    Can I post my link on articles which are page 1 for my Keyword?

    I've seen some link building pyramids about link building and someone even said you should just point to your homepage from one external homepage? Confusing :(

    I don't want to mess this step up that's why I ask for help. I don't know if i should post and comment on those articles

    The first 8 results are subdomains - articels somewhat related to my niche because some keywords are in the text.

    Can I post a comment saying few things about the article and then post my E-MD in order to get an backlink? Will that mess-up my link pyramid?

    Don't become too concerned with the details. Leave genuine comments that add value to the site whenever you can, and if it makes sense leave an anchor text link back to your site. If it doesn't make sense in the context, be sure to put your website in the URL field so at least your name becomes anchor text as opposed to plain text. The vast majority of what you read online regarding SEO is people's opinions - some people who are in a niche that gets 5 searches a month and others who are in niches with 100k+ searches a month; and people generally just post what worked for them in the past and it may be entirely irrelevant for your particular situation.

    I don't like sites like SEOMoz etc. that preach "quality content!" or "high quality links!" but in terms of white hat SEO that's all you can do. Build links where it makes sense, imagine you're a 45 year old woman running a recipe blog and don't know the first thing about SEO but do know that you want to drive visitors to your site... Anyway my point is as long as your website is setup with quality content that engages your visitors, you shouldn't get too caught up in "the perfect link structure."

    I'd agree. Anyone half way sentient can tell the difference between link-spamming in the comments and leaving a relevant, genuine comment that contains a link either in the body or under your name. There are definite benefits to doing the latter. Keeping it natural is definitely a big part of it so just write the kind of stuff you think someone like you would want to read and you can't go too far wrong from there.
