I would guess that if you asked this concern 20 years earlier, the outcomes would be the reverse.I asked the question because John Mueller of Google noted this on Twitter “from my experience, the largest part of the SEOs dont build links.” So I figured I d ask the community and based on the reactions, where I asked “SEOs – what percentage of your SEO work is involved with link structure?
13% said 50-75% of their time is concentrated on link structure
20% said 25-50% of their time is concentrated on link building.
58% stated under 25% of their time is focused on link buildingHere is the Twitter survey: Forum discussion at Twitter.
