    Wonderful Dave!!! Really liked your guide, I would suggest you to turn it to a PDF/ebook and there are many newbies that can take advantage of the guide! ne small advise if you dont take it otherwise, please add something on citations also as whole lot of SEO guys consider it as an important aspect of SEO today!

    Thanks for the guide. This could actually be a good start for a lot of businesses going online these days - knowing where and what to start and how to build their business profiles.
    I'm glad you share some in this forum.

    Hope you could share more - especially in business related areas and how to be successful with it, at least just some insights.

    Nice link list, these are one of the best ways to generate links however I can see Social Media playing a big part in link building in 2012 with the launch of Google +

    For effective link building main factors which we follow are unique content and profile linking in order to increase the page rank and get more traffic.

    You just helped a new link builder save so much time googling the 101. Every important thing is there. Hope you add more niche sites. :)

    What is your view on social photo sharing... does it help?

    Blog commenting and social bookmarking are not very effective. We replaced the blog commenting with forums and social bookmarks with ping.

    I find ping really helpful. When I started to expand my twitter followers I learned about truetwit. I noticed that it measures tweets from bots so that's when I stopped linking twitter to ping. your thoughts pls... :) thanks!
