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?
