Welcome to Linkarati's first ever link building roundup!
Here at Linkarati we're working to build a centralized community for link builders. To that affect we're gathering content from the far corners of the net to highlight the best link building articles, each and every week.
If you'd like your articles considered, please head over to our Google+ Link Builders Community and share your content!
1. Todd McDonald's post "Personas, Semantic Search, and Bit of Relevance"
Todd knocks it out of the park in this compelling (although deep) read. Todd examines the future of search, the importance of understanding user intent, solving your target demographic's problems, and what role links will play. This is a must read for any serious SEO.
2. Joel Klettke's "8 Lies About Content Marketing You Probably Believe"
Joel, never one to mince words, launches into an (dare I say it?) epic post about content marketing. There's not much to say about Joel except if you're not reading his work, you should be. He's a smart man that cuts right to the heart of the problem. For this article, pay special attention to #2, #3, and #8. Actually, just read the whole thing.
3. Rob Toledo's "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Nofollow"
Rob's article addresses an ongoing industry problem: Nofollow links and why they should matter. Too many link builders get sucked into the mindset of thinking the Nofollow attribute equates to literally no value. Nofollow links have their place in every natural backlink profile. Rob encourages readers to be creative and push the envelope with these links - after all, you can't break search engine guidelines.
4. Venchito Tampon's "Monster Guide to Link Building"
Venchito does a great job combing through web and organizing link building resources into a fantastic guide. If you're looking to learn more about link building, I highly recommend you take the time to check it out.
