Site Building and Link Building Diary – Part 4

Back again, it’s been a few days and I figured it was time to post another update.  I’ve been networking with other webmasters and exchanging links with other relevant sites in each of my top keyword niches.  I’ve also been staying active on relevant sites, blogs, and forums with signatures, comments, and links back to my sites.

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