Hi there, i want to give out a method, which is pretty effective. Sure - it is every link which counts - but: niche-relevant links are counting so much more! Here is how you get them with your blog, quick and white hat. Look at this post by me: http://etactic.de/webmarketing-mashup-seo-usability-marketing Perhaps you see the technique already, for those who not here is it explained: Use a blogsearch and collect niche-relevant blogs. No put them in a order to three meta-topics (i used IM, SEO & Usability). Now, you link to the actual post of every blog (important! Deeplink to the actual post, not to the root of the domain). Do this for every of your harvested blogs. What happens now? If you publish this post, you'll send a trackback to each of the linked blogs, which are published immediatly at most (and if not they will do it, if it looks organic). How do we get it organic? Look at my posting: I marked it as News-Mashup, i've got even a comment, from guy who thanks for that overview, 98% of my trackbacks have been released - Why? Cause it looks natural and not like spam, so this is the most important thing to mention while doing this little trick. Dont put just the link in! Thats loveless, and seems spammy, link it with an interessting title. I just trackbacked 30 Blogs or so, but you can do more of course!
