Thanks Aaron, I'll be listening to it.

How about thoughts on what's next in search engine strategy? What do you see engines putting into the mix to combat link manipulation, etc.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on outbound linking - how important are outbound links from the perspective of SEO and their perceived algo weight. Got me thinking of this today after learning about SEOmoz adding default nofollows. Seems like we could get carried away with this, it's a bit of the camel's nose under the tent...

Hey Aaron,

How about responding to what people wrote in regard to your previous invitation?

Hey Aaron, I hope you don't mind, this is a tad bit off topic from this particular post but is in reference to your SEO Book in general. I noticed that when searching on Google for SEO book your site comes up several times in the top. That's great! I am curious though, does your book discuss methods of how you managed to get those sub listings on the first result - tools, book, archives, about? I will probably be purchasing the book anyways, but would be excited to know if that info was in there.

How many URL's can you own before Google penalizes you? Is it unlimited? Is there a way to keep the from knowing which domains you own?

What are your tips for a new site getting inboard links to their site? If starting out what can you do to get started?

Hi Jeremy
Those sublinks appear often for brand related queries, or other queries where Google thinks the top result is by far and away the most relevant.

Hi Skadamo
I don't think of it in terms of exact numbers. The bigger penalty for most people is going to be their limited mindshare. One person can only do so much and do it well.

Hi Evan
How about create a site worth linking at, and being a bit less aggressive with the ad placement until after you establish some sort of trusted link equity or brand recognition.

Hi Aaron

A global vision of the SEO industry would be helpful for those of us who are not in the US - ie is the US market ahead of Europe in terms of strategy, uptake of ideas, traffic generation via natural search (as a pose to paid inclusion), etc.

I often get the feeling that in Europe we are lagging behind the US (if only in terms of the number of people such as yourself talking about it, blogging about it and acting on it), even if such SEO/SEM practices are perfectly applicable to other markets/languages.

Hi Aaron, I didn't get to listen to the show, Can you please tell me how to access it? I went to the good karma link you posted above, but was not able to find the show. Thanks.

December 8, 2006 - 4:38pm

The archive link should be up on that page soon.

December 8, 2006 - 7:31pm

Aaron would you care to comment on the increase in adoption of SEO by major and mid sized companies? And how can SEO compaines increase the "goodwill" within the advertising and marketing community?

I look forward to listening.
