Building quality links has always been hard work. There are systemic reasons why this has always been true. The system is rigged against marketers.
Ultimately, link building is about attention. Attention earned. Attention given. And it”s HARD to get attention these days. What with the proliferation of content on the web; the growth of opportunity; the high quality, data driven analysis that can be easily found and shared online is staggering! Ultimately, if the web is important to you and you wish to drive high quality organic search traffic to your site or blog, you need to consistently spoon feed amazingly awesome content to your readers and customers. The better it is, the more it will be shared and the more links you will acquire NATURALLY – without gaming – without “submissions” – without trading or link schemes. And that’s what it’s all about, Always has been.
