I have a new website, that has 5 pages (including home page), no backlinks yet.

If I am willing to do SEO for the 5 pages (4 actually but I also want to build some backlinks to the homepage to make things natural).

Then what is the total number of backlinks for the first month you would suggest me to build to avoid troubles?

    Yes, go for a lower number of high quality backlinks. If the backlinks are high quality, 5 or 10 a day total should be plenty, and if you vary your anchor text (using related keywords, your website name and things like "click here" and "this post") you shouldn't draw any unwanted attention from google.

    You can have any number of backlinks for your site, the quality of the backlinks matters. If you have some quality backlinks it will be valued more.

    Well geting back link is depend on how you do off page SEO activities with uniqueness. If you do some spam work then you will not able to get the back link but if you so white hat SEO then there is much possibilty(not exactly) to get the back link. So, do proper of page SEO. And there is not any assumption that how any back links you will get in one month. as i told earlier it is depend on your off page SEO activity.

    Actually we can not do link building with counting.generally we always start link building work slowly for new websites and keep continue with it till we get desired keywords in top places.
    Thanks

    Depends on your keyword competition and your objectives, since you said you have a new site I would aim for about 100 links per page per month, I'm talking contextual backlinks here.....make sure you keep your link velocity consistent especially with a new site...

    Thanks everyone for your inputs. I really don't want to direct any spammy links to my website, just quality ones from authority webs. But since I read somewhere that Google may find it fishy that a new website (3 months old) getting a big number of backlinks, thats why I am asking about it here and it looks like everyone has a different opinion.

      Everybody will have there own opinion because what works for one
      site in a specific niche maybe totally different to another site in a
      different niche. Some niches are extremely aggressive with their link
      building.

      How old is the domain for example... If the domain has been around a
      while you can be more aggressive even though you've only just set
      the site up.

      Why don't you start off slowly and build up. SEO is a slow process
      anyway so no need to rush... Test it out and see how your site reacts.

      Just try and look as natural as possible and mix them links up.
      Don't go for 100 PR6 blog links and nothing else.

      Always stay away from spammy looking sites...

    I always start with social bookmarking to get sights indexed faster and more traffic. Then I would either do High PR backlinks consistently or Relevant backlinks and try to have things done manually.

    The number of backlinks are does not matter with SEO. Starting with quality dofollow backlinks. Start with do follow social bookmarking for quick indexing.

    All links will be counted but ur site is very small, site with less page ( content ) wont work well in Google. Better is at the first add rich content with many pages, update frequently and make proper on page optimization..then start off page

    There are no specific numbers of link needed. If you have an opportunity to get link juice from a page, do it as much as you can. But remember to read first the Google webmaster guidelines where they stated that linking to bad neighborhoods will have bad effects for your site.
