I believe that link velocity is important though.
So... for a new site, is this what I'm supposed to do?
1) Add around 10 a day to high pr blogs, forums, web 2.0, social bookmarking etc...
2) Dont just focus on the homepage, or the same anchor text... is there an actual number here, like 25% homepage...
3) Ping backlinks or not? I'm guessing yes
4) Do this for a month
5) When do I backlink my backlinks... during or after the month? Does it matter.
6) Is it better to post different amounts each day... say 8 one day, 12 the next... as it looks more natural
7) If I have too many of my backlinks on one blog, different pages, is this bad?
8) Some keywords I've been targeting that made it to page 1 of google, have recently dissapeared... does this mean they've been peanalized? I may have over optimized these 3 keywords. Once I target other anchor text... will this fix this problem?
