What are you doing these days to build backlinks? I understand that the idea is to build quality content which will hopefully earn you quality links. I cannot wrap my head around the fact that this may be the only true way to earn quality links to your site. What other ways are there? Buying links is an option but Google has been clamping down on paid links. How do you work around it and make it look natural? How do you even negotiate the cost of a link? Have you had any success with reciprocal linking?

How is a regular "Joe" supposed to make it on the net? By regular "Joe" I mean someone who may not have superior SEO knowledge, not a large budget to pay a company or someone to create quality articles for them, etc. What is it that an SEO company can do for you that you cannot do for yourself?

In the past, I've seen sites that do not update their content often and had decent ranking. What is the ticket to successful link building? What other methods work for you?

And is this not a very very large hint that link brgging, "article" writing, blog spamming commenting and other such junk sttributed (incorrectly) as "SEO" is simply a waste of effort??

I recently wrote a killer article that earned a few chunk of links and thousands of visitors in the course of three days. The article was Tweeted a great deal.

I think you're really mixing two different issues here. SEOmoz had a nice piece the other day about correlation vs cause/effect of SERPs on older sites.

Eh. Take that with a grain of salt.

The proof is in the pudding. Look at all the sites that ARE legitimately drawing new links and traffic: they are publishing content that people want to find and are willing to link to.

The secret is not so much TO publish great content as HOW TO CREATE the great content. That's the missing piece of the puzzle.

Frankly, not everyone is going to create great content. But practice makes perfect. You don't need any SEO studies or theories to master that skill.
