Not to be spoonfed but I am really confused on this whole Manual back linking thing. I searched around and have even googled and it seems that manual back linking is just placing your site link on 3rd party sites correct? So how exactly do you place your link on those 3rd party sites? So far I can only think of forums and blog comments. Writing up good content and having people link to you is what we strive for but I really don't understand this side of off page Seo. Thank you for reading and have a great 2013.
