47 New Link Building Resources: the Link Builder's Identity Crisis Edition 9/3 - 9/9

Helloooooo link builders! Or should I say social media marketers? No, wait, you're PR experts now? Or... no, you're still SEOs? Eep! Welcome to this week's link building roundup - the link builder's identity crisis edition! Our top picks this week shine some light onto the emerging role of the link strategist! A big obrigado to Mr. "Consultoria SEO Fabio" as well as Don "Supernaut" Rhoades and Napoleon "SEO Company" Suarez for their instrumental link building soundtrack submissions!

There's been a lot written about Instant in the past 24 or so hours... My biggest insight came from Matt Cutts' anecdote on how Instant changed his searching patterns (personally, I found it distracting for the same reason). I also read a tweet that sums up a good link builder's approach to Instant :)

Here's last week's link building roundup.

  1. Very Helpful

    As always, this is very helpful. I read over the "New Referrals (Links) as Google Analytics Goals" post and it makes a ton of sense. I have asked our developer to go over that one with me as I am not as my coding knowledge is limited. Have you seen value in using that technique?

  1. Thank You!
