For a lot of sites that rank high, the backlinks are articles. I was checking the backlinks for some site, and here are 3 similar articles that their SEO guy wrote: h44p://www.activegrains.com/your-successful-sales-strategy/ h44p://adultatwork.com/how-to-hire-the-ideal-manager-on-sales/ h44p://www.wizardwebcreations.com/motivation-in-department-of-sales/ they have more articles like this. my question is, once you write these articles, what do you do so the search engines notice them? ping them? blast them with scrapebox (comment and use them as your url)? RSS them? social bookmarking? another question, how do you find these sites to drop your articles in? are these blogs, article sites, diary/journal sites? another question, is it harmful if your anchor texts are too many? if i want to rank high for 8 phrases, should i pick the best 2? does using all 8 hurt my site? how do i decide which 2 to pick?
