<p>To prove this is more than just a list of random posts I’ve thrown together – I have added my thoughts and comments to each post. Just click “why this is epic” to read why the post made the list.</p>

<div class=”toggle-content”>Scrapebox sounds like a dirty bit of software but this is a solid way of mining guest post opportunities. I’m a big fan of techniques like this because it’s about helping SEOs to be quicker at gathering opportunities meaning there is more time for sifting and evaluating. Scrapebox is like an enterprise version of the simple <a href=”http://skyrckt.com/guestposttool“>Guest Post Opportunities tool</a> I put together earlier in the year which uses ImportXML.</div><!–/.toggle-content–>

<div class=”toggle-content”>I think this post is great for so many reasons, firstly because it is the head of SEO strategy at a well-respected SEO agency saying that SEO isn’t necessarily the best option and certainly isn’t the only option. The concept of being channel neutral is something we all need to get to grips with, after all, it is the outcome that matters more. It is epic also because it offers some sound tactical advice on growing a site (particularly a new site).</div><!–/.toggle-content–>

<div class=”toggle-content”>A very interesting research-led piece that challenges the wisdom of the year that “social is the key to SEO”. I have to say I agree with Wil that as things stand, social should still just be a part of your SEO efforts because whilst social’s influence is growing, activities like linkbuilding still reign supreme in terms of delivering results.</div><!–/.toggle-content–>

<p>To finish this post (and this year) I would like to point out that content curation is far more time-consuming than content creation. <img src=’http://skyrocketseo.co.uk/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif‘ alt=’:-)’ class=’wp-smiley’ /> The thoughts in my head find their way onto my computer screen far quicker than this list came together. It took me about 8 times longer to put this post together as it did any other blog post I have written this year. But hopefully it was worth it…</p>
<p>Have a great Christmas – enjoy some time off and spend it with the people that matter in your life. I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has made this year so incredible – clients, employees, subscribers, supporters and you dear reader.</p>

<p>I have to climb aboard the James Fan Wagon. This is by far the best post I’ve seen in the past six months. I’m new to this whole SEO world and I’ll be spending at least the next week combing through each and every link provided.</p>
<p>Thanks James, for yet ANOTHER thoughtful and useful post and resource…one that I’ve already bookmarked and thrown into Evernote just to doubly ensure it doesn’t get lost!</p>
<p>Happy holidays and can’t wait to hear from you in 2012.</p>
