OK hi Im posting this thread as a question cuz ima newbie in SEO I have a new website its a micro niche site with easy competition and EMD i have 2X400word articles about the keyword and the niche thats sums up the site. now the important part: i want to rank a this website to be 1st on google for my main keyword. the thing is ,there are so many link bulding methods out there and some of the tactics are old and people saying they aren't working (example is forum posting)but on the other side some people say it does work. it confuses me and puts me in a position where I cant choose a tactic to rank my website. can any 1 help me and suggest a technique that is working for him with micro niche website? maybe a process that includes example ( submitting to XX bookmarking sites,submitting to XX article directories , building EDU profiles ?) i know doing all of this manually can be really tough and takes a lot of time so i got all these great services in BHW that im tempted to use and again! i cant decide where to begin(cuz of low budget) but also cuz I dont want to do anything wrong and get my site off google's index.. Im hoping to get helpful responses and up to date tactics or techniques .. Thanks in advance for every person trying to help.
