Link Week: New Column From Search Engine Land

I’d like to welcome Eric Ward who kicks off Link Week today, a regular weekly column from Search Engine Land. Eric’s has been both building links as a professional over the past 14 years and educating people about the space over that time. We’re thrilled to have him writing for us.

Link Week is the first of several other columns that will be launching on Search Engine Land over the coming weeks. I’ll provide an introduction for each one of them, as they launch.
