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 :)
