    Actually It Helped a lot , Thank U , And I guess I was right after all. I can create Web 2.0 Profiles and always brand my name. Google doesn't care if u are Branding urself as long as u are not using crappy content to do it. If ur link comes from useful content they don't give a shit who wrote it :)

    Guess what, this can never come at a better time than this when I am going to take on such a challenge for one of my client :)

    I totally agree with this and I follow the exact same system.

    I have created an excel sheet with all of my 12 competitors backlinsk from SEOMoz, Majestic SEO, ahrefs and I know what their focus area is and I have everything lined up whenever I will start my link building campaign.

    It is very true that G doesn't hurt the big sites that buy links because the percentage of those bought links might be very less in comparison to their natural links as such sites get links from high authority sites (mostly). Atleast this is what in my case.

    With recent G update 3.3, it is important to have a good link diversity, link velocity and proper onsite SEO to stand with a chance to rank for competitive keywords.

    Also, I would like to mention that you need to vary your anchor text and mix it with naked URLs to make it look natural. This is what has worked for me when I ranked a site at no.7 for 'second hand cars' without much help from onsite (as it was flash and client was not listening to my onsite recommendations..I hate such clients !!)

    This was a damn good post. People make SEO harder than it needs to be. See what your competition is doing to rank. Do that and then do more.
