I am new to HR and a relative newbie when it comes to SEO. I need to work seriously at promoting a new site and service - which is all about HTML5, Web2 etc. I have little time to digress into any serious link building myself so I am considering outsourcing this task. There is a plethora of offers out there. Amongst the offers I have found are
- Creating X backlinks via comments in blogs
- Ditto but focusing on .edu blogs
- Social bookmarks
- Social bookmarks with PH5+
- Morphing and submitting the same article text to X article sites
The prices are variable - ranging from as little as $20 to anything upwards of $399. Being a relative newbie I thought it best to seek some advice before whipping out my credit card. Are there any do's and don'ts in this game. Do any of the above sound like a waste of time/money or both? Any other generic tips I might be able to use would be most welcome. Please don't tell me to DIY - there are only 24h a day and sadly that is not enough.
