    So,

    My website is up, and getting about 1k views per day atm... These views are all coming from craiglist/other websites like craigslist atm. I have almost no ranking on google for anything, so I am just starting to do some SEO myself.

    Right now I am pushing about 1k backlinks (single line forum posts with keyword) to my website per day, then I am sending 50 additional backlinks (single line forum posts with keyword) and a bookmark to each of the original forum posts i made.

    This is costing my something like $2 a day, so its hardly anything, and i want to know if this will help me rank for low comp keywords.

    I am also interested in buying some more SEO, but I have no idea where to start/ what service would be best for a starting website without much capital.

    "single line forum posts with keyword"

    sounds like you are using 247backlinks or something similar? given current SEO techniques - the one thing i can tell you is diverfy the link platforms. web2, wikis, blog posts, and all the other stuff seo link types you can find.

    hope that helps.

    Thanks

    Yes, as the other 2 guys said, diversify.. wikis, forums, blog comments, social bookmarks, articles, web 2.0s, etc.. It's the only safe way to build a solid backlink profile.

    I'm going to follow suit with the other guys here and preach the gospel of backlink diversity. If all of your backlinks are from the same kind of site then your ranking is going to stink. Spread the love a little bit with social bookmarking, web 2.0, blog comments and the like and the results will speak for themselves. Really, diversity cannot be stressed enough, it is the most important thing about a backlinking strategy.

    Diverify Platforms and diversify anchor diversity. I looked at a site today that had 4-500 indexed anchors, all directories and he still ranked (100,000K Monthly Phrase). Best case, diversify everything. good luck.
