What do you find effective & Google-ethical/compatible in 2013 for link building?
I've been buying 1-2 directory links, been releasing guest articles with embedded links and been leaving forum signatures, as well as blog comments with links.
Effect is very weak on a new site launched last September.
From 50-60 visitors/month in September I pushed it up to abut 500 monthly in December. :confused:
I am avoiding bulk directory links and don't want to waste money on buying tons of potentially harmful links.
Ideas, tips, experience? :confused:
