I just launched 4000-5000 pages
I realize this thread is about link dev, but do you care to offer some info about how you manage to create so many pages of "great content" as a one-man show?
The webmaster emailed me back. No link mentioned, but he thanked me for my content.
But on page two, I found a university that actually has formed a division on the history of my niche. I've scoured that section of the website, there's no external links that I can see. However they have had symposiums on the subject and published the list of speakers, all professors from around the world. So I'm going to do two things. First, I'm going to email the webmaster - he probably won't link to me, but heck, maybe he forwards the email on to profs at the university as a source of material.
Although I don't think that there are many .edu's and/or .gov's in the niches I work in, so I must deal mostly with more commercial-oriented sites to get my "authority links" which can be alot more touchy as they happen to be more seo-saavy and harder to get links from in my opinion
Also - on one of Google's birthday's they put up a site where you could do searches from a 10 year old data set. I'd like to hammer on that a bit - is that site still up - does anyone have a link?
There is some great strategic thinking around link building here, however, it really suits someone who is working on their own site and can put that type of time / effort in.
