Do you really build backlinks by creating MANY pages on different high traffic sites like hubpages/squidoo/social bookmarks/profile websites and then linking it to your webpage with an anchor text?
I mean, how effective is this and how many of these do you need to do to rank on the first page of google for a non competitive long tail keyword of say less than 5000 competitors.
I'm sure you experts do not build backlinks yourself anymore because it's such a chore and bore so how do you guys do it? I've heard so many negatives about buying backlinks, but some guys who sell it claim that they are white hatters, so it kinda sounds contradictory. Is there such a thing as white-hatter link sellers, or will it do more harm to you than good?
