Link Building Lessons from Old Fashioned Citation System?

Just a hypothesis...

I was wondering if there is anything we might be able to learn from 'citations as a general concept' in order to put a rocket in our link building efforts...?

For example - there are certain themes or topics which get cited way more than others due to credibility factors... Maybe we can expand on these credibility factors...

You mean like definitions, FAQs, lists, and photos?

I was thinking more along the lines of coining 'certain words or processes' that cement you as the originator or inventor source that came up with the concept/ experiment. Scientific seems to garner the most citations - as they are leading edge tinkerers as opposed to 99% of ideas out there which are just new takes on existing ideas.

Maybe we can learn something there? To conduct more experiments and present our findings in a credible way...?

Are there any existing examples? Do free skins and templates count?

You could apply the same principle - being the first, skinning a new film - timed just as it comes out, or a new star just as they get publicized... Here in London we have a publicist who is a big name himself whoever he publicizes usually shoots to stardom. I don't know your industry or target group but if you were to publicize yourself as a pioneer in the field somehow. Developing a new way of skinning. I remember the guy who did Skins for Myspace just at the time it was taking off bagged a fast few million. I like the whole principle of feeding off of the incumbents ecosystem since capital is being injected into them - often there is an opportunity to feed off of the frenzy surrounding it.

The best way to do this is to create a new product or service and brand it with a usable name and then utilize viral tactics to have others use it.

Often those types of phrases become part of language and therefore create their own whole set of keywords.

You mean like a meme? "4 hour work week" for example...?

Do you have any examples?

Absolutely like a meme.

If I had examples, I would surely develop them out

I been indulging in some fascinating discussions on Linked in about this - the strucutres of language in reality.

Here are some clues for meming:
Irony + polarization + current/ hot + challenge popular belief + lever in a system + thoughts, feelings, behaviours, actions all feeding off each other + highly specific (no fluffy language)

I have been developing a formula over the years as to what makes the ultimate viral. I believe there is a formula - its not just luck. Ferris knows what he is doing - and I think I have uncovered some of it.

CainIV, I intend to write a succinct treatise on my findings, since my philosophy is very much "sharing is caring" I will post it here when I get a chance. I have some golden nuggets on written paper which needs to be digitalized. Stay tuned.
