“A mere $8 a month? That, my friends, is hilariously little money.Good solid links, with great instructions on how to get them. I’ve subscribed to Eric’s LinkMoses Private for less than 2 months and already, I’ve gotten several links out of the link building tips. Now you see why I think all of you should go and subscribe”

Let’s get this out of the way:

I will never suggest an approach or linking opportunity that can 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 and my own sites since before there were search engines. Take a look at this search for link building expert Eric Ward, you’ll see thousands of results that provide a sense of how my approach is unique and successful. LinkMoses Private is not about tricking Google. LinkMoses Private is about linking techniques that help with both click traffic and organic rankings today and for the long term. The ultimate goal of LinkMoses Private is to help you improve and sculpt a more effective inbound link profile. This involves recognizing the wide variety of linking opportunities that are available to you, from social media to the deep web, if you know where to look and how to pursue them.

Real Linking Experts Are Few and Far Between
The true experts in the field of link building, link marketing 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.

The less you rely on Google for traffic, the better your chances for long term success. Ironically, if you stop worrying so much about Google and worry about creating the best site possible, your Google rank will likely improve as a side effect

Cost and Benefits
LinkMoses Private is $8/month. That may sound 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 Link Opportunity Alerts, ranging from archaeology to accounting to business to badminton to dancing to travel to health to livestock to yachts to yoga and even zebras. Yes, zebras.  This obviously means not every Link Opportunity Alert will be appropriate for every one of your sites. 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 Link Opportunity Alerts, and learn linking strategies across a variety of verticals.

LinkMoses Private subscribers comments…

We have gained immensely from our subscription to Eric’s LinkMoses Private, and for helping us refine our linking strategy with straightforward training and consulting.
-David Farkas, The Upper Ranks

By far this is one of the BEST link building newsletters I have ever seen.  Every issue contains tons of white hat link building resources, articles and actionable strategies.  I highly recommend the LinkMoses Private newsletter by Eric Ward to anyone that has any involvement in SEO or link building”
- Nick Stamoulis, brickmarketing.com

My clients have ranged 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 Ahead of the Curve
In addition to sending you Link 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.

Key Points: 

  • 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.
  • I identify highest caliber linking opportunities across a variety of verticals.
  • The Link Opportunity Alerts (LOAs) I send include advice on how to maximize your chances at successfully obtaining the links.
  • I explain and illustrate how to maximize the power of social links from Google Plus Your World, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others.
  • By design, not every Link Opportunity Alert will be appropriate for all of you. I can’t have 250 people converging on the same site all at once requesting a link. That defeats the purpose and potential of the service.
  • In addition to sending you Link Opportunity Alerts, I will send you links to news you need to be aware of.  This will include private commentary and strategic advice related to industry news, i.e., G+, Panda, etc., including direct comments from my private contacts at the search engines.
  • I include video tutorials when they are needed to help clarify a linking opportunity.
  • Lastly, and most importantly, the posts are not made public.  They are for you subscribers only. There will be no archive. You can archive them in your inbox. Please do not forward or share them as that defeats the exclusivity of this service, and can cause a flood of submissions to the sites I’ve identified for you. I’ve seen it happen. The privacy of this service is a key component of its value to you.

Details and How to Sign Up for LinkMoses Private

I’m using MailChimp to deliver LinkMoses Priavte via email. You can sign up via the box on the right side of this page. Enter your email address and click your preferred payment option.

After you’ve signed up for LinkMoses Private via PayPal above, and I’ll add your name manually to the member roster, and send you a welcome message.

Again, I’m keeping the price low because not every link opportunity will be applicable to every one of you, depending on the subject vertical you are in and your site’s content.  Even so, the strategies and learning that you’ll take from them will have value, as they will be based on my nearly two decades of experience building links and creating linking strategies. At $8 per month, there is no service on the web that is anything like LinkMoses Private.  I have thousands of contacts I’ve made over the years, and I only want a few hundred subscribers, at which point I’ll close the service to new members. I’m not seeking to reach millions of people, just those who understand what I do and can take action on the Link Opportunity Alerts.

For those of you interested in the “LinkMoses” nickname given to me a few years ago by an industry friend, here’s that backstory.  I turned that joke into thousands of links to my content.

Attention Current Members

Whitelisting LinkMoses Private…You may want to check your spam folders for the posts I’ve sent. I’ve learned that some of my posts ended up in spam folders or flagged as spam.  The primary reason for this is the combination of the number of clickable links I include in my posts, the fact that some of them are short-cut URLs, and because the posts are quite long. Apparently this combination triggers spam detection filters, and can cause you to never see the posts.  I’m anti-spam and LinkMoses Private is about link building techniques that are not spam.  Oh, the irony…

Here’s what you can do to fix this:

LinkMoses Private posts will be sent from (case sensitive)

linkmoses@ericward.com

Please create a filter or whitelist that will allow email from the above address.

For Gmail users here are the steps:

Mail Settings > Filters > Create New Filter > From: linkmoses@ericward.com > Next Step > check “Never send it to Spam” and save.
