    “Pin The Original Version (And URL) Of The Creator’s Content, Not A Re-Pinned Version” <– My fave tip. No one does this! Attribution matters.

    There are so many industries and products that aren’t ever going to get traction on social, go viral, etc.

    ” I have composed and sent thousands and thousands of emails where my objective was to introduce content to a person in hopes of earning a link”
    How many of these eventually resulted in a link being placed on the site you contacted?

    There have been a rare few times where I have supplied not the anchor text but the whole link entry in the same form as on their page. If they use ‘example.com/page short sentence’ then I give it to them. It at least allows me to have some keywords of my choice in close proximity to the URL. Many of these few webmasters will use it ‘as is’ being as it’s a time saver for them :-)

    Great tips of link building etiquette! The nine tips are very useful for some of our SEO specialist in our team. Thanks for sharing this information.

    That’s true. Often we see (and send) such emails, but they hardly get a response. My colleague who used to do link building used to contact at least 100 websites daily, and at an average got 2 responses and 1 conversion out of the two at most. Good to see some good tips here though for the future.

    There are some brands out there that people aren’t going to social endorse just because of the stigma attached to it. But that doesn’t mean that audiences won’t read their content when they need it! I may not want to broadcast that my son got lice from his daycare (if and when that day comes) but you can bet I want to know how to get rid of it.
