I know I have posted a similar topic before, and the new google update seems to make bank linking quite difficult. I have a tech news site, and 90% of my traffic comes from reddit, I SEVERELY need to change that, I need more steady traffic. I will be submitting myself to google news, but I have to get some more posts, at about 30 now, and this is NOT an autoblogg. Did panda kill blog comment backlinks? it seems like my scrapebox efforts are yielding no backlinks from Alexa. Another thing is, my keywords are awful lol, "Tech news" and stuff like that, but also, I don't really have those keywords ON my page because I have news stories. Right now Google webmaster thinks some of my top keywords are one words from some of the stories. I ranked my last website fairly well, and easily. A news site proves to be much harder.
