47 Resources To Carry Your Link Building Through 2013

9 Apr

As online marketers gear up for 2013, it’s clear that the methods we use to acquire backlinks to our and our clients websites have changed. It is also clear that Google will continue to roll countless updates that will have some impact (big and small) on sites that aren’t careful with their link building tactics.

Because of this, I decided to put together a compilation of all the amazing link building posts I have read this year (whether they were published this year or not) as a guide to future proof your link strategy and execution. It’s important to remember that although these strategies work amazingly well, you shouldn’t count on just one of them to help you secure search engine visibility, rather work to build a well-rounded portfolio of backlinks which will limit your risk if the almighty Google one day decides to discount the strategy.

To get started, I’ve grouped each resource into one of eight buckets: Guest Blogging, Social Media, Blogging / Link Bait, Broken Link Building, Online PR, Competitive Link Building, Giveaways, and Localized Link Building. So without further ado, the 47 resources to carry your link building through 2013!
