    Hi Eric

    Some of my sites are to “left” as you would say and would probably benefit from inclusion in directories. But which ones are worth it?

    Getting in dmoz is so hit and miss of course. Yahoo is no doubt sound (though expensive) but what others are worth it …botw, joeant ?

    Could you suggest others?

    Great new concept. I enjoy your work. My questions are:

    Do Digg and Stumbles help? Is good ole fashioned link trade emails back in vogue?

    Thanks for your time.

    Do you ever recommend the use of NOFOLLOW on links within your own site, to de-emphasize certain pages. I read about this on SEOMoz, and it seems counter-intuitive to me.

    Hi I was doing link building distributing clients articles, we prepare on purpose, with no more 5 links in the document including resource box, but actually before 3 months I see google take them to the top but before a week google return them to the same position when we started, is a credible tactic distributing articles or I must have to return to directory and link interchange links tactics thanks

    Hey Eric,

    Awesome stuff. I can’t seem to stop reading up on your opinions and practices for link building.

    What is your general time line for a follow up to secure a link an another site? What about if the site had the link, but went to a broken landing page, when should you follow up after initial contact to get that fixed?

    Simple question – as somebody who has an e-commerce site wanted higher rankings, what should I hire somebody to do on a daily basis to get more links?

    I’ve taken a new site from 1 backlinks to 350 in five months of hard work. I’ve done the basics: submitted to niche and free mainstream directories, posted in forums, exchanged some links, and requested some links. What can I do next?
