"But to get those links, it's now all about relationship building. "
One of the more intelligent lines I have heard in the link building sector in a while.
Viral link building is still very important, and as Pageoneresults mentioned in another thread, the results are amplified by utilizing Twitter (if you have built up a loyal and strong following)
Many of the bigger, quality links I secure are by phone to this day. In fact, recently I found a .org in my sector where I found out when contacting the website, that not only would they give me a link, they are considering shutting down the site and are searching for someone to take over.
Those opportunities I rarely ever got by email.
