    sweet - thanks for sharing this dude. wanna elaborate on how you're doing your manual link building? PBN's i'm assuming? Web 2.0? Either way good job dude.

    I dont see the difference in you manually building the links and you buying the same links you manually build.

    You just have to find the right sellers.

    No PBNS, Web 2.0s,submissions, forums, etc.

    1. Pick a niche
    2. See what links are pointing to the AUTHORITY sites in that niche
    3. Get dem links

    I'm also going for easy submission so I don't spend a ton of time on a single link.

    Sure, I like to know what I'm paying for though. One competitor I have on a different niche/site is outranking me, so i checked his backlinks. One of them linked me back to a fiverr seller - beating my BHW packages. Further disillusionment.

    I won't really know the value of a link until I build them manually.

    Your doing it manually that called white hat.

    Blackhat you use bots/tools to get links to get you fast results.

    For example ,if you buy a app called scrapebox ,you can find all you competition backlinks, and find all the good links and register them to your website and then add more to beat your competition.

    Doing all that manually just takes ages why many go blackhat and use bots/tools

    Good luck

    Well, I'm at a point now where I

    1. Know not to spend too much on a link
    2. Am Currently testing out what sort of links WORK

    After that, I'll be able to go back BlackHat and know exactly where to spend my money.

    Good idea mate, I am always wondering the same thing as well.
    Will follow your case studies, btw, is it possible for you to share some info? As in keyword difficulty and what manual links are you building?

    Good idea

    KD is 35+, type of links varies depending on authority sites in the niche.

    Total newb here, just made an account, but what is AUTHORITY sites in your niche? I don't mind doing it manually as AHREFS said i'd only need about 1-10 backlinks to rank in the top for the keywords i have targeted.

    What does it mean to link your website to the AUTHORITY sites?

    Thanks
