    I've been researching link building the past 2 days because my one month of IM experience ends after on page seo.

    It seems like theres 3 common methods:


    • Private PR Blog
    • Buying Link Packages
    • Grinding Backlinks Manually (blog comments, web 2.0, social signals, tiered link building, article submissions, etc)


    The last option seems like so much effort to me. Blog comments alone could take hours and hours. Plus the returns on any of the bracketed topics arent even as effective as they were 2 years ago.

    I honestly cant believe in this day and age people are manually doing tiered link building and/or blog comments anymore. (to the ones that dont hire VA's) I feel like I could do this for hours and still wouldn't rank for sh1t.

    Since article directories and web 2.0 are pretty much ineffective now it seems. I dont wanna dick around hoping 1/5 blog makers will allow my anchor text on their crappy blog only to have inneffective for ranking links.

    So I guess my question is what are people doing to rank? I'm willing to put in the work but it seems like everything is less effective.

    I am also wondering if the Sherlock Hacks Google Package sold here is worth it and is still effective as of today? I made a brand new 10 page site to monetize with adsense and some affiliate links. Proper keyword research was done, on page seo, etc. But obviously SOME link building must be done here.

    Will buying the basic sherlock package be effective or will it send hundreds of ineffective links to my site and raise a google flag?

    THanks

    Could you tell me what GSA + CB is? Just a brief description, I have googled it but im not really grasping what it is

    Also How do I "learn how SEO works"? I thought thats what Ive been doing. Is this just down to more and more reading of SEO guys blogs?

    Ive been reading for like 15 hours the past 2 days. Theres just so much shit.
