    Ok so i'm relatively new to IM, in terms of actually taking action (i've been a "casual observer" for a good few years), and i thought i should get some advice from you lovely, helpful folks because everytime i think i find an answer, i read something else that contradicts it.

    Obvious solution?.... stop spending so much time on the forum, i know, but i just can't help it, it's too damn addictive!

    So i have currently got a 2 week old website up and running with about 15 articles all handwritten by me. My main focus currently is to just create high quality content and start getting some traffic before i think about doing anything else like monetization. Although the ultimate plan is to get to at least 100 articles and utilize adsense, and then maybe throw in a few affiliate links here and there, wherever they are relevant and add value to the content. Most of my articles are already indexed at this point and i thought it might be time to begin some offsite SEO.

    The thing is, i know it's important to start slowly and make things look as natural as possible. Therefore throwing some SUPERCHARGED ULTIMATE RANK DOMINATOR (or what they are called) backlinks at them probably isn't going to go down well, and i'm actually finding it hard to find any services that do some nice and gentle backlinking. From what i've read and understood so far, i am inclined to get some social bookmarks or social signals to begin with. Is this a good idea? Or else what would be a good way to start? And also whats a good SEO strategy, if i'm going to be dealing with potentially 100s of pages?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Making a quality and fresh content is a good idea. Share it via social media and make good alerts with your main keywords in order to let people know about your site. Do natural backlinks. Try guest blogging and blog commenting. Don't think social bookmarking is still effective. I stopped doing that method a long time ago.

    I have a good fresh daily content, but not quite sure how to use drip-linking etc?

    If you are putting real work into your website then put some real work into guest posting. Don't risk it with 1337 INSTARANK PRIVATE NETWORK links.

    Content creation is good idea, But with contents it's also very necessary to generate traffic to view them, You should do some guest posts, press release submission, Blog comments to your link and by those techniques you can generate the traffic.

    Make sure that you add these to your 'natural looking' backlink strategy: aged website directories (free and paid), a forum post here and there, some niche related blog comments.

    I did a test a while ago with one of my websites, creating only what I said above and nothing more - stopped after. I tried to create a slow start linking structure and I have to say that the two or three forum posts and blog comments that I've made 6-8 months ago, are still there. They were relevant to the domain/page authority (which is somewhere at 15 or 20 if I recall).

    For a new site you need to concentrate on high quality content, social signals and web 2.0 do-follow links.

    Thanks for all the advice guys.
    I'm going to begin with some social signals and blog commenting to begin with based on what people have said. I'm mainly targeting long tail keywords with low competition at the moment so i probably don't need anything too serious just yet.

    I think you just need a little bit of "everything" that's the point if you want look natural, and it's better to do it by yourself, that's why IM start to be very complicated for someone like me to start. Because you have to use a lot of differents things if you want to rank properly, so i would say, focus on something worth and rewarding :D
