How Do You Build Links In The Penguin age?

Posted by Non-Hamster on August 5th, 2012

I've been wondering lately, just how difficult is it to get inbound links to a blog so that it's traffic and page rank will increase *WITHOUT* having your efforts nullified by the latest Panda and Penguin updates to Google's algorithm.?

It's been several years now since reciprocal links, two-way, three-way etc. linking schemes aren't worth the time it takes to set them up.  They're all essentially little more than a hypertext circle jerk that wastes everybody's time.  This is because Google's gotten pretty good at detecting schemes like that and devaluing the links in question.

I'm also not particularly interested in doing the blog comment routine.  I do occasionally leave a comment on a blog but I do not have the time to hunt up relevant blogs that allow so-called "do-follow" links in their comments.  Nor do I wish to read through articles that I honestly do not want to read just so that I can find *something* in it that I can make a legitimate comment on.

And of course, getting links that are rel="nofollow" is a waste of time as well because I specifically want links that will pass pagerank.  Ideally those links should be permanent one way links.

And no, I'm not going to buy links.  Sooner or later any site selling links is going to be detected by Google and the links coming from those sites are going to be de-valued as a result of future refinements to their algorithm.  Besides which, I cannot afford to buy links anyway.
