    A very creative way of explaining the link game.

    Very nicely done Wiep (and martijn?). Lots of detail in the graphic itself and it makes a great linkbait itself! Keep em coming ;)

    Great concept. This makes link building easier to understand for everyone, especially those who are just starting up.
