Link Building this Week (18.2008)

2 May

I’m pretty sure that I’ve never seen ‘David Hasselhoff’ and ‘how to get more links’ in the same blog post, but Debra managed to do this. While that (and the examples she lists) may may sound funny, Debra’s main point –“the hardest part of my job is telling someone you won’t be able to secure the authority links they so desperately want because their site is a boring, forgettable mess”– is sad, but true. You can try to be creative in order to get a link profile that’s as natural as possible, but having to explain to your customer that their baby is too ugly to get links is a whole different ballgame…

If you have a blog and hate the ‘great post’ or ‘thanks for info’ comments as much as I do, please do the same as I do: send an email to the commenter’s address with a link to both SearchMarketingSage’s post about Dofollow link building and to DoshDosh’ great article about Rethinking blog comments. That’ll teach ’em. (well, probably not, but it’s worth a try :) )

    Thanks for the mention Wiep. This is a very interesting concept for a blog.
