How to send traffic to my website for free
Ah, this topic just caught the attention of all link builders and content marketers ;) Well, why not? Link building has long been one of the toughest tasks in SEO and digital marketing. For someone like me who has spent around 8+ years in SEO; link building (or rather link earning) has remained and still continues to be the most challenging. Research suggests that content marketing is on a boom with 85% of online marketers directly involved with content marketing.

As we covered earlier, US Representative Joe Barton sent Google a letter with 24 questions relating to privacy — along with a week to answer them. I was annoyed that some seemed basic and already answered in a way that one of his interns could easily uncover. But Google’s now replied to the letter with a 19-page response with answers. You’ll find the responses in this PDF file. It’s the weekend, so I’m off and leaving a deeper analysis until Monday. Google is providing the PDF file to media outlets that asked for it. I think we’re the first to have done so. Below, the contents of the letter in HTML format: 1. Please describe Google’s retention policy with respect to the following data.
