At the moment I am still trying to find some affordable and effective link building methods.
In order to test different types of links I’ve been trying different things on different sites. I guess this is one of the benefits of having lots of sites: you’ve got lots of testing grounds.
But testing one service or approach on one site and another on a different site takes a lot of time.
Sometimes I feel I’d be better off if I threw everything at one site rather than spreading it across many sites.
So far I’ve been doing articles one one site, social bookmarks on another, then Web 2.0s on that one and then forum profiles on this one.
All this has really got me though, is small movements on each site. I can’t afford to do it all on all of my sites but I think I’ve been going at it the wrong way.
Perhaps it is time to try everything on one site and then see if it moves before moving on to the next site. I might not know exactly what worked as I tried lots of things but maybe that isn’t a problem? Maybe there is no one or two things I can do that will move my sites up in the SERPs and I should give up trying to find it.
I guess this is the downside of having lots of sites: that you have too many sites to test things on and end up spreading yourself too thinly.
If you are just starting out in this game I recommend you either:
- Limit yourself to three to five sites and throw everything you have at them (time and money)
- Find a scalable model/method/approach and hire someone else to do it on lots of little sites.
Either way, don’t do what I’ve done and end up with lots of sites on page one or two and hardly any at number 1 in Google!
