Link Building Idea: Visit/Discover etc sites
Something I've known for a while and I haven't read anything about is the "visit" and "discover" sites
For example on a national level
There are loads visit and discover sites for your local areas too.. down to counties (uk), states and bigger cities, just search google and see..
They're always high PR and have links from a lot of .gov and .edu/ac.uk, so If you have a site containing any kind of information about your local area, reaching out to these sorts of sites can get you some very nice links.
You could maybe even make some taylormade content for the very purpose of being able to approach them with it.
