    It depends how old the blog is.

    Outsourcing will probably be your cheapest option. Fiverr has some good deals.

    The blog is not old, probably around 2months. The actual domain name is about 6 months old.

    Had around 5500 unique visitors in the first month, because of an interesting article which went viral and just got a lot of hits within the first few days. I'm more of an ebay guy, so just getting started with this whole online marketing.

    What's the best way to do it, without outsourcing, do I just research related blogs and leave authentic comments? or are there other ways.

    Let me know.

    Thanks a lot.

    You could do that - That may provide for some targeted traffic as well. If you are trying to build tons of backlinks though (and if you dont want to outsource) then you will need to buy a backlinking program. There are many different kinds, depending on what kinds of links you want. You may want to try AMR or Scrapebox to start. If you are really new to the game, you may just want to outsource. Using these tools improperly can hurt your rankings as opposed to helping them

    What's the best way to create quality back links, because creating thousands of poor ones, apparently does not ensure you rank highly. Also What is the deal with trying to rank high for different types of keywords? I do not understand this method. Also how do I find out where keywords are ranked? Sorry for these nooby questions, I was more of an ebay guy before this.

    Thanks.

    No problem, I've been there before. I think you should do a lot more research on SEO before you try to start backlinking. Like i said, if it is done imporperly, it can be harmful.

    Everything you are asking about is a huge part of SEO so i cant really sum it up in one post, but things you want to look up are:

    "keyword research" - finding a low competition keyword, optimizing your site for that keyword, then using that keyword in the anchor text of your backlinks

    "backlinks" - there are tons of different kinds (web 2.0s, forums, social bookmarks, etc.). quality over quantity here. building links too fast can result in having your site sandboxed by google.

    Good luck in your research!

    Good luck
