Apologies if these questions have already been answered, I don't really know the terms to search for and most of the time half the words in my phrase is omitted from the search. Hi guys, beginner SEO'er here. I've been building my first micro niche website and the building is going well. I think everything is pretty good so far except for one big thing: building links! Basically, what I have been doing is picking up link lists from BHW and popping it into a automatic blog commenter(among other things of course). It's been going fine using the bot, and the links are appearing on the page, but when I use some kind of backlink checker (ex:backlinkwatch.com) for my website, I get 1 backlink and the rest don't even show up. I've manually commented on edu blogs, used some of the 30+ backlink submitters here on BHW, and used an automatic blog commenter with the AA lists provided. I even went on a gig site and bought a scrapebox blast for 10,000 backlinks. I have pinged most of the links also, the backlink submitters have also pinged for me. Why don't the backlinks show up? Should I have more patience? If I should, how long should i wait till the backlinks actually show up? If I start building links again, does anyone wanna give me tips on how to make links actually stay on? If any trusted member wants to take a look at my website they can. PM me to see if anythings wrong with my website. I may be a beginner but I still have some common sense. I'm using a .info domain. I hope that isn't the problem. Don't ask why I did it, I felt like it. TLDR:I build links using lots of methods but they don't show up. What's the deal? P.S Thanks for all your help guys. I just thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and not clog up BHW and ask if I were to buy a fiverr gig that would have links actually stick to my website, that would help me rank better, what would it be? I have enough money for a fiverr gig and would like suggestions on link pyramids,blasts,etc!
