Glad to have joined the forum.
I urgently need some research in the area of backlink indexation which is quickly becoming my Achilles Heel in terms of SEO knowledge.
I have researched all my normal places and cant find anything. Even on SEOmoz which seems to be a Pandora's Box.
My issue is building backlinks then experiencing an endless wait for them to be indexed (if at all in regards to average quality directories etc.).
I believe that there are a number of techniques that I would consider grey hat such as creating RSS feeds which include URL's of pages with your backlinks on then submitting to RSS Directories which I believe are effective in increasing backlink indexation. Similarly bookmarking backlinks could be seen as spammy too.
Based on my knowledge the only white hat technique is to sit on your hands and wait for the backlinks to appear, but need a second option. I am also slightly concerned about increasing indexation then becoming sandboxed as a result of getting a large number of links indexed at the same time.
Would be great to hear other peoples thoughts and to confirm my theories. Would love any links to authority sources on the subject as I have tried and failed finding any info on this.
