SEO has the ability to drive massive traffic to any web site, provided you are doing it right. The number one ranking factor, by far, is the number and quality of links pointed at your website. In olden days all you needed was great number of links pointing at your site to rank for most any phrase. Google told us they cared about quality, relevant links, but what they said and what they did were two different things. Today, all that has changed.
Today Google is backing up the tough talk with a hard-core focus on quality and relevant links to your site; and a bunch of low quality links and over-optimized anchor text will do you no good at all.

Here are 10 ways to build links that still work today, along with specific recommendations and tips to help you master each link building technique.
