    After blacking my little black heart out I want to reinforce it with some white hat article posting on web2.0's and similar blog/article sites. I'm gonna just go on each one and write my own unique content...

    So what sites are hot these days for people willing to go 100% manual? Any gems that the automated software isn't spamming to death?

    At my job we use wordpress a lot.. Just try not to get too many on the same email and don't make too many too fast and they won't get banned.. I put links on them from day one and then you can always reinforce them with some grey hat automated stuff :)

    Even manually building web 2.0's isnt exactly "white-hat". That being said, Webs.com and Squiddo are my two personal favorites, they tend to rank very well without many links. We manually build them all the time.

    We also register new domains and write tons of unique content. When those sites rank well, we'll post links to them and add them to our internal network. Building an internal network is far more effective that web 2.0's.

    If you are truly looking for white-hat, guest posting is the way to go.

    This is more or less our strategy.

    Web 2.0 links are not going to rank you for moderate or competitive keywords, why? Because they don't have any decent links pointing to them, this makes them supplemental links.

    You could build more crap links to your crap links and to your crap links again which may look good, but is just a waste of time or money.

    A decent link should at least have a little actual pagerank, this would assure you that it remains in googles index. A page with pagerank is also an indication that it has some authority.

    Web 2.0s are far from white hat. They used to be maybe, but blog comments also used to be white hat way back when.

    That isn't a horrible idea. I could even put ad's on them and maybe make a little money... is it OK to put ad's on those kind of sites I'm gonna use for backlinks BTW?

    Where/how do you host the sites that you create, I have been wanting to do this for some time but i have heard so much conflicting info on seo hosting etc and it would cost too much money to host a lot of sites with seperate host companies.

    How do you do it....thanks

    You could theoretically use any host. You don't want it to look like SEO in google's eyes so just use a normal non-BH host I'm guessing. The biggest problem will be spending the monthly $$$.
