    Good article on structuring quality links. I just wrote an article that takes your strategy and gives tactics to identify market/niche directories.

    Nice work Debra. I’ve been providing complete Link Building Blueprints for clients for 10/12 years now, and I agree with you. In fact, Google Link Building Blueprint, and bingo, there it is. Sorry, I gotta brag while I can. But I also think it’s crucial to augment the blueprint with an explanation and execution examples so the client really starts to learn the rationale and impact of a properly executed blueprint. The blueprint is one thing, the implementation is another, and it’s vital to make sure you are putting the right people in place that can properly execute any given piece of the blueprint. Low hanging directories links can be pursued by a different person with different expertise and skill sets than can blogger outreach that requires a more sophisticated understanding of the nuance at play. I get pitched weekly from people seeking links on my site and they use such a bad approach that the blueprint can be ruined due to poor implementation. I ended up having to offer a tandem coaching approach to walk people through the process of executing the blueprint, and that really made a big difference. Especially as they see the links come in.
