Find out why you sometimes need to act fast to take advantage of "big time" incoming links. You know the ones I mean...when you score a front page listing on Digg, or when Yahoo! features you as an "expert" link next to a story or when the Washington Post gives you a little link loving.
That's what happened to me today at my hobby site, The Lactivist. I'd spoken with a reporter from the Washington Post a few weeks ago about a story she was doing on milk banking and sharing. I'd been keeping an eye out for the story to go live and was obviously hoping that I might get a link out of the deal.
