Period ! Get it or get out of the web biz !
In fact, links are *huge* money.

Each link you manage to attract is a potential that pays thousands of times in time for the effort of gaining it.

But no doubt, they’re worth a ton. I’d hazard a guess that “clean”, search-engine-friendly links from a prominent page on Yahoo would go for $50k/month at least. That’s just for SEO purposes, and very rough. It’d depend on how it’s structured/linked-to, and lots of other factors.

Hard to put a figure on it, but Yahoo.com has ~1.2 billion other pages linking to it. That’s… priceless for any website, even Reuters.

It has some resonance, because I was just interviewed by your colleague Christopher Swann who kindly wrote up some of my ideas in a commentary last week.

I was pleased to see the article come out but, being more used to blog coverage, it was unusual to notice that it did not include a link to my blog or article. In fact, I think it has since been updated to include a link to one of my papers – I believe the hyperlink wasn’t there originally.

I was very happy of course to link back to Chris’s article anyway…I trust that’s OK with Reuters!
