Ok, I'm a beginner when it comes to IM and I honestly am not sure what I am doing. I thought it would be ok to just buy a bunch of backlinks and facebook likes and I would be made, turns out that was not the case. (Obviously). What I don't understand is a good way to increase the rank of my site in google. People mention 'money pages' and 'pr[1-8] blogs' all the time but its about as understandable as a foreign language to me. I could google it or get the guys who know exactly what to say to help me out. Couple questions: Whats the best type of backlinks? And/or Articles? Should I worry about blackhat to much? Whats the best whitehat method? (Want the site to last) How does it all really work? Thanks to anyone who can help out! I'll pay you back some day!
