High Authority Backlinks

Time to watch today’s videos: Approximately 16 minutes.

Additional time to complete today’s action steps: You could spend 15 minutes on this, you could also spend hours – it’s probably best to limit your link creation to 3-5 a day.  Much more than that could look spammy.  This should be considered an ongoing activity.  You may not need to do this daily, but a few times a week wouldn’t hurt…
