Hi warriors,

I have printing website which sells custom printing products and I have hired seo company to do seo work. They are doing 200 backlinks a month and I thought that would be enough, but it seems not working so well.

The 200 backlinks include high pr links(4-8), directory submission, social bookmarking, blog posting and pr submission.

Would 200 backlinks a month enough to make my website rank high?
My keywords are very competitive.
Or do I need new strategy instead of this type of backlinks?

I'd appreciate any suggestions!
Thanks

      Indeed.

      And from what I can see, looks like they have built a lot of PR1-PR2 spammy links from spammy domains.
      But yeah, 200 backlinks a month is actually overkill, especially if they are supposedly PR4-PR8 links. 1 PR8 link a month would be substantial to be honest.

    I suggest build 2-3 quality backlink daily manually. It will make 60-90 backlink in a month. Do not buy backlinks ever

      I agree to this opinion, if you increase backlinks fast, you can get google penalty.

    Quality backlinks will plays ever to get high website rank, not as quantity. So need to focus yourself about making good quality backlinks to your website.

      Hi all, thanks for your reply.
      I was trying so hard to contact with my seo company and they are not reachable now, disappeared.

      I am already in trouble with google now, I was on #8 and now on page 5.
      With other keywords are same too, mostly on page 5,6,7...

      I am trying to build 2-3 quality backlinks everyday now thanks to kamalgoyal!
      Is there anything else you guys can suggest for business like this? This business is all about printing products.. bit different to content sites i guess..

    It may take some time to see the results of the backlinks on the search engines, so you will need to be patient. Furthermore, it is important to have backlinks in related websites or categories to what you have on your site. Why? Because if the links may be found by search engines as unrelated to your sit, they will attach little value. So if the backlinks are quality, you will see the results. However, very competitive keywords might not attract targeted visitors if they are general. Keyword phrases are better for results.

    The quantity of the backlinks are not important because you will be slapped by google bot.
    Just build a quality, relevant authority backlink and Web2.0 links, submit some videos. Maintain your website well. Just you can slap the humming bird away.

    Cheers!!

    Getting high quality backlinks is the only way to get your site ranking higher. The SEO company you hired is probably building low quality links. Someone said that building 1 pr 8 link a month would be substantial and I agree. If you building 200 links a month that is not good and does not look natural to Google. Hire an article writing service that will post your articles to high pr article marketing sites. Content is the new SEO anyway

    I think you badly need to stop doing a transaction with them. The truth is you can even gather 200 backlinks a week if you are dead serious about your business. Anyway, try using other SEO strategies that will help you boost the ranking of your website. I hope this would be helpful to you.

      Get links? Obtain links? Whatever you call it, link building is still an important and essential part of SEO as most links won't come naturally, no matter how good your content. But what you won't want to do is spam links and that's where webmasters and bloggers get in trouble, not legitimately obtaining useful backlinks from high quality sites.

        And, more than backlinking, social networking is an essential activity for the successful internet marketer. You can't simply rely on search engine traffic to produce sales. Of course, it will give you traffic but how much of that is actually converting to sales?

    Ranking depends on the quality of your backlinks not quantity.No matter how much backlinks you are making in a month but if your backlink are coming from spammy or low PR website then it will not provide much benefit to you.

      Many people claim to be SEO experts online and promise these high page rank backlinks but usually only provide spam comments back from edu/.gov sites. These comments are usually deleted the next time the moderator gets online to check the blog. Then the value of that backlink is gone.

        The Google algorithm will recognize something fishy, when you go from not having any backlinks, to having 200 a month. They are smart enough to know that a legitimate company will have people share and like it's posting. The Google algorithm can track the legitimacy of these people from how long they have created an account and how often they post and share.

        Also, having too many .edu and .gov links in a month, will also raise a flag. If your website does not belong on a .edu or .gov, then don't bother. It's horrible SEO strategy and Google will actually weight it against you.

        If your in the first phase of link building, invest in a tool like yext, and have your website links on all the main directories (superpages, yellowpages, ext.). It's designed for small business as it's cheap and efficient.

        Good link building ranking come from reviews, recommendations, and shares by people that have had accounts for a long time (not ones that just made an account so they can give you a review)..... if you want the most bang for your buck, concentrate on google plus shares and links as google ranks them the highest among social mentions.

    Joke of the century.

    How do you expect a list of crapping backlinks from junk sites to do you any good.

    Your next plan will be to increase the number of crappy backlinks but that will only do more harm than good.

    I suggest you withdraw from that SEO contract at once and retrace your step.
