Hey guys, I have a couple of blogs that I'm just starting to monetize. Nothing very lucrative, just things that interest me and that I know about. I'm still learning how to improve Google rankings. Do they consider your traffic when they decide how to rank you or is it just content and relevance? For example, do you get higher placements if you had lots of visits driven by twitter post links and things like that or is that a waste of time? I'm in low competition keyword territory but I'm not sure the best way to grow it. Also, are there fairly simple ways to handle back linking without just paying someone to do it for you? I don't have much pie to share if you know what I mean. I have time and effort but that's about the only thing I'm looking to invest right now. I'm a content writer so I can easily write myself more fresh articles if that's what I need. Any tips?
