Hello All, I have a quick question to ask you more experienced White hatters in the forum. Well, a couple of questions. Here is the scenario: I am launching a brand white hat website and would like to start off on the right foot. This website is a blog and it uses the Wordpress CMS. I am completely willing to pay for some placement in the more popular link directories, and have approximately 20 unique articles to distribute for the purpose of building backlinks. So here are the questions: 1. Which free/paid directories do you recommend? Is high quantity better on the free directories? OR should I just stick to the high quality PR 4 + free link directories. As for paid directories, the budget is around 200 - 300 dollars and I would like to get as many solid links from this cash as possible. (I am open for other recommendations as well) 2. Article Distribution - At what interval would you suggest submitting the articles for natural link building. (assuming 20 articles) I plan on using Isnare.com for my main distribution vehicle, but I would like them to be included in some higher ranking article sites as well. I plan on submitting them manually to these higher ranking article directories and then submit using Isnare. Should this be switched around? I also have a copy of Article Post Robot which I plan on using after the article has been submitted to these primary directories. This will distribute each article to 400 or so more directories. (any suggestions here?) 3. Blog Specific SEO practices - are there any solid methods to use for blog specific link building that are not included above? Any help with these questions would be much appreciated.
