    Hey guys!
    In a nutshell i have never done any SEO work and have relied on social media as a way of getting traffic.
    But now im ready to put the extra work in to ranking for keywords.

    Whats the best way to start this? I know of many automated blackhat methods but im abit uneasy using them as i dont want google to slap the hammer down on me!!

    So whats the whitehat ways? I dont mind sitting here for hours on end doing repetitive tasks i just need to no how to do it then ill be off!

    So is white hat back linking pretty much me visiting hundreds of sites and using the comment system with a link to my site using anchor text as the keyword i want to rank for?
    Or is that not the way to go?

    Whats the first steps, do i submit my site to article exchange websites?

    Im continuing to educate myself on this by browsing the forums and the internet, its just nice to speak to people aswell to get a better understanding!

    Peace to you all!:cool:

    Read all the blackhat methods and then adapt yourself for hours doing it manually! Like for many tiered link building is a rage currently BUT after understanding it and executing it by hand you will land up in an asylum ! Just kidding.......
    BTW there is NO whitebait method! If you just build your website and do nothing then you are whiteht else a genius who values time! An time is money!

    My answer to this question will be a very pragmatic approach. I hope you can get the clue.

    Go and examine services offered on Buy/sell threads.

    I would go and grab some manuals covering both on and off page SEO. Once somewhat familiar with the topic, you then can look into some services on this forum for the off page SEO efforts. Then again, if you are well versed in driving traffic to your sites using social media, maybe just outsource the SEO work to someone or some company providing it. It's preferred to use multiple methods to drive traffic to your site and not rely solely on one.

    Do you have a specific keyword in mind? If so, have a look at the top 5 and see how they are ranking. Look at what kind of links they have pointing to the site. There's plenty of tools out there who can help you with that...

    After you've done with that, simply copy the types of link they have.

    Home Page:
    Build backlinks with anchors that you want to rank for from websites that have PR 2+ and ALEXA 300,000-. Research your top ranking for those keywords competitors' backlinks, see if you will be able to also have backlinks pointing to your website from those sources as well. Programs like ahrefs, ibacklinkpro, majestic seo... should help you out with uncovering the sources of your competitors' backlinks.
    I hope this helps!
