    you manage to get a few backlinks from major sites like finance.yahoo and the wall street journal, and decide to build like 5k links to the pages linking to your site?

    Probably nothing will happen. Because if you get a link from such websites, they already have thousands upon thousands of backlinks and your 5k won't make any difference :)

    Why you thinking about ranking??

    Look at the bigger picture...you try to rank to get traffic. If your link is prominent on a major new publication, the traffic will drive itself. If you are able to do this, then spend less time backlinking and more time getting your links on more publications.

    Sure the site has backlinks, but it doesn't have back links to the specific URL on the site that's linking to mine. I'm talking about building links to the url my article is on.

    There are many goals for this site, none of which are entirely mine to decide upon. Right now, we're mainly interested in ranking :)

    I would think those sites that are linking to you would be easy to rank due to their authority if they arnt already. So myself i would backlink them to give them a push (if they need it)

    So you wanna spam the article with 5000 links which most of them probaly have a bad link neighborhood, when you just achieved a sick link.

    If I were you I would go the safe route with social signals, a strong blognetwork and some high pr comments. Nothing else

    If it were me I would build a link pyramid under each article on the main sites. I wouldn't hit the gold links with 5k, make some content rich blogs that point to the main article with anchored backlinks and blast them with 5k trackbacks each. I would definitely recommend freshly scraped lists for the trackbacks.
