  53. 53. Notes: General rules of thumb<br /><ul><li>If you want to be on Google's website, then don't contaminate the internet too much.
  54. 54. Hiring the wrong people to link build. And giving them the wrong metrics to work to i.e. X number of links for Y $$
  55. 55. Link building is a qualitative thing.</li></ul>Sites worth checking out for link building<br /><ul><li>Hang out on sphinn. There is some great tutorial info there ref: and of course webmaster world:
  56. 56. Sites like wickedfire are ok, but be prepared to wade through a lot of noise</li></li></ul><li>Notes: Internal redirections<br />Do an audit of the site, looking for the best places for rediricts and dropping links.<br />site: keyword excl section x i.e. show me the most relevant parts of the siteexcluding this folder<br />query: world cup    - go through analytics and pick the low traffic on topic pages you want to sacrifice / link for<br />From this time, drop in those links into your body content from teh selected pages.<br />On the redirects, its a case of picking the low traffic pages that are generally subject related, that wont rank for the money phrases. <br />
  57. 57. Notes: Setting up conversion points <br /><ul><li> Add your include code to show your takeover banners on D-day and comment them out.
  58. 58. For the banners, DON'T use HTML - Just use stuff that engines don't like to crawl. / gif / jpeg / flash. its important not to have 'words' that could accidently mess your on site optimisation.
  59. 59. Moving into towards D-day…
  60. 60. Keep an eye on webmaster tools     - track those rankings    - regularly check that your site is clean ( I have seen a ton of malware attacks recently)     - monitor the traffic and keywords your '301 doner pages' have.    And your analytics.</li>
