With link building, you have to use your time wisely. You need a positive attitude, remembering that there will be thousands of potential sites that could be deemed as ‘inventory’ for your particular link building campaign.
In a month, I will do the following
1) Build inventory – scan SERPS and look for blogs (1 week)
2) Viability of links – whether webmasters will entertain the placement of an inbound link (2 weeks)
3) Placement of links – giving good quality descriptions with checked URLS (1 week)
By approaching link building in this way you will view this vital area of SEO as more of a pleasurable hobby instead of an uphill battle.
