Wow. I could. But note, I'm a one person operation when it comes to link building, and I don't do SEO for anyone else - just my site. So hunt and peck it is for me.
I do follow trails of backlinks, and will eventually get to that as well.
One thing that has changed, is that many of the top ranking sites in my niche are not those I would consider authoritative. That didn't use to be the case. But today when I'm up against paid blogs, theme sponsorship, etc. I've no intention of comingling my link profile with them. In years past I'd be trying to make my profile look like the top ranking sites,but no more.
