  2. Hey Matthew, thanks for posting these roundups. I’m always so busy i find i go through phases where I don’t read anything SEO related. I have become totally disillusioned by the amount of spin certain well known sites put on SEO so a broader resource id more use.

    The article with the 19 link building strategies was a really good read and also the AirBnb sneaky trick. I don’t know how these big companies get away with such things. I used to do something similar in the past and I got penalized every time.

      Yeah naughty naughty, but it’s a good insight into how strong exact match anchor text is still ;)

    Hi Matthew,
    I’m always impatient to read your e-mails, a lot of stuff that you are very kind to put in, and to concentrate this huge world of information in just one top of a pyramid.
    Thank you a lot, take care my friend!!
