Tom Antion - Website Linking Strategy


Link Supertrick:

Ethically use “no follow” tags. A no follow tag is a piece of HTML code that tells the search engine not to follow an outbound link on your page. The more outbound links you have to unrelated sites, the less important your page appears to the search engines.
But let’s say it’s really important for you to have a resource section on your site that sends people to lots of other resources that, technically in the eyes of the search engines, aren’t exactly related to your site.

This would hurt your importance unless you put the no follow tag on each link. That way, visitors to your site could use the links but the search engines would not recognize the links.

This technique is totally ethical when you are simply linking out to other people’s sites. It becomes unethical if you have made a reciprocal link deal with someone because putting the no follow tag on cheats the other person out of the value of their incoming link.

Tom Antion - Get the Facts First

If you are not familiar with your intended audience, you might ask in your pre-program research,
or questionnaire  How diverse is your group? What are some of the characteristics of the members from each of the countries represented? The answers to these questions will help you plan your strategy for connecting with a particular audience.

When I was doing my planning for a presentation in Washington, D.C., I found out that 25 percent of the audience was Asian Indian. I knew very little about the Indian culture and didn't have long to plan. What I did know was that the Dunkin' Donuts store located near my home was owned   and operated by Indians. That was a good excuse to stop in, down a few eclairs, and do some research. I told the proprietor what I was trying to accomplish and he was glad to help. Out of all the information he gave me about humor in India, I only used one line. That was all it took to connect.

The line was, "I want to tell all my new Indian friends I'm sorry Johnny Lever couldn't make it." Johnny Lever was one of the top comedians in India. They lit up and I went on with the program.

If your local donut shop isn't run by the appropriate nationality for your next presentation, don't worry. There are other sure-fire methods to get the information you need. If you are presenting out of the country, get the opinion of local people before you attempt to use humor. If you are presenting in the U.S., seek out members of the nationality to whom you are presenting. If you don't happen to know any, you can always call their embassy. I've called our State Department, The World Bank and even Voice of America for information. Just tell the receptionist you want to speak to someone from the country of interest. Don't forget to tell them you want to converse in English.
