    Nice compilation of resources. Now it's a matter of 'newbies' being able to understand what to do with it.

  2. Andrew // October 28, 2007 at 12:15 AM

  3. Incognito // November 10, 2007 at 2:02 PM

    Wow. What a complete rip off from the original article

    Didn't even bother to change anything

    @sylv3rblade:
    please see the end of the post, the owner of the content has been mentioned. Also the blog is about the best of the article about seo published by different authers so i am no one to change their stuff.

    He's right, this is a complete rip off, and it's my post that you're ripping off. You can't just mention in small print at the end that it is from another site. You have to at least link back to the original article. Please either link to my post or move this. Thanks.

  7. Huddy // November 24, 2007 at 4:26 PM  

    It may be a rip off from another user, but I would not have found the article otherwise. Atleast I know who originally wrote the article, and more importantly found the article.

    Great post, very complete and cover several areas. I prefer linkbait strategy.
    I suggest to include use trackbacks. But those points you need to a lot of time to do them.
    And if you really follow those steps and offer good content shure obtain huge traffic.
    I'll check some and put my hands to write...
    Thanks by the tips,
    Regards,
