Search Marketing Blogs Band Together to Give Charities Link Love

heartThis post is of personal importance to me. While my prognosis for a normal life expectancy is now excellent, this August marks the two year anniversary of my diagnosis of cancer (stage 3B lymphoma). Because of the amazing folks at Mayo Clinic, I’m OK. Many others are not so lucky. It took me 7 months of chemo, 3 weeks of radiation, and loving help from many, especially my family and charitable organizations who offered support and information when truly needed.

Online Marketing Blogs Give the Gift of Links
In a blog “meme” among top ranking online marketing blogs, SEM firms are lending their link authority to charities. Links from top ranked websites are valuable assets for any website because incoming “link love” is a crucial attribute search engines use to evaluate a site’s relevance. High quality inbound links are important to achieve top rankings in organic SERPs. Therefore the result of these online marketing blogs banding together, for charity outbound linking, is truly the giving of gifts.

Our online marketing blog is relatively new. Still the aimClear search marketing blog homepage has achieved viability in some circles including links from well known trade blogs. We’re totally honored to share our fledgling link juice by adding some sites to the “charity meme” started by Skitzzo over at SEO Refuge. The power is in posting the whole list on as many websites as possible. First I’ll share some new charity links for the list. At the end of the post we’re putting up all the links we’ve found so far from online marketing blogs participating in the meme.

Non Profits that Helped Save My Life
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and patient services. The Society’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation’s largest lymphoma-focused voluntary health organization devoted exclusively to funding lymphoma research and providing patients and health care professionals with critical information on the disease. LRF’s mission is to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.
