All month long, we’ve interviewed select Search Marketing Expo (SMX) West speakers. Each exclusive interview offers a sneak peak of what’s to come when these SEO powerhouses take the SMX stage next month. Today, we welcome president of Alliance-Link Debra Mastaler. She’ll be sharing her insights on link building with the SMX audience in “Link Building Fundamentals.”
“I came into the SEO industry in late 1999 by way of owning a directory called TheOrganicWayMarket.com. Within six months of launching it, I dominated almost every organic term being used in the directory. I was practicing SEO, but didn’t know it at the time,” Mastaler explained. “Once I figured it out, I closed the directory and concentrated on link building full time. It’s been fun and I’ve never looked back.”
