Is there really a way to get quality by using black hat techniques? I have been endlessly trying to find ways how to build high quality links and I have yet to find one that really works. I'm now convinced that I will never get any quality links by just spamming using various spamming tools like senuke, linkfarmevolution ... the list is endless. Don't tell me there is currently a new working spamming technique. We both know that even if it works well for a little while, the word is out and sooner rather than later someone will automate it and all of our do****** links will "magically" turn to nofollow for a reason lazy ass spammers refuse to admit to themselves, but we all know what that reason is. I didn't want to sound too harsh or disrespectful - it is a blackhat community after all, but I don't feel I've said anything wrong and I wanted to clear some things up before I continue. As far as quality links are concerned there is only 1 way to get them - using a technique very few are exploiting. That technique has to be either known to very few people or difficult enough to keep off all the lazy spammers (no automation possible). Now, I know nobody is going to give me their money making machine and tell me: "I give this secret to you just because I like you". However, what I hope you will do is sharing some techniques, most of us know, but are not used much because they actually require more work than just typing in a couple of urls and pressing a couple of buttons. Here is my list to begin with: Buying links from quality sites Link exchange with quality sites Making free quality themes with links in the footer Making profiles at quality sites and actually contributing to their community by making posts and also sending linkjuice to your profile. I would like to get your opinions especially on the last method as this is what I think I'm most capable of doing and hopefully you will add some other laborious methods not mentioned here as well so I know what my options are. Thank you.
