    Hi Margaret,
    Nice write-ups as usual. One of my major concern is really the Linkbaiting.
    It’s one thing that I really concentrate on. But I am not saying that other link building is not that important to me. of course, they are (so) important as well because that’s what makes a business to keep going..
