Link Building this Week (11.2008)

14 Mar

A very important (and often overlooked) step in the link marketing process, is identifying the linkerati. If you’re an in-hous, you’ll have to network your ass off and try to build connections with as many relevant journalists and bloggers as possible. If you build links for clients, you’ll have to do some research for every client and try to reach the most important ones. Next to using your own network, of course.

Still struggling with identifying the linkerati after reading Lyndon’s post? Than make sure to read the 17 tips for getting bloggers to write about you. This post at InformationWeek was written by Cory Doctorow, editor at BoingBoing, and therefore linkerati himself. Bookmark this post and print it out as well, because these tips are excellent. In fact, it’s a guide to getting links from BoingBoing :)

And also:

It was quite a long list this week, but feel free to leave a comment or to drop me a note if you think I still missed something that was worth mentioning ;)

    I have been working on the prinicpal of network connections for link building for some time. If you have strong copy writers at your disposal, you can turn those connections into tons of qualiy links. If you are just looking to create the network and influence it, the process could be less fruitfull.

    Aaron Wall also has a post on the “Official” demise of directories, using JoeAnt as an example of a quality directory that’s been hit recently. Post
