Links are RELATIONSHIPS – The Power of the Link
December 8, 2010 §
How a request for a link removal opened me up to the power of this medium I am using.
Here’s how it all started: Remove my link…
Now what I am learning…
The MUSTS to take away from The Power of the Link :
- are my referrals to my readers
- are saying I like this a lot, you may too!
- are encouraging people leave my site to read something else
Incoming Links – who is referring me
- provide content good enough that readers will want to refer you!
- are VERY IMPORTANT
- me sharing more of my content – connecting the dots for readers – provide background for complete information.
- allow search engines to crawl deeper into my site
Blog Rolls & Link Lists
- are permanent referrals by me – must be trustworthy!
- connect my posts to my readers and their audiences – a show of trust!
