Let’s skip the corny, canned jokes and the awkward moments at the podium and just open the envelope, shall we? Ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the 2009 SEMMY Award in the Link Building category is … drum-roll, please …
Congratulations to our winner! Here’s a choice bit from the winning post:
43. Offer services or a product in exchange for a review. Don’t ask the bloggers or webmasters to link to you, they most often will do anyway.
44. Create something unique. Top 10s, top 250s, mash-ups, how-tos, best-ofs, surveys, studies, awards. Define the proper hook, create unique content and attract good links. The possibilities are infinite.
The top two runners-up in public voting were:
- The Fundamentals of Link Building
Adam Audette, AudetteMedia | 3/23/08
- The Definitive List (75+) of Link Building Techniques in 2008
Jeff Quipp, Search Engine People | 12/16/08
The winner and runners-up are welcome to grab the appropriate badge — we have a badge for both winners and runners-up.
