    For manual backlinks (good starting point for some initial authority for a brand new website): https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/foundation-links-list-for-any-seo-project.1185175/

    Just make sure to put some time and effort into these backlinks i.e make sure you add some relevant content and interact with a website to attract internal links pointing to your post/profile/wherever you are putting your link.

    That way your link will carry much more power. If you just go there build backlinks as quickly as possible and move on there you won't get any results.

    Depends on the post really, usually I would recommend a product as a suitable solution to a problem and then provide an affiliate link.

    I started with a fresh domain.

    Yes but not many really I only have a couple and I focus more on guest posts/

    Im SEOing myself ;)

    PM sent to everyone

    We usually suggest to buyers they point to home page and also categories as well as inner pages.

    If you PM me that list of resources, I'll add it to this thread for you. You're not able to hyperlink until you have 50 posts. Cheers.

    Thought the health niche is frowned up these days. How did you find your way around it?

    Makes sense, I actually use them for inner pages as well. However, I barely ever point niche edits directly at money pages (Unless I find a closely related, powerful post which actually just happened to me last week). I sent you PM with resources.

    I don't believe in banner ads, it is all content here (review type pages).

    1 keyword per article and then I usually try to include some closely related topics to get more relevance.

    For some categories I do have very short descriptions but it is a detail really (Unless you are a huge website with tons of categories)

    By niching the heck down and growing from there

    Thanks bro, I will update on the earnings, traffic and overall progress soon.

    Thanks for this thread I've learn some stuff and I'll return to this again for sure.

    My question is how much are you paying your writers and are they professional writers or just students?

    And when you say you use guest posts do you find them yourself or just pay guest post brokers?

    Thanks again.
