Getting links doesn't seem to be as straight forward as it used to.

- so many links out there are nofollow
- directories carry less weight than they once did
- I doubt article directories carry much weight also
- reciprocal linking seems to be a thing of the past
- forum posts are said to count for little
- ditto blog comments
- you can't buy links for fear of a Google penalty

So what are you to do?

How do you go about building quality links?

Very interesting question, Paul.

I've not done reciprocal linking for years, I didn't really see the benefit.

I do post a lot on various fora and comment on blogs. It might sound cheesy but I just try to make friends and provide some interesting content on my sites. It's not a short-term strategy, But in the longer term we can all win from it.

You want in body links if possible. Try writing articles for respected blogs or other forms of link bait.
