link expertsEvery year, Rae Hoffman-Dolan posts here Link Expert Interview and she did the same, this time at a new company.

Every year the answers tend to be on the same wave length from year to year but this year, I feel the tune on links have changed. I recommend you read the full interview which features Aaron Wall, Dave Snyder, Debra Mastaler, Eric Ward, Julie Joyce, Justilien Gaspard, Michael Gray, Rae Hoffman-Dolan, Rand Fishkin, Roger Montti, and Todd Malicoat.

I pulled out the key points I felt the group was making, although there was not 100% agreement on all these points, the majority did agree:

  • More Hostility Between Google & Webmasters Than Ever Before
  • Importance Of Links To Lessen Over Time
  • 'Outing' Is Frowned Upon
  • Easily Link Building Doesn't Work
  • Most Not Worried About Bad Links

Again, I recommend you read the full Link Expert Interview.
