A Living Link Building Journal

There is an excellent thread at WebmasterWorld that is basically a webmaster's journal of his link building efforts for a specific site. Wheel, a senior member, started the thread about a week ago, saying:

I've just launched a new website and am going to back it up with a link building campaign. I'm going to document my link building here, and welcome any comments.

Notes: - link building pros will find this boring. Perhaps small indie business owners will find this useful (which is what I am). - I'm starting out with great content. I'm in a competitive niche and a regular old website won't cut it. - I'm looking for 'people' to give me links, not 'sites'. - I expect folks will find I don't have a lot of surprises. - current stats, Google has <30 pages indexed (I just launched 4000-5000 pages). Yahoo shows <3500 backlinks.

Since then, the thread is now 30 or so messages deep. The thread takes you through Wheel's link building journey for one of his sites. I am sure some of us can learn a thing or two from just reading through this thread.

Let me just quote one of the responses from another senior member at the forum:

Nice :) this thread should be printed and pinned on many many walls ..how to get links with style and intelligence :)
