Soapbox Out. Toolbox In.

The one constant in life is change. Without it, the world becomes stale, boring and worst of all – predictable. That said, I think it’s time to make some programming changes here at The Link Spiel.

Out go the longer posts and in come shorter ones. The Link Spiel format will become more a collection of “Link Tips” showcasing specific tactics, tools and linking resources than a running blog commentary. More focus will be placed on where and how to find links and less on talking about their relevance. Yes, relevance is important but with so many types of link promotions available I’d rather focus on talking about that than rehashing a concept already discussed to death.

(Disclaimer: The occasional long-winded rant on link buying, defending the Directories and stupid Christmas jingles may still happen).

I’ll also share link news from the engines and link to various SEO forums as I think both are important information sources. The Friends will still be stopping by with articles but other than that, the old format will cease and the new “Link Tip” format will begin.

I’m not very good with change but I dislike "predictable" even more so we’re shifting gears. Start with the blog….. Next the website and then maybe even a new hairstyle.
