Hello and welcome to the Linkarati Roundup, where we feature the best SEO and link bilding content of the week. 

Linkarati-Roundup-263x300

This week we have four different link building posts, a wonderful analysis of user experience as a ranking signal, a roundup about becoming an SEO, and a potential new algorithm from Google.

Let's jump into it.

1. David McSweeney's "Viral Link Building: How I Got 100k Visits & Links From The Press (With A Can of Irn-Bru)."

The title says it all. David explains how he created a fairly simplistic and humorous infographic, piggybacked onto the success of a similar infographic, and earns huge attention (and links). This is a must read for anyone involved in link building or content marketing.

2. Bill Sebald's "A Link Building Tacitc (On The Back of Brand Equity)."

Bill shares a real-life example of a big brand leveraging their well-known name to develop links and audience engagement. Bill provides honest assessement of where they're missing the mark and shares his own thoughts. Good read for anyone working with big brands.

3. Dan Petrovic's "User Behaviour Data As a Ranking Signal."

This is without a doubt the best post to date on user behavior as a ranking signal. If you're interested in how Google tracks user behavior, the potential of user behavior as a ranking signal, or user exerpience in general, you need to read this. In depth, well explained, comprehensive.

4. David Farkas' "You're Not Ready for Link Building Without Linkable Assets."

Want links? You need something worth linking to. That's the long and short of it, and David does a fantastic job explaining what linkable assets are, why they matter, and examples across multiple industries. Good coverage of an important topic.

5. Nathan Baker's "How to Become an SEO: 40+ Experts Reveal Their Best Advice."

Not your typical roundup, Nathan makes great use of graphics to create a fun, readable roundup. Good read for those interested in becoming an SEO, or looking to engage SEO services.

6. Aidan Russell's "Google Is Working On A New Type of Algorithm Called "Thought Vectors"."

Can you break language into a mathmatic formula? Google thinks so - and that's the premise of an algorithm in the works, called "thought vectors." Potentially improving Google's ability to understand language, this algorithm could be immensely important in the years to come. Time will tell. 

7. Andrew Dennis' "How To Promote For Links, Not Penalties."

Andrew covers a variety of different methods that will help you promote and market your site while securing worthwhile links. Just as importantly, Andrew covers why these tactics help secure the type of links you want, and how to employ them effectively.
