What's Your Favorite Source for Links?
Links have always been the ticket to the SERPs. Early on, reciprocal links were traded and that worked like a charm until Google got smart about that. A healthy dose of one way links became requisite.
Obviously link bait is the best way to get one way links but how many times have you come up with a truly link worthy idea? How many "viral" ideas? Certainly I have written a post or two that got some friendly nods and links, but not enough to float my boat.
Quite a few folks resorted to link buying despite warnings of the risks ... and it would seem the Penguin has pooped on a lot of those sites. But links are still what we all need.
One of the best ways to create quality incoming links is off site content development -- the creation and placement of guest posts and articles on quality sites such as Squidoo, and Hubpages, Ezinearticles. I like morestar's article directory, too. And I am always in search of the opportunity for a guest post on a quality blog.
Where are you developing links and content these days?
