I have a question about backlinking. I have seen 2 approached that Warriors take to link building.
1) Manual Backlinking
-Outsource 20+ articles to be written and use these for article marketing
-Find forums and blogs to post and comment on
-Find directories to post in
-Use high PR link packages like those supplied monthly by Angela
-Post to Web 2.0 properties like Squidoo and Hubpages
2) Highly Automated Backlinking - the tactics here are similar but are highly automated using software like:
-The Best Spinner (instead of getting an actual writer)
-Instant Article Factory
-Blog Blue Print
-Article Blue Print
I guess I'm mostly wondering about high automated backlinking. While on one hand you don't want to seem like a spammer to Google... on the other hand people that are using these tools are churning out huge "link wheels" way faster... and seem to be getting good rankings.
I've only created 2 websites so far and I'm already getting overwhelmed by backlinking requirements...
... so is it ok to use some of these automation programs?
I understand that you need to pace your linkbuilding and not do too much too fast.
