    Thanks Eric, another really informative common sense article. I completely agree with the links.html topic. A link from any trustworthy page is worth value, especially if it’s highly relevant, even better if outbound links are few are far between. Absolute nonsense whether its called links.html

    Thank you for some great articles this year. Here’s to 2013 – Happy New Year

    I liked your humor, nice writing, good info. Well written is appreciated! I think that’s the real secret to backlinks, so you’re walking the walk, not just talking the talk, imo.

    I totally agree with the #1 and #2. I tried attracting links using them but my efforts weren’t very fruitful. I outsourced the artwork design but it’s not that simple to make ideas look simple.

    Loved 5th point..Thank’s for putting this before new year eric :D

    Btwn there are many misconception SEO’s have.. mainly because THIS may work for them but THAT doesn’t .. and when THAT doesn’t works for them they start telling other ppl (who are mostly following them) that THIS particular thing/tactic is dead bla bla .. Later on his/her followers starts preaching same stuff too without testing it out for themselves.. #SadButTrue

    Every link-building tactic is dead. Long live every link-building tactic :)

    Seriously, people want one answer that will magically work with no effort, and, when it doesn’t, they declare that tactic a waste of time. If you try a dozen tactics and fail at all of them, maybe it’s not the tactic. Maybe it’s you.

    I’ve experienced the same–seems like even the best contracted designer can have trouble if the data they’re working w/ is unclear to them.

    I agree completely with Eric, great content above all else will really help build trust, reputation and then links – the organic back-in-the-day way!

    Dr. Pete do you think writing high quality content and publishing on high quality article directories with your authorship in place is still a link building good practice?

    To summarize your post “don’t build links for the sake of a link instead build relations”.

    Excellent post and points made :)

    Link building is like alcohol, drink with moderation… ;)

    Article marketing as a link building strategy is also a good and interesting topic.

    Excellent tips, Eric. It’s all in how you play the game, isn’t it? Thanks for pointing out your Pinterest site, too. It is a prime example of how Pinterest can be used as a tool for the savvy specialist.
