Site Building and Link Building Diary – Part 3

Well I took the weekend off from posting an update here, but that doesn’t mean I stopped my link building efforts.  Over the weekend I’ve been joining and posting on many different forums, blogs, and sites that fit into the niche or keyword that I am marketing my sites for, as well as requesting feedback and reviews for each of the sites.

Let’s see how we’re doing on backlinks and visitors compared to the previous numbers:

Jon’s Blog and Photos –
Inlinks: Google – 269/269/269/280, Yahoo – 150/152/145/199, Altavista – 181/186/181/227, Alltheweb – 180/185/179/225
Traffic: Google Analytics – 15/29/52/39

Gamer Junkie Forums –

Traffic: Google Analytics – 0/error/error/13
Threads – 0/8/17/27, Posts – 0/10/33/70, Members – 0/5/10/14

So where do we go from here?  At this point many new webmasters can lose hope in there efforts as it can take days/weeks/months for the search engines to pick up on all of our site and link building efforts.  Well the key here is to continue building links and advertising the sites to the best of my ability across the web (and especially in each sitse niche/keywords).

Don’t lose hope!  The most important thing now is to stay consistent in your efforts because it shows the search engines that you’re commited and it keeps your site’s growth steady (which the search engines prefer).

I am going to continue building links to my sites, and I will post back here with my findings every so often.  I will also try to keep everyone up to date if I find some really great resources for site and link building that just have to be shared.  Stay Tuned!
