Co-Citation is a popular similarity measure used to establish a subject similarity between two items. If A and B are both cited by C, they may be said to be related to one another, even though they don’t directly reference each other. If A and B are both cited by many other items, they have a stronger relationship. The more items they are cited by, the stronger their relationship is

Must-read article for anyone who has been investing any significant time or resources into link building efforts.


From the original article intro: "The Google Penguin updatehas changed the link building process forever. Gone are the days when it was easy to rank for desired keywords by building tons of links using exact keywords as the anchor text.


In the wake of Penguin, uncertain exactly where the thresholds and ratios are. Just how well distributed should our anchor text be in order to get the best results?


We have been busy with research on the subject and, not too long ago, discovered what Rand Fishkin at the SEOMoz blog had to say for their Whiteboard Friday series. Much of what we’ve observed has fallen in line with his predictions."



Must-read. Save yourself some serious time and risk. 7/10

Do links from Social Media sites really hold any SEO value? | memeburn

Do links from Social Media sites really hold any SEO value? | memeburn | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

many SEO’s know that a link from a social media site holds substantial value insofar as the ranking score is concerned.

 

A guest commented that this statement was not necessarily true. I am not sure if he or she meant that it was not true that SEOs actually know that, or that it was not true that links from social media sites hold any Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) value.

 

Either way, this comment led me to write this article where I will delve deeper into the details surrounding the perceived value of social media in SEO".

 

How to use social media to add value to your SEO campaigns: 

 

1) Create social networking profiles;


2) Incorporate keywords in your tweets and blog posts; 

 

3) Use social networks to drive traffic to your web content; 


4) Reach out to influential industry leaders on social networking platforms;


5) Encourage people to share your content.

Why There Is No Camaraderie Amongst SEOs | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

Several years back in the SEO community, SEOs for the most part, stood together. We had each others backs. When one SEO took a fall, we did what we could to help out. There are exceptions to that but that was the general feeling. We had a community and we protected each other. I feel that is not longer the case and hasn't been for some time.

Conclusion

The possibilities of link building are endless. You can build links in many different ways, you just have to be creative. What I’ve learned over the years is the best link builders are the creative ones.

Just look at Matt Inman, no one would have thought that he would rank a site for online dating, but he was able to do it in a matter of months because of how he built links.

All you have to do is think outside the box as the list above is just scrapping the surface. What other creative ways are you building links?

The Broken Link Building Bible

The Broken Link Building Bible | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it
Excerpted from article intro:
"Broken link building may perhaps be the most effective, white-hat link building strategy in years. In particular, broken link building is appealing because the success of the campaign is directly proportional to how much good you do for the web. You profit only if you create good content to replace lost or abandoned content that webmasters still want to link to. This is the type of strategy that marries so many of the competing interests our industry: content vs. links, link earning vs link building, inbound vs. outbound, etc.

Below, I attempt to organize as much as I know about broken link building tactics. Throughout the piece I mention tools that will help you make the broken link building process scalable and less monotonous.

5 Ways that Social Media Impacts SEO

5 Ways that Social Media Impacts SEO | Backlinks for your Blog | Scoop.it

"How does social media activity impact SEO? That's a common question these days as publishers try to make the most of search and social for audience development.

 

While the role of social media signals in Google and Bing’s ranking algorithms is still evolving there are already a number of ways that social media is having a clear influence.

 

Here are five ways that social media impacts SEO, or more specifically search engine visibility, rankings and traffic:

 

1. Annotations in the Search Results

Both Google and Bing use social data to annotate select listings on their search engine results pages.

 

2. Personalized Rankings

In addition to annotations the engines also personalize the order of their search results based on a number of factors including social connections and activity.

 

3. Secondary Links

When it comes to ranking factors links are still much more important than social shares. A link from a quality, trusted site has considerably greater weight than a like, tweet or +1.

 

4. Highlighting Authors

In some instances Google is now highlighting author information in its search results.

 

5. AuthorRank

Beyond author markup in the search results, both Google and Bing are beginning to utilize the concept of AuthorRank in which trusted, popular authors may be given a boost in search and social media visibility".
