Hey Hatters, I recently hired an SEO(Back-linking) "expert" from India through a popular outsourcing site. Yesterday, this guy sent me a report with a list of 1458 directory websites in which he claims he has done submissions to in the last 2 weeks. I did verify randomly in a few and indeed I saw the links. He wants to go ahead and do 1500 more submissions. As ambitious as this sounds, I do not really have confidence in directory submissions anymore. Mark you this is a brand new sit - 1.5 mths old. So my questions to hatters is: Do you recommend this many links to directory websites? Do you think that such many links in such a short time might trigger spam sensors in Goggles? Whats the fastest, easiest method you've used to get indexed fast and ranked well? Thanks.
