Link Building this Week (30.2008)

25 Jul

Are you struggling with your link requests, PR campaign or linkbait launch? The communication part is very important, and that’s why reading a post like Dee Barizo’s email template for contacting bloggers and Bob Massa’s fontstravaganza list of link request tips are certainly worth reading. Make sure to read Eric Ward’s excellent post about the link building kiss of death as well.

Normally, I don’t watch a lot of videos online. Not even viral ones. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know why either. However, I do make an exception for link building related videos (and for videos that get forwarded several times, of course :) ), such as Rhea Drysdale’s realistic link building tips, Stephan Spencer’s explanation about what’s in a good link and Ray Comstock’s link building videos. Excellent stuff for a Friday morning ;)

    Link baiting is actually an art of writing and is highly dependent on the quality of the contents itself. Always think from a visitor’s perspective, you may find a piece of news very informative, or a piece of joke that is very funny, but what makes you put a link to it on your website / blog? More specifically, the link must NOT be a no-follow one. A perfect link bait can become a good landing page for your web site, eventually draw visitors to other pages as well, it may not be necessary to have every posts to be outstanding in your blog, just have one once in a while will be good enough.
