Time Management

I'm having a hard time organizing my link building strategy.. I know what I have to do... but I have not too many hours to build links and it's a little frustrating cause I feel like I want to do everything at once...

How do you organize your day/schedule to build links? do you have daily goals or things like that?

Here is what you can do:

First put your entire strategy on an excel sheet. Divide your link building strategy into segments like directory submission, article submission etc. Assign each of them a date and number of hours. Follow that through. Don't let new information deviate you from the plan.

yep that's what I've implemented somehow...

I did a spreadsheet with each item (forum posts, web 2.0 articles, etc) and a goal... and then like a calendar with some spaces so I can note what I've done and I haven't done so far... I will try to stick to that for a week and see what happens... link building needs organization... you are completely lost if you don't follow a plan... :\

Also , use TT kw analysis tool to give yourself a target. Setting a specific # of links to build to each page will help rather than just posting links indefinitely.

What I do is take the average of the top 10 sites, double it, and build that # of links to each page, then check rankings and see which pages still need more.

it is easier to have a measurabl goal that you can control. just saying build links until you reach the top of google is setting a goal to something outside of your control

I know it is overwhelming to start building backlinks. Like Sonitin suggested, getting everything in excel is one way to get organized. Also, remember to track everything you are doing. It is not just a matter of collecting links, but also try to record your efforts at least after a month of building links.This way, you will know if your efforts are working. Good luck!
