    There is an opinion that you should build your links constantly and don`t skip days. My question is: why can`t you just build 40 backlinks every 3-4 days and don`t ping them - google will crawl it slowly and it will look normal and natural. Isn`t it true?

    I think the issue becomes does the addition of new links look bursty rather than organic, that is, is there a sudden explosion of new links every so often?

    That siad I think too much is made of this. I can't imagine an algorithm that can distinguish between a site that is going viral versus one with backlinks that are manufactured, other than of course the quality of the links.

    I have reason to believe that taking time off from link building is good for your site. why? well linkbuilding causes dancing, so if you keep linkbuilding, youll keep dancing, and never quite settle in to a position. for that reason Ill go hard for a week or so, then cool off. i also allow everything to be found naturally (no pinging).

    link velocity is important. Continue adding links.

    There's no such thing as a natural link profile. When the media picks something up you might get thousands of natural links overnight then almost nothing for a while.

    Just like content though, IMO it's good to keep building links. New links / content show that there is immediate interest in your site and it should help.

    Af course you can stop doing links for some days, for instance you can add blog comments and ggogle spend some times to arribe there.Is normal you get some links one day and nothing the next,seems natural.
    The problem is when you usualli index hundredes of links one day and nothing for a week...and then other hundreds...thats easily show that your are making those links.
    The best strategy is do all your links the day you could and automatize the system to index some of them every day
