Link Building this Week (19.2008)

9 May

Planning is a skill that every marketer should have, but only a few are actually good at this. I certainly am not, but Debra Mastaler apparently sure is. How on earth can you work on a new design, write three excellent posts (Is traffic the new Pagerank? No!, It’s hip to be link square and Falling in love with link love), run a company AND keep your clients happy?!? Respect!

An interesting discussion is the one that Hugo Guzman (partially) started, with his post about how clients can help you with the link building campaign they’ve hired you for. Brian Turner mentioned a few excellent points in his reply to Hugo’s post; Why link building is risk management. In my opinion, the ideal situation is, like Dana Larson added later on in the discussion as well, that a link marketer should work together with the client to get the best links possible.

    Thanks for the mention, Wiep!

    I do want to point out that Brian Turner misrepresented my post. I never suggested that the client do any link building on their own. What I suggested is that the client can leverage existing relationships in the market vertical to help secure links.

    Sounds like I need to put together a follow up post…
