    It’s easy sometimes to complain or to be negative - I’m guilty of it as well. But really you are right - we should all be encouraging each other - beginners and vets alike.

    Good that you are back in the game now.

    Great. How’s your site going? You should start a journey thread for it.

    Thanks for all the comments and feedback guys. Glad that I managed to write something that people like, when normally it’s me gaining info and knowledge from other members here :)

    I don’t benefit at all from promoting any services here :)

    I have used all the services I mentioned though, so they are ones I can happily recommend.

    Hope you enjoy reading and feel free to post back here if you have any questions.

    I am looking for some tips and insight to do SEO for a new site. I have found some interesting sites with high TF (~30-50) for commenting, but they are kinda spammed with comments, so I am not sure if they can still valuable. What do you think? Frank Hatchett also mentioned in some of his recent videos, that he is using blog commenting and forum commenting and is raking decently high for easier keywords. But I am still wondering how to do this properly.

    Well, metrics are important, but the two other key things to think about are a) topical relevance - how relevant are the pages where you are planning to post comment and link? And OBL - if there are loads of other comments and other outbound links then the backlink is not going to be as valuable. So you have to consider all of those things, not just the metrics.

    Hello David,

    Thanks for share. Brilliant results you've got.

    I have a question regarding content. In your experience, how much content do you aim for, for a new website before starting your link building? 20k, 50k or even 100k?
    Would love to hear from you.

    Thanks
