Danny notes it’s time to think differently about links rather than to think about Digging stuff.
First up, Roger Montii, @martinibuster. Notes he does “White Label Link Development.” He’s talking strategies. They use 8 or 9 link campaigns, some of which are:
1. Target Searching
Target sites that link to relevant resources:
allintitle: “relevant keyword” resources site:.org
- Good way to find sites that are resources to businesses.
- Likes to limit it to dot org or limit to dot edu.
- If search returns more than a 1,000 responses. Yahoo! will only show 1,000, and you’ll be missing things. Add more keywords to work that result down to better find hidden opportunities.
