Thejenn Ė ĎPress Releasesí, exactly right and thank you for sharing.
Thereís another good reason to have a great copywriter on hand. When folks are thinking about high link popularity from top PageRank sites then thinking about Press Releases is a great idea. Copy that sells will get a good link from just about anyone. A key to understand is the importance of great copy that sells. Add optimization to the Press Releases and bingo. The best sites archive them so nicely on site and Google doesnít seem to be bothered at all by the duplicate content. I think thereís a hint in there.
Interesting point. Yes, who brags about hours spent in research, following trails of information, compiling data. Maybe thatís why my kids have taken to calling me - be.dork.a ma.ma.
You know Air, youíre probably right and I suppose thatís ok because there are a bunch of skills and trades I hire to be taken care of that I wouldnít think of doing myself so if folks want to hire out their research and planning than who am I to disagree ;)
Thanks for your posts. Iím glad to see folks thinking about this. I was a landscape designer and contractor for several years and worked from a whole earth perspective. It cost more up front but a lot less in the long run to maintain and what kept it strong and healthy was a steady diet of organic material worked into and covering it. Iíve applied that theory to internet positioning. Figure it all out right up front and have a great plan, then feed it regularly with well processed material.
