Sorry for the newb question but I continuously see comments "Dont directly blast your site", "You're gonna get deindexed like that", "You went about it the wrong way", etc etc. So tell me this, whats the CORRECT way to build backlinks to your website? If your not directly blasting "your site" then how are you building backlinks for it? Do I make a web 2.0 site with articles directly related to "my site" and hope users click the links on the web 2.0 site to send traffic to my site? If thats the case then wouldnt I be building backlinks to the web 2.0 site instead of my "actual" website? I know these are newb questions but I honestly read soooo much on here that i confuse myself only because Im reading threads from like 2011, 2012 and some are present but i dont know what still works and what methods to avoid. Just hoping maybe someone can give me some "solid" advice. Not asking to be spoon fed but just asking for maybe a method that is still relevant in todays standards.
