I often find I am at a loose end when I blast backlinks (manually or otherwise). I do the blast then am just checking google analytics every day to see if any indexed yet which usually they don't for a good few days/weeks. I am quite happy to do more work but I'm not sure what to do. So what other SEO can I be doing while I'm waiting for one run of links to process? I haven't done any web2.0 stuff yet so I could get on that, plus mass article submissions (are these two diff things or both the same) Anything else? I don't see any point optimizing my money sites at the moment since they are getting no traffic (except for myself *blush*). I plan to do that once I'm getting traffic so I can test what is working and what isn't with CTR etc.
