Etiologic Content Linking Strategies by Eric Ward… That slug reminds me of another quote… “In order to appear agreeable to society, you sometimes must agree to be taught many things you already know,” or something to that effect.
I’m thinking Eric never read that quote, lol. Definitely an expert… but not a shy one, to be sure. Much to learn from him…
When I went to the tynt.com site, my computer’s little brain went on the spin cycle. Saw a pretty picture of Time and a copy/paste quote, but nothing else appeared on the site. Just spin city…
The hub.webring site is interesting, but looks spammy and risky. I browsed around a bit… and will definitely return. But all I saw was people posting links… but perhaps I didn’t stay or search enough to find actual content. Or is it all just links?
It’s so frustrating figuring out what to pursue in the case of linkbuilding. Personally, I’ve just thrown BigG out the window and get 88% of all my traffic elsewhere. In the scheme of things, it seems I was right to do that… as once I quite trying with Google, now it seems they pursue me without any work… and my rankings have begun to rise on their own. Probably just a “content is king” story… So now I’m following that rule on all new sites I build… amass mass content on a narrow subject, fuel the fire on YouTube with lots of videos, link on my websites to LOTS more videos, and ignore Google SERPs totally.
The vids rank quickly on YouTube, appear above BigG SERP results, then rise in the SERPS to page one without any seo at all. Interesting…
So I’m not sure if focused pursuit of “natural-looking” backlinks will have any effect over time anymore. That may just be a coincidence that will steer people away from doing what they should be doing… concentrate on massive amounts of quality content with brief one minute bookmarking and sharing strategies… then move on to the next thing quickly.
Works for me…Robin Carlisle @mitch-rezman
