    So having been reading here on BHW for a little while, it seems there are all sorts of theories and methods, and it seems like each of those methods actually works for some people. So I'm not going to say any particular method is good or bad, because I know that each method has people who support it and believe in it.

    Personally, I'm leaning towards long term, white hat methods.

    I read about people building 1,000 links per month, or 500 social bookmarks, or 50 high quality .edu links per month. But, to me, none of that seems "natural" let alone practical (for me).

    What are your thoughts on going old fashioned, manual, high quality white hat? As in, only a few links per month on relevant, high PR sites? Hand written, good quality content/posts?

    Would I be successful building 3 links to my site per month, on PR 5-7 websites, in the same general category and niche? These would not be forum PROFILE links, or footer links, and most of them would not be diluted with "no-follow".

    I would choose sites with a lot of activity, so I would have a lot of real eyes on my links and would have real people clicking to my website. Hopefully, the search engines would recognize the high quality level?

    Depends entirely on your niche and competition.

    In some niches this would work quite well and quite quickly
    In some it would work after a lot of struggle over time
    In others it likely would not work at all

    There is no one size fits all solution to any niche. Competition is different and you need to be "1 better" than the competition. So that's where you start - competition analysis for your chosen phrases.
    If the top 10 have authority, large sites, great retention and billions of links forget it
    If they are relatively established (2+ years old) hundreds of links, decent sized sites, decent trust and authority - then you might stand a chance after a year or two.
    If they are new, spammy, thousands of poor links - then a few hundred "good" ones will likely win through over time - week? Probably months - but this is a sweet spot area for WH marketers

    There are almost infinite variations between these examples - but until you know your competition, it's a question no-one can really answer.
