im a complete rookie. I have a site that has been getting about 200-300 visitors a day. Its a fantasy sports blog that I try to update about 2-3 times a week.
i have some adsense on the site and i get about $35 a week from those ads. I have a good cpc of about .21
now ive been reading this site and i dont know if im just missing the picture or what have it. But from what I can tell backlinking seems to be 1 of the 4 things needed to generate more site traffic.
now i have fresh content updated, i have good keywords (i think), and i have a good niche. I go onto the espn.com forums and post on there about my site and I get people coming to the site from there.
my question: how would one backlink to a fantasy sports blog. is what im doing an example of backlinking? or should I be doing something else?
edit: I can post on espn.com as long as I dont spam it. which i dont. According to google analytic most of my traffic is direct links, which means not a lot of new visitors.
