Live @ SMX London: Is Link Building Still Crucial, Or A Waste Of Time & Money?
Google’s singular innovation, the one that catapulted it to its dominating position as the world’s favorite search engine, was PageRank – looking at the links on the Web and using them as “votes” to determine high-quality or popular content.
Today, of course, Google goes far beyond assessing links, using hundreds of “signals” to determine relevance and rankings. Depending on the type of search, these factors can be more or less important in determining results than the nature and quality of the links pointing to a particular bit of Web content. So, the relevant question for all SEOs today should be, “just how important is a link building strategy to the success of my search marketing campaigns?”
