Turning Mentions into Links

Whilst doing some research for a client today, I came across a great tool that I thought I would share. The tool, created using Yahoo Pipes allows SEOs to generate a list of sites and pages where a business or brand is mentioned but no corresponding link is included.

Yahoo Pipes is a pretty powerful and flexible tool that lets users manipulate and mashup content from around the web to create output that meets their particular needs.

The creator of this tool, James Charlesworth, goes to great pains in his blog post to explain how to create your own Pipe by setting up a Google Alert and then parsing that content, but then in good old Blue Peter fashion, kindly provides a link to one hes prepared earlier!

Definitely worth checking out. As part of your link-building efforts, this can be provide quick gains.
