I'm still relatively new to Internet Marketing and so far have had a few sites that have worked out and have had a few sites not work out. I've been trying to keep the costs low starting out so i've mainly focused on good on-page SEO, and obtaining backlinks through blog commenting, link exchange (with other blog owners), and writing articles.
Lately i've been getting a bit frustrated as I can see that the links my competition uses come from all sorts of random areas like chinese forums, blog posts that have nothing to do with the niche or the content of the post, and other areas.
As I mentioned I wanted to keep costs low, but feel I may need to start paying for or buying some backlink services, but i'm not sure where to go.
I've looked at tools like Unique Article Wizard, but i'd rather go a bit cheaper than that for now. I'd like to have a few more income earners before making the monthly investment of UAW.
I was just wondering what others were using. Are you outsourcing your links, are you purchasing packages from people, or are there other cheaper tools out there that I do not know about.
Any help is greatly appreciated .
