So, I am going to lay out exactly what I am doing, and ask that you let me know if what I am doing is correct. As you will see I am taking action, but I want to know that what I am doing is how it should be done. Thank you in Advance. 1. I set up my money site. This the site that I want the backlinks to point to. This site will be called moneysite. The moneysite has 5 pages right now. About 2% kw density and all tags are filled in. I have a site map and google analystics installed. I am pretty sure the site is ready to go. 2. I am building blogs that have to do with my "niche" I have 5 so far. We will call them blog1 - 5. The purpose of these blogs are to provide informatin about the niche and also provide a backlink for the money site. I am also using these blogs to provide backlinks to some videos but that is another subject. 3. I am submitting 1 article per day to Ezine articles. The resource box has my name "not real" and http://moneysite.com. I am using the articles for backlinks. That is about it for now. I also have a list of places that I am going to put backlinks. Here are some questions that I have. 1. When I am putting a backlink on one of my blogs to my money site, should I just put the link to my site - http://moneysite.com or shoud I make it a clickable link with anchor text that are niche related? 2. My blogs are indexed. When I want google to pick up that there is a new backlink on my blog to my money site, do I just ping my blog? Those are the two questions that I have. Also, If I am doing anything wrong or you see room for improvement please let me know. I have read and read and read, and now I am taking action, just asking for a little help to make sure I am going it right. I will also be using this as kind of a journal to keep track of what I am doing. Thanks in advance for all of the help.
