    Hi,

    I'm just kind starting out with a new project. Have been doing some backlink work and stuff. Now have $100 to spend at the moment so what should I spend it on? Can someone recommend some services?

    By the way I have looked at the services, not being lazy but there are so many to choose from. As i'm starting out I assume social bookmarking and directory submission would be a good place to start?

    Thanks, Phil

    Are you looking for services only or tools to help you do your own backlinking?

    Personally I would go with articles and profile links over social bookmarking and directory submissions myself. Much better results long term.

    I would say find a niche that you are interested in, read a ton on it and how others are making money in it, THEN spend the $100 doing that. Also, don't try to read everything about everything, stay focused one 1 area at a time. If its facebook then read nothing but facebook stuff.

    Yes just looking for services. I have some tools like scrapebox which I use for finding high PR links myself but other than that looking to outsource the rest.

    I would take the time to learn to build back links the proper way, which means just going through all of the steps yourself. After that, you can outsource because you will know what works and what doesn't. Just my two cents :)

    Hey Corky,

    Tough question, because your new project could get a boost from $100 in all sorts of ways (buying expired domain traffic, buying Facebook accounts to sell status update and affiliate stuff from, paying for leads to big ticket items...) it really depends on the project itself. But I'll keep things general.

    You specifically said that you don't want to spend it on software so, generally speaking, if I wanted to spend $100 on something related to social bookmarking, directory submissions, etc. I'd spend a bit on articles (there's a services thread that I narrowed things down to but haven't used them yet so I can't vouch for them personally at the moment - let me know if you want it anyway though and I'll post it when I get home since it's bookmarked there) then a yearly subscription for The Best Spinner - that way you'd get a lot out of the $100 for this project and others in the future too.

    Basically content itself will get you pretty far and, for most purposes, the fresher the content the better, so it's worth it to spend the $100 on fresh or somewhat fresh content efforts/services is how I see it.... generally speaking :).

    Thanks for the reply. I've never really tried articles before, might be worth a try... could add it into my monthly promotion. Yes if you could post the service thread and i'll check it out! :)


    So this is what i've done to get me started:

    One-off:
    - Purchased an all in one submission packet (social bookmarking, articles, web directory etc...)

    Monthly:
    - Xrumer 10k verified links
    - Backlinking package - 640 backlinks (atleast 80 high PR 4-9)

    Is there anything else I should throw into the mix? Plan to purchase a High PR linkwheel later!

    Can anyone recommend a good service for high PR gov and edu links?

    See all the sites that are on top of your specific keyword search engine results, and then you might notice that there are "authority" sites like wikis and stuff like that... then other sites. If article sites dominate it, write articles and spin them to the max with the best spinner. Get an expert writer who knows how to use TBS and give you a lot of articles for $8 each, including original article and TBS spin... if you need one, let me know. All the rest like directory submission etc, do manually, get a form filler like lastpass.

    If that's all you have, save it. Do the work yourself. You might need the $100 for something else down the line.

    No, I do have more to spend, about $150-$200 each month. The $100 was just to spend on getting started, to get the site out there a bit at the start.

    Ended up spending it on social bookmarking, web submission, directories submissions and a couple of other services! :)

    buy article submission service for 20-30$
    buy Angela and Pual backlink service for 20-30$
    and for the rest of the money take a drink and sit back

    After I spent the $100 to start out, I actually spent this months money on the Xrumer service and Angela and Pauls backlinks. Going to do some article marketing next month! Great minds think alike! :)
