Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
Have you ever created awesome content, slavishly built a list of amazing blogs and link prospects, and crafted dozens (or hundreds) of personalized outreach messages, then waited, and waited, and waited with little or no response?
What is it about SEO that makes people stop acting like people?
Links are always a popular topic, and this year has proven no exception including Penguin, links vs. social media, negative SEO and disavowing links .
Okay, I am tired of seeing “how to create a link (building/acquisition) strategy” articles that don’t include any strategy. Strategy has nothing to do with what link research tools you love; strategy has nothing to do with what valuation metrics you trust; strategy has nothing to do with which SEO bloggers you want to promote. A strategy is an action plan that is designed to achieve some goal.
Like it or not, link building has been and still is big, big business. Doing it well takes a lot of time and resources, which means that many webmasters/site owners can’t or don’t want to do it themselves. Many agencies that handle other aspects of search engine marketing want to outsource it simply because of the massive resource drain.

On the heels of Digg’s demise , Facebook is rolling out its Digg-killer feature: a recommendation bar that shows you articles from around the web based on what your friends are reading. “As a person reads an article, a small pop-up surfaces at the bottom of the screen, highlighting recommended articles and prompting them to like the page,” writes Facebook engineer Jeffrey Spehar on the company blog .
Links matter . There's no debate links are a big signal of quality to search engines, so you need to know your ABCs . Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to further enhance your link profile, links remain a critical method of marketing. However, if you've been paying attention, you can see that link building is a constantly evolving practice. Certain tactics are overused then abused then penalized, with link builders running around trying to undo damage from techniques that worked well but maybe weren't 100 percent safe ideas.
