The 10 commandments of Linkbuilding (infographic)

23 May 2011 BY

Linkbuilding, it keeps on being one of the major parts of the SEO business. Getting links in is regarded as the best way of doing optimisation according to many. And there are many ways of building these links. I’ve discussed before what linkbuilders should and should not do when addressing bloggers for example.

You can make many rules on how to do linkbuilding. And so has done this blog, which has made the “10 commandments of Linkbuilding“. Now, whether they are correct you might be able to disagree on. But it is a nice attempt to make things visible.

    This is really nicely done – favouring quality over quantify is my watchword …. I’d have put that right at the top!

    This is great, really useful for new starters to remind them or teach them the basics of what to look out for when link building.

      Agreed. Excellent information for newbies. I have learn’t one thing though from this infographic. Whilst they look good online, the long ones are hard to share in print form. Definately something I’ll be keeping in mind for future graphic creation.

    Nice list. I love the format and creativity. And yeah, linking out to a number of bad sites can start hurting your own site. I know first hand.
