[If you only had a limited budget, say $20 a week, how would you invest it to build backlinks and google position? I have recently used Fiverr to get some profile backlinks, using somebody recommended in the SAMBA report. And also some articles issued to over 1000 directories, again through Fiverr. But to see results and improvements in google position, how would you proceed? Can anybody recommend anybody or service that really works? Any “warriors for hire” promotions that get good results? The site I’m looking to promote is about 10 months old and has been ticking over, with basic linking and good content.]
Regardless of what people tell you, in the end, you will have to try out different methods or services for yourself. Test, test, test and then test some more. Be careful that you don’t react to what is purely anecdotal evidence. At $20 per week, it is going to take a while to gather enough data to be actionable.
Dedicate the next several months to testing a variety of different methods and services with the goal being to accumulate data that you can use to make informed decisions. Once you have enough data to make assumptions, spend another month or two testing and verifying those assumptions. Eventually, you will have enough data to draw a valid conclusion about which methods and services that can be relied upon for success.
The bottom line is what worked for one person isn’t necessarily going to work for you. There are many reasons why this is true, trust me on this.
Personally, I would recommend that you first learn the difference between meritorious links and webspam. Then decide which path you want to follow.
Meritorious link building requires more effort and may take just a bit longer at the beginning, however, your results will generally be long-lasting and grow in value over time. While web spam may be easier to generate, it tends to have substantially less value and requires massive amounts to make a significant difference over time.
The essential difference between meritorious links and webspam is that meritorious links are accompanied by useful and valuable content, while web spam tends to be useless self-serving content that often violates the terms of either the website where it is placed or the search engine guidelines for valuable content.
