So I was wondering if the majority of people who are getting the best results in the SERPS are doing the majority of SEO themselves or are they doing a little themselves - on site type stuff - and then outsourcing mass link building etc etc to others? I was thinking that it's probably better to do a little of both because you really can't get the same effect if you're the only one doing it. The time it would take you to build backlinks in excess by yourself would far surpass what you could achieve by using the help of 2 or 3 companies/people at the same time.. or would I be wrong? My plan - when I get my new site up and running - is to do some article marketing myself and at the same time outsource mass backlink generation and some Xrumer stuff to other people. That way I'm getting twice as much done! However I'm going to be the one in charge of the research - my outsourcing will merely be giving people work that I've already set out - not just some kind of 'here's some money please help me rank' type deal! What do you find works? Thanks in Advance?
