What is LinkMoses Private?
LinkMoses Private is a monthly linking strategy report, written by linking strategist Eric Ward and sent via email.
Each issue of LinkMoses Private features linking strategies and tactics, linking case studies, curated linking industry news, and vetted Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunities (PLAs). LinkMoses Private has subscribers all over the world.
I also host live private video Q/A’s via YouTube Live like this one below.
LinkMoses Private is not just about Google
Many sites have learned the hard way they can no longer rely on Google organic traffic alone. Google continues to evolve, and Google’s organic results have undergone dramatic changes. LinkMoses Private is about linking and promotion techniques that broaden and diversify your traffic sources. Yes, Google is important, but you also need to protect yourself. LinkMoses Private will help you do that.

More About LinkMoses Private
First and foremost, I will never suggest a linking strategy or approach that will cause harm to your site or cause you to violate a search engine’s quality guidelines. I’ve provided reliable and effective linking advice since November of 1994. Here are a few hundred examples.
I’ve been creating linking strategies for clients since before there were search engines. Run a Google search on this phrase:
linking strategies eric ward -site:ericward.com
You’ll see results that provide a sense of how my approach is unique and successful. The ultimate goal of LinkMoses Private is to help you develop the most effective inbound links possible. This involves recognizing the wide variety of linking opportunities available to you, and accepting that you cannot rely on traffic from Google alone and expect to succeed. You need to be developing traffic and awareness from sources that are not at the mercy of the next algorithm change, and LinkMoses Private is designed to show you how.
The less you rely on Google for traffic, the better your chances are for long term success, and ironically, when you stop chasing links for Google and instead take the time to follow a true biz/dev driven linking ethos, your Google rank will usually improve anyway, as a side effect.
Real Linking Experts Are Few and Far Between
Experts in the field of link building and linking strategies are few and far between. I’ve been helping sites reach their true linking potential since 1994, and have devoted thousands of hours over the years learning as much as possible about how content on the web gets discovered. There’s far more to links than most people realize, and while Google is an important part of any linking strategy, you can devote too much time to Google and lose perspective. Links are not just about search engine rankings.
Cost and Benefits
At $8 per month, there is no other newsletter like LinkMoses Private. $8 dollars may seem low, but remember not every Link Opportunity Alert will be appropriate for every one of your sites. Subscribers have already requested several hundred topics for Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunites, ranging from archaeology to accounting to business to badminton to dancing to travel to health to livestock to yachts to yoga and even bats. Yes, bats.
This means not every Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity alert will be appropriate for everyone. This is why I also send you advice and strategies, case studies, how to videos, linking news and tips, a curated reading list, and keep the price at $8. By doing so you will receive value far beyond the Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity alerts, and learn linking strategies across a variety of verticals.
You Benefit from my Experience
I’ve created and executed linking strategies for clients ranging from Goliath’s like Disney and Amazon to mom and pops, and I’ve purposely stayed a one person operation. I’ve done the link building, strategy development, analytics, and outreach myself for my clients since 1994. I don’t outsource. LinkMoses Private is my way of sharing the best of what I’ve learned, and continue to learn. LinkMoses Private will help you create a sustainable merit-based link profile.
Keeping You Current and Ahead
In addition to sending you opportunity alerts, I will serve as a curator and filter for linking related industry news, sending you links to posts you need to be aware of. I’ve read tens of thousands of SEO and link building articles and posts, and I still read and scan hundreds of posts every week. By curating the best of them for LinkMoses Private members, my goal is to direct you to things that may impact your site or your client’s sites, saving you time.
- The newsletters are not made public. The newsletter is for subscribers only. Please do not forward or share them as that defeats the exclusivity of this service
- I will never suggest an approach or opportunity that can cause harm to your site or cause you to violate a search engine’s quality guidelines
- I don’t send pointless link farms and generic directories or any other link opportunity that’s of no ranking or traffic value
- Identify highest caliber linking opportunities across a variety of verticals
- The Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity alerts (PLAs) I send include advice on how to maximize your chances for success
- I explain and illustrate how to maximize the power of social links from Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others
- By design, not every Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity alert will be appropriate for all of you. We don’t want every subscriber converging on the same site all at once requesting a link
- In addition to sending you Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity alerts, I’ll send you links to news you need to be aware of. This will include private commentary and strategic linking advice related to industry news, including direct comments from my private contacts at the search engines
- I include video tutorials when they are needed to help clarify a Publicity/Link/Awareness opportunity
