    How effective would a 100k backlink list be for an etsy shop? I am looking to put this list to use to build traffic and ranking to my shop.

    Since etsy is not a new domain it shouldn't hurt to go all out right? or would it?

    If this is a a good idea can you all send me some other ideas to boost my views?

    100k inbound links? seems way over the natural link profile built even in one month.
    I assume the list consist of shitty unuseful links that will likely to generate 0 traffic.

    Hence, logic suggests that:
    1. you'll probably get punished
    2. nothing will happen (rankings change) and you wont get punished

    Either way, it's too risky. my advice to you: pass. unless, we're talking about real quality links profile.

    if you want to boost traffic and websites views you can always buy traffic from PPC-based platforms. i.e. adwords, fb etc.

    Agree with mrblackjack i would go down the route of adwords unless the mark up is too low to afford that

    Useless.. because those would be links pointing at the domain Etsy.com.. You're better off stuffing your keywords in your titles, descriptions, etc..

    What would be a decent amount of backilinks per month?

    Markup is pretty low, we are looking at an average of $30 and currently only pushed out 1 item lol. Its a new shop, last month starting at 100 total views last month, and now to only 500 total views for the month to date. So Im constantly trying to find new ways to get the traffic in.

    Ive done that and I think it has helped a lot. Can you suggest anything else?

    The amount of backlinks doesn't matter.
    The page rank, OBL, do/no-follow, anchor text, and everything else matters.

    Natural way of link building? there are no numbers but don't expect google to believe you got 100k backlinks in 1 month just like that.
    Backlink means a link another site awards you for helpfull information. Not spamming your site on 100k sites.

    On page SEO is also very important.
