the results of an experiment he performed. Although it’s (like Neyne states as well) not a sterile experimenting environment, the graphs are pretty interesting to see.

Another great post is Derek Edmond’s recap of Eric Enge’s link session at the SEO meetup in Arlington last week.This post offers a few great tips that you can use to improve your link profile, such as 6 tips to personalize your link request.

    While it wasn’t written this past week, I daresay that I came up with something original on using N grams to vary your anchor text in the recent past. All that being said, I missed a bunch of good ones that you obviously didn’t, so thanks, Wiep!

    Oh, err, the n grams thing … that’s here:

    Hey Weip,
    Good recap. Would you mind adding to your radar?

    Of course next time I will spell Wiep correctly:)

  6. Wiep February 11, 2008 at 7:16 pm #

    Derek; You’re welcome

    Gab; Nice post, I don’t know why I missed that one though…

    Arnie; Call it a coincidence, but I stumbled upon your website earlier this week and it sure is on my radar. Oh, and you’re certainly not the first one to spell Weip in stead of Wiep :P

    Nice little round up you got there. I had not come across Neyne’s post yet, so big thanks for pointing out such a gem.

    When you first add a link or a bunch of links the site in question jumps in indexes quite rapidly to go down slowly and stabilize at a lower position later on. You should read the whole article to get more insight.
