So I got out of the SEO game for a while and I'm looking to get back in for a few micro niche sites that I have. Most are on the 2nd or 3rd page with low to medium competition, with only a handful of backlinks each. I want to get back to the basics and start an SEO campaign and do everything by hand. If that means creating 5 web 2.0 properties a day and 20 blog comments to each one then so be it, I'm just not sure that's right. The SEO game constantly changes which is why I'm here asking what works nowadays. I'm not asking for a specific plan (but if you would like to give me one I won't complain ) I'm just looking for an outline of what works nowadays, by hand. Obviously, creating 1000 articles a day by hand won't work (and I'm sure it won't work for SEO anyways). If I get a good plan going and start ranking these sites by hand then I will surely write a how-to and experience thread and on the results. Thanks!
