    Matt, thanks for the round up.

    The first thing I’ve looked at from your list is “Matt Cutts covering how to avoid buying a penalised domain”.

    I thought he would present a Google service that lets us simply input URL and get the answer if it is penalised. But he didn’t so this time :)

    A nice collection of useful articles spanning different categories. Personally, I’ve been through almost all the articles related to the SEO and link building section.

    But the social media articles collection is something that I will find useful. Some articles seems to be much promising and I plan to read them up soon.

    There are some other articles too that I’m planning to read. Thanks for compiling this list man!

    I found the link to this post on Kingged.
