    I just read some interesting stuff saying it'd be very hard to rank a website if all you had pointing to it was web.2.0's and I thought these were supposed to be awesome T1 links to help you rank, etc...

    what back-links does a site need to rank? I know diversity is good, but it doesn't seem like tossing in bookmarks or blog comments have gotten me anywhere either.

    Just curious, what is it that's working? I've got a site I can't get to budge for a small kw competition, and the competition all on the 1st page has less that 100 backlinks at that, and their content is terrible, and they're ranking with it, 1 position the content is literally a few links, and then some blank dots repeated over and over again.

    My site is pretty good with the on-site seo, gotta be something I'm missing here?

    Video sites, Q&A sites, doc-sharing sites, audio sites, niche relevant comments, niche relevant blog posts. Try and get different types of links for diversification.

    Man you're here from 2009. Use the search function, its bein' discussed in 1000 threads the way of raking as of now. Stay away from seo if you've no budget is my advice. Do social media to gather your first money.

    Web2.0 - phrase that's been around for like 10 years and used on BHW as if it's the wave of the future. You'd think they'd at least upgrade to 3.0 by now.

    oh, I've used the search function, and read many of the threads, like on autofillmagic people seem to really like, and it helps create web 2.0's...and bots that create web 2.0's like senuke

    I still use them, and all the "junk" links. They are still useful for diversification, and branding purposes, you just shouldnt try to rank a site for any keywords that have a decent amount of competition with low power links. A natural profile will have links from all kinds of platforms and well known websites. Not just sape links and blog posts ;)

    The best backlinks you can get is contextual links on reputable websites, like news websites. There are reporters and writers for these news websites on the internet looking for people that have expertise in certain niches to interview, and if they pick you for an interview they will put your link on these authority websites. One of them links will boost the hack out of your website.

    Blog commenting is no longer as good backlinking for SEO purpose at Google.

    Consider private blog network also as backlinking for this year.

    I would recommend related comments and relevant blog posts/ guest posts. Also go for social media promotion.
