Link Building- Use Variety

Here is another Link Building video I made. I originally was going to use this for a guest post on Link Building Bible, but I just read that LBB was sold…only a five month old blog and it has been sold…hmm.

This link building post suggests that when doing your link building you use variety. Sure you want to use your target keywords, but try not to over do it. Over using the keywords could potentially hurt your rankings.

Last year Lizzie and I attended the BlogPhiladelphia Unconference and we had an amazing time. September 6th and 7th, we will be attending the second Unconference which is a combination of Searchcamp Philly and PodcampPhilly.

SearchCamp is a group of sessions that is totally designed for people who are into Search Marketing…so I am sure I will be checking out more than a few of those sessions.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

I will be off line until Friday night, due to going on a Men’s retreat.

    Are You Open for Opportunity?

    I have been getting the daily updates in my email for quite sometime now. The daily videos of Roxanne and her dog Lexi, come from the beaches of Hawaii. Roxanne has a different topic everyday which may include personal development subjects to less serious topics. She also gives you a little Hawaiian Language lesson  with a Hawaiian word of the day. Today’s word of the day was Manawa kpono or opportunity.

    Today, Roxanne talks about taking a life challenge as her partner Shane said when they were faced with a client rescheduling issue, “What’s the Opportunity Here ?”

    I like the idea of finding gold in situations that if  we allow ourselves to, could potentially make us a little sad,very depressed or worse.

    For example, when the SEO Company Lizzie and I were working for, had to let us both go due to loss of clients, we could have, gotten really depressed(we did get a little bummed) because we then had to find new (sorry for the curse word in advance) jobs. But instead, we looked at it as the opportunity to fully go out on our own. Within a month, we were able to network our resources and were able to more than make up for the lost income and benefit security. Today, our own SEO Company,, is a growing, thriving business.

    How about you,

    when did you have to find the gold nugget in a potentially bad situation?
