    I've recently launched a new magazine style site which has 4 main categories.
    Now within those categories I'm posting 2/3 high quality articles a week with every article being on a different subject.

    The posts themselves have a good keyword density, images, etc. And every post targets at least one keyword.
    Now the thing is that apart from some social media traffic I've only gotten a couple of hits from google, and since my site is only a couple weeks old I'm not really seeing what keywords (articles) are attracting them for now.

    I've tried researching some of the keywords I'm trying to target in my articles and some are low-medium competition with 500-3k searches and CPC's between 0.5 - 1.5$. Problem is I'm not yet ranking for any of them. (apart for some impossible longtails)

    Should I build (or order) backlinks towards these article URL's / keywords or what would be the best approach in your opinion?

    Thanks in advance.

    There are services that interest me but my question is whether to link to an individual article targeting it's KW or to go for a more broad term and link towards my site root / category. (those KW's would be very hard to rank for since they'd be too broad)

    I realise this is a very basic question and I wouldn't be having this problem launching a MNS or a site that would be targeting the same kw's site-wide, but hopefully someone can give me some advice. :)

    No advice? Should I have posted this in the BH section?
