    Hi guys,

    I´m new here and I´m now in SEO since 4-5 months... Just started building "seerious" backlinks to my homepage since 1 week. (With Angela´s and Pauls backlinks and some methods to find some good ******** high PR blogs. I know it´s not the best method to build backlinks)

    Now my question is, will this time intensive backlink building bring me something? Or do you guys think that g**gle will change their system completely and those backlinking is no good way for the future?

    I don´t wan´t to invest daily some time and then g**gle changes their system in 5 months and it was a big waste of time...

    The reason for the search engines to stop giving attention to backlinks are those backlink packages from Angela and paul... That´s crap that they don´t stop their sales... I´m sure ten thousands of people already use those methods and backlinks from them. Them both makes crazy money but they ruin the SEO market with their method too I think...

    I´m sure g**gle already knows about them...

    What do you guys think?

    By the way, sorry for my english

    "Or do you guys think that g**gle will change their system completely and those backlinking is no good way for the future? "

    I've thought about that very question. But in the end, how else is G going to figure out what sites people find valuable? I believe that G will devalue different types of backlinks, like directories and social bookmarking sites (pligg, scuttle) but they will still have some value because G doesn't know which ones are done by spammers. And there will be a continual supply of new platforms rolling out in the future for putting your links on that G isn't ready for.

    I think G knows about all the backlinking programs out there, the real question is, does G care? If enough obvious junk websites start showing up at #1 in G and in turn ruin the high quality of G's search engine, they are going to take a look and see what is going on. I don't think the number of people using Angela and Paul's service is enough to be noticed or cared about. The last I read, G had over 3 BILLION pages indexed, it is easy to hide in a crowd that big.

    Just be slow and steady in your backlinking (don't go from no links to 100's in a few weeks or you might just catch big G's eye) until you get a few hundred backlinks, then speed up the process. All your backlinks will count for something - so just be sure to get them from different sources.

    This is very well put togther(better then i can do)


    Well if you really think about it, why would google change something thats not broken yet? They wouldn't (imho). It has been working all this time why change something, until we see all those spam pages ranked #1 we shouldnt worry. Anyways don't pages that get built up to quickly get knocked down.... Basically only time will tell. Have fun in the mean time

    the trouble is there are so many web sites now exploiting the backlinks thingy. Look at all the servies. "build backlinks..rank first page.."and it works. When this starts manipulating G they will make drastic changes. Now how far down the road that is is anyones guess.

    Yes that´s exactly what I mean.

    There are too many backlink services out there... G knows about all that and I think they look out for a new system.

    The other problem with top ranked sites are, they got 1.000.000 backlinks and if I do a search for something, I get an very old information only because that old website has a good rank. I look out for some new information about prepaid phone cards and get some very old informations.

    The other problem is, if I got some very good new homepage with the newest informations, I got no chance against the big old ones with old informations... Only to build 1 year backlinks and then get a good rank... but then the informations are already old for wich I would get ranked.

    you can not predict such things and plan for it, you just have to be addaptable to recognize the changes, and make the necessary changes in your business to continue ranking.

    If you keep living in the what if, you will not do anything!

    One way Google could stop using backlinks to gauge website popularity is to know WHICH webpages are being visited on a daily basis. They would have to know your web browsing habits somehow and people would freak, but the could say "10,000 people visited this website today, it must be popular".

    Isn't everyone missing the point here? Irrespective of the number of backlinks and or how they were sought g looks for relevancy and user experience.

    So long as you are providing that for your kw then you should have nothing to fear. At the end of the day anyone looking for viagra or a penile extender will want a site with such content?

    Keep your sites on topic and there shouldn't be much to worry about.

    Google is much smarter than we think friends and Bing have a larger market share is next to impossible.

    Goolgle wont remove backlinks but Google will devalue links from the same site and or same anchor text. Hence manual link building good , mass automated spamming will be less good.

    Nobody can answer your question properly, for now your best bet is to keep on building link slowly and steadily till you start seeing some improvements. SEO really isn't that hard, just focus on constantly getting relevant, anchored links and you'll be making money in no time. It's that simple.

    Backlinks, keyword and PR to some extend are ways of which search engine which really is just an algo bots define that one site/page is better than the others. From Google point of view (just guessing) the more inputs the better. So while the algo to spot good and bad backlinks will continually evolve, there is no indication whatsoever that Google will stop counting backlinks.
