    I can’t wait to try some of these tips this week. What a resource! It’s like having a coffee with 21 experts. One thing I would love to get feedback on — how do you get your clients to understand that even though we know how to get the links, they know their fields the best, and can therefore really help to create the best content and may already have connections within the desired network. Or in your opinion does it devalue you as a link builder if you ask a client to expand on a connection they’ve already made?

    hi folks! Glad you enjoyed the piece!

    @Susannah – I definitely recommend having a check list/fact finding conversation before starting a link building campaign. We discuss \linkable assets\ which include everything from existing content to individuals who could potentially give interviews with bloggers (thought leaders). These assets, along with the keywords they’re targeting, in turn inform the queries we use to identify link prospects.

    Here’s Wiep’s suggestion, related to your question, from above: \…one thing that always works very well for me is asking the client what the most important industry related websites and blogs are, and which ones his or her favorite are. Then I do some searching in the LinkedIn connections and Twitter followers of the client and some of his colleagues, and look for connections with these websites. If I find a match, explain to my client how he can use that connection and turn it into a link.\

    I used various search commands, for seo I’d do something like “link building” “post a comment” allinurl:news google seo. I’ve also started using Twitter search and Topsy.com – which are really good for finding relevant sites.
