Link Love – March 2014
Each month I spread some link love by sharing the very best articles published this month from the online business world.
There is a lot of noise out there in on various blogs and social media outlets, so this feature will include only the best content 🙂
If there is a piece of content you think is worthy of some link love, let me know in the comments and it may be included next month.

SEO and Link Building
Speaking of which, here is a nice summary of 18 types of backlinks that violate Google guidelines.
Content and Blogging
AJ who runs the site BlindFiveYearOld.com published a very popular article on inbound titled – The Ridiculous Power of Blog Commenting – which is a hot topic right now after CopyBloggers decision to remove commenting from their blog.
An article that will give you a flavour for how I believe many SEO bloggers feel is this article by Jon Cooper.
Jon reveals why he is ‘scared' to share content and tactics on his blog, as doing so could end up hurting both his business and that of his clients.
Two posts coming from Dave Schneider who was featured recently as the very first guest post on the blog. His guide to hacking Triberr was well received and he followed up with a equally good post on hacking Twitter. Social media seems to be his forte!
I love short, sharp and easily digestible content. This piece covers 7 social media analytics tools you can try today. Easy.
20 influential marketers share their top productivity hacks. I love the one from Cyrus Shepard from Moz.com.
One thing that's tough being a blogger, SEO, internet marketer and online business manager is juggling all of these things with minimal time. Email is one of my biggest time sucks, that and Skype. The team over at LeanMarketing.ca make a great case for not answering email.
Jeff Sauer makes a great case for “doing SEO yourself” for your business. He has a great blog, you should check it out.
An interesting conversion optimisation study from gov.uk on how they improved the number of organ donors by 350,000!
Read this great piece on the importance of starting your online business with Branding as your number one focus.
The DigitalMarketer.com blog wrote an interesting piece on how to calculate your average customer value. Something I've not done before , however I can see how important it is for taking that next step.
Sticking with Inbound for a second, I love this thread, it will make you stop and think about what it is you are doing and how people perceive you.
This last one is unrelated to online business but plays a large part in what I follow in terms of a healthy diet.
Is there anything you think I've missed that is worthy of some link love? Let me know in the comments.
