    they say if you want different results, you have to do something different. i have never been able to rank a site, so i thought i do something different - use a little brain cells.

    during the past 2 weeks, i have spent a lot of time writing my own articles for a new site. i mean a lot. i searched and studied, and tried to understand the subject, and i wrote articles. After posting 3 articles, i realized that i already have a site that has ok articles (though not geared "keyward hiararchically") and i still couldnt do shit after 1 year. google webmaster shows my keywords from 40, down to 8. i think google is suspicious about my site. I had 300k links from tumblr and my site is dead in the water. this time around, i also write more organized, significantly longer articles, with images, and outbound links to others. I also have not put in adsense or any money links. i am almost turning whitehat!

    as i try to blackhat again with the new site, i realize i am repeating something that hasnt worked for me - i pin an article, and got 20 repins. then i realized something is wrong: how do i get social signals without any traffic? that doesnt make sense. so i go and buy small traffic. now this is what i think: i buy low-bounce-rate traffic, then get social signals and build backlinks at the same time. the traffic is slow - 100+ visits a day. if google sees that my bounce rate is good, and people like it (the social signal and backlinks), they push my site higher.

    am i heading the right direction? is this going to work? what's the right pace of building backlinks and social signals?

    Free of course is never free... If you are going after FREE then you are paying it with your most valuable asset TIME. If you have time and you know what you are doing then go with it. The outcome will be very slow.

    If you have money then go with PAID option and of course it will bring you faster results and saves TIME.

    So you need to have one... either TIME or MONEY... If you have both it's a +...

    Most paid traffic skyrockets bounce rate, which is horrible.

    You can buy serp traffic but it doesn't have the effect it once did at all.

    Buying traffic for rank is useless. All it will do is get your Adsense killed, if you have it.

    so how do you get backlinks and social signals without traffic? you dont think google looks at that?
    the point i see is not just "buying traffic for rank." i am just trying to make it look reasonable to google. the main thing is nothing has worked for me, and i am trying to do something a little different.

    i've bought plenty of social signals and nothing ever happened.
    how do you get quality backlinks? paying for higher priced backlinks?

    so what do you do now? the one question in my original post was: do i need to, to make it look realistic to google, have traffic before social signals and/or backlinks?

    Just so you know, there's no "right pace" for building backlinks.

    yes, by "right pace," i mean the fastest without getting backfired. after all, the reason of going blackhat is the speed. and i am tired of not being able to buy drinks when i go out...

    How do you think Google algorithms track bots that just go to your site to inflate your traffic reports? At what point do you think Google knows some bot is hitting your site? Think for a minute. How do you think ranking algorithms grab their data? Do you think if I type your domain into my browser that ranking algorithms have any clue about it? Think about how the internets works.

    You need to generate real content with real social signals.
