I just talked to an SEO guy and I cant figure out what the hell he is doing to get these sites ranked so high. This guy focuses on creating satellite sites that target a specific phrase then links them to the money site. Here are a few of his sites (Most are #1 for the exact phrase along with some other similar phrases). Code: http://www.soundproofchicago.com http://www.roomadditionchicago.com http://www.roomadditionchicago.net http://computersupportchicago.com Obviously his domains are the EXACT match for the phrases he's targeting which helps. BUT, these sites basically have NO backlinks. How the hell does this get get #1 placement with NO backlinks? He wouldnt tell me how he did it but he said that he uses some paid directories as part of his process. Even though I dont see any backlinks from any directories on any of these sites. Anyone have any ideas on how this guy does it?
