Online PR Lessons on Linking from Steve Rubel
Over the next few days I will be posting some of the lessons I learned from the panelists and attendees at the Bulldog Reporter PR Technology Conference in New York yesterday.
Here's lesson number one, which came from Steve Rubel…I'm paraphrasing….
Marketing people are always so worried about sending people away from their sites. They work so hard to get people to go to their sites and once they've got them they try to trap them. But that's the wrong idea. Send people away. You want people to view your blog as a resource. Send them away to interesting places and they'll keep coming back. Google built their business by sending people away.
