    I am looking to make 1 large site, it will be a large Review site.

    Probably around 200 Articles this summer or more by September.

    I want to rank it whitehat, do you guys think paying someone to do this is a good idea?

    Bit of an open question isn't it? How much is the site likely to generate in revenue? How much are you prepared to spend to generate that revenue?

    You don't really need alot of backlinks to rank with 200 articles. If you drip feed them and do a solid backlink a day, you'll get a ton of long tail traffic you can monetize. Then eventually as you build more links and drip feed more articles you'll start ranking for hard keywords.

    I remember ranking a website with just content. I didn't use any backlinks, but we were just posting short 200 word articles (about 2-3) a day.

    The thing about whitehat SEO is it's more about on page optimization than offpage. Offpage is super simple where you can just do guest posting and you don't have to worry about building any more links. The social media links, etc. will come eventually from the guest posts.

    On-page SEO optimization

    - page speed optimization
    - content optimization - using proper headers/titles, having a low keyword density (you shouldn't worry about keyword density. If you write the article by hand/spin it manually you shouldn't have to worry). Checking the entire site for duplicate headers/words/etc. proper image tags.
    - general website optimization - checking for dead links. Checking google webmasters and fixing dead pages/redirects.
    etc...

    For big websites, I personally built scripts to spider the entire site and check for on-page stuff like this.

    Off-page SEO:

    I used Gscraper to find guest post locations and I sent out emails to the owners for a guest post/article mention. I tried using GSA, but it never showed any positive effects on boosting the guest posts. It was wasted resources.

    There's alot more on-page optimization that affects your SEO rankings and for the site you shouldn't worry about offpage as much because you'll have alot of content for Google to index.

    Depends on the quality of the seo. If done right, yes it could be worth every penny. But with that many articles u should have no prob getting on site ranking when ur articles get indexed.

    doing SEO on 200+ pages will cost a lot of money.

    If your bank account can handle it then go for it.

    Definitely not at the beginning. If you want to get this site off the ground, the initial white hat SEO should be done by yourself IMO.

    Yea I agree, just trying to figure out how to do that. I want to focus on creating a lot of content and fixing up the site nicely, paying for nice web development/design etc.. I want to create a proper authority website. I will not have adverts or anything. Will be monetized through amazon and ecommerce.

    If you have idea on white hat SEO, then do by yourself. Initially start with onpage and then follow a well defined offpage SEO. Build some good quality backlinks, focus on right targeted keywords. It will be a slow process, yet can fetch you the expected results. But if you don't know much about SEO solutions, better to hire a well experienced professional team.

    Yes it will be a good idea if you are looking to start with SEO.SEO is not a one night game that will rank your 1[SUP]st[/SUP] page of Google. It requires patience and consistency. SEO is emerged as an important part of marketing. Through a combination of keyword research, on-site and off-site optimization, and competitor analysis, it is possible to make it easier for search engines to find your webpage and rank it higher for certain relevant key search terms. Running a full SEO campaign can be a daunting task to handle alone; fortunately SEO experts can only help you.

    A good idea but you will have to monitor very closely.

    SEO should be done carefully, as on the market there are a lot of people who pretend to offer white hat SEO, but actually are doing churn and burn.
