Hello, I launched a new site one month ago and it has only a few backlinks : 30-40 from bookmarking, 1-2 from blogs and 1 from a PR4 site (but unrelated)... It is a total WHITEHAT site. I've read some ebooks given in the download section, I've seen that I should create my site in order to make him a link magnet, however it's a business site and I don't think someone will link to my site unless I do something for him... So here is what I have planned to do : (1) submission to the top 40-50 directories (DMOZ...) Question : Should I also submit to other directories or is it useless ? (2) submission of 10-15 press releases each month Question : Is it useful ? (3) creation of linkwheels Question : Is that good for the (long-term) rankings of a whitehat site ? How many should I create ? (4) contact of bloggers to create diverse articles (not an advertisement for my site) for them on their blog = they have new articles - I insert backlinks in the article Question : If you have ever tried this, can you tell my your experience ? Another question : Apart from these, are there other ways to have a better rank ? Sorry for my bad English and thanks for your answers.
