A bit later than usual, but better late than no Link Building this Week at all…
A great post I came across last week is Garrett French’s Guide to getting maximum link value from your content. This bookmark worthy article details key strategies, tools and resources for maximizing the link value of your content. It sure is a great read with a few excellent pointers and tips (and a great blog title as well).
Another interesting read is Jim Boykin’s (you should blog more often! :) ) post about the Achilles Heel of free and natural links. Large websites that have been around for quite some time may have obtained hundreds of thousands or even millions of links. Jim explains why all these links don’t guarantee good rankings.
- Stoney DeGeyter discussed an often neglected part of link marketing; internal linking strategies
- Ian Lurie explains that StumbleUpon traffic IS worth something: links
- Optimizing web sites through ordered pair-based link analysis is part of Micheal Martinez’ link theory
- And another post by Michael Martinez: How to create value-passing links in volume
- Benj Arriola tried to explain why there is no penalty in getting many links quickly
- Sage Lewis talked about link building for dumb asses
- Gabriel Goldenberg explains how you can use email marketing to distribute your linkbait over at SEOmoz’ UGC section
- WebProNews covered the link building session at the ACCM conference
- Patrick Altoft tried to determine the value of an average link baiting campaign
- And no week goes by without at least some attention for the fakebait discussion, but when Matt Cutts adds his two cents, it may be worth reading
