It’s been very busy for me this month so unfortunately I do not have anything to write about.  However, I am introducing my monthly link round-up where I share some of the most link worthy blog posts out there about SEO - I guess that’s my treat.

As for the trick?  Well - there is none.  I am not putting up any old links just for the hell of it.  I passionately endorse these articles because I know I will refer to them again in the future.

Happy Halloween and stay safe out there, folks!
