Here is my question. My site is about six months old. It seems a lot older, it is kind of like my kids, I can not imagine life with out it.
When I started off we had no money so they cheapest and fastest way to get customers seemed to be with links.
Because of the links the search engines started picking up the website and when I saw hits from the search engines I started working with them and stopped working on links. I then started getting listed high in the search engines and again everyone started talking about pr so I went and hired someone to do nothing but links all day. Because I wanted to work on my pr.
Now we are listed in the top of the search engines for over 100 different key words and some of them pretty good ones for the home page alone.
But I have found that I get more hits from the links then the search engines. I know links and content are the two most important part of a website.
But I now think links may play a bigger part in the success of a website more then even the search engines.
What do you think and has anyone else seen similar stats?
