Hello to everyone here at the warrior forum, hope I don't bother you all with my newb questions, as I did find a lot of information around here and would really hate to annoy the hand that feeds me to death.Since I tend to talk a lot I have highlighted the important words.
I'm Rix, a student of psychology from Romania.
Usually I made my money from seminars(not internet marketing though) and teaching some people what I know about SEO.(the very basics)
Now, considering I still have 2 years till finishing college, also my usual seminar clients moved away, and my country is in a profound economical crisis, someone suggested I apply what I know and start a blogspot blog about anxiety, something as a psychologist I know a lot about.
I did that in September but didn't pay much attention to it as it took a lot of time to get indexed and even appear in Google for that keyword, though I bookmarked it, wrote 3 articles( lazy) and got a hundred and a bit backlinks.
What's weird is that the page appearing in Google is not the page of the blog I built backlinks for, since I built them for my main page. It's a page there were no direct backlinks for so...do I keep building for my main page or, build them for that page now?
And why does that happen?
Also, what bothers me is that whenever I ask for advice, all people do is ask me that I did and say "Aah...complete noob mistake..you should have done more.." and say another component.
For example, if I say I did a lot of link building they will tell me I should have done more content than links, if I say I put up a lot of quality content, they say I should have gotten more links.
So..which should one focus on more? I want your opinion. From what I've seen with some sites I advised, focusing on anchor text backlinks does the trick.
