Ive been working and learning Web design and SEO for about 3 months now and it feels like i am late to the party. Iv learned quite alot from what iv read on the forum here, but it seems all this info iv gathered is hard to tell if it useful or not. I have read alot on the forums on Backlinks and it seems people are very vague on how to get back links. My questions 1.Is there a ratio of pagerank vs amount of backlinks - meaning does 100 PR1 backlinks have the same value as 10 PR2 Backlinks. 2.What type of backlinks are most fruitful? Ive heard many theories on guest blogging,press releases,blog commenting,referrals. 3.How many backlinks can you have from one site before it hurts you? 4.My final question , When seeking out a site for a backlinks, what are some factors come into play while looking? I understand why people withhold certain info to protect their profit but i cant seem to find info on things that are very needed. Also im sorry for asking so many questions at once.I hope this wasn't too long!
