It turns out that you and I have come a long way in this "little" link building industry of ours...

So it's 2:39 am on a Monday morning and I'm here writing this blog post. Why? Because I love you. Yes. You.

We were a little bit surprised last week at the amount of attention the new link building toolset had. When we set out 2.5 years ago to build a fantastically useful, customizable and highly efficient link building tool - with a few core values around relevance and high-quality prospect analysis - we thought we might be onto something...but last week's reception was truly astounding. We had the largest traffic day ever on the site, and Garrett was out of town, not around to promote it.

In fact, we believe that the current toolset can more than double your link building productivity - gaining you twice as many links as you're currently acquiring, without investing a single minute more of your time - by integrating metrics and analysis never seen before in link building tools.

Hey folks! Ben Wills, here.

It turns out that I'll be putting together some pretty useful link building videos every week over the next few months (at least!) that uncover some of the link building secrets and lessons we've learned over the past several years. And, well, this week's video is here to introduce the series that we're calling the Ontolo Link Building Strategies Video Series.

(If you haven't figured it out yet, Garrett and I much prefer descriptive naming of things and *might* be a bit long-winded at times. Maybe...)
