Everyone seems to be in a frenzy to get links to their sites. Usually for the wrong reasons and from the wrong sites. Terms like Link Popularity, PageRank, Hubs, Authorities, Hilltop, Sandbox, Anchor Text, etc. are being bandied about and discussed ad nauseam. Marketers obsess over concepts like link leakage, bleeding PageRank, nofollow tags, triangular links, link architecture, link equity. There are many companies selling linking services that are absolutely 100% worthless.

Get past all the misinformation and disinformation and join two of the top-most experts on link building, as they share their favorite tips, lessons learned, tools, and success stories. This seminar will be rich with case study examples.

This seminar is for you if you:

1. Know that you're missing out on key linking opportunities, but you just don't know which ones and how to find them

2. Don't have all the answers on what it takes to get coverage and links in the right places from the right people

3. Don't have a current linking strategy or have one with holes

Successful link builders take an active role in the process. They don't just sit back and hope that links happen. They make them happen! Take the first step by registering for this virtual seminar today.
