      I think it also highlights how much visitors are hungry for ways to build backlinks.

      Not only backlink but all are worth reading

    Hi Andrew,

    Super list of resources here.

    Per Antonio’s comment I checked out the back links blog post. Excellent. You hit building back links from a number of creative angels. I’m partial to blog commenting along with social bookmarking. Employing multiple strategies increases your chances of gaining high quality back links.

    I noted the number of comments on the post too. Good stuff!

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.

      Thanks, Ryan.

      I wonder if it will be the top post for 2011 as well?

    Andrew – I’m definitely not surprised that “the methods and 11 backlink tools I use” is number one because I thought that was great post and most people in the blogging world are always interested in new ways of building backlinks.

    I’m shocked that the post on “How to stay fit while working from home” isn’t in your top ten since I thought that was a very helpful article, for myself anyway.

    Great to see what were your most popular blog posts in 2010, and I hope you can keep posting around 4 articles each week in this 2011 year.

      The Get fit from from home is gaining momentum very fast. I think it is becasue I only posted it a few weeks ago.

    Hi Andrew,

    I think “Get Backlinks – Here are the 11 methods and backlink tools I use” really deserves it’s place because I liked it too (and from the looks of it so did other people). I always enjoy find new ways of building links.

    And I think in the near future “I Hate Content Thieves” post will be on top too, because more and more people are starting to copy the works of others and pass it as their own :(.

    • Andrew January 8, 2011 at 7:41 am #


      Perhaps a little guide on dealing with content thieves is needed.

      You’re welcome – I’m glad it helped.

    It’s all about the backlinks, ain’t it? lol

    I gleaned a little something from each. 🙂

    • Andrew January 8, 2011 at 7:42 am #


      I’m glad.

      At some stage, I think another building backlinks post is needed.
