    I am seeing all these methods on how you can index your backlinks on Google. A lot of people are saying to blast them, or to submit them to google. A lot of people are saying it will work much better if you leave them alone.

    What are your opinions, what is your method, and why?

    I'd personally leave them alone for two reasons: First, Google finds them naturally over time, avoiding some unnatural link growth or spikes. Second, a link Google doesn't find without help, is a worthless links anyway. If you have to force indexing of a link, it's crap you don't want anyway.

    Depends upon priorities. As web 2's are having a hard time in getting indexed, it is better to give them contextual link blast if you do not want to wait longer. Otherwise, natural indexing is anyways the best option.

    imo if the link is 6 months old and still not indexed then thats the time that you will manually index it, but if the link is brand new, let big G find it.
