For those who are link building and SEO in general there are different "hats" used to describe a SEO technique.

White Hat

As an owner of a number of websites and blogs here is my input regarding a few of the ideas put forth in the referenced article above.
  • Contacting the site owner for a contextual link, linked mention or replace a broken link
    When I create a page I add contextual links plus links to quoted blocks of content, resources or significant people as I write the page (be it a page or blog article) so contacting me after the page is published to ask for a link is ignored. Requesting to replace a broken link is also ignored. Why? Because in my experience the only people who do this are link builders and they want to get a link to a low performing page or site.

    I also edit/update pages when new relevant information is available with the source.

    Now if someone I knew of as reputable contacted me personally then that would be different. HINT - build a good reputation in your chosen field and these tactics might work out better for you.
  • Best of list
    Because affiliate marketers use this tactic to earn income as a reader I am wary of the credibility of these lists.

    However if one of my sites was listed on a reputable site without me asking I certainly would appreciate it.
