Do not waste your time building backlinks ...

    I want to share my experience with SEO. I have found that building links is a waste of time, if the links you are building are not sending traffic. If you have time and money it's better to spend it on your content and product. Cause selling a normal product won't get you to rank 1st on Google or other search engines.

    If you are just starting out with SEO please do not obsess over building links. Just think of ways to add value to your users and they will link naturally. Try to figure out where you can promote your content without spamming other sites.

    Just think of this ...

    Who would sell more? Pepsi with a bad taste and a lot of marketing or Coke Cola with an amazing taste? The same principle applies to websites. Building links to a crappy site is not gonna get you anywhere. Invest in your quality rather than spamity :)

    Not agree because in your thread you are giving answer of your question or doubt.

    This is your answer .... If you are spammer and looking for only backlinks from anywhere then you are right that can not get any position after lots of spamming.

    How will user find you ..... There are many good content writers .... So according to you, if all good writers buy domain and write good contents so can bit his competitors without any link building or promotion ..... I dont think.

    I think you are talking about e-commerce site ..... because you are saying about general products ....... So according to me nothing is impossible ... Amazon is big one does not means other e-commerce site is not increasing his sales ....... just need to implement some new rules to serve your best for users ..... And need to take place at very good and high ranking site to get reputed backlinks.

    The Penguin algorithm update took care of the spammy backlink building practices and it's an ongoing effort. SEO gurus have lost this battle a while back, they just don't want to admit it.

    Your title should have been "Don't waste time On Building Crappy Backlinks" ....

    Backlinking is a must for me, and that is from experience. It should be good though. You see, I used to create really good content, loyal to Google not to send a link my way because that was unnatural. I used to spend time on finding really low competitive keywords, build the best content I could and wait for sites to link back to me. At the same time, I saw other sites including new ones pick up my keywords, outrank me while I stayed there fearing that I will be penalized. It will happen again and again until you are off the same page.

    What I learned is that I need all of them. Good keywords, Good Content & Good Backlinks. I mean, I'd rather have a blend of PepsiCocacola than just Coca Cola :)

    I see what you are saying, I agree with you on building GOOD links. But you don't need to waste hours doing so. I honestly hate link building and would rather provide more value through better content or product than spending hours looking for ways to build links. It's time consuming.

    I think the best way to promote your content is through outreach and advertising. But in order for those to work well you must have outstanding Coke :)

    I should have added that promoting is a must, but do it properly and without spamming. I just hate how people think of promoting their sites. And I use to be one of them. But I learned the hard way that building links is better off organic.

    Thank you for your response :)

    I just wanted to share my experience and let other who are just starting out to avoid my mistakes.
