    Sure why not! really depends on the quality of the backlinks that you build and also the keyword competition.

    i now that you can rank for longtial keywords without any backlinks, but for real keywords i think the number of backlinks really matter not only the quality

    Mostly manual work will give better results, ofcourse you can able to rank sites using manual backlink creation itself.

    I totally agree with all the noters. It all depends on how you plan to put your backlinks. Needless to say it should be on quality site

    Yes it definitely can especially in today's SEO.

    If you can do this manually, you will get result.

    Original Content (For example, if you are an SEO person and you write the type of content seomoz has on their site, it will get picked up so easily whether article marketing, web 2.0, e.t.c)

    High Pr Article directory
    Web 2.0
    Press release
    Blogging
    Doc Sharing
    Manual Blog Comment
    Video marketing
    Private High PR Network.

    Do a link pyramid once a month with 5 web 2.0, 20 popular bookmarking and 100 manual blog comments.
    Just mix them up and be creative..

    of course its possible, and its the best way, because by doing so you are automatically immune to all of googles updates, it simply depends on kw competition, and that will define how much work you ll have to put into it.

    Definitely can. But it definitely takes longer.

    One of my website it took me 5 years to get top 10 for very competitive terms using manual link building.

    It took me 5 months to get top 5 for the same competitive terms using blackhat.

    And now it's took me 4 months (and counting) to lift google penalty :)

    So you need to get the happy medium for rank/time :)

    QUALITY TRUMPS QUANTITY EVERY TIME - 'auto' is almost all about obtaining lots of low quality links.

    If you know what you are doing, getting some HIGH value links is MUCH better. One of my sites easily competes with (in fact hammers) guys with 5-10 times the number of links (and many of my links are from a while back - before I knew what I was doing and didn't have much real success in those early days).

    The problem with 'auto', low value links is that they can often easily be identified as SPAM by an algorithm and also by your competitors - who file a SPAM report with Google.

    'Manual' every time (although many of the guys here operate with 'disposable' domains that can just be dropped when caught - and quickly rank a new one via 'auto', drop it, quickly rank a new one...).

    Why not?

    In the past I built a site with manual backlinks and gain good income, up to $700 a month for adsense alone.

    However, automatic backlink strategy really painless and saves lots of your time.

    Yes, I did it earlier. Only hand made directory links. But it was a non-english websites. I was able to get this sites on the first page on the medium and heavily competitive keywords. Depends on the search competition.

    I used to rank my sites only with manual backlinking on do follow blogs. Some of them spammed to death. But this does not work any more for me with the last google updates. I have to refine my strategy for manual backlinking.
