ok, so ive built some sites...and now wanna get some traffic...so ill need some links. this brings up some questions to mind. 1. ive seen some sites on places like DP with 3000+ backlinks...and these sites are selling for 80 bucks. correct me if im wrong but its gotta take ages to build 3000 backlinks? 2. can i work out my PR backwards. i mean for example if my goal is PR 3.....how many pr 3 inbound links would i need to equal a pr3 for my site....how many pr 6 links would i need etc. 3. i once found a site that let me input the name of the site and then it would list all the sites that links to me....their pr....and if the link was do or no follow. sadly i lost this link...anyone know of anything like this. 4. If you are creating a squidoo or blogger etc, how many times would you link to your site from that mini site. would you just send one link to one page...or link to as many pages as possible as many times as possible? 5. if building backlinks do you focus all you effort on one page of a site. i mean if you have a ten page site would you get one link to each page....or ten links to one page? 6. if building links through submitting to article directories, do you have to submit unique content to all of them. i mean if your rewriting the article everytime then that's a lot of work for just one link. 7. why would anyone bother submitting to article directories if you could just submit your link to a ******** social site and get a backlink from that. wouldnt that be quicker?
