The paid link debate is still raging on. Where Matt Cutts apparently “crushed” one of the link related sessions, SEOmoz tries to come up with a solution for buying links while staying within Google’s guidelines. I don’t think that this idea will work, but it’s an interesting thought. Another interesting thought about paid links was brought to you by Aaron Wall; make sure to read his post about An Unjust Fear of Link Buying.
Search Engine Roundtable covered every link building related session from both SES Chicago and Pubcon; Are Paid Links Evil (SES Chicago), Link Building Campaigns & Strategies (Pubcon), Link Baiting: 96 Strategies (Pubcon), Link Buying (Pubcon) and the Keynote with Matt Cutts (Pubcon). More coverage: BruceClay.com covered the Link Baiting session, the Page Traffic Blog covered both the Link Building campaigns and the Paid Links session and SEOmoz reported about their Pubcon experiences. Sugarrae already published her presentations.
- Scott Boyd counters last week’s articles about outsourcing link building with his post about Why In-House Link Building isn’t always the most practical solution
- XMCP (?) wrote about Why you should promote whoever links tot you
- Eric Enge’s column at SearchEngineWatch was about Strategic Link Building
It’s been light blogging during the past few weeks, but there’s a reason. Later more :)
