    Without going into too much detail, I recently contacted the BBC about one of their articles. I've just had a phone call from a lady there who says they would like to get a reporter to contact me to discuss my issue, to do an article on their website. When I mentioned my company name, she did say that I may get a link!

    Considering the high PR of the BBC site, and the sheer volume of readers I am VERY excited.

    Had to share my good news with someone!

    It's good to hear about some truly white hat backlink building. Sometimes, making the effort to contact someone can get a link that's pure gold.

    It used to be possible to spam the bbc blog, but recently it's become almost impossible as they see to have tripled their moderation efforts.

    I once got a backlink from Fox News and traffic skyrocketed. However; the traffic surge did not last more than a couple of days so have a plan in place to capitalize quickly.

    "You might get a link"... I felt for that twice when I send some pictures to some newspapers and they said that will provide the source....
