Google Making a try best to best result
William Hanna's curator insight, July 2, 2013 9:54 AM

Google certainly likes to keep everyone on their toes!  Regardless of the SEO side of things, it is still worth your while to link to affiliates and businesses that can add value to your business.  At least this idea of building links just for the sake of building links can be put to rest.  Amen Google!
