Well at least a lot of the linkbuilding I see going on isn’t.  But it can be.

Which is why I wrote 5 Local Linkbuilding Ideas for the Post-Penguin/Panda Era

And I wanted an excuse to put up ridiculous dog pics on SearchEngineLand.

    Great post Andrew! I read your article on search engine land and you provided some good ideas. It’s sad how much time and money goes into spammy link building when it can be so easy to get a few quality links through spending the time to create content for a great linkbuilding strategy. I would love to hear some more on this topic – especially on how a content strategy can help drive quality backlinks. Do you mind writing a guest post on my blog on that particular topic?

      Thanks Alok. I am a bit nuts at the moment but ping me in a few weeks and maybe we can cook something up.

    Pick your struggles wisely. A very competitive keyword needs good link building and may consume years to see good ROI. Deep analysis on getting your onsite SEO as good as possible. This is about 32% of ranking and you will not be penalized for it so long as you don’t over do it and follows Search engine guidelines.
