My question is when it comes to building links to s site that has relatively few links right now how fast is too fast when it comes to building links?
20/month? 50/month? 100/month?
Obviously there is no set number but surely I don't have to get just 5-10 links a month in fear of creating a un-natural "linking profile"
I mean sure going out and buying 1000 links in one day is stupid but I don't want to live in fear either.
The way I look at it is that I have nothing to lose as no SEO has been done anyway but don't want to harm my efforts from the start.
Any general rules of thumb?
However, if I was to play it safe, I'd say this. If you're bulk building links, keep the volume steady. If you're building them by hand, one at a time, I wouldn't expect any issue.
I build links in bursts. I buil a calculator or something, then build links like crazy. Then nothing. Then I get an idea and off I go building links again 3 or 4 months later. But since they're all one up, 'building links' for me might be in the 10's at a time.
Automate link building doing something like directory submission might be a bit different.
