SEO Link Building Worksheet

When you start a link building campaign you need a link building worksheet to keep track of where you have built links from and whether there are opportunities to return to certain sites and build more links.

Another reason to keep track of what you are doing is that directories that are human edited do not like their time being wasted on duplicate submissions. This can sometimes cause you to be removed from directories.

If you ask someone for a link exchange you want to know who you have asked so you do not look silly by asking again in the future.

If you keep all your link resources in the same format you can use the sort button and it becomes quite easy to see if you have duplicate entries.

Link Exchanges

Keep track of link exchanges where you will have to contact the other webmaster to exchange. These resources can be gathered from many places.
