+Darren Sheffield and the team at +The Media Image have put together an incredibly useful opinion piece around the #linkbuilding debate.
With the recent spate of Google penalties, many have begun asking themselves who is best placed to tackle such a penalty – the in house team or external SEO experts. The Media Image’s +Darren Sheffield  interviewed the following leading SEO experts to get their views on the matter: +Barry Adams +Malcolm Slade +Gareth Hoyle +IrishWonder's SEO Consulting +Rishi Lakhani +Ralph du Plessis +Patrick Hathaway +Fili Wiese +Ammon Johns +Dixon Jones +Kristine Schachinger 
Who is best placed to solve a Google penalty?, the internal team who caused it?, an external penalty expert? or a collaboration between the two?
