    Hey, brand new here.

    I arranged access to a few aged and edu backlinks and I wanted some advice on what to do next as to A) Maximize my use of these and B) Not get smacked down by Google.

    A) Should a do an old fashioned key-word link backlink on these domains I got access to? Or is there a new tactic that is better? Most of them are blog comments and guest book type stuff.

    B) Are there some simple pointers I should obey as not to anger Google?

    C) After I've set all the back links what do I do next? Do you still want to ping it with one of those pinger sites, or is there anything else better I need to do in order to maximize their effect and fly under Google's radar?


    Many thanks to and sorry if any of these are dumb questions. :06:

    a. yes keyword anchor backlinks are still best just vary the keyword

    b. build the same amount of links ever day. consistency and velocity are important.

    c. i never ping but opinions vary.

    Thank you for the advice.

    Two questions based on your answers though:

    By saying "consistency and velocity are important" what do you mean exactly? Are you saying that Google will notice if I spam 100 backlinks in on tuesday, nothing the next 4 days and then dump another 100 on Friday and punish me? Or... are you saying that Google rewards a site that shows a more consistent flow?

    And as for velocity, what is a sensable threshold there? Are you saying not to do too many at once? How many is a smart limit

    Thx!!!

    b. I thought this was important when I first started... it's only important for blog commenting it seems.

    I've done keywords 5 mths ago got #1 for them (competitive ones) and left it... and they're still #1.

    I'd venture a guess that as long as you keep HQ backlinks coming... you're fine, but this also doesn't even seem to be necessary. Velocity and consistency? I think quality matters significantly more especially now.

    Several sites in the top 10 for my main profit keyword haven't built backlinks since mid 2010, and that term gets >150k exact search matches/mth

    Excellent advice.
    Vary the amount of links daily so you do not leave a footprint but do build backlinks on a consistent basis.

    Very interesting. So it would be a smarter tactic to try to focus more of just doing a very good job with high-quality backlinks on the best sites I can get on then? I'd imagine this will be a safer tactic with respect to not stirring up google's suspicion as well.

    Is there any advice you have with respect to how a starter should approach these HQ backlinks? On the comment and guestbook type ones does it help if they are on topics that just happen to be similar to what I'm linking to in the first place? And does it help if I leave a comment that is fairly long along with my backlink that has some related terms and keywords used in the writing?

    Again, thank you guys so much... I've been a bit overwhelmed with trying to tackle this backlinking stuff. U rock!

    I'd never consider blog comments to be "HQ links". These are links embedded in content with low OBL and heavy support from thousands of links pointing to those pages.

    Ideally you want embedded anchor links at very high PR pages with low OBL and inside unique content.

    You can figure out how to do do this "infinitely" by reading threads on BHW.
    You can achieve some gains with blog commenting, but even high PR blog comments are just meh compared to the work they req (scraping high PR blogs with <200 OBLs is going to be such a mammoth challenge as you'll very well see)

    There's no need to build the same amount of backlinks everyday. That's a fairy tail. How will Google know how many backlinks you build per day? They index them at random intervals lol.

    Very interesting advice! Could you perhaps point me to some links to those threads? I tried the search feature here and I relaized that I don't know enough about the topic to even know which thread I should read.

    Thx

    IMHO, we should do in a natural way which simply means unsteadily and irregularly. That is also what life is based on. I mean, get backlinks irregularly. Do not get the same amount of backlinks everyday.

    Day 1: get 20 backlinks
    Day 2: sleep, watch TV
    Day 3: Watch a movie
    Day 4: Get 90 backlinks
    .....
    And so on.

    So how many backlinks is a reasonable total to shoot for total, say in a month?

    And are there any services or software that you'd reccomend or is by hand the very best way?
