Link Building Myths

  • Renee Reply

    Eric Ward published this piece on Search Engine Land the day after Christmas. He talks about infographics, guest blogging, putting "submit" in the submission page URL, and pages with Links.html & Links.php.

    Again, we see that intent and content are underscored.

    "As long as there have been SEOs or link builders making claims that come across as absolutes, I have argued vehemently that absolutes are a trap. You give me the topic and tactic, and I can find useful, or useless approaches. Call it link tactic profiling. Sadly, once a tactic gets labeled as worthless, it’s hard to fight that label."

    I love how INTENT is somehow relevant.... How exactly is that measured? ;-)

    Only the great Great Pumpkin can properly evaluate sincerity and that only relates to pumpkin patches. At least according to the Charlie Brown Halloween special

    Love this article! Thanks for sharing. That /links mythbuster feat. a Harvard example was especially cool.

    I agree as well. This was a great article. I made sure to share it. Absolutes are a trap. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. People can make promises to help, but anyone that promises instant rankings is probably selling snake oil.

    Great article. I agree Jenna, the Harvard example was nice. The comments were pretty solid as well.
