I really don't want to spend hours sifting through blogs trying to gain back links. I don't think its a good use of my time...
personally, I am getting more and more convinced that it is probably the BEST use of one's time to do this.
but even better would be from authoritative non-blogs that are related to your subject.
...what about writing my own blogs with unique content and then using anchor text links?
Will these blogs be ON your site? Or will they be on a DIFFERENT site and just link back to your site?
And if they are on a DIFFERENT site, just because you have good content doesn't mean they will pass any page rank to your main site, because you will need lots of good inbound links to pass page rank on through to the main site.
So how will you get good inbound links to your blog which you will then pass on to your main site?
If the blogs will be on your main site, they will have to be very unique and interesting, and you will have to spend a lot of time / money to promote them anyways.
Basically, you will need to write content that matches these three criteria:
1) People are interested in that content
2) They can't find it anywhere else
3) It is closely related to the material on the rest of your site.
If you can fill all three of those criteria, then you probably don't need to build links.
