A RIDICULOUSLY good read from Wiep.net...

"In the style of SEOmoz’ Search Engine Ranking Factors, this page includes the opinions of 17 well respected, international SEO and Link Building professionals on nearly 40 factors that possibly influence the value of a link. My opinion about each factor has been included into every score as well. Although not every possible influencing factor, nor every possible opinion has been included, this page covers the majority of the factors and is pretty accurate. At least, in my opinion.

The idea behind this research was to determine which factors professionals from the field of SEO consider to be of influence on the value of a link and/ or on the potential amount of link juice that a link can pass. Because most of us understand the value of links in terms of traffic, this research mainly focuses on the value that search engines may allocate to a link."

Agreed there J .... but it seems it was an ’opinion poll’ amongst knowledgeable types.... not an empirical study really. I saw a few things that are considered ’reality’ in my world of link building that weren’t even mentioned. And so once again we are left to our own devices and that’s the way I like it. No magic bullet, no secret sauce.... just good Ol wisdom :0)

I just found this post and was going to Sphinn it - my very first one.  But I am just as glad to see it here.  This is a must read for any link builder.  And not because of any magic bullet or silver bullet as theGypsy said, but because it is as close to a concensous based on stats as you will ever get in this industry.  I also like the fact that it is a business based on wisdom -- otherwise all the mortgage brokers would be SEOs right now.
