I have a question in relation to google rankings. I am in competition with much bigger websites like thinkexist.com and quotegarden.com. These sites are definitely a lot older, but what I have noticed about one in particular is that the owner has a LOT of backlinks on different article submission sites and so on. He is making about $17,000 monthly. What do you think is the most important thing for me to do in order to start getting more traffic from Google? I am posting a lot of backlinks too, but I am afraid Google might be filtering them because of the newness of my site. Its only 4 months old compared to other sites that are 10 or 11 years old Are there any opinions on that? Does anyone have experience with this?
