I'm having some difficulty figuring out timing a plan to get high rankings for long tailed keywords with medium/little competition. As you know, you can't just blast posts and articles with your links right away, because Google flag such behavior. I'm currently trying out SEnuke, which does a lot of automated backlinks. Here's an example of the question: let's say I'm going for 1 long-tailed keyphrase: Step 1: I'll set up a few squidoo and other Web 2.0 pages that link to my main page that I want to rank highly in. Step 2: I'll write 2+ articles, and submit them to a 10-15 article sites, rotating URLs (that point to those Web 2.0 pages, which link to my site) per day Step 3: I'll also get about 20 profile page links per day Step 4: I'll do social bookmarking to 10-15 sites per day Step 5: I'd ping all of the new URLs with the pinger in SEnuke. The question is: So once you're done with those submissions, which only takes a matter of minutes with SEnuke what do you do? What's the next step? I'm just trying to figure out what a regular schedule would look like =) Or do you guys work on 5+ main sites per day, doing some sort of production line of sites or something? Would you say my daily numbers of submissions above are too little/too much? What would you do differently? I feel like there is something large I'm missing, because that amount of work is too little, and only takes 20 minutes in a day or so. Any more than that, and I feel I'm already spamming my links. Thanks a lot.
