Link Building this Week (09.2008)

29 Feb

With lots of folks at the SES last week and the SMX this week, it’s pretty quiet with new link building related posts. On the other hand, that does leave room for recaps of the link related SMX sessions and posts from others as well.

While some say that it’s impossible to harm your competitors with spammy links, I’d say that it’s near impossible. Only in some cases, for example with new websites or when your competitor has been naughty himself, I think that it’s possible to do some serious damage. In all other cases, you probably would have to invest a lot of time if you really want to hurt your competitor. And you might want to use that time to promote your own website in stead…

    Hi Wiep,

    Thanks for the inclusion. As the competition and rewards become greater for the top few spots in the SERPs, competitors will become more cut throat. Hopefully it doesn’t get too ugly.

    Jug; you’re welcome, it was a good post!

    Dave; The more frustrated people get that they can’t reach one of those top spots, the more desperate they will get. And desperate people can often in very ugly situations…
