    In what order would you list these items in importance for your site to show at the top of the google search results:

    1. Unique articles on your site
    2. Backlinks from high PR sites (one way)
    3. Backlinks from high PR sites (reciprocal)
    4. Backlinks from blog comments
    5. Backlinks from quality articles
    6. Backlinks from spun articles

    I want to know what I should be focusing on first. Writing or paying someone to write content for my site? Writing content to spin just for backlinks? Or search or paying for someone to find me backlinks

    Please give them to me in an order like 1,3,5,6,2 etc... and if you have any others of your own, please include them also.

    So the purpose of the articles? For linking from your site or for just using to get backlinks?

    It really depends on your finances and topic. If its a topic you know intimately and have a passion for you may be better off writing it. But if you have a big enough budget you can find really quality writers. I started out writing my own stuff, but now I find it a huge timesaver and benefit to outsource content. If you need a great guy, PM me.

    ^this.

    Also, unique content on your own sites is basically a pre-requisite and I could see an argument as that being the #1 most important thing.

    ^^ I would add that if you have a well optimized site (outside of unique articles) it will help. I would put that #2 on the above list.
