I'm intending to start a new website in a very competitive and saturated niche where the top 10 sites have domain authorities on the likes of 60+ I totally understand it would be an extremely tough battle, but I feel confident at building back links and content, however according to current circumstances i would like to gather intelligence on what defines natural and a strong back link profile.

I would like to instigate a debate with the following questions.

Q 1. What percentage of your links should be pointed to home page?

Q 2. What percentage of links should be to the money pages?

Q 3. What percentage of links should be to the pages which hold money pages e.g categories

Q 3. When acquiring links to Home Page, what percentage of links should be Exact Match, Branded, Partial Match, Random?

Q 4. When acquiring links to Money Pages, what percentage of links should be Exact Match, Branded, Partial Match and Random?

Q 5. What are the symptoms of natural looking back link profile?

Q 6. What percentage of links should be nofollowed?

Q 7. What percentage of links should be from blog posts, news sites, forums, directories?

It would be interesting to know if someone can do a backlink analysis of powerful sites and speak the numbers.

Please ignore all other variables such as content, social, site structure and only take account of back links.

I think the approach you are taking is not set up for long term success. This is the 2007 approach to building traffic.

Yes, it does work for some people for now and maybe a little while longer.

BUT this is exactly what Matt Cutts team is trying to smack down and you are putting yourself in the cross hairs with this approach.

Do you own backlink analysis of the top ranking sites. Either go with spam or earn the links and brand trust over time. Simple as that.
