  1. Thank you for the some insight. I too afraid to do that link building with others. This will give me some knowledge and will study more to keep me update !

    • Hi Sri,

      .. an honor to have you visiting my humble lil’ blog, Sir!

      Glad you liked the article, and yeah, link building should be done thoroughly and with patience! But as explained by Tyler (see previous comment), if done correctly you can see the some benefits quickly!

      Link building strategies can go totally wrong as well, like when you’ll buy for links and stuff .. I’ve got a simple rule of thumb for this: if not completely sure, don’t link (back)! Good luck and thanks for your visit, Cheers & Ciao!

  2. Link building is one of my least favorite activities. But I think most people feel this way, so when you actually sack up and do it, you get ahead of the competition pretty fast. Especially, in small niche or for non-ecommerce terms. There might be 100 similar posts on a topic for example but few people actually spend the time to build 1 let alone 100 links, which will almost always see you climb the serps in good time.

    • Hi Tyler,

      .. first of all, sorry for my late reply but I’m in a huge hackathon to finally redesign my (very old) current corporate web. But yeah, totally agree that this is NOT the coolest activity for creatives, and I’m being diplomatic here ;-P

      But a good (and legal) link building strategy can get your site higher in the SERP’s, and as we all know that means better exposure .. so very worth every second of it! Thanks for your comment, Cheers & Ciao!
