LOL, well, since Im not a senior Citizen YET (im only 35) I don't know how well I could do that one. the thing is , there are hundreds of ways to get backlinks. posting just for a link is no good in a forum, or really any form of social media.
Blog commenting is the same, if you have something of value to add, then leave a comment. When I am link building through any social setting, I look at as a way to engage people, if I am allowed a link too, then I will take it, but the engagement and relationships are the front line.
I am not a very social person, by nature. In fact, I was just discussing with my GF how I sometimes felt like I was fake, because I am not generally very sociable. But, being social online and bieng social offline are different. i love social media, and getting to know people. going out on the town with people is another story. scares me to death LOL
When I get to chatting with people online, my focus is to help the people on the other end. If they happen to check out my site, thats great, but my primary focus is to help them as much as I can.
Generally when I see people struggling to do that it is because of 1 of two things, which I talk about extensively in my guide. Either they are in a niche they don't know or they are too worried about what other people will think.
I have been on both sides of that, and neither one is good for you. if you are in the wrong niche, you simply need to find one that you actually know something about. if it is fear stopping you., push through it. People probably don't think about you nearly as much as you think.
Your Focus Determines Your Reality
