“Link building” as it is traditionally defined is fraught with risks, gray-hat techniques, and dangerous mistakes. Don’t approach link building in a let’s-build-some-links kind of way.
If you do, you’re headed for dangerous waters. Instead, consider link building as a byproduct of being a networker, a content marketer, a local expert, a personal brand, and a social animal.
When one of our friends shared his use of the disavow tool daily at a recent conference to our shocked and surprise. He went on to explain by alerting Google to spammy links coming into his content he was winning more and more SEO cred and suddenly we got it.
Acting proactively on the knowledge not all inbound links are equal or good can save some SEO PAIN.
Not all links are equal and some may be attempts to HURT your website. Knowing who is linking to you, thanking the good ones and alerting Google to your disdain for the bad ones is becoming an important "new SEO" tactic.
This post shares solid new ways to get good links in the first place and original great content is you best friend on that mission. What it doesn't share is the cost of bad unsolicited links. Treat all links with care and give them with even more care.
We suggest NOT letting the spider follow your links. No Follow links protect you from having the content changed or altered after you link. Even with No Follow Links ONLY link to trusted sources so you may become an authority too.
