Can you make link building cool? According to a thread at SEW named Slickest Link Building Tricks you can. Link building strategies are often posted over at the forums, basically on a daily basis. Now, a new twist to link building is being formulated. The goal of the thread mentioned above is to define each link building method and then sort them in order of "slickness". If you have interesting ways to build links, please post your comment here or at the forum.
One of the slickest methods I have seen posted in this thread so far goes like. "Pissing people off using graphics and obscure phrases, (usually taken out of context), so that when the pisseee, (or their cronies), wants to discuss it, they have little choice but to link to the page. Do it correctly and the anchor text is built in."
