It is a common question that many will ask when it comes to link building campaign. So, how many backlinks is good enough for a link building campaign? I would say it is depending on your ability and as long as it is not automated. If you can build 50 or 100 backlinks a day consistently, you still won’t be marked as link farm site. Basically, backlinks are something that we can’t control. We can’t stop people from giving a backlink to our website, right? Anyway, many would still think 50 new links a day does not look organic and may raise google red flag. Personally, I have tried building 100-200 new backlinks a day from blog commenting and never raised any spam alert from any search engines.
Getting backlinks should not be made automatic. There is hundreds of free software that post comments to thousands of blogs at one click. This kind of backlink creation is not motivated and can cause spam alert. Google hates automated blog comment creation. Same goes to any other directories using auto submission tools. There is something in blogging and website or SEO that still can’t be automated and that is link building. I suggest you not to participate in any automated link building activity as it may get us penalty. Remember, we want to improve our SERP ranking not completely remove from search engines.
Personally, I have a simple calculation on how many backlinks that I should make a day. It depends on number of comments I get each day. If my blog gets 20 comments a day, then I would make 20 new backlinks pointing to blog. Well, that is my personal exercise on link building for this blog. Website might be easier because there is less number of outgoing links created each day. I would say blogs give out more links out compared to static websites. If you have started a blog or website, I would suggest building 10-20 new links a day on consistent basis. Remember to mix and use several “anchored keyword”. For example, I always use “Atniz”, Atniz – Work At Home”, “Work From Home”, “Reena”, “Reena Ashwina”, etc.
