The book provides simple explanations and straight forward advice when it comes to building links; chapters are well outlined and flow from point to point. If you are new to link building this book is a great resource for anyone looking for tools, tactics, and case studies to learn from.

Eric Ward has been a thought leader in how to build links the right way since before there even was a right way. His extensive relationship building background mixed with challenging projects has given him insights and methodologies that are advanced and increasingly necessary in today's Internet marketing world. He has brought his many years of hard fought experience to the pages of this book, and I heartily recommend it to anyone seeking to grow their skills.

An SEO classic! This link-building book by far provides the very best advice, stories and actionable white- hat link-building tips. This is the best link-building book I have ever read!

For anyone who's been ‘hit’ by Panda, Penguin, or any other algorithmic update by Google, this book is a must-read. It’s time to quit looking over your shoulder and start building links that will stand the test of time. Eric has been one of the foremost thought leaders on link building since before links became a dominant ranking factor, so there's no one better to train you on seeking out and acquiring the high-quality links that will bring you visibility and mindshare that go far beyond search engine results.

If you're in SEO and take your job seriously, you know Eric and Garrett. When Eric and Garrett talk about link building, you listen. The only issue when they talk is— there's too much genius to write it all down. So, when they do the writing down for you, you buy the book and read it. Twice. At least. You won't regret it.
-Joost de Valk, Founder and CEO of Yoast.com

Eric is the undisputed master of quality link building. We've worked together for years and he's frequently surprised me with new insights and little-known, and easily executed, strategies to build our customers' backlink portfolios.
