    Would like some opinions from the guru's.

    How many links is "too many" in say a week or month period? I know those are two different time frames, but it's hard to go week to week as some weeks I don't have resources and others I'm in overdrive.

    NOTE: I learned the hard way building 1,000's of links in a very short time to one site, and a year later I'm still trying to get it to rank where it should.

    Let's also assume the site's been up for over a year and has a decent link profile. Not talking about "new sites" in this question, just established sites that have had continued link efforts but never really ramped up.

    My tactics are very white hat for this question. Let's assume I build links by manual PR commenting, Press Releases, and a few paid links from similar content sites. Toss in a few articles too.

    My basic question is, how many links is too many? I have people to build these, but don't want to overdo it.
