I'm looking to hear your strategies for getting to the first page of Google for a new site with a new domain. Specifically for for keywords with under 100,000 competing pages. Do you backlink slowly at first then build up? Do you blast everything you have at it and wait? Is the sandbox inevitable? If so, how patient are you? I know that different things work for different sites, niches etc. I'm not looking for the right answer... just your feedback on methods that have worked for you.
