Hey guys I've recently completed the content for one of my main sites and have started link building. I've estimated that i'll need around 35 quality links to rank the website number 1 on Google with my anchor text obviously in place. I've built around 5 already but need to wait for them to rank.
How many backlinks should I be building per day to get this site ranking consistently?

    Ranking is related to many factors.Only few links will not give you first page ranking.

    Build as many backlinks as you can.Because linkbuilding is continuos process not one time process.

    Build links consistently

    it all depends upon your niche. Build your links honestly, by hand and you cannot possibly do too many. And don't just concentrate on SEO and Google. There are many ways to generate traffic besides the search engines. And many of these ways will naturally generate your site backlinks.

    One good way to generate natural links is to give away content and tools for your specific niche to other webmasters. I believe you would call them the competition. One of my best link bait strategies in the past was to set up a directory of content and tools just for webmasters of the same niche. This was in the gambling field where competition is fierce. I never lost my top placements because new webmasters would come along and use my material to start their own websites. Though many of the new sites would never amount to much, once in awhile one did do well as they worked very hard to get their pagerank higher. In return, this makes the backlink from your provided content become strong. And these do add up. Not to mention you are getting links from your niche, from competitors, because you have the knowledge to create the material that they want to be able to create, but are often times too lazy of overwhelmed to do so. This works strongly for you in helping to establish your site as an authority site.

    There is an old saying: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
    By supplying content to the competition, they subconsciously befriend you because only nice guys would help out the competition, right?
    Never blow of the little guy just starting out. He may become a strong competitor someday. Best to keep them looking favorably upon you and thankful for your help. It does pay off, I ended up selling those "gambling portals" for a decent amount of cash to one of the worlds largest poker room directories.

    The best of luck to you!

      Thanks for the advice. Would you say giving my competition guest posts with a link to my website at the bottom would be just as good as a strategy as well. I've never done a guest post before but maybe now is a good time to try it.
