A truly naturally way to build links

Metal chainI tell clients all of the time about this. If you want to see one of the best models for an optimized site with NATURAL link building, then there is only one place to go!  WIKIPEDIA!

And if you actually want to examine how to properly construct the code of a website to be fully optimized on the page?? Again, Wikipedia. SO, it looks like somebody else also knew this and decided to follow this natural flow and confirm it with link building to wikipedia.  Here it is! The Wikipedia Model!

This is great news as the big dogs of search are filtering more and more and more.  Overall, this is especially worrisome to me and reminds me of "GROUP THINK"…  if everyone thinks something is a good idea and gives it a plus 1 in Google then it will rise in the rankings…  I don’t recall wanting to get everybody ELSE’s opinion on search results…  search is NOT the FAMILY FEUD for Pete’s sake!

I’ve made the switch finally.  No longer use Google Apps fo eMail as I have previously discussed.  Instead, I am using Apple’s Mobile Me and forwarding email from my webhost to my me.com account.  And I have switched out Google as my primary search tool and gone to DuckDuckGo.com  See below!
