    Hi,
    I am a freelance webdesigner and do basic SEO, A new client has recentlly phoned me wanting to increase the inbound links on there site. at the moment they have 1,068 inlinks to there and a pr 2 rating. The client knows about lots of different link building methods like link farming and but is very wary of them.

    I have no experience in link building but would like to help build them links. what would be the best method. They need links relivent, and links that are going to stick and not just last a few weeks.

    Well if you don't have as much experience with link building you might want to stay away from it yourself. Hire a freelancer for a small fee, and take the credit from your employer. Unless you are manually going to get the back links, that's what I suggest you do.

    I understand, things are different when you are working for someone else. However, I know there are people who will do whitehat link building for you if you wanted it. Just be careful if you decide to do the links yourself. You could end up doing more harm then good.

    Like you said, you don't have experience with link building, how are you going to tell your client what steps you need to take. I suggest a refund.

    I would hire someone to research the keywords properly for you on Fiverr, then use Linkpushing.net to target those keywords. Simple and effective! Also, pretty much whitehat.

    I would buy some pyramid servcies and just charge the client 5x whatever you pay.

    Thanks for the advise guys, Will defiantly outsource most of this. Will Linkpushing.net increase the pr rating on the site. will there be a noticeable difference on inbound links. If I buy a one mounth pakage will this stay the same or will it drop. How do I go about charging the client if It needs to be done every month.

    just seems like you have no clue - so best you just go find something else to do.

    Linkpushing steals someone else's article spins it and posts it over the web via multiple sources .. then hits it with some scrapebox links

    so telling your client that is a good idea - is like shooting yourself in the head.

    either do it manually so you control it - or go back to what I originally said - go find something else to do.

    I was just explaining to epexlinux that Skype doesn't work on my computer, it is an unknown issue that I can not figure out.

    If your not a client or a potential client I am still open to talking but have to put you on low priority. GChat is my preferred way of communication, send me your gmail and ill add you.

    Get Senuke and use the vitavee/enzo methods:
    Social networks:
    -Create accounts
    -Publish readable content pointing to your website. Drip feed it out and publish new content on a regular basis.
    -Promote those social network links by linking to them with social bookmarks, articles, scrapebox, etc...
    -publish some articles to article directories and treat them as you would your tier 1 social network

    Result:
    -links from different social network sites pointing to your client. The more that you link to the social network sites, the more authority they will build. Sooner or later, they'll get PR also.

    NOTE:
    -don't create garbage content and publish that linking directly to your site if it's a client site. That means no using that stupid built in content creator that senuke has.
    -don't use mass linking services directly to the client site. use those on your tier 1. I do it to my own sites, but would never do it to a client site.

    You could also think about using high quality blog networks to link to your client's site. Pay an English writer or someone who can write well enough to sound English to write yous some articles. Spin them on a sentence level. Publish those using something like AMR or senuke. Drip feed them - don't publish them all at once.


    Hope that gives you something to start with.

    If you really want to go white hat you'll need editorial links, which you'll have to get creative for. After some success, the results will last more or less forever though.

    Looks like I need a few more posts before I can PM. :rolleyes: I understand the client priority. With you there all the way man.

    Oh well. Bookmarking this thread, will continue to watch it. Longover has some good feedback.

    The most confusing thing for anyone just starting out is sifting through all of the counter-info and figuring out which of the many ideas to implement. This is especially true after the Panda update. I've found myself checking and re-checking all of the more popular, easily outsourced strategies that we've all used in the past. Over the past couple of weeks, I've come across so many opinions and "evidence" contradicting each other, it's hard to figure out what to believe.
    Interesting note on that front: I just checked on a customer from a year ago whom I hit w/ 200+ forumn links alone + a few articles in a proprietary article directory. Now, Yahoo shows 38 links still, but more importantly, the customer is still ranking #6. Panda seems not to have effected him much, if at all.

    And finally to all new SEO peeps: You will find lots, and lots, and lots of anecdotal evidence on this site, WF, blogs, etc. Remember, it's all anecdotal. Hell, even the pros make mistakes sometimes (see: Rand Fishkin on not using site maps and later retracting his statement). Test on a few private domains, document everything you do to the best of your extent, and then tweak and test some more BEFORE talking to a customer as an authority. Believe me, I've made that mistake early on in my career.

    Gotta start somewhere, it's not really hard stuff just takes lots of work if you want to do it in the spirit of white hat.

    Make/write web 2.0 blogs/sites linking to your clients site and other authority sites in the niche, link to these web2.0 sites with articles you've written, these could be a lil worse quality. Write top-quality articles post them on the better article sites linking directly to client site. On web 2.0 you can write blog posts about youtube videos that are relevant, or other bits of content that's out there, talk about news items or whatever. Social bookmark all of that stuff. Make accounts if you need to and post links on twitter/facebook.

    I don't think there would be anything wrong with this kind of linking it's all really safe stuff as far as I've experienced. It takes work though ...
