I am not a wealthy person. I have a site from where I earn about $80 a month. Lots of my keywords stuck at page 2 of google. I have not created any backlink for my site, all are natural.

I hardly managed to save $300. I want to use it for the benefits of the site. Should I buy six $50 worth backlink for 6 of my keywords which are ranked in 2nd page or should I create multiple backlink for 1 or 2 of my high volume keywords which are ranked in 10th position or 2nd page.

Thanks in advance, you guys are amazing.

check your GSC for articles that are on page 2 of google and if there are any such articles (well, URLs) build 1-2 internal links to those articles from pages that rank well and which are relevant to the content of the destination URLs, but make sure that everything is relevant, like I said (the content of both the source and destination URL, as well as the anchor text, which means that you need to insert that anchor text where it makes most sense for potential visitors to click on it).

If this trick doesn't propel the articles that rank on google's 2nd page, to page 1 after 1-2 weeks then you need to start building links... external links I mean :)

Given your low budget I would go for 2-3 quality guest posts (with exact match anchors) from relevant sites in your niche, that have decent organic traffic (few 100s visitors a month at least). If you can't find such opportunities then at least get some profile links from authority sites (issuu, adobe, soundcloud, etc) and point them to the homepage of your domain to strengthen its authority, but don't expect any ranking improvement from these links as they're not very powerful. They are safe, yes, and they will raise your domain's authority and trust by a little bit, but most of these links won't pack a punch in the SERPs, so keep this in mind!

I just posted earlier today:

As you can see in that post, I have NO IDEA whether any of these links are still live, d-ofollow (by the way, you want mostly d0f-ollow links mostly, so hunt for those whenever possible as they are the only ones that help with building authority and increase rankings directly), or if they even exist anymore as backlinking opportunities, so you'll have to do your own due diligence on them, but if you take the time to go through all of those threads I'm 100% positive that you can still find a few golden nuggets.

Just beware not to post all sorts of shady / spammy links directly to your money site as this might actually hurt your rankings. Also beware not to use too many keyword rich anchors as this will trigger another google penalty that can derank your site. Keep most of your anchors as branded anchors, generic ones (click here, visit us today, more on our site, this page, etc.), or naked URLs, and only use 2-3% of your total anchor texts as exact match keywords (ie. keywords that you want to rank for, or which you're already ranking for but want to boost in the SERPs)

As for which pages / URLs to point the backlinks to, that's up to you. If you have 10-20 good links point 50-70% of them to your homepage to strengthen the domain's overall authority (which in turn will boost the rankings of any future articles you might post, or it might help some of the long tail keywords in your articles get some rankings of their own because of your domain's good authority), and point the other 30-50% of your backlinks to the inner pages / content pages that you wish to rank, or that are already ranking but you wish to boost their rankings of (but again, beware not to abuse the anchor texts as they are being checked by google on a page by page basis)

And if you can't find / don't have at least 10-20 quality links to use... well... just point all that you have at the inner pages to at least rank / boost those ones, and don't worry about strengthening your domain's authority until when you have enough money to afford strong links

I would conduct an SEO audit before doing anything else.

I don´t know the state of your site´s SEO "health" so you might be missing opportunities to improve its organic visibility, organic traffic, conversions and, therefore, revenue.
