First the fun answer: You are already engineering your website with a view to manipulating the search results. You naughty NAUGHTY boy. That's not natural. Could get you slapped.
The best way to get a balanced approach to link building is to eat all-bran in the morning.
Serious: The long way.
Do backlink analysis of the first 10 sites to appear in the google index.
Code each of those link types in a book.
Get the %'s down following the analysis.
Repeat a similar backlink formula.
- This way at least if it fails you can rule out backlink analysis as instructive for promoting a website.
However the simple truth is that this strategy will likely only work for the niche that you are researching because there is no longer homogenity across the different vertical channels that Google is service results. For example finance is not the same as shoes.
