    I'm planning on starting a website in a niche I found,

    Fairly easy to rank. BUT I don't know how to rank it exactly, and I thought I could do either article link building or a link wheel.

    Do article links still work?
    And while I'm on this thread, can I do link wheels on subdomains or is that a no-no?

    You will be better off creating some manual HQ Web 2.0-s than pointing some useless article directory links at your money site.

    Ah. Thanks.

    But what exactly do you mean by HQ? I'm still a noob :( :( :(

    Imagine a blog that you find where you actually read a couple of articles and learn someone, possibility you even bookmark it for reading more later. It doesn't look like a spam blog, it looks and reads like someone who knows about this industry. This is HQ.

    Yeah exactly. By HQ Web 2.0, I mean a blog which doesn't just have 1 post with a link back to your site. The blog has between 2-8 articles, is updated every once in a while (once per 1-2 months is plenty), looks legit on first look, the articles are relevant to the niche, has the usual pages such as contact us, about us, privacy policy, etc... Look up here on BHW and you will find lots of tutorials how to create such blogs. Also the "filler" content posted does NOT have to be groundbreaking or engaging - just readable enough so it can pass manual moderation (prevents your blog from getting deleted) and 90%+ unique. As for the article which holds your link, it's a different story.

    And, may I add, absolutely no spun articles too.
    Also consider investing in good writers who've done this before. Some writers just can't be bothered to write something convincingly. They just want to churn out the same banal articles day in and out :/

    So what is the best road-map to get ranks in a couple of months for instance?

    Works if done right. Quality and relevance have taken much more weightage than it used to.
    For e.g. Ezine was a goldmine but I don't think it is still the same. Instead you can try guest posts on authority blogs relevant to your niche.

    Dont just limit yourself to article directory links.

    Create a good link profile by getting a mix of article, web.20, blog comments, guest posts etc.

    New sites take time to rank these days, so dont quit after days and you will surely reach your goal.
