    Can’t satisfy with your tips because of the Link Exchanging techniques. I remember on the recent Matt Cutts update he Said: You can link together of your blog if the site related. But doesn’t mean to exchange links with any. I know that’s would give you the higher penalty…

  8. Michael

    Try to only get links from sites that are related to our niche. Unnatural backlinks looks suspicious to Google and you can get sand-boxed.
