I was wondering if I could get some advice.
I am currently building a site in the acne niche, currently the site has around 5 pages and I intend to build it up to an authority site. My concern is backlinks and I am not sure what the best way of progressing.
a. Just focus on building content and my site and not worrying about backlinks - get a 30 page site, continue adding content but then look at submitting my previous pages of content to directories.
b. focus on both, add a page of content get it indexed and then build backlinks via article directories, blog commenting, videos, document sites etc.
I have found a SEO service that offers linkwheels, would it be worthwhile if I just focus on building content to the site and then paying for 1 linkwheel a week to boost traffic to 1 chosen post per week?
