I've been working my butt off doing this but I don't want all my hard work to go to waste, so I want to know - Is this sufficient enough for SEO?
I've given up on backlinks because the amount of work that you put in for even a few backlinks is simply not worth it - I'd rather spend my time writing quality content for my site. Not to mention that if you build backlinks too quickly and they appear unnatural, Google is likely to give you a search engine penalty.
What do you think? Is this sufficient enough to make my site successful? The site is fairly new (about 5 months old) and it currently has about 7,500 page views per month.
Any feedback is appreciated!
