In stead of listing the most interesting topics of the past week, this is the first time that I’ll post the most interesting image of last week.
Masterbaiter Lyndon Antcliff caused quite a lot of stir when he published that the news item about a boy ordering hookers with a stolen credit card was in fact a linkbait. Jonathan Crossfield almost instantly responded asking if this is a ‘right’ approach, but with 500k in traffic and over 1,600 links, you can’t deny that it was a very successful linkbait.
- Patrick Altoft explains how you can build a link building machine
- Do you have a team of link builders (or other employees)? Justilien gives tips on how to keep them motivated
- Based on Pierre Far’s findings, a Digg front page will bring you near 1,200 links within a month on average
- This week’s Link Week column was titled ‘An embarassement of dead link riches‘
- Loren Baker asked if it’s worth joining the Yahoo Directory for $299/yr (and got some interesting reactions)
- Angela Moore explains why you shouldn’t be worried if you see that your link numbers are dropping
- One that I missed earlier is Brian Chappell’s post about when you should be worried if you’re buying links
