February 7, 2008 John 0

Backlinks – quality does matter a lot more than quantity. How I learned to stop worrying about the exact link number and came to focus on finding the right links. Now that I only seek out good links, I can go back to worrying about the total number.

More than I expected, and my first hint that my link building efforts were on the right track. Its usually a good sign when your second website grows in pagerank quicker than the first. Nowadays I think PR2 in four months is a dreadfully long time to wait.
