This week’s web recap of marketing ideas includes everything from Google backlinks, podcasting, conversation, and conference calls.

1. When Google starts banning backlinks from reliable sources with the claim that said reliable source is not of quality, it’s time to step back and re-evaluate your online marketing efforts. Backlinks have always been a reliable way to add credibility to your Company and website.
