We spent the first half of this podcast episode, Everything Entrepreneurship #15, talking about where link building is at today, a topic I am very interested in because I spent the last week researching traffic strategies for my new e-guide.

Link Building In 2014

In the second half of this podcast Walter talks about his experience listening in to a woman who was part of a seed investment round in Twitter. We then talk about funding and doing a pitch for investment as a startup.

During the show I mentioned a previous article I wrote about putting together a “pitch deck” for when we were looking for investors for CrankyAds, which includes the different areas we covered in our presentation.

    The quality is more important than the quantity, focus on high quality backlinks which acquired from high authority websites.

  • Yes well said. This is truly a great post. After penguin link building era is changed much.

    Anyways people tend to forget or not be aware of the deep linking concepts most of the times.
