On his own blog, Wiep collected data over the past few months from many esteemed link builders and presented his own link value factors. How important is the anchor text? How important are the number of links? What about the age of the page or the contextual relevance?

The result of Wiep's research from many folks, including our very own Barry, has resulted in a very awesome piece of information where no one can really agree. As Jill Whalen says:

Interesting that once again, there are no definitive answers and most people are simply using their best "guesses" when it comes to determining the weight of any particular SEO factor.

Either way, it's incredible to see how diverse we are in our guesses about link value. And it should help with decision-making either way.
