Hey guys. How people's SEO tactics over the long term play out tend to overlap, but right at the start is where things tend to be unique from person to person. I think it'd be a good exercise (and good input for those new to the game) to decribe how YOU personally get a brand new wordpress blog from 0 to 30 uniques/day. Things we'll assume: 1) There are already 10 articles of content, and it will be updated at least bi-weekly 2) Only the most barebones, basic plugins have been installed (akismet, all-in-one SEO) What do you do, and in what order? Me personally: First thing I'd do to build some decent backlinks and get an immediate flow of traffic is rewrite all 10 currently posted articles, and send them to: EZA Articlesbase Articledashboard GoArticles The rest, in my experience personally, offer greatly diminished terms as far as clickthroughs are concerned. Immediately after I'd register a few blogger blogs featuring some re-writes, and point social bookmarks at those. These blogs would link to deep pages as well as top level every now and then. I'd create several web 2.0 properties, suge as a hub page or squidoo lens, to point at the article rewrites on EZA once they (finally) get approved. Each of these hubs/lenses would have social bookmarks pointing at them as well. That's about it. In summary I submit hand re-written articles for immediate traffic, then create something pseudo linkwheelish pointing to both the EZA articles as well as deeplinks and top level of my original blog.
