I Don’t Share Enough Link Love – I Hope That Buddha Forgives Me

Yes, you heard me right – I hope Buddha forgives me. He’s actually a pretty cool guy, certainly the best God I’ve ever read about.

But I digress

Right, first off I have never had a blogroll here. Yes, yes, I should know better – if you don’t show some link love then why would you expect any back?

Well I’ve been very fortunate and lots of kind people have linked to my humble blog. Thank you everyone who has linked here :grin:

But one thing that’s really pissed me off is when I take a peak at Technorati. Occasionally I see links coming at me from guys who I know here in cyberspace, some of whom have this rather lonely message after their blog name:

Technorati blog info

So here’s some links to take away that horrible text:

First off…

If you asked me who were the best Irish Internet marketing/monetising people I would probably say ‘not the one’s who advertise it’. The cutest guys and gals are the ones who actually just do it. I reckon Gavin at Ireland SEO Marketing is one of those, and his blog is worth a read because he’s at the coalface and knows how to work the system.

Those bloody awards again

While I am quite outspoken about a certain Irish awards ceremony, there is one winner who I think deserved to get that golden thingie. So if you’re looking for a web designer in Navan, that link brings you to such a person’s blog from which his website is just a click away.

Really slick design

Last link this time around points at a site whose design spoke volumes the first time I stumbled upon it. I’m not sure how I found Stuart Curry’s design website, but I can say that it’s very hard to knock his design skills. Really sweet. And I think he’s for hire.

  3. I’d actually consider myself one that “Doesn’t advertise, just does it” and I honestly thought my designs were slick. Oh well. You think you know who your (industry) friends are.

  4. Thanks for the kind words Richard!

  5. Don’t take it personally Dave. The reason I put this up was that it pissed me off seeing their blogs in Technorati with the lonely ‘no blogs link here’. Now lets be honest, you have never suffered from a link deficit, now have you?

    And just to clear things up further, you are very much on the “Doesn’t advertise, just does it” radar screen. In fact I’d go so far as to say you’re probably one of the busiest Irish on-line marketers.

    Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten you :grin:

  6. Hahaha, I was only joking! Besides, I get enough link love from your nofollowed comments ;)

  8. Maybe I’d get more link love if I wrote more about the irish web industry instead of putting up stupid videos all the time…

  9. Stuart, I’ve found that tutorials/how to articles can be a great source of links. Writing about Irish issues will also get you noticed. Be sure to link back to other people and use trackbacks and pings to leave trails. Leave comments around the place – you’d be amazed how many visits you get from comments.

  10. I never saw this before. I just found it through technorati. Thanks Richard. Nice to know you care. I’ve got 4 links now on technorati… wahoo!!! :D

  12. The problem is that once you make a blog post, more work comes flooding in.
